White House officials say organizing such a gathering would take time, .so Trump could make his decision within a week on whether to press ahead or not.
Still, Trump indicated he believed a summit held in the United States would signal to the world that things are returning to normal after a global pandemic shut down travel and froze the world economy.
Member countries - which remain under varying levels of lockdown and whose leaders have not left home since the pandemic began - were not notified that Trump had resurrected plans for a face-to-face summit until after he said Wednesday on Twitter that he was considering it.
"Now that our Country is 'Transitioning back to Greatness, '" he tweeted, the summit would be "a great sign to all - normalization!" The subject was discussed on a call between Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday morning, the official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.More news: Prince Charles calls for 'army of people' to help pick crops
Macron's office said in a statement that "given the importance of the G7 in the response to the crisis, the President is willing to go to Camp David, if the health conditions allow it".
President Donald Trump wants to bring world leaders to Washington, D.C., later this year for an in-person G-7 meeting, after announcing earlier thatt a virtual meeting would be held in the wake of the coronavirus epidemic.
U.S. President Donald Trump said he was considering conducting the upcoming G7 summit in Camp David, indicating he would want an in-person meeting rather than a teleconferencing session. "Whether as a video conference or otherwise, I will definitely fight for multilateralism", she said.
"We'd like to see it happen sometime in June but as to a particular date I don't have any announcement", she said.More news: How to opt-out of being an organ donor
He said his understanding is that details such as the dates and format of the meeting are still being studied by the U.S.as host nation.
With more than 33 million Americans out work and a decimated national economy due to the knock-on effects of coronavirus, Trump is now keen to reopen his country. Europeans and Canadians are now unable to travel to the United States as a result of a ban imposed by the Trump administration in a bid to contain the spread of the virus. Trump has not left the country since his late-February trip to India and last received foreign dignitaries at the White House in mid-March.
"If we do the G7, when that all comes together, probably it will be in D.C.at the White House", Trump told reporters using a nickname for the USA capital.More news: Nick Cordero’s Wife Amanda Kloots Says Recovery Is Going ‘A Little Downhill’
