Putin Expects Trump to Fulfill Pre-Election Promise, Improve Ties With Russia

In the week leading up to the G7 (Group of Seven) meeting, many were starting to call it the G6 +1, since Trump was doing everything in his power to alienate the other 6.

Trump joined the leaders of major industrialized nations in an idyllic Canadian resort town after days of escalating conflict over new USA tariffs he slapped on imports of steel and aluminum.

Russian Federation was pushed out of the then G8 due to its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea four years ago. At this point it's hard to justify adding Russian Federation to the G-7 when we aren't adding an ally like South Korea, not to mention China, India or Brazil, since they all have larger and more globally significant economies than Russian Federation does.

The contacts have emerged amid a deepening Justice Department investigation into whether Russian banker and lifetime NRA member Alexander Torshin illegally channeled money through the gun rights group to add financial firepower to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential bid. I think it would be good for Russian Federation. He spent Friday participating in the rituals of the G-7, including the formal greeting by host Trudeau, a group photo in front of the sparkling St. Lawrence River and a working lunch of Arctic char and buckwheat salad. "I think it would be good for the world".

Moreover, later news came that Trump had not only mentioned the possibility of a meeting but also invited Putin to Washington. "Let us be serious and worthy of our people", Macron's office said in a statement obtained by Le Monde.

Mr Trump was already at odds with the rest of the group - the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan - over the imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminium.

President Donald Trump has opened his second day at an global summit at a breakfast discussion on gender equality.

"We have been a faithful player to this commitment, we've done our best, we've shown our good intentions".

"According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with USA (guess they were bragging and got caught!)".

Trump, before jumping on Air Force One to fly to Canada which is hosting the G7 summit, called for a return to the body's pre-2014 "G8" formula.

Putin, who has previously told Europe he had warned them about the trade threat Washington posed to them, also said that if Trump imposed new tariffs on imports of foreign cars it would have serious consequences for the global economy and especially for Europe.

In Charlevoix, Trump held a brief one-on-one meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, according to press secretary Sarah Sanders. "Everyone agreed, including President Trump".

The president tweeted that he was heading for Canada "for talks that will mostly center on the long time unfair trade practiced against the United States".

Hussain said that China is a reliable friend and steady partner of Pakistan, and relations between the two countries are unshakable. He arrived behind schedule and planned an early leave from the G7 meeting Saturday morning for Singapore for his highly anticipated summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
