Trump says G7 likely to be held at White House
U.S. President Donald Trump said that the G7 summit most likely will be held at the White House.
Speaking to reporters before heading on a trip to Michigan, Trump said the meeting will be "probably at the White House and maybe a little bit at Camp David, but primarily at the White House," Fox News reported.
Trump on Wednesday first tweeted that he was considering rescheduling the June G7 summit - which was initially canceled amid the coronavirus crisis - on or around the same time as initially planned.
“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,” Trump tweeted. “The other members are also beginning their COMEBACK. It would be a great sign to all - normalization!”
The White House announced in March that, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the June meeting of the seven major industrial nations - Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, and Japan along with the U.S. - would be held by video conference instead of at Camp David, the presidential retreat in the mountains of rural Maryland.
