The G7 meeting; Trump’s Whiplash on Spotlight
This year’s 45th G7 summit was held on August 24th to the 26th, in Biarritz, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France. The seven leaders who came to this meeting were the leaders of Canada, Germany, the United States, Italy, France, Japan and the United Kingdom.
President Trump addressed Iran and the nuclear weapons on August 19th, stating that he would like to meet President Hassan Rouhani of Iran and would even be “willing to support short-term loans to get Tehran through its current financial difficulties”. In response, a meeting was push forwarded between the two, promised by President Emmanuel Macron of France, in relation to seeking the “resolution of decades of conflict between Iran and the United States.”
However, when Macron invited Foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif of Iran to Biarritz for a short-moment surprise, Trump declined to see him. Mohammad Zarif “held talks with the French, German and British officials” before leaving. Nonetheless, the meaning of this surprise was nowhere to be found, the high hopes of a long-set dilemma between the two nations regarding the demeanor of Iran’s nuclear weapons and its “destabilizing actions in the Middle East” also perished.
Another hot potato Trump recalled was of the trade war, and his new opinions of China. Trump registered the Chairman of China, Xi JinPing a “great leader” rather than what he called him just three days ago – an “enemy”. Trump declared that he “thinks we’re going to make a deal” amid China and the United States, planning a negotiation between them to restart trade talks. Liu He, the Chinese vice premier claimed in response that they are also “willing to resolve the issue through consultations and cooperation in a calm attitude” and that they are positive about “opposing the escalation of the trade war.” This gave a turning down of the war, bringing a far more ‘positive’ wave between the two powerful countries.
However, this wave turned out to be a short mind-boggler, as always. Trump once again changed his mind back on the 25th, retorting about having “second thoughts about the escalation.” Within hours, Trump decided that he was regretting himself about not setting the tariffs at a higher rate. What could have been “toning down a conflict that has battered world financial markets” were abruptly turned into ruins.
It is preposterous how easily a leader, who so happens to also be the leader of the most powerful country in the world can change his mind in just the term of a few days, not one bit regarding how much has been invested on his every word and pause. Even though Trump’s thoughts seem far shorter than anyone who was part of the G7 summit 2019, it is also interesting how many platforms are analyzing Trump’s bizarre way of politics originates from him being active in the business market for a certain amount of time. Through this, it happens so that his politics skill and methods rotate at about the same rhythm. Nations worldwide, including Korea, should be able to read Trump’s true meaning of conversation, rather than following the whiplash he is using to try to train the nearby countries he quite fully acknowledges will be affected of his every doing.
