Trump wants Russia to rejoin G-7

When asked about his favorite joke, Putin said he found allegations that his government colluded with President Donald Trump to elect the real estate tycoon in the first place, laughable.
At the same time he downplayed tensions at the acrimonious G7 meeting in Quebec City, after Trump disowned the joint summit statement and lambasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. 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.
Trump's presidency has been clouded by a federal investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, and possible collusion by his campaign.

"Today's announcement shows that the G7 will not tolerate foreign interference in any one of our democracies, that we are getting organised, and that we will take coordinated action against those who seek to violate the rules-based global system". I think it would be good the United States.
"Whether you like it or, and it may not be politically correct, but 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". It's a chance for a group of allies to gather together and discuss their common interests and how they might act together to pursue them.
Trump said of Macron, "we have a little test once in a while when it comes to trade" but also said they have a very good relationship.
Trump plans to leave the summit four hours earlier than originally planned to fly to Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the White House said.

Trump, however, repeatedly had blasted the merger, due in no small part to his opposition to CNN, which is owned by Time Warner. Shares of AT&T were about flat in after-hours trade following the decision, while Time Warner rose more than 5 percent.
