Trump says postponing G7 amid coronavirus concerns, calls for expanding membership


U.S. President Donald Trump said Saturday he will postpone a meeting of Group of 7 nations until fall and called for an expansion of the group’s membership because he considers it an outdated group that doesn’t properly represent what’s taking place in the world.

The G7 members are Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the U.K. and the U.S. Trump singled out Russia, Australia, South Korea and India as possible additions.

The leaders of the world’s major economies were slated to meet in the U.S. this year, but the coronavirus outbreak has hobbled those plans.

Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One as he returned from Florida that he had not yet set a new date, but he said the gathering could take place in September around the time of the annual meeting of the United Nations. He also said it might wait until after the November election.
