Trump has withdrawn from his recent threat of trade war with China.
President Trump rejected a threat to escalate his trade war with China, admitting that he had "just pondered" just two days after ordering US companies in Twitter statements that were causing turmoil in global markets British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in his comments before breakfast that he had "currently no plans" to use the international emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977 to force companies to leave China, as a punishment for the country's trading practices.
But he added, "Actually, we're just fine with China. We're talking. I think they want to finish much more than me.
Mr. Trump's tone was a sudden departure from his more threatening and threatening statements, including a tweet that "ordered American companies to immediately look it up" for an alternative to China. "
In a series of later tweets, Mr. Trump responded to China's trafficking by further escalating tariffs on Chinese goods.
In France on Sunday, when Mr. Trump was asked if this was the case After thinking about his aggressive attitude towards China, he said, "Yeah, sure, why not?" But he did not give any further explanation which political positions he might reconsider.
"Could too. Could be, too, "he said. "I thought about everything."
Johnson, praised by Trump as "the right man" for Brexit, has a difficult balance to find.
President Trump has called on Sunday the new British Prime Minister Boris Johnson as "the right man" to conduct the Brexit, and talked about the prospects of supporting the project by concluding a "very large trade agreement" with Britain that's bigger than we've ever been before.
The comments followed a breakfast between the two leaders and their advisers, their first personal meeting since Mr. Johnson had become Prime Minister last month.
Mr. Johnson has stated that he intends to negotiate an agreement with the European Union by 31 October, when Britain's resignation is planned, but he also promised to hold Brexit at that time with or without agreement
. Johnson is trying to find a difficult balance between the bloc and Mr. Trump, an advocate for Brexit and a critic of the European Union's trade policy. The Prime Minister needs a favorable trade agreement with the United States to cushion economic losses by easing relations with the European Union, Britain's largest trading partner.
What could be achieved with such an agreement or when is unclear. And the meeting with Mr. Trump on Sunday, which is unpopular with many Britons, has shown that Mr. Johnson must be careful for domestic reasons.
British critics fear that a trade agreement with the US could harm the National Health Service by forcing it to pay more for medicines and to allow food imports below lower standards than in Europe.
Mr. Johnson said he had explained these objections to the president, suggesting that there would be "tough talks".
The Prime Minister will also meet in Biarritz with Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, to discuss Brexit.
"I still hope Prime Minister Johnson does not like to go down in history as a Mr. No Deal," Tusk said.
Trump predicted good news about trade with Japan.
President Trump made a breakthrough in talks with Japan on Sunday morning, stating that the United States is "very close" to a major trade agreement.
"We are working on a very big agreement with Japan and we are on the verge of getting it," he told reporters. "It will be one of the biggest deals we have ever made with Japan."
He did not disclose further details, although reports in Japan indicated that the negotiators had reached an agreement on a plan that would avoid Mr. Trump's threats to increase tariffs on Japanese cars.
Later, at the beginning of a personal meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan, Mr. Trump again referred to a trade pact and suggested that he and Mr. Abe could make enough progress "we will probably know by the end of this meeting", he said.
Earlier in the day, Mr. Trump wrote his own relationship with Mr. Abe responsible for the rising men
"As you know," he said, "Prime Minister Abe and I are very good friends, really good friends." , "
Mr Trump has ruffled feathers again in Brussels and beyond by suggesting that Russia be re-invited to the so-called Group of Eight.
Russia was suspended in 2014 after conquering Crimea from Ukraine and supporting militias Trump said last week that he thought bringing Moscow back into the ring would be "appropriate", and drew swift rejections from European members such as France, Germany But on Sunday, Trump said the United States could invite Russia to host next year's host.
At last year's G7 meeting, the president called on Russia to be invited back and even stated that Russia was to be annexed to Ukraine was partly justified – a position flatly set aside by the United States' great allies was leaning against.
"We can not agree to this logic under any circumstances," said Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, [Saturday] . "The reasons why Russia was rejected in 2014 are still valid."
When Russia joined the group in the late 1990s, "it was believed that it was the path of liberal democracy, the rule of law and human rights would tread. Said Mr. Tusk. "Is there anyone among us who can say with full conviction and not for business reasons that Russia is on that path?"
European Union officials have stated that Russia has other international forums, such as the Group of 20. These include countries such as China and Saudi Arabia, which are not democracies.
Trump wants to talk about trade and not about climate and inequality in the face of looming recession fears.
In the midst of fears of an impending recession that could jeopardize his next re-election President Trump's focus at the G7 meeting will be on the economy, with a particular focus on his clash with China.
But this weekend, Mr. Trump's advisers accused President Emmanuel Macron of France, the host of the meeting, of also focusing much on "politically correct bromides" and "niche issues" such as global warming and inequality rather than economic growth.
They also complained about a tax that France recently imposed on technology giants Facebook and Google.
Mr. Trump, who has been involved in an escalating trade war with Beijing, has talked about disrupting trade with China and forcing American companies to cease their operations – extraordinary threats that sparked shockwaves on world markets before his trip.
High-level administrative officials identified trade barriers and foreign investment as well as "currency stability" as a concern he will raise at the summit – concerns that inevitably go back to China for Mr. Trump.
In particular, the administration officials cited China's industry subsidies, direct government involvement in corporate governance, regulations requiring companies to disclose technological secrets to enter the Chinese market, and theft of intellectual property. In particular, he criticized his trade rules in favor of developing countries, including China, although it now has the second largest economy in the world.
Following the collapse last year, the organizer hopes to avoid another Trump case.
After President Trump treated the last G7 summit in an angry and illegal manner, this time the organizers tried to take fewer risks.
At the meeting in June 2018 in Canada, Mr. Trump encountered with the other leaders who attack trade agreements, defend protectionist tariffs and argue that Russia, after the capture of the territory from Ukraine in 2014 from the group was ruled out, should return to Ukraine again. Trump left the meeting prematurely, refusing to sign a final communiqué when referring to the "rule-based international order." On board his plane, he criticized host, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, for comments at the closing press conference he said, "meek and mild" and "dishonest and weak".
President Emmanuel Macron of France, host of this year's Biarritz meeting, which had a one-on-one dinner with Mr. Trump on Saturday, decided early on that there would be no final communiqué.
"No one reads the communiqués" written in advance, Mr Macron told reporters last week. Achieving agreement on the wording limits the debate and he wants it to flow freely, he said.
In a series of morning tweets from his hotel room on Sunday, Mr. Trump blamed the "false and disgusting news" for predicting that this year's meeting would end in disaster.
In fact, he insisted, "we have very good meetings, the leaders understand each other very well."
In trade and other matters, Mr. Trump has been angered by the assumption that member countries – sophisticated democracies with some of the largest economies in the world – have broadly agreed views.
Johnson and Trump showed a good mood despite differences.
President Trump ushered the likely tense phase into a day at the summit with some hilarious setbacks on Sunday when he met Boris Johnson, the new British Prime Minister, for breakfast, although disagreements were still apparent between them.
As Mr. Trump explained, "He's right man for the job," joked Mr. Johnson, "he's on notice.
But when Mr. Trump insisted that none of his colleagues questioned his China trade war at a Saturday night opening dinner, Mr. Johnson interrupted the President to do just that, praising Mr. Trump for his dealings with the American Economics, but questioned the wisdom of accepting protectionism, tariffs, and global trade oppression.
"We are all in favor of trade peace," said Mr. Johnson. A mild reprimand for Mr. Trump's aggressive trade stance towards allies and opponents.
"We believe Britain has benefited massively from free trade over the last 200 years, and we want to see that," he said, adding, "We do not like tariffs altogether."
Mr. Trump gave a brief reply to the Prime Minister and asked how the UK was "in the last three years," a reference to its recent economic stagnation.
An elegant resort has turned into an armed camp as French officials attempt to launch violent protests.
Following a year of sometimes violent Yellow Vest protests and allegations of police brutality, the French authorities have sent more than 13,000 security forces to Biarritz to avoid taking risks at the summit.  Meetings among world leaders typically attract a variety of demonstrators, and security is generally seen as a test for French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner and President Emmanuel Macron.
Castaner said last week that he was checking the safety measures in Biarritz. "If they come in, we'll react."
On Saturday, clashes erupted between security forces scattering demonstrators with water cannons and tear gas.
Biarritz is usually a small, elegant seaside resort known for good surfing, but it now resembles an almost impenetrable armed camp.
The local airport and train stations have been closed for the duration of the summit, there is a no-fly zone above, boats are prohibited or severely restricted in parts of the island. The coast and several roads leading into the heart of the city have been closed. On the beach, where the world leaders are, cars are locked, and access to the city center is strictly controlled even for the local residents.
August is the high season for tourists, and shopkeepers and restaurant owners fear business is suffering, even though they are French Officials insist that the legions of officials and journalists who come to Biarritz compensate for the loss of tourists. As the summit approached, local merchants saw the unusual sights of empty cafes, quiet streets and quiet beaches.
