Trump told Macron EU worse than China on trade

Soon after Trump left the G7 summit he tweeted that he had instructed the House of Representatives not to endorse the final communique of the G7 summit due to Trudeau's "false statements at his news conference", as the Canadian prime minister dismissed United States metal tariffs as "insulting" and announced retaliatory measures.

Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday that a meeting of Group of Seven leaders in Canada had been "difficult" and countries had to avoid taking unilateral action in order to protect the global trading system. 'When we disagree with our allies on something it is right that we say so and air the issue openly and frankly, ' she said at a news conference.

"Canada has already raised cases at the WTO and at NAFTA, and we will retaliate", she said. Unlike last year's G7 summit in Italy, which saw G6 leaders largely attempting to sway Trump on the Paris agreement, the 2018 gathering cemented a "G6-plus-one" approach.

But that sense of solidarity extends further than Trudeau's approach this weekend, said Watt and other Canadian political insiders from across the ideological spectrum. "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference".

Mr Trudeau did not immediately respond, but his office said on Saturday after Mr Trump withdrew support for the communique that the Prime Minister had not said anything in his closing news conference he has not said to Mr Trump before.

Takumi Shibaike, a doctoral candidate in political science at the University of Toronto, said Abe has to perform a balancing act as the leader of a country that is facing both USA tariffs and the North Korean threat. The two countries' trade conflict has been ratcheting up for weeks, but twice recently - before and after the G-7 meeting - Trudeau repeated a certain comment, saying Canada was "polite" but "will not be pushed around". Trump said in a second tweet.

Trump - who has a history of hair-trigger responses to slights - landed in Singapore on Sunday for the Tuesday summit meeting with Kim.

"They are simply not playing fair - dishonest, weak", Navarro said, echoing some of the same words Trump used in his tweets. Merkel, whose nation is a G-7 member, also said the European Union would "act" against the US trade measures, which European leaders regard as going against the rules of the World Trade Organization.

Canadians, Heyman said, "are collaborators who try to find paths to solutions". "But who would take this challenge seriously from the president who declared in his inaugural address that 'protection will lead to great prosperity?'"

"I have made it clear to [President Trump] that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said. In that news conference, Trump backtracked on the progress that was reportedly made behind the scenes and "promptly appeared to reject even the ideas on trade embodied in the communiqué he had agreed to", per The Star.
