Trump frequently boasts of the United States' nuclear capabilities, warning Russian Federation in April that it should "get ready" for a US missile strike on Syria.
U.S. President Donald Trump told Group of Seven leaders that the United States wanted a quick end to trade practices that he says have led to an exodus of American companies and jobs to other countries.
"Today crystallises precisely why Putin was so eager to see Trump elected", said Ned Price, a former Central Intelligence Agency analyst and the National Security Council spokesman under then-President Barack Obama.
Trump has said he was open to having a summit with Putin, who USA intelligence officials have said directed Russian meddling in the 2016 election to help Trump win.
Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) late yesterday opened a two-day regional security summit attended by Russia, Iran and other allies confronting rising tensions with the United States over trade and Washington's withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal.

Trudeau told Trump that it was "unacceptable" to cite national security when targeting a military ally like Canada . Trump left the summit early headed for his meeting with the leader of North Korea next Tuesday.
Trump suggested that Russian Federation be allowed back into the global group despite their continued occupation of Crimea. "The meeting will take place as soon as the U.S. is ready, though my working schedule must also be taken into consideration", Putin added. I think it would be good the United States.
Trade, investment and development cooperation issues will also feature prominently at the SCO, Murphy said, given the climate of "rising anti-globalization and strains on global multilateral economic institutions", stoked by Trump's nationalist "America First" policy.
Putin meanwhile said Russian Federation would work with China on the North Korean nuclear issue, ahead of the highly anticipated meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore. Russian Federation was removed from the summit in 2014 when after it invaded Crimea over its support for pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine. "And in the G-7, which used to be the G-8, they threw Russia out; they should let Russia come back in, because we should have Russia at the negotiating table". "We have opened both our country and our hearts to the world".
Moscow has denied any interference, and U.S. President Donald Trump has denied any collusion.
Xi said he will work along with Putin to usher in even brighter future to the relations between the two countries.
"We agree that a return by Russian Federation to the G7 format can not happen as long as there isn't any substantial progress in regard to the problems with Ukraine".
Putin thanked Xi for the gift saying, he values the Russia-China comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination.
