Trump makes Obama for the possibility of the Russian annexation of the Crimea

President Trump says G8, which Russia is more meaningful than a G7, accused President Obama said that the Crimea ” way.’

President Trump on Saturday doubled his calls for Russia to say the G-7 group of Nations, that the group would make more sense if the country could be back in the fold.

“I would prefer to see Russia in the G-8, in contrast to the G-7. I would say that the G-8 is a more useful group than the G-7, absolutely,” he told reporters as he left the summit in Canada.

Later, he said that Russia would be back to the group “a win” and it would be a good step for peace in the world.

“We are not looking to play games,” he said.

Trump said on Friday that Russia should be a part of the talks — a move that was likely to find little support in the group. Russia was excluded from the group — which now includes France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the USA after the annexation of Crimea in 2014.

If Trump ” has been pressed, on the annexation of the Crimea, he put the blame on President Barack Obama for the failure to deal with the situation.

“He is the Crimea the way-it was during his administration,” he said, and added: “Crimea was,, during the Obama administration, and Obama can say what he wants, but he’s allowed to take Russia, Crimea. I might have had a much different attitude.”

Trump’s call recorded for Russia, have some support, however, in the form of a new populist Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, tweeted that it was “in the interest of all” to be for Russia, once again.

Trump also told reporters on Saturday that he has not spoken with Russian President Vladimir Putin in some time.

Russia remains a sensitive issue in the United States, where investigators are looking into how they may be trying to influence the election of 2016.
