My problem is it sounds like Trump is praising Putin for outsmarting Obama in taking Crimea. Was what Putin did bad, or was Obama just a dummy who is angry? That’s his argument for why Russia should be back in the Gwhatever, Obama is a sore loser dummy and Russia was punished for it.
Ministers and civil servants from the G7 countries meet throughout the year to discuss matters of mutual interest.
Each member nation takes over the G7 presidency for a year on a rolling basis and hosts the annual centrepiece two-day summit meeting.
Energy policy, climate change, HIV/Aids and global security are just some of the subjects discussed at past summits."
I have to say that looking at the list of principles the G7 see themselves as embodying, those leaders must be almost all completely lacking in self-awareness. Putin and Russia would be no more a stranger to those principles than the rest of the G7 nations.
Trump is going to start his own cool club the N5 (Nationalist five) or N6 (Nationalist six) or whatever. One that actually aspires to the principles the G7 (Global seven) appropriates and gives lipservice to, but subverts within their own borders. And Trump may not let those cool kids in until they start to put their own citizens first. Maybe he could call it the CF5, 6 or 7… (the citizens first five, six or seven…)
