The G-7 this year looks more like a G-6+1. But if President Donald Trump gets his way, it would soon be a G-8 again, complete with the addition of Russia.

Trump said Friday that he wants the Group of Seven nations — the U.S., the U.K., France, Japan, Germany, Italy and Canada — to let Russia back into their club after it was expelled in 2014 for annexing Crimea.

“They threw Russia out,” Trump said as he departed the White House for a two-day G-7 summit in Charlevoix, Canada. “They should let Russia come back in because we should have Russia at the negotiating table.”
