G7 Summit: U.S. President Donald Trump attend a G7 summit with leaders of the world's major economies

G7 Summit

U.S. President Donald Trump attend a G7 summit with leaders of the world's major economies in Sicily, Italy on the latest LEG of his first foreign trip. 

A tough debate is expected on issues including trade and climate change. 
"The president and the prime minister reaffirmed their commitment to increasing trade between the UK and the US, including a post-Brexit trade deal," a Downing Street spokesman said.


The G7 consists of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the US, while the EU also has representatives present.
The event in Taormina, a town overlooking the Mediterranean, is also the first G7 summit for French President Emmanuel Macron, UK Prime Minister Theresa May and Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni

Fresh from his public dressing-down of Nato leaders for not spending enough on defence, Mr Trump is expected to be just as ready to take on his G7 counterparts, the BBC's James Landale in Sicily reports.

Other G7 leaders are concerned the US president might promote a protectionist agenda.
German weekly Der Spiegel quoted Mr Trump as saying in a meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Thursday that Germans were "very bad" on its car sales to the US, and vowed to "stop this".
Mr Juncker later described the media reports as exaggerated, and said it was "not true that the president took an aggressive approach" towards Germany.
