"We should remind ourselves why the G8 became the G7 - it was after Russian Federation illegally annexed Crimea".

Trump railed against trade deficits with other countries.

. He declared, "We have to straighten it out".

"They didn't tell you that, did they?"

"The experience I have with the president of the United States tells me that even though his actions are often criticized, especially recently, including on the global arena and in the economic sphere, he is still a reflective person and he is able to listen and react to another person's arguments", Putin said.

"It could be that NAFTA will be a different form".

Meanwhile, tensions are expected to be high as Trump faces his Western allies for the first time since hitting the Canada, EU and Mexico with steel and aluminum tariffs. "Nothing he has done since then has changed that most obvious fact", McCain said.

In an interview on Saturday with Russian state TV, Putin said he has found Trump to be a "thoughtful man" and believes "dialogue can be constructive" between the two.

Mrs May met with the leaders of Germany, Italy and France after the USA president said Russian Federation should be allowed back "at the negotiating table".

A senior British government source said that Russian Federation needs to change its approach before any conversation about it rejoining the G7 can begin.

Xi was also quoted by state news agency Xinhua as saying: "No matter how global situations change, China and Russian Federation always firmly support each other in defending their respective core interests".

"Russia is focussed on other formats, apart from the G7", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a brief statement reported by the government-controlled Sputnik news agency.

Other G-7 leaders may also choose to be less confrontational with Trump.

The French and Canadian leaders have each vowed to address the tariffs with Trump at the summit.

Canada and Europe were also taken back by Mr. Trump's decision to pull out of the Iranian nuclear deal.

China's Putin fans have always appreciated him as more than a powerful leader, and have given him a number of flattering nicknames, including "Prince Charming" and even "super online sensation", mainly for his athletics and as someone who worked his way up to become so successful.
