Prior to the G-7 summit that was held in Canada, Trump says:
“Russia should be in this meeting. Why are we having a meeting without Russia being in the meeting? And I would recommend, and it’s up to them, but Russia should be in the meeting, it should be a part of it… They should let Russia come back in.”
Russia was expelled from the G-8 back in 2014, following its annexation of Crimea.
