Trump wants Russian Federation back in the G7, contradicting his own campaign

US trade tariffs are economic sanctions in disguise says Putin

Chinese President Xi Jinping treated Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to a state visit on Friday as the neighbouring giants forged closer ties in the face of US diplomatic and economic challenges. "And that the Crimea-related sanctions against Russian Federation must remain in place until Russian Federation returns full control to the people of Ukraine".

Trump railed against trade deficits with other countries.

. "Last year, we supplied more than 50 million tons of oil".

During a call with Putin in March Trump was urged to discuss allegations of Russian meddling and to condemn a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in England earlier this month.

In today's postings, Trump says he is heading to Canada for G7 talks that will mostly centre on the longtime, unfair trade practices aimed at the United States. "We have to get past the notion that going to these meetings is some kind of reward".

"All of these countries have been taking advantage of the United States on trade", he said before flying out.

Trump reiterated his belief that he has been tough on Russian Federation, before calling for President Vladimir Putin to be given a seat at the table with the small group of influential world leaders. He declared, "We have to straighten it out". And I'll tell you what, it's what I do. "If it doesn't happen, we come out even better!", he states.

Trump was heading into a bigger controversy over trade as other G7 leaders, including host Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, have been angered by Washington's imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminium imported from allies including Canada and the European Union.

"So, if I can get the president to actually realize that what he's doing is counterproductive for his own goals as well, then perhaps we can move forward in a smarter way".

In a combined effort, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau failed recently to convince Trump not to impose tariffs on the allies.

Canada has countered with a plan to impose tariffs of its own on USA metals and other consumer goods.

Since the heads of state of China, Russia and Mongolia held their first meeting more than three years ago, the three countries have centered on aligning China's Belt and Road Initiative with Russia's development strategies, especially its transcontinental rail plan, and Mongolia's "development path" initiative, deepened cooperation and yielded results, said Xi.

"The president will travel directly to Singapore from Canada in anticipation of his upcoming meeting with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un Tuesday", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders said in a statement. Later the leaders were to tuck into a dinner of lobster, asparagus and maple leaves nestled on a brioche at the end of the first day of talks. The two have met more than 20 times.

"Russia is focussed on other formats, apart from the G7", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a brief statement reported by the government-controlled Sputnik news agency.
