BBC news about the G7



but we have a world to run and in the G7, which used to be the G8, they threw Russia out. They should let Russia come back in."

News Article


Not content with just starting a trade war with America’s supposed allies, Donald Trump risked enraging G7 allies further by suggesting that Russia should be reinstated as a member.




Trump’s musings about re-admitting Russia are sure to further irritate other members of the G7, many of whom have had to deal with Kremlin-related meddling over the last year. In March, the U.K. accused the Kremlin of using a deadly nerve agent to poison a former Russian spy on British soil. Meanwhile, both France and Germany have had with Russia meddling in their recent elections.


I caught this earlier, Trump now wants Russia back on the G7, even contradicting his own promise on the National Security and Defence section of his “Promises Kept” website. The Trump re-election campaign highlights almost two-dozen actions the Trump administration has taken against Russia to punish those who seek to undermine American democracy and stability. Angela Merkel said all the EU members there, had agreed that Russia could not be readmitted unless there was "progress" on the Ukraine problem. Russia was originally expelled from the G8 because of the annexation of Crimea. I think Trump seems to be speaking without putting his brain in gear here. Russian should eventually be allowed back into the G7 but progress needs to be made with Crimea, Putins support of the Ukraine sepratists and the hacking and meddling of elections across the world.

Making the G7 the G8 was only to make Russia feel included. The fact that the G7 comprises the seven largest advanced economies who are democracies should rule out Russia's attendance. When Russia was initially included in the G7 there were hopes of Russian modernisation and acceptance of democracy, and none of those have come to pass.

Hope the rest of the G7 keep Russia out.

Trump just now on tv told the world that it's Obama's fault that Russia invaded the Ukraine.
Isn't that nice to know? It's Obama's fault. This turd is so pathetic.
I can't wait to find out what kind of dirt Russia is holding over him. It's so obvious that they are.

Russia seems to be going backwards to more of a "USSR" type of democracy, can't really call it a democracy to be honest.

I haven't been bothered one way or another when it comes to Trump, I try not to get involved in American politics unless it concerns my neck of the woods so to speak, but the last few weeks seem to be news article after news article that are having consequences around the world, and Trump seems to be throwing his toys out of the pram, instead of being diplomatic about his concerns.

He is acting in Russia’s interests

their goal for some time now has been to drive a wedge between America and Europe and provoke Political hatred in the west with their online army posting the virtual ammo that is being used to divide left and right

Exactly. Russia on top of everything else just doesn't have the economy to participate. I heard someone say their economy is on par with Italy and they are just barely making it.

Let's hope they don't decide to keep us out too.

Except that Crimea wasn't annexed, they held a referendum which was allegedly swayed by Vlads little green men.

Given this trackrecord of crap, with a war on it's people, a botched MH17 investigation and the faking of a journalists death, Muddi will have a hard time to keep Ukrainian talking points alive there.

This is actually the first time, that I've head the Don saying something entirely reasonable. Where's the hook?

Ill tell you why Trump wants Russia back in-its because he wants the moolah.

Even before he was nominated Trump had a vested interest in Russia-he wanted to build more towers, casinos and so forth, but Putin was not a fan so Trump got grumpy and showed his displeasure publicly, now he wants him back in so he can placate him in order to do business.

Some folk need to realize that Putin is playing Trump like a fiddle. A former KGB agent versus a man who has gone bankrupt on multiple occasions? there will only be one winner.

Like I've been saying, Trump cares more about doing deals with Russian and Chinese Oligarchs than running our country. He is a disgrace.

Yeah, I've noticed how vile ATS has become lately with the "Political hatred" between the "left" and "right", long gone are the discussions, now its just name calling and pointing out left this or the right that.

Trump seems more interested in promoting "The Trump" more recently than doing real politics with other world leaders, maybe Kim will let him build a Trump tower in North Korea.

Yeah it’s a real shame, I’m guessing most people are centre left or centre right of politics and have pretty similar views but that Russian influenced wedge is a bigger wall than Trump could dream of building
