President Trump on Monday defended his concept of possibly inviting Russia to next year’s G-7 meeting and stated he’ll take any political heat that comes from the decision.
Trump mentioned during a news conference at the G-7 summit in Biarritz, France that He don’t care politically. He is going to run for election. Whether President Trump wins or not, the President has to do the right thing. He doesn’t do issues for political reasons.
President Trump, who will host the 2020 gathering, reiterated that most of the world leaders at the weekend meeting, have also felt the same approach but added that no vote was taken.
President Trump stated, having them inside the room is better than having them outside the room.
President Trump went on to blame former President Barack Obama for forcing Russia out of the group after Russia illegally annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.
President Obama was not pleased this happened because it was embarrassing to him, President Trump stated. Obama wanted Russia to be out of what was called the G-8. And that was his determination.
Trump said Russian President Vladimir Putin “outsmarted” Obama with the maneuver.
President Trump continued, and president Trump can understand how President Obama would feel. He wasn’t happy, and they’re not in it for that reason.
