Trump barrels into G-7 summit, ready to fight United States allies

President Trump has been privately griping about attending the G7 meeting in Canada this weekend, telling aides it would be a distraction while he was preparing for his summit next week with Kim Jong-un, a new report said Thursday.

You know, whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run.

Donald Trump is ramping up his blast of Canada on Twitter this morning over what he says are unfair trade practices as the USA president prepares to make his Canadian debut later today.

"They should let Russian Federation come back in".

Russia was ousted from the group after the annexation of Crimea by pro-Russian separatists in 2014.

President Trump contended, though, that he has been Russia's "worst nightmare" when it comes to increased sanctions and global pressure and that it would be more productive for Russian Federation to be involved in the meetings between the countries.

"Trump said he was attending the G7 summit to "[straighten] out unfair Trade Deals" with Canada, France and other close US allies, he tweeted early Friday.

The reporter discovered that one Blackberry app was able to acquire " identifying information " for up to 295,000 Facebook users. In what Facebook says was misuse of the data, the contractor sold it to Cambridge to build voter-profiling technology.

Trump says he hopes to resolve what he considers unfair trade agreements with USA allies during his time at the G-7 summit in Quebec on Friday and Saturday.

She acknowledged that Canada and the USA have disagreed on significant issues in the past - such as the Vietnam and Iraq wars - and still have differences today when it comes to things like climate change and the steel and aluminum tariffs.

"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.

The US president was very much the odd man out on climate change during the G7 in Italy previous year, later announcing his intention to withdraw from the landmark Paris agreement.

"President Putin is the leader of a great country who is influential around the world", Xi said.

Asked about Trump's tariffs earlier in the day, Spain's Economy Minister Roman Escolano said that most countries at the summit shared the "belief that protectionism is a huge historical mistake". "I have been Russia's worst nightmare", Trump said, in apparent reference to accusations that he has been soft on Moscow.

"Looking forward to straightening out unfair Trade Deals with the G-7 countries".

On the eve of the summit, Trump lashed out on Twitter at Macron and Trudeau, who earlier Friday criticized Trump's trade stance a joint news conference in Ottawa. "But now we are seeing that this is happening".

Already angered by Trump's imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminum - and planning to respond with measures of their own that could spiral into a trade war - the allies now fear a rift in the united western front against Russian aggression.

France's President Emmanuel Macron sought to put on an optimistic face after meeting twice with Trump for a "very open and direct discussion", saying on the issue of trade "there is a critical path, there is a way to progress altogether".

In one phone call, the Canadian PM scoffed at the idea that Canada posed a national security threat to the United States, the administration's pretext for imposing the steep tariffs on imported aluminum and steel.

Leaders of the G7 group of nations will continue their meeting in Canada today.
