Trump vows to deal with ‘unfair trade’ 

La Malbaie, Quebec: Donald Trump made a shock call today for Russia to be readmitted into the G7 as he headed for a showdown with America’s closest allies at a summit set to be dominated by a roiling trade dispute.Trump was to be the last Group of Seven leader to arrive in Canada for the two-day summit, and tomorrow he will probably be the first to leave, in a hurry to move on to his nuclear summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un in Singapore.But battlelines were drawn even before he arrived, in a series of dueling tweets and statements between Trump and his former friend President Emmanuel Macron of France over Washington’s imposition of tariffs on imports from US allies.And Trump caused more eyebrows to be raised by telling reporters that he wanted Russia-which was expelled from the group of the world’s most industrialised nations after annexing Crimea-to be brought back into the fold.“They threw Russia out. They should let Russia come back in because we should have Russia at the negotiating table,” he said before boarding Air Force One.With unmistakable symbolism, the fractious Western democracies were meeting on the same day that China’s President Xi Jinping welcomed his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to Beijing and awarded him a friendship medal.
