The collapse of the global economy seemed to weigh on the president. He told reporters he has his own concerns.
"I've thought about everything," he said.
In one turn, he mitigated his threat to drive US companies out of China – although he had insisted a day before that was able to do it with his executive.
"I do not have a plan at the moment, in fact we are very well acquainted with China right now, we are talking," said Trump.
It was a start with the G7 summits, which are usually friendly and in partnership. Even a spontaneous Saturday lunch between Trump and his host, Emmanuel Macron, seemed to be an attempt by the French president to engage Trump in a discussion on climate change and trade.
Trump insisted that the food was the best meeting they had ever had. But later, American officials complained that the meeting was taking place without warning, and represented a first attempt by Macron to tune its summit on issues that separate Trump from other leaders.
Far more friendly was a Sunday morning breakfast with Boris Johnson, the newly-installed British Prime Minister, in whom Trump sees a more natural ally.
"Do you know who that is?" Trump Reporter asked pointing to Johnson as the men descended a large staircase in Trump's Hotel. "He will be a fantastic Prime Minister."
Later, when Trump ate scrambled eggs and veal sausage, he admitted he was more connected to Johnson than his predecessor Downing Street, Theresa May.
"He needs no advice Real man for the job, I've said that for a long time, it did not make your predecessor happy, "Trump said.
replied the minister.
His breakfast meeting with the British Prime Minister was the culmination of The G7 Agenda for Trump, who looked forward to finding a partner amid tensions with other nations over trade and foreign affairs.
Together, Trump hopes that he and Johnson will be able to counter something that, according to the US government officials, he considers to be the left wing of other European leaders.
Nevertheless, Trump is deeply unpopular throughout Europe, including Britain. And stylistic similarities do not necessarily reflect profound political agreements, except in relation to the Brexit issue.
This was revealed on Sunday when Trump claimed during his breakfast that he had heard no complaints about the commercial lawsuits.
I did not hear that. I think they respect the trade war. It must happen, "said Trump.
Johnson corrected him quickly.
The Trade War: We are by and large for trade peace," he said. "We believe Britain has benefited massively from free trade over the last 200 years and we want to see that, so we're looking forward to it, we do not like tariffs on the whole."
This was an early sign of the impending G7: Heads of State and Government rejected Trump's tariff regime, which was blamed for depressing national economies and causing turmoil on the stock markets.
Trump tried this thought www.mjfriendship.de/de/index.php?op…80&Itemid=58 On Sunday, when he messed around with his G7 colleagues despite open differences in the use of tariffs or his environmental footprint G – 7 are very tense, and this two-day meeting will be a disaster, "he wrote on Twitter. "Well, we have very good meetings, the Heads of State and Government understand each other very well, and our country is doing a great business economically – the talk of the world!"
This touch of optimism was denied by complaints from US officials The summit was organized by its French hosts to highlight issues that benefit French President Emmanuel Macron and to demonstrate Trump's isolation.
"The G-7 is in danger of getting completely lost," said Larry Kudlow, Chief Economic Advisor to Trump
Second thoughts on the quarrel
Other American officials who traveled with the president said they believed Macron deliberately add meetings to the summit Trump is to defend against his leadership colleagues.
Trump himself had stated before the summit that, as at previous meetings, the G7 was too focused on issues such as ocean plastics and global empowerment of women – and not the global economy. on which the organization was originally founded.
At the last minute, US officials added a Sunday morning session on the economy to rebalance the agenda. But Trump has seen the additional meeting as an opportunity to brag about the American economy and its role in countries where growth slows.
It is unlikely that Trump will meet well with other leaders, most of whom are reluctant to blame Trump's trade war with China for economic burden.
