Russian Federation should be attending a Group of Seven summit in Canada, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday, a controversial idea that even Moscow seemed to reject, as he headed for a chilly reception at the meeting where other leaders are set to clash with him over trade.

USA stocks, apart from those of steel and aluminum producers, have fallen sharply in response to Trump's recent tariff announcements and other actions against trading partners. Trump injected further uncertainty recently when he floated the idea of replacing NAFTA with two separate trade deals, one with each country. We will straighten that out.

When the two leaders finally met late in the day, Macron was first to reach out to shake Trump's hand and the last to let go, gripping it so tight his fingers left white marks - a reprise of the long, exaggerated handshake that marked the first meeting between the two leaders previous year. He was making a passing reference to the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections and possible collusion with Trump's presidential campaign.

The G7 groups Canada, the United States, Japan, Britain, Italy, France and Germany. Representatives of the European Union will also be in attendance over the weekend.

It has also been suggested that Mr Trump had not been keen to attend the summit at all, with expected criticism and his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un looming. He spent Friday participating in the rituals of the G-7, including the formal greeting by host Trudeau, a group photo in front of the sparkling St. Lawrence River and a working lunch of Arctic char and buckwheat salad.

But the friendship failed to keep Trump from leaving the Iran nuclear deal, a decision that will have major implications for French businesses wary of triggering USA sanctions on business with Tehran.

"Getting ready to go to the G-7 in Canada to fight for our country on Trade (we have the worst trade deals ever made), then off to Singapore to meet with North Korea & the Nuclear Problem.But back home we still have the 13 Angry Democrats pushing the Witch Hunt!"




"The president has inexplicably shown our adversaries the deference and esteem that should be reserved for our closest allies", Republican Senator John McCain said. "That's the key point".

"The actual fact that we will have these discussions is good for our countries and good for the world", Mr Trudeau said, noting that there were other matters at stake besides trade, including ensuring global security and advancing gender equality.

In the days leading up to the summit, Trudeau and Macron have severely criticized Trump's new tariffs, which critics say threaten to drive up prices for American consumers and companies and heighten uncertainty for businesses and investors around the globe. If you look at what Canada, and Mexico, the European Union - all of them - have been doing to us for many, many decades ...

Mr Trump saluted Canadian Mounties as he was greeted at an airport at a military base in Quebec.

The French president tweeted his intentions. "But Russia should be in the meeting, should be a part of it".

But Trump is provoking his fellow G7 leaders by calling for Russia's reinstatement in the group, after it was kicked out for invading Ukraine four years ago.

US President Donald Trump has grown exhausted of Theresa May's "school mistress" tone, the president's allies say amid fears that the pair will not hold talks in Canada. "In the interest of all". He prefers to keep the group to seven, quipping that it is a "lucky number".
