Trump Calls for Russia to Rejoin G7, Exacerbating Rift with Allies

https://www.nationalreview.com/news/...t-with-allies/

President Trump called on allies to reinstate Russia as part of the G7 Friday, deepening a rift over trade policy that spilled out on Twitter just days ahead of the summit in Canada.

“Russia should be in this meeting,” Trump told reporters at the White House immediately before departing for the summit. “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. You know, whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run and the G-7 — which used to be the G-8, they threw Russia out — they should let Russia come back in because we should have Russia at the negotiating table.”

Russia was expelled from the G7 in 2014 in retaliation for its annexation of the Crimean peninsula — a violation of international law that drew universal condemnation from U.S. allies.

The unexpected show of support for Russia came after Trump traded blows on Twitter with French president Emmanuel Macron and Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau over a perceived imbalance in the trade relationship between the United States and its allies.
Comments

Following the Twitter spat, the White House announced late Thursday that Trump would not attend a session dedicated to climate change on Saturday morning, announcing that he would instead fly directly to Singapore to meet with Kim Jong-un.

The public back-and-forth came days after the Trump administration imposed significant steel and aluminum tariffs on a number of U.S. allies, including European Union nations and Canada, after initially exempting the countries from the protectionist measure. Both Canada and the E.U. have challenged Trump’s national-security justification for the tariffs in complaints filed with the World Trade Organization, and both have also announced retaliatory tariffs.

Yea the irony is pretty epic when Obama loved to "lead from behind."

All these crybabies are missing a very very vital point, our "allies" need us much more than we need them.

End of story.

Justin Raimondo, a libertarian, wrote the best editorial on this meeting as he puts down the Euro-weenies. He's a riot. It's long, but a great read, but will part of it up.
America: A Prisoner of Our ‘Allies’
Trump vs. Merkel & Co.

The political class is screaming bloody murder over Trump’s performance at the G-7 meeting in Canada, where he reportedly spent most of the time detailing how much the US was paying for the defense of our vaunted “allies,” not to mention the high tariffs imposed on American goods.

He then proposed a “free trade zone” in which member countries would drop all tariffs, subsidies, and other barriers to trade: the “allies” didn’t like that much, either. Nor did the alleged advocates of free trade here in the US give him any credit for ostensibly coming around to their point of view.
[Include Chiefzilla in this part] Which reminds me of something Murray Rothbard said about this issue:
“If authentic free trade ever looms on the policy horizon, there’ll be one sure way to tell. The government/media/big-business complex will oppose it tooth and nail.”
Of course the Euro-weenies don’t want real free trade: after all, they practically invented protectionism. What they want is a free ride, at Uncle Sam’s expense, and the reason they hate Trump is because they know the freebies are over. ...

Part of this is due to the effects of advanced TDS – Trump Derangement Syndrome – but the reality is that these people are not real Americans: they despise the idea of national sovereignty, which they consider an atavistic remnant of prehistoric times, and, if they live and work in Washington, D.C., chances are good that they directly or indirectly make their living by serving some foreign lobby or interest group. They’re a fifth column inside the US, working against the interests of ordinary Americans and on behalf of some abstract idea of the “world order” – which is usually a synonym for the interests of some gigantic multinational corporate entity.

Speaking of gigantic multinational corporate entities, trillionaire George Soros is very cranky these days: the Trump era just doesn’t agree with him! “Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong,” he whines. That’s good news for opponents of our globalist foreign policy – and bad news for the subsidized Washington policy wonks, the goody-two-shoes internationalists, and the wild-eyed warmongers who make up the foreign policy Establishment (a.k.a. the “Blob”.

Soros is the spirit of internationalism personified. He practically started the Kosovo war single-handedly: it was he who funded the interlocking network of propaganda-spewing outfits that agitated for intervention, and his international apparatus of thinktanks and NGOs is lobbying for US intervention today – from Macedonia to Myanmar – with a budget of billions. [Think about that some of you hawks.]

Sure, end of story.

"Should we share this info with the US?"

"No, I don't think so, let them work their own investigations that occur on European soil from now on."

"You're right. American First."

The level of ignorance about why having trusted allies is important is astounding.
