image for Trump ruined a G7 summit dinner by insisting the group readmit Russia

Locally sourced Basque food prepared by Michelin-star chefs may have been on the menu, but that didn’t satisfy Donald Trump during a G7 summit dinner in Biarritz, France on Saturday night (Aug. 24).

According to reporting by the Guardian, heated debates began when the US president demanded the group readmit Russia.

Russia was removed by the previously named G8 after it annexed Crimea in 2014.

During the seaside meal, French president Emmanuel Macron and European Council president Donald Tusk opposed Trump’s demands.

Italian prime minister Giuseppe Conte was reportedly the only G7 leader to support Trump’s position.

As organizer of the summit, France arranged working meetings and a guest list to ensure success.

Tending to Trump makes sense as last year the US leader unexpectedly left the G7 summit in Canada. »
