United States president wants Russian Federation readmitted to G7

US President Donald Trump steps off Air Force One upon arrival at Palm Beach International in West Palm Beach, Florida on April 18, 2018.

During a recent Q & A session Putin answered a question about the chances for the WWIII with a quote from the famous physicist Albert Einstein: "I don't know with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones".

Already at the meeting of the finance ministers ahead of the G-7, the six non-U.S. countries released a statement raising concerns about US trade actions. The U.S.is meeting with Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom at the summit. Russian Federation formally joined in 1998. But in 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin alarmed world leaders after moving troops into eastern Ukraine and taking over Crimea.

Reacting to Trump's tweets, Trudeau's office said: "We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the summit". Earlier this week, Merkel said the group is defined by its members' respect of global law, and Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea was a "flagrant breach" of that.

"The nuclear energy state-owned corporation Rosatom is one of Russia's most internationally competitive companies", Lukin said.

Apparently reveling in a rift that threatens to spiral into a trade war, Trump stirred the pot by declaring before the talks began that he would like to see Russian Federation re-admitted to the club.

"Why should I, as President of the United States, allow countries to continue to make Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our Farmers, Workers & Taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay?"

Over the course of his presidency, Trump has inflamed allies with his isolationist policies, including withdrawing the USA from the Paris climate accord and the worldwide Iran-nuclear agreement.

"Why are we having a meeting without Russian Federation in the meeting?"

And other G-7 nations immediately signaled they had zero interest in welcoming Moscow back into the club.

"The other countries of the G-6 are a larger market than the American market", Macron said.

All worked on development of "offensive" cyber and underwater capabilities, posing a danger to the security of the United States and its allies, Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin said. Putin added that a thorough discussion is needed to address the issue. "Because these 6 countries represent values, they represent an economic market which has the weight of history behind it and which is now a true global force". Trudeau responded by saying the North American Free Trade Agreement was "in good shape", despite the fact that talks around renegotiating that deal have largely stalled. Trump first joked that the Canadian leader "has agreed to cut all tariffs".

Trump also had a restrained show of support for Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt, who has come under fire for using government officials to conduct personal business including trying to find him a used mattress from the Trump International Hotel and driving him around Washington in search of his favorite moisturizer.

"If Obama had done that, the criticism coming down on him would have been a fusillade, coming from Capitol Hill and congressional Republicans", said Rubin, who now teaches at Carnegie Mellon University. Ben Sasse of Nebraska in a statement.

Putin told reporters on Friday that the two leaders had discussed the situation on the Korean peninsula.

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain put it this way: "This is the antithesis of so-called "principled realism" and a sure path to diminishing America's leadership in the world".
