WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump says he's considering holding a meeting in the U.S. with leaders of the world's major economies after all.

Trump had scheduled the Group of Seven meeting for June at the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland. But in March he canceled the meeting because of the coronavirus pandemic and said the leaders would confer by video conference instead.

Trump recently has been aggressively pushing for the U.S. economy to reopen and tweeted Wednesday that the G-7 leaders flying in for a meeting would be a “great sign to all” of things returning to normal.

He has proposed an unspecified site in Washington or Camp David for the meeting around the original date of June 10-12.
