Trump ends charm offensive in Italy with G7 meeting | Daily Mail Online

Donald Trump started his first overseas presidential journey as a rock star, walking down a red carpet when he arrived in Saudi Arabia and leaving the country with a coveted $100 billion arms deal.

One week and three countries later, the president risked losing his momentum in liberal Europe – where it was his predecessor, Barack Obama, who once received a hero’s welcome.

The setting could hardly be more dramatic: Friday’s G7 meetings kicked off in the Ancient Theatre of Taormina, an ancient Greek stone amphitheatre on the island of Sicily that dates from the 3rd century B.C. – complete with a nine-plane flyover trailing the Italian tricolor hues.
