Xi touts Putin ties as United States tensions bring them closer

Trump wants Russia to rejoin G-7 Trump wants Russia to rejoin G-7 Donald Trump

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.

"I cordially congratulate you on the state holiday - Russia Day".

The G-7 still represents almost half the world's total gross domestic product, but it has slipped behind the nations of the SCO, when economic power is measured using a formula that adjusts for the relative value of currencies and their purchasing power.

"There is a feeling, I think, over the last few months that that approach has not borne fruit, and that they haven't really gotten anything for that friendly approach", Wright said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin recently talked about how Russia has to carefully consider its participation in the development of cryptocurrency.

"In the future we'll be talking about future trade relations, but of course the security relationship that underpins the UK's long-standing special relationship with the United States is of particular importance to us".

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.

"The rules-based worldwide order is being challenged, not by the usual suspects but by its main architect and guarantor: the United States", said European Council President Donald Tusk.

"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 attended the 44th G7 summit which kicked off in Charlevoir, Canada on Friday.

"I agree with him", he said.
