Trump Defends Plan to Invite Russia to G-7

President Trump plans to invite Russia to the G-7 for the first time since they were kicked out in 2014. The G-7 will be held in the United States this year.

According to The Hill:

President Trump on Wednesday defended his plans to invite Russia to the Group of Seven (G-7) summit this year despite its expulsion from the group in 2014, arguing that it’s “common sense” to do so.

The president was asked on Brian Kilmeade‘s Fox News Radio show whether Russian President Vladimir Putin deserved to be readmitted to the group of world leaders.

“It’s not a question of what he’s done, it’s a question of common sense,” Trump said. “We have a G-7, he’s not there. Half of the meeting is devoted to Russia and he’s not there.”

The president cited Putin’s cooperation with the recent oil crisis when the industry was in dire straits due to the coronavirus pandemic, though he acknowledged it also benefited Russia. Trump also reasoned that it would be easier to negotiate a new nuclear pact if Putin were in the room.

Trump has announced that the G-7 will be postponed until the fall due to the pandemic but that he plans to invite non-member countries Australia, India, Russia, and South Korea to the event.

I agree 100%… Russia has never been as underhanded as the Chinese and yet all those complaining surely want China to be at the meeting. I will never understand liberal logic.

You will never understand Liberal logic because it is illogical and based on emotion not facts!

the obama Socialist Regime made Millions by kissing Communist China’s Ass and all it got this Country was loss of jobs, of manufacturing and a very unhealthy dependency on them for just about all of our medication. The obama Socialist Regime allowed the Democrats/Leftists/Liberals/Socialists to line their pockets at the expense of the American People. This is the real reason they hate President Trump he is cutting into their profit margin and that is what they really hate.

Why has common sense become so controversial. Oh, I know….because it’s Trump who’s got it.

The entire Democrat party should be locked up in a mental institution for undermining the national security of the USA and giving in to the demands of the most extreme fringe groups in the US population and furthering the goals of Communist radicals. The radicals need to be fingerprinted and their DNA collected so that they can be absolutely identified and traced to their leaders and financiers.

Well, I just hope that the rioters won’t be around because Putin will be in trouble since Russia is not so into communism any more like the rioters are and the rioters will let Putin know he should be practicing pure communism like the rioters want in this country. Just saying we all know what is the real reason behind the rioters and their tearing down our cities. It’s to make the people think the only ones who can save the people is the rioters, an old technique of gaining control by the communists.
