Trump says Russian Federation should be reinstated ahead of stormy G7 summit

Heather Conley, director of the Europe program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said Trump seems to draw no distinction between allies who share the USA values of market economics and democracy, and adversaries who do not, and in the process he's upending decades of American foreign policy.

Putin said that during his last telephone conversation with the USA president, Trump "expressed his concern about the threat of a new round of the arms race".

Chinese leader Xi Jinping called for the Iran nuclear deal to be "earnestly" implemented as he met the country's president following the USA withdrawal from the pact, state media said Monday.

Peter Navarro tells "Fox News Sunday" that's what Trudeau did to Trump at the end of the Group of Seven nations meeting in Canada over the weekend. "Whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run", Trump said.

Canada and other USA allies are retaliating with tariffs on US exports.

When Trump was pressed about the annexation of Crimea, he placed the blame on President Barack Obama for failing to handle the situation.

Trump says he will depart shortly for Singapore on a "mission of peace".

For its part, Russian Federation allows China to show the USA that it has "other options" in global negotiations, she said.

Sebastian Mallaby, a senior fellow with the Council on Foreign Relations, described the relationships between the USA and the rest of the G-7 as at a "new level of crisis", saying that it was not just about trade but "a general US attitude toward the system". The White House did not say what the president would talk about. His new tariffs - 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on aluminum from Canada, Mexico and the European Union - threaten to drive up prices for American consumers and companies and heighten uncertainty for businesses and investors around the globe.

The French presidential assistant had stated that the trade dialogue between the United States and European Union will initiate in a fortnight at a technical level.

But Trump struck a more affable tone after a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, saying the French leader was helping work out trade issues. Trump has pointed to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's criticism of him as a reason for withdrawing from the consensus statement. The two leaders will nearly certainly ignore such "mundane" matters as climate change or gender equality; their views on migration are also quite far apart; and the joint counter-terrorism agenda is effectively exhausted.

The G-7 has a long history.

Trump was seated between Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, and Christine Whitecross, a Canadian lieutenant general.

Putting a courageous face on a failed effort by President Donald Trump to have Russia readmitted to the world's most exclusive diplomatic club, Russian President Vladimir Putin said the G-7 represented fewer people and had less economic heft than the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. Then he tried to ease tension with friendly banter and vague claims of progress in trade talks. This will set the clear differences among the members rather than opting for a virtual path, making the world misunderstand that everything is going on the right track. Trump said it should be readmitted, an idea that was unlikely to gain any traction at the G7 gathering, which groups Canada, the United States, Japan, Britain, Italy, France and Germany.
