    Could it be like the Ides of March, that oh so fateful day?
    🔪⌛🔪🔮🔪🎲🔍🔪🌠📯🔪💫 🕠🔌😵[📴]
    Better to stick with the Senate foolz. 😏
    G6 wouldn't dirty their 🙌 hands with swamp scum.
    Julius was doing good things, big diff. 😽

  • They should openly refuse to meet until the US has a new president OR simply disallow him to participate. Seriously. Why not?

  • MSNBC forever promoting rumours slander and lies . No wonder why no one can trust this insipid media carrier. Commentators on this channel show their very narrow understanding . Seems like they are a pure propaganda group who say nothing , but lay snares for all those who are unaware . Seriously , no -one can understand since this MSNBC has promoted mis-information for the whole of Donald Trumps presidency . Complete bias with no actual information to cover the issues . Like listening to a schoolyard idiocy . Can not help MSNBC while they remain in conspiracy land and overwhelming hate .

  • Catherine S. Todd says:

    tRUMP of course wants to bring Russia back into the G-7. He is their spokesman and puppet. He's already destroyed the wheat farmers in America, as Russia is now growing and selling wheat to our former customers and trading partners. tRUMP'S plan all along. GOP, DO YOUR JOBS AND SAVE US ALL! It's all of our country, not just yours. 25th Amendment time!

  • MrArchangel73521 says:

    After this…it will be the G6…NO COUNTRY…SHOULD RESPECT THE US… UNTIL WE…THE US…GET A LEGITIMATE LEADER !!! I…APPEAL TO THE WORLD…NEXT ELECTION…WE WILL GET A TRUE "LEADER" AGAIN…ONE THAT WILL RESPECT YOU…AND MAYBE YOU…COULD FIND WITHIN YOURSELVES…RESPECT US…ONCE AGAIN !!!

  • Here is how things are going to go. Trump brings his daughter-wife Unwanted Ivanka dressed in East German 1870's style, drooling all over Trudeau. Trump is going to embarrass humanity and Ivanka will try to insert herself in adult conversation topics with her empty headed remarks. She'll glance over at her father-husband Don the Con, bounce a little and smile awkwardly, as if to say: "see, daddy, even natural born trailer trash toddlers like you and me can handle ourselves in the normal world."
    It's going to be cringy, it's going to be infuriating, it's going to be nasty and sleazy.

  • Peter Aliferis says:

    Mr Stavridis, You condemn Trump over NATO and Crimea? when NATO does nothing on the illegal occupation of Cyprus, half of Greece still occupied by Turkey, the daily violation by Turkish forces of Greek airspace and Islands? WTF????NATO has become useless in policing anything! Start by checking Turkey, then worry about Crimea, were the people voted to join Russia! TRUMP 2020

  • Peter Aliferis says:

    G7 is useless they couldnt even control the expansion of ISIS and the illegal migrant invasion into Europe! TRUMP is bang on with every complaint he has against NATO! TRUMP 2020! Who is a better leader Merkle??? Macron??? LOL no way TRUMP is by far the better leader! Along with Orban and Salvini!

  • I pray to the good lord every day that this fat orange mess would suffer a heart attack and hopefully not survive….I'd even settle for a stroke.. Greeting from Europe.

  • Even with a new President, the world wont trust or respect the US for a very long time anymore. Here in Europe the opinions shifted big time about the US because of Trump, the gun violence, the alt right, the abortion rules, the racism.

  • Wen u elect crazy and comedian person to the office of President like JD trump that is the results of Americans #make American fall down to rensions

  • Europe understands that it is dealing with trump and not america , they just have to wait him out, ditto china.Trump wants putin because he thinks he is an ally. I'm suprised he doesnt want nth Korea there.

  • I am wasting my time responding but all they do is trying to take Trump down. Liberals please take care of your homeless in your overtaxed, overpriced over-regulated states before attacking your President starting.

  • Martin Decamerone says:

    U r wrong about. Boris J, there is no way that he gets any deal through his own parliament. So it doesn’t matter what EU leaders think of him. The UK. Government is an complete deadlock.

  • Yeah sure start war with Russia..Then as the radiation slowly eats your skin your irresponsible political collusion delusion can be self validated

  • Bruce Keane Anderson says:

    Yes, and maybe the brothers and sisters in Northern Ireland might consider staying in the EU by joining the Republic of Ireland. As I understand it, in the Brexit referendum the majority of the Northern Irish vote was for remaining in the EU.

  • Focus, not the Florida , not New York now, nor has the same importance .maybe in your egocentric mind perhaps, but the Amazon, the AMAZON RAIN FOREST. Alaska doesn’t need that kind of help now. Why Alaska, NY, FL, were no mentioned when notre dame burned?
    The good thing is that since trump doesn’t care nor I suspect knows where Brasil is, one doesn’t have to tolerate his wise advices.

  • He literally bullshited his way to the presidency, millions believed that he was a brilliant businessman because of a reality tv show, and now he oozes incompetence every time he opens his mouth, your watching the greatest comedy show ever.

  • The Orange in the Oval is the world's laughing stock..hold your head in shame America you have no standing on the global stage other than the fool

  • Trump is crazy his a chosen one by the devil….his destroying the good reputation of US what ever left. His so delusional and a bullies… his a brain air….His asset by Russia together with Moscow Mitch…

  • It  boggles the  mind  that  this Clown  occupying the White House is  still alive(a very great  disappointment) and  is  still  occupying  the position. He is  one of  the  worst disasters  that  will be  going into American history  along with the  Civil War and  911, bombing of  Pearle Harbour and others .  Americans  are  showing  themselves  to  be  very  stupid in allowing this  fool  to  continue  destroying the country. It  has been so obviously  shown  he is a puppet  of Putin. He has destroyed relations  with former  allies, He has  driven  American debt  to  near bankruptcy  and  sooo much more. The  big  question is  why is he  still president. The now  aptly named Dumbocrats  are   silent and  showing  they  are totally  useless. Repugnant-cans  will allow  this to continue while  filling  their  collective pockets . The  sane world has long since  stopped laughing  at this  circus act  and  are now  very  concerned  what this  bunch  will  do next.  Wake up America this is a  very  dangerous man and  needs  to  be  stopped NOW Waiting until the  2020  election will be too late!

  • The most mentally stable person in the World has lost his frggin' diabolical mind.
    Here's to hoping that when they dump the sewage holding tanks over the Pacific he is sitting on the toilet with no parachute.
    Problem is….
    the ocean might become a swamp!

  • There is not a single world leader who looks forward to meet Trump. They all think Trump is a complete worthless moron. They don't respect him or anybody in his administration.
    Americans better understand that Trump is currently moving USA down the road to total isolation.

  • divine angelvoice says:

    Hahahah MSNBC telling us you deliver IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS of politics headline???????? You always lie and is so bias every time President Trump is involved. The IQ of MSNBC is amazing low, because they cannot see the excellent things President Trump is doing and has done for America. Wake up and realize so many countries want a strong leader like Trump ….. and slowly you will see many more strongmen like Trump in more European countries..

  • The Republican middle REALLY don't care about Trump's policies . They've come to watch a SHOW, man…a COMEDY SHOW in his rallies. They don't give a FIG about what he says and does.Even if it's detrimental to their own STATS at home. They even bring an 8 year old kid to his Obnoxious rallies. …

  • Mebbe he can get another TV show for himself and end up competing with the likes of Jimmy Kimmel, Trevor Noah, Bill Mahr or Colbert or Chelsea.

  • The chosen one went to the G7 meeting, may be he wants to buy Hokkaido from Japan, Berlin from Germany, Sardinia from Italy, Corsica from France, Northern Ireland from Britain and the Baffin Island from Canada.
    They all will say what an absurd idea and the chosen one will say how nasty they all are.

  • Why are the US even invited? Nothing will be done if this clown is there. Just leave the US on the bench, waiting for them to walk off that concussion they are suffering from.

  • I'd be surprised if the coward Trump says anything controversial while face to face with the rest of the G7 leaders, but wait until he's away from them, he'll vent his spleen over imagined injustices

  • Maria Charalambous says:

    so many ppl still believe Russia and Putin are meddling in US government .. can u not see that Trump is firmly doing Netenyahu israeli bidding … the only country that is the puppet master is israel not Russia… the mainstream media puppets will never mention that and if anyone does then they are labeled as anti semetic and fired…

  • The look in pumpkinheads eyes gets more lunatic day by day. The noose around his fat neck is tightening. The straightjacket is made to fit. Knows nothing, understands nothing and tells more lies than you and I can breathe. Disgusting, deplorable, desperate.

  • I am very close to just having one more wish left. To see the face of a climate change denier when it sinks in that all the fake news have been correct all along.

  • Donald Trump has always favored Russia, after all they helped to get him elected. This should be no surprise to anyone. Donald Trump is nothing but a big bully. In schools there are rules against bullies, that take a child from school if they are found bullying others, but yet our PRESIDENT is a bully and yet the government checks and balance system is failing by not getting rid of the bully….this means we need to correct the totality of our government officials who were ELECTED in to make sure this will not happen again.

  • Synchronistory says:

    Voter beware: if his instability escalates as 2020 pressures do, perhaps he bets on public gullibility by creating just enough mayhem to justify miraculously "quelling" it just in time for reelections. And whether he winds up winning or incites violence if he loses, this increasingly renegade presidency is a reflection on Democracy's naivety and a no-win situation for the nation and its global family. Fear and Rage are in the air. With a world in crisis we can't afford to live in the Wild West of yesteryear. Savvy voting tools are the new guns. Use them with care: SIMPOL.org

  • The joke is not so much trump being the moron he is, but Americans inability to remove him. America is the joke and a very sad one

  • Trump is on the world stage,
    in hopes he might engage,
    a pack of oligarchs,
    and a shiver of sharks,
    to join, his "global" rampage.

  • We Have to get rid ofTrump ASAP. All of the other leaders are Educated. We put our “Dumbest” out there to represent us. Sick, sad, Stupid.

  • Oscar Montalvo says:

    The Orange Troglodyte ready to butcher another diplomatic visit overseas in a the worse Unpresidential way possible, and the World Leaders getting ready to laugh about him. 😡😅🤬🐽

  • What a character P.resident Trump is & of course he will have his lines etc like all the rest at the G7 meeting and his script making him the star of the show. Show biz folks for politicians & business men!

  • الدارجة الجزائرية xDahmane says:

    Why US military presence is still in Irak, Syria or Afghanistan since years ago ? And you dare speaking about Russia defending its own land in Crimea.

  • David Mayer de Rothschild says:

    Donald Trump thinks he can run the world is a disaster for America he thinks he’s king of the world he’s in embarrassment

  • Richard Whitesin..you are RIGHT….FATTY hates standing next to him…..cuz he's TALLER..THINNER…YOUNGER.AND MUCH BETTER LOOKING..ohhhhh yeah
