He also reiterated his call for Russian Federation, which was ejected from the G8 after its invasion and annexation of Crimea, to be readmitted to the exclusive club of industrialized powers, saying his predecessor President Barack Obama was responsible for Crimea being lost.

"We're looking for peace in the world, we're not looking to play games".
As Earther's Brian Kahn notes, it is not exactly surprising that the USA president would want to skip meetings that will likely be filled with information on the importance of reducing carbon emissions, safeguarding Earth's oceans from pollution, and transitioning to green energy, given that his administration has pursued the precise opposite course during Trump's first year and a half in office.
