Of the seven world leaders in Sicily for the G7 summit, two came to power as a result of shocking political events - US President Donald Trump and UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

The small town of Taormina in Sicily is the location for the G7 summit over the next two days, a meeting of leaders from the world's top seven economies.

Ordinarily those involved have a good idea of where they each stand on important issues such as the environment and global security.

But as TRT World ’s Francis Collings reports, there is a degree of uncertainty regarding the policies of US President Donald Trump.
