Trump postpones G7 meeting, seeks expansion of members

President Donald Trump said that he will postpone until the fall a meeting of Group of 7 nations he had planned to hold next month at the White House despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. And he said he plans to invite Russia, Australia, South Korea and India as he again advocated for the group's expansion, SIA reports.

He said he had not yet set a new date for the meeting, but thought the gathering could take place in September, around the time of the annual meeting of the United Nations in New York, or perhaps after the U.S. election in November.

The surprise announcement came after German Chancellor Angela Merkel's office earlier said on Saturday that she would not attend the meeting unless the course of the coronavirus spread had changed by then.
