Trump Postpones the G-7 Summit and Taunts China

President Trump has postponed a Group of Seven summit scheduled to be held next month until September or later.

The United States currently holds the presidency of the Group of 7 industrialized nations, which also includes Germany, Japan, France, Britain, Canada and Italy.

The summit was scheduled to take place Wednesday, June 10 to Friday, June 12 in Washington D.C.

Trump postponed the summit not long after German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she wouldn’t attend amid the coronavirus panic.

Speaking to reporters on Air Force One during his return to Washington from Cape Canaveral in Florida, he said, “I’m postponing it because I don’t feel that as a G7 it properly represents what’s going on in the world.”

Trump said he wants to invite Russia, South Korea, Australia and India to the meeting.

White House spokeswoman Alyssa Farah said Trump wants the countries to discuss China at the summit.

Nothing can come out of this bizarre taunting of China.

Peace comes about because of trade, this is certainly not a step in that direction.

  1. It's still lost on your ignorant libertardian head that China is run by hard core communist. Nothing was gained by shipping American manufacturing over to China. Next you will be telling me we should have open borders with them as well. Libertarian/libertardian, you people are so stupid in some ways.
