Trump blasts Canada, calls for Russian Federation to be returned to G8

Maria Repnikova, director of the Center for Global Information Studies at Georgia State University in the USA, said China makes Russian Federation look "stronger and more relevant" on the global stage.

But the prime minister warned against a "tit-for-tat" response. We responded from the very beginning that such personal meetings were not just a possibility but were useful ...

In his meeting, Mr. Trudeau made the case once again against the US tariffs and pressed Mr. Trump to not levy similar tariffs on Canadian auto exports, an idea being contemplated by the White House.

"Look, all of these countries have been taking advantage of the United States on trade", Trump told reporters as he left the White House, repeating his longstanding complaints about trade deficits and tariffs.

Donald Trump is due to fly into Quebec on Friday morning for a G7 meeting which, even before it has begun, is already on the way to being the most acrimonious in the summit's history.

"Looking forward to straightening out unfair Trade Deals with the G-7 countries".

A senior British government source said Russian Federation needs to change its approach before any conversation about it rejoining the G7 can begin.

On the eve of the summit, Trump lashed out on Twitter at Macron and Trudeau, who earlier Friday criticized Trump's trade stance a joint news conference in Ottawa.

The US military says its forces operate on an "advise and assist" mission with the Somali National Army. The US troops were on a training mission with local Somali and Kenyan forces when the attack occurred.

Last month, President Donald Trump pulled out of former President Barack Obama's landmark 2015 nuclear accord with Iran over the objections of European allies and other nations. He also said he hopes to improve Russian-American relations. "We have a world to run and in the G7, which used to be the G8 they threw Russian Federation out, they should let Russian Federation come back in", he said at the G7 meeting in Canada's La Malbaie.

Adding an extra layer of friction to the gathering, Trump suggested that Russian Federation - which was expelled following the annexation of Crimea - should be allowed to rejoin the group. In a joint statement, then-President Barack Obama and other world leaders condemned Russia's actions as "violat [ing] the principles upon which the global system is built".

Velshi picked up on the "you're not more important to me because you're an ally" aspect of what Trump is doing on trade.

Since Mr. Trump slapped tariffs on steel and aluminum, these leaders have taken a more confrontational approach.

Prior to leaving Washington, Trump appeared unenthusiastic about the summit, complaining to aides about having to attend, particularly with his Singapore sit-down with Kim right around the corner.

At the G7, only Italy's new populist Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said he agreed that Moscow should be back in the fold.

"Let's leave the G7 as it is.it's a lucky number at least in our culture", he said.
