President of the United States Donald Trump believes that Russia should be returned to the G-8, from where it was kicked out after the illegal annexation of Ukrainian Crimea.
The Hill reports that Trump made remarks to the journalists while meeting in the Oval Office with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis on Tuesday afternoon.
“We talk about Russia because I’ve been to numerous G-7 (G-8) meetings,” Trump said. “I think it’s much more appropriate to have Russia in.”
He added that Obama has driven Russia out because “he was outsmarted”. Trump said he would support adding Russian President Vladimir Putin to the G-7 economic talks.
