President Proposes In-Person G7 Summit

He surprises world leaders with invitation to Washington.

President Trump  has issued an invitation to the G7 leaders to attend the summit in June in person in Washington, D.C.

“Now that our Country is ‘Transitioning back to Greatness,’ I am considering rescheduling the G-7, on the same or similar date in Washington, D.C., at the legendary Camp David,” he told them in a tweet. “The other members are also beginning their comeback. It would be a great sign to all—normalization.”

The G7 brings together the leaders of the United States, Germany, France, Italy, the UK, Japan and Canada. This year, the United States is the hosting country.

After his tweet, the president told reporters the gathering would “primarily” take place at the White House and “there could be a piece of it at Camp David.”

Most countries are still dealing with lockdown measures and travel bans and many international planes are still grounded.

Preparatory meetings for the summit have been held over video conference.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the leaders of the G7 countries as they determine their responses to the in-person invitation from President Trump.
  • For President Trump and members of his staff as they prepare for the G7 meeting next month.
  • For the efforts of the President and those around him toward reopening America for business and a return to economic growth.
