President Cancels Camp David G7 Meeting

The summit will be hosted via video-teleconference instead.

On Thursday, President Trump said he has canceled the in-person G7 summit scheduled for June at Camp David due to the coronavirus pandemic.

G7 meetings, which include leaders from the U.S., France, Germany, Canada, Japan Italy, and the UK, tackle pressing global issues. The cancellation of the summit suggests the White House believes the current crisis could extend in some form into the summer.

The decision has been made to hold the June meeting by video-teleconference which allows each nation to devote their resources to their own urgent needs. Each nation had prepared to spend large amounts of money and devote dozens of staff to prepare for and travel to the G7.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the leaders of the various G7 countries to be able to devote heir travel and staffing resources to combating coronavirus in their own countries.
  • For wisdom for President Trump and his advisers as they continue to work through diplomatic issues involving both allies and those who aren’t during the crisis of the pandemic.
