Trump postpones G-7 meeting again, plans to invite four more countries

Source: Politico

President Donald Trump announced Saturday he is postponing the G-7 summit until September and plans to invite four additional non-member nations including Russia.

The president, speaking to reporters aboard an Air Force One flight back to Washington from Kennedy Space Center, said he plans to expand the annual meeting of the world's most economically advanced nations to include Australia, India, Russia and South Korea, according to a pool report.

11. That was my first thought. I figured he'd invite Russia, even though it's not part of the G7.

He must always dance to Putin's tune.

He'll probably use space required by the additional invitations as an excuse to move the event back to the Doral. In addition to adding to the cash flow of a failing property, he can justify spending taxpayer money to completely upgrade the resort -- new carpet, new paint, new furniture and beds for the suites, new silverware (with his name and the presidential seal on each piece) and China place settings (design matches the silverware), redo the grounds, including ripping up existing foliage and replacing it with news plants. He might not charge for the use of the facility, but he'll get tens of millions of dollars in upgrades.

6. When September rolls around, the other leaders will tell him again that they aren't coming.

The other leaders in the G-7 can't stand him. They'll find a reason not to come.

He'll have a G-3. Trump along with his fellow autocrats Putin and Kim.

14. Not China, either

Brazil would fit in with Trump's attitude; maybe he was afraid Bolsonaro would out-Trump him. China would just oppose him, so there would be no way he'd want them.

15. Bet Bolsonarro would come.

Aside from PUtin who is driivng the worldwide rw killing bus, Bolsonaro is the only one nearly as bad (my Brazilian SIL says he's worse) as drumpf. He too is killing his people on purpose for the rich.

When he's inviting Russia to the fucking G7 summit??? Is this some kind of new math?

16. Does Fat Donnie alone get to make the decision who attends the summit?

I thought the G-7 was a group of countries that joined together to pursue common economic goals. Like most groups, they have rules about who are to be admitted to the club. Russia hadn't demonstrated its willingness to play by the rules, and was kicked out, which has annoyed Trump to no end.

What gives him the right to decide unilaterally who's in the group? Or is he playing autocrat again? Clearly inviting Australia, India and South Korea is just cover for sneaking Russia in through the back door. Once Putin's got a seat at the table again he can continue to wreak economic chaos on the West.

27. Trump wants as many countries as possible to attend

Then he will have it at his Mar-a-lago "Compound" and charge astronomical room rents. Never give up a chance for a Major Grift......

I'm sure Jared and Ivanka will come up with some very expensive and major improvements that need to be made to Mar-a-lago before the guests arrive, and the cost will be reimbursed from the U.S. Treasury!

18. So, not a G-7 meeting.

 

Just an international confab. No requirement for any G-7 country to attend.

22. I suspect that this event will be postponed or canceled. Most countries do have other ...

more pressing needs on the table, such as dealing w/ the CV, and its associated issues, instead of playing politics and other d**khead games that rump wants to play. Now its time for serious governing and no one believes in rump's promises or lies anymore.
