Vienna being considered as venue for possible Putin-Trump summit

Mr Johnson said Britain needs a'much more energetic approach to the UK's diplomacy to take on the growing threat posed by Vladimir Putin

At home, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer poured scorn on the Republican president's suggestion that Russian Federation should be readmitted to the G7.

In a combined effort, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau failed recently to convince Trump not to impose tariffs on the allies.

That comment has Trump squarely offside with this fellow G7 leaders, including Canada, who view Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula and its meddling in western elections as a major worldwide security concern.

Earlier this month, the U.S. imposed a 25% tariff on steel and 10% on aluminium imports from the EU, Canada, and Mexico, with Mr Trump saying tariffs were needed to reverse America's trade deficit.

But the legislation was signed reluctantly by Donald Trump, who wanted warmer ties with Moscow and had opposed the legislation as it worked its way through Congress.

"We have massive trade deficits with nearly every country". He declared, "We have to straighten it out". "And I'll tell you what, it's what I do", he said. "They understand. They're trying to act like, "Well, we fought with you in the wars" but they don't mention the fact that they have trade barriers against our farmers, they don't mention the fact that they're charging nearly 300-per-cent tariffs".

"It could be that NAFTA will be a different form".

They should try to send him to a contender, instead of having him go through the long rebuild that the Cavaliers will go begin. James finished with 23 points, eight assists and seven rebounds in what could have been his final game with the Cavaliers.

Xi and Putin also vowed to make "all possible efforts" to preserve the 2015 global accord on Iran's nuclear programme that Trump abandoned last month.

During that same call, which came shorty after Putin's latest election victory, Trump was given explicit instructions in his daily briefing materials to avoid congratulating his counterpart. "Nothing he has done since then has changed that most obvious fact", McCain said.

"I think Putin's probably going, 'Man, I wish Hillary won, '" Trump said.

The communiqué also endorsed the UK's assessment that Russian Federation was responsible for the nerve agent attack.

Before arriving at the meeting of the group, which some suggest Trump is pushing from the Group of Seven into "G-6 plus one", he further stirred the pot by asking why Russian Federation was excluded.

"Russia should be in this meeting".

To Trump's suggestion that Russian Federation be welcomed back to the group, allies had mixed responses.

Liverpool Reach Agreement With Lyon For Nabil Fekir
According to the Independent , Lyon have changed their stance and are now prepared to sell Fekir to Liverpool before the World Cup kicks off.

Putin said last month that the proposed summit between him and Trump was not working out for now and was beset by problems.

The Russian government also appeared to snub Trump's idea.

According to Sputnik News, Kremlin spokesman Dmitriy Peskov responded to Trump's call for reinstatement, saying, "Russia is focused on other formats, apart from the G7".

Other G-7 leaders may also choose to be less confrontational with Trump.

Trump's rejection of the global climate accord and Iran nuclear deal, supported by the European Union and Canada is going to be another flashpoint in the increasingly acrimonious relationship between Washington and its Western allies.

It remains uncertain whether the leaders can even agree to a final communiqué.
