    Trump opened his stupid big mouth again and stated that Russia should be part of it. Sorry this guy absolutely knows nothing of the world. The G7 is solely a group of countries who have similar idea's about governing and the world. But yeah Trump does not know that difference; he's an total dumb ass. On top of that he has scolded all the G7 members; so I hope they kick him out and make it the G6. Trump also said "I have a "world" to run!" Since when?? What does he think he is? Even Hitler or Napoleon did not say that. He can't even run his own life, let alone running this country.

    Yes,as I said so many times; how can an country like this be so stupid to elect such an absolute brainless piece of shit. Something must be wrong with our election system, like it or not. But yeah this country is only 300 years old, so what do you expect from uneducated island inhabitants.

    Yes Guy, Trump has no idea about the world around the US. I hope Mueller took notice of what you said.

    Well, one can’t be a Trump supporter or a Republican these days (for that matter) without also being a misinformed, ignorant bigot and traitor so it’s not really surprising.

    trump does not like multi country of summits because he has to share the attention. So what of course does he do? He says and does things that will pissed off everybody, that way the attention remain on him. Hell, maybe he double the tariff just to remind the world not to hurt his feelings.

    trump can't handle when the spot light is on anybody else. It unfair and cruel punishment to point the spotlight at anybody else.

    So absolutely true. Mueller may wait till eternity to wrap things up. Every single American with a pulse needs to vote in '18 and again in '20.

    Actually, not to quibble, but Trump said “we have a world to run.” Which, imo, is actually worse than what you said Dutch. First off the G7 or whatever do not run the world. That is done by the superclass. Check out Rothkopf’s book of the same name. Secondly as others have noted Russia was kicked out for its annexation of Crimea. So, no, we don’t need to let Russia back in. And if we were smart we would push rapidly forward for getting the hell off of oil thereby depressing oil prices. But instead Mr. Tangerine Man keeps pushing fossil fuels and racism. Just like his puppet master in Moscow.

    I don't know if Trump is still pandering to his base of ignorant supporters, or he actually believes that he is some kind of messiah who can control the world through his sure will. I have written about Trump as an authoritarian bully and his avid followers before in this website and also a clinical diagnosis called, narcissistic personality disorder, but what scares the shit out of me is how his tactics are affecting Americans. His fuckin approval ratings keep going up.

    I don't know that I can continue to read articles by psychologists to understand Trump and his followers. However, I'm pretty sure that if I go some 80 years back in time I can find parallels in history. Hannah Arendt coined the phrase, “the banality of evil”. I dread that someone like her in the future will have to write about Trump's tenure in much the same light.

    Schmidt, when I joined the"club", Jared tried to convince me that the "system" has "checks and balances" so this country never could become an dictatorship. But looking at the present situation, there seems to be no one who can just kick the "idiot" out, because of not having proper well defined "sound" laws nor a system with real oversight, nor an very clear definition of what powers a president should have. So it is time that there is an "instruction manual" which is written to clearly detail how presidents should be properly vetted (before any election) as well have the proper instructions about its limitations defined. Everything Trump does "looks" new to us, as they say on the news, and the rest of the government sits there only with an open mouth and does n't know how to deal with it. Such means that the antique laws here should be abolished and rewritten in an clear "black and white" language which does not need interpretation. Furthermore all of this shows how poorly educated and backwards this country is, if they agree for an huge part with all the present nonsense of this government.
