Trump believes 'progress made' in G7 trade talks

Trump believes 'progress made' in G7 trade talks

He added: "PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he "will not be pushed around".

It was an unprecedented attack on the leader of the U.S. neighbour and ally.

Trudeau told reporters that the statement was supported by every member, but Trump's Twitter message Saturday withdrew USA support for the communique.

"As Canadians, we are polite, we're reasonable, but also we will not be pushed around, " Trudeau said.

A picture of US President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel displaying less-than-friendly body language has turned out to be a defining image of the contentious meeting of the G7 leaders of the world's advanced economies.

Kudlow adds that Trudeau's press conference was indignant and seemed to claim it was an attempt to undermine President Trump's historic summit with Kim Jong un in three days.

The office of French President Emmanuel Macron criticized Trump's refusal to back the G-7 declaration in a statement to Agence France-Presse.

Senator John McCain responded to these tweets by supposedly speaking for the American people and saying that the country stands with the rest of the G7 countries, even if President Trump does not.

"To our allies: bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free trade, pro-globalization & supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values", McCain wrote on Twitter. "Trudeau stuck our president in the back and that will not stand".

"Things are moving forward at the G7", Macron told reporters.

Before Trump's late-day tirade issued after he left the country, the exclusive club produced a communique exposing other areas of discord.




Russian Federation was shown the door from what was then the G8 after its annexation of Crimea in 2014, widely condemned as an attack on Ukraine's sovereignty.

"That's going to be a priority", Ford said.

"President Trump played that process in good faith". He justified President Trump's decision to drop out of a joint statement made by G7 countries this weekend.

On Twitter, Mr. Trump called his remarks "very dishonest and weak", citing Canada's imposition of tariffs on dairy products.

Before leaving for Singapore, Trump had delivered a stark warning to America's trading partners not to counter his decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

He also said that Trump's public expression is a reiteration of his point of view, and that "we should not be surprised to see that". "Will there be differences of opinion, will we not like a statement that one or the other makes?"

Macron's office stressed that France and Europe maintained their support for the communique, saying there was no place for anger on the circuit of worldwide diplomacy.

"The step he took after the meeting, withdrawing his acceptance of the communique, is an affront", said Juergen Hardt, a lawmaker and spokesman for foreign policy within Merkel's CDU/CSU caucus.

Canada and the European Union have denounced the US tariffs as illegal and unjustified and Ottawa has proposed levies on a range of USA goods next month while the European Union has pledged its own retaliatory measures.

"The European Union is brutal to the United States. They know it", he insisted in his departing news conference.

Democrats contended on Sunday that Trump's actions and comments harmed long-standing relationships with USA allies.
