Trump: You wanna come to my great meeting?
Merkel: Thanks, but no thanks.
Trump: *FURIOUS* ... I’m gonna call Macron.


”The White House had not commented by the time of publication”

Will there be sanctions on Germany now?

Merkel rebuffs Trump invitation to G-7 summit

BERLIN — German Chancellor Angela Merkel has rebuffed Donald Trump’s invitation to attend a G-7 summit, which the president is keen to portray as a symbol of a return to normality from the upheaval of the coronavirus crisis.

"The federal chancellor thanks President Trump for his invitation to the G-7 summit at the end of June in Washington. As of today, considering the overall pandemic situation, she cannot agree to her personal participation, to a journey to Washington," German government spokesman Steffen Seibert told POLITICO on Friday.

"She will of course continue to monitor the development of the pandemic."
Merkel's refusal to accept Trump's invitation is the latest in a long line of examples of the difficult relationship between the two leaders. Trump has repeatedly criticized Germany, and Merkel specifically, over issues ranging from Berlin's trade surplus to its defense spending and commitment to NATO. Merkel has pointedly and publicly taken issue with the Trump administration's unilateral approach to a range of foreign policy issues, from climate change to the Iran nuclear deal.

In a call this week, the two leaders had heated disagreements on topics including NATO, the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline between Russia and Germany, and relations with China, according to a senior U.S. official, who declined to be named. Seibert, the German spokesman, did not respond to a question about whether the conversation was heated.

The White House had not commented by the time of publication.

Officials aware of the transatlantic discussions said Trump was furious over Merkel's reluctance to attend the summit, and on Thursday he phoned French President Emmanuel Macron in a pique.

” What's the big deal?”

That the world leaders won’t come to Trump and celebrate his greatness when he wants to open up the economy again at his great meeting.

That should be a pretty big deal for Trump.

Trump postponing the G7 to at least September

"I'm postponing it because I don't feel as a G7 it probably represents what's going on in the world. It's a very outdated group of countries," Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One on Saturday.


The G7 countries are outdated!

Yes, because it has nothing to do with that world leaders thinks it is too early to hold large meetings in person because of the pandemic situation.

If Trump was a great leader he would have (instead of inviting people) told them that: ”Look, there’s a great pandemic going on now so I’m gonna postpone our great meeting until later”.

By doing that he would have shown to everyone that he knows what’s going on in the world.

Yes, even Canada said that they are probably not gonna go to the meeting.

Trump responed by saying that the countries are ”outdated” and that he is thinking of inviting Russia and other countries hit hard by Corona. (Brazil? Spain? Sweden?)

Rumsfeld knew that Germany is old Europe meaning outdated. It's true.
