  • Merkel G-7 summit with Trump was a'sobering experience

Representatives of European Union countries at the G7 meeting in Quebec agreed that the conditions to readmit Russian Federation to the group of advanced economies were not yet met, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday that he was in favor of Russia's return to the G8.

The image was shared shortly after Trump held a press conference before departing the summit to head to Singapore for his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

President Trump's top economic adviser has defended Donald Trump's move to increase tariffs and says his boss should not be held responsible for mounting trade conflicts with U.S. allies.

The president also denied the G7 meetings were contentious but maintained his confrontational stance. Now...we are going to fix that situation.

The photo was posted on Twitter by Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert, crediting it to official German government photographer Jesco Denzel. But his relationship with fellow G7 leaders was at "10 out of 10".

"Well, if they retaliate, they're making a mistake", Trump told reporters Saturday when asked about what might happen if those countries did not agree. We have a great relationship.

"He did not back away or blunt his critiques, and despite first-name references to "Angela" and "Justin", Trump did little to disguise his distrust of the worldwide consensus model of world affairs that the G-7 represents". Despite this, they were seen to be on good terms, and President Macron's team said his talks with Trump were "frank and robust".
