WASHINGTON – President Trump said other leaders in the world asked why the American media "take root" for the country to "fail" Sunday on the G-7 summit.
"The question I've been asked the most about today by other world leaders who think the US is doing so well and are stronger than ever is: & # 39; Mr. Mr President, why do the American media hate your country so much? Why are you worried that it will fail? "Trump wrote on Twitter .
The tweet comes after media reports portray Trump as flat-footed when French President Emmanuel Macron surprised G-7 participants with an invitation Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will appear on the sidelines of the summit in Biarritz, France.
When Trump was asked by reporters about Zarif's rumors, he replied, "No comment."
Marcon's invitation was followed by a tense dinner on Saturday night, where Heads of State and Government discussed the Iranian nuclear program and the inclusion of the Iranian nuclear program Russian President Vladimir Putin in future meetings believed Putin should be invited to join the G-7, from which Russia was ousted after the annexation of Crimea.
On Sunday, Trump seemed to say he was "concerned" about his ongoing trade with China ̵
the trade war with China. "His answer was heavily misinterpreted," said Grisham. His answer was interpreted very wrongly. President Trump said yes because he regrets not having raised the tariffs.
White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said the president "did not exactly hear the question," although reporters had asked her three different ways to ensure customs compliance. President was rightly understood.
Before Zarif arrived, Kudlow said the G7 meeting had been a success so far.
"In my opinion, the meeting this morning was indeed the entire conference – including the unexpected lunch. The relationship between President Trump and President Macron has gone very well, better than we thought, with a very positive mood," Kudlow said. "So I'll go a long way and say it was a solid gathering."
