Trump calls for Russia to be readmitted to G7, threatens allies on trade

 

US President Donald Trump will leave the G7 summit after one day, an unexpected schedule change that followed public trading of insults between Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Trump is scheduled to meet with Macron and Trudeau on Friday, and then he will leave the G-7 summit early on Saturday, an unexpected schedule change that will pull him out of discussions on climate change.

Macron on Thursday said Trump was isolating the United States and suggested foreign leaders might simply wait until Trump’s time in the White House has concluded before re-engaging with the United States. Trump, meanwhile, said Trudeau was acting “indignant” and attacked the US’ northern neighbour in a series of Twitter posts, focusing in part on Canadian dairy policy.
