G7 leaders struggle to salvage summit

President Donald Trump is taking more swipes at Canada and its prime minister over trade issues as he settles in for a summit with North Korea in Singapore.

Mr Trump told reporters ahead of the meeting of major industrialised nations in Quebec: "Russia should be in the meeting, should be a part of it".

Russian Federation was expelled from what was then called the G8 in 2014 because of its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.

Last month, Mr Trump pulled out of former president Barack Obama's landmark 2015 nuclear accord with Iran over the objections of European allies and other nations.

Theresa May has criticised the tariffs and also opposes Mr Trump's call for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the group of leading industrialised nations. She said the two leaders exchanged pleasantries and briefly discussed trade.

The apparent realignment has played out with dizzying speed as Trump traveled Friday to Canada for the annual Group of 7 summit.

Trump said Friday that Russian Federation should be a part of the talks - a move that was likely to find little agreement among the group.

Xi and Putin called the USA decision to leave the Iranian nuclear deal "disappointing" in their joint statement, and said it was of "fundamental importance" to protect trade relations with the Islamic Republic against "unilateral extraterritorial sanctions".

In our small world, which has been made smaller with the internet and cell phones, we can't afford to go it alone. Trump said in a second tweet. "It will start first of all to hurt USA workers".

Mr Trump retorted via Twitter: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the USA massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

"We can differently assess decisions that are taken by the United States, including by the U.S. president".

Mr Macron stressed: "No leader is eternal".

In April, the White House confirmed the two leaders spoke in a phone call about meeting at the White House "in the 'not-too-distant-future'".

Referring to the Mueller investigation, and the possibility it may result in criminal charges against him, Trump maintained he has "the absolute right to pardon myself", adding "but I'll never have to do it because I didn't do anything wrong".

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. Between that, the whole oligarchy thing and the invading other nations thing, the fact is that Russian Federation has no place in the G7 and absolutely no right to be there. Ali was convicted in 1967 of avoiding military service.

Trump said he had a list of 3,000 names for possible pardon consideration.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday floated an idea to set up a way to resolve trade disputes between the United States and its allies.
