White House aides said Trump's message would be the same that he has given during other trips aboard over the past year: The United States wants strong ties with its allies but wants to reduce chronic trade deficits with many of them. One thing that will be taking place over a number of years will be trade.

Trump's cancellation of his trip to Britain last month had raised questions in Britain over the relationship between Washington and its traditionally closest ally in Europe.

But at around 12:30 p.m., Mayor de Blasio tweeted that he would not be attending the meeting. NY is suing big pharma over its role in the opioid crisis.

There was speculation among world leaders about how the president's protectionist attitude would square with his wish to increase trade with America.
