Yes, that is absolutely true. At least that is what Trump has been suggesting even as he has been calling for postponement of the G7 Summit to September. Donald Trump wants the G7 Summit to be moved to a later date considering the uncertainty in the world economic situation. Interestingly, while his suggestion to postpone the Summit to September is understandable, Trump has also called for the inclusion of Russia, South Korea, Australia and India as possible additions to the group as he felt that the G7 consisting of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the US, UK and Japan was not representative. This also appears to be Trump’s ploy to cut down China’s influence in world matters. Trump has alleged that China was responsible for the spread of COVID-19. It has already set in motion a series of restrictions on China including the withdrawal of special status to Hong Kong.
