Forgive US for the idiot who currently defiles the White House and plays at being POTUS. He's a disgrace to all that America stands for, and we sincerely apologize for his beastly behavior. A majority of Americans do not agree with this absurd nincompoop who insults our closest allies and defends the ex-Commie KGB president and dictator for life, Putin. Trump will be gone one day, maybe sooner than he knows.

"After President Trump’s atrocious and irrational behavior leading up to and at the Group of Seven summit, the disintegration of the liberal world order in place since the end of World War II and the potential for a serious international crisis no longer seem hard to imagine.
After President Trump’s atrocious and irrational behavior leading up to and at the Group of Seven summit, the disintegration of the liberal world order in place since the end of World War II and the potential for a serious international crisis no longer seem hard to imagine.
The president, unmoved by history, ignorant of facts and guided by sycophants, has not been forced to grapple with the real world nor to hear views that don’t coincide with his twisted worldview, in which allies are ripping us off and aggressive strongmen are to be admired and accommodated. Trump — after departing the G-7 meeting early — reversed his earlier decision to sign on to the joint statement with other member nations. He no doubt was reacting to the public tongue-lashing from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who told the press, 'I highlighted directly to the president that Canadians did not take it lightly that the United States has moved forward with significant tariffs on our steel and aluminum industry.'
Trudeau continued by declaring that the Trump administration’s decision to invoke 'national security' to justify tariffs was “insulting” given Canada’s alliance with the United States in multiple wars. As Trudeau put it, 'Canadians, we’re polite, we’re reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around.'
Trump can never tolerate criticism, let alone such public and direct criticism, so he accused Trudeau of making “false statements” and reneged on the decision to sign the joint communique.
Trump demonstrated once again that he is erratic and untrustworthy — with his own allies! The contrast between his antagonistic relationship with democratic allies and his never saying a bad word about Russia defies explanation, unless one is to buy into the theory that he is indebted in some fashion to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose campaign to interfere in the U.S. elections helped land Trump in the White House.
Republicans had a lot to say about how President Barack Obama was weakening American alliances and alienating friends. Now that Donald Trump is actually weakening American alliances and alienating friends, the Republican silence is especially deafening.
At the G7 meeting in Canada, Trump alienated our closest and most reliable friends and encouraged our enemies. Putin couldn't have done a better job himself, destroying relations with our western alliances. But Putin didn't have to do it himself; his puppet in America's White House did it for him.

Donald Trump heads to his big North Korea summit having used the G7 meeting to isolate the United States from its allies. Trump will face off against Kim Jong-un not in a position of strength but with U.S. allies saying things like this following Trump’s juvenile behavior at the G7 and his attacks on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after he left that meeting:
“International cooperation can’t depend on anger and small words,” France’s Élysée Palace said in a statement. “Let’s be serious and worthy of our people. We spent two days obtaining a draft and commitments. We stick to it. And anyone who leaves and turns their back on them shows their inconsistency.”
Prime Minister Theresa May of Britain issued a statement through an aide saying she was “fully supportive of Justin Trudeau.”
The German foreign minister, Heiko Maas, on Sunday called on European nations to stick together following Mr. Trump’s announcement. “It’s actually not a real surprise,” Mr. Maas told reporters in Berlin. “We have seen this with the climate agreement or the Iran deal. In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters. To build that up again will take much longer.”
