Trump disrupts gender equality meeting at G-7 summit by arriving late

Trump Attacks Trudeau, Macron, Allies Ahead of G7 Summit: 'Won't Be Talking About the Russian Witch Hunt Hoax for a While'

Trump also defended his recent imposition of punishing steel and aluminum tariffs was based on legitimate national security concerns, and said he stood firm against the concerns of his fellow G7 leaders during their talks.

Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, a Republican who has been critical of the president, said if Trump "is actually serious about leading the expansion of a G-7 no-tariff, free-trade agreement, that's tremendous, tremendous news".

Nafta was a key topic when Trump held a bilateral meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Friday, with Trump later saying they had a "very, very good meeting on Nafta". He said gender equality must "cut through" everything the G-7 does.

To Trump's suggestion that Russian Federation be welcomed back to the group, allies had mixed responses.

Trump said that would be a bad idea.

The photo will come to define the insular and hostile Trump presidency, many commentators were quick to predict.

Kudlow sought to tie Trump's reaction to the upcoming summit with Kim Jong Un, saying the North Korean leader "must not see American weakness".

Other members of the Group of Seven are Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Germany and Britain.

Trump addressed the subject of worldwide trade during an impromptu news conference at the summit on Saturday, saying that he does not want to see other countries take advantage of the United States over trade.

When Trump left Quebec, it was thought that a compromise had been reached, despite the tension and the determination of European leaders Macron and Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany to push back against the United States president's protectionist policies.




Speaking before his departure from the G7 summit in Quebec on Saturday, Trump also defended the punishing steel and aluminium tariffs he has imposed on his fellow G7 leaders - all of whom are feeling the sting of those newly imposed measures. "We work closely with President Trump, and the UK has a very good relationship with the United States", she said, noting that the two-day summit was filled with "some hard discussions and strong debate".

"It was not contentious", Trump said. The president said that the level of the relationship with the G7 leaders "is a 10". "What was strong was the language that this can not go on, but the relationships are very good".

"It's like the gig is up", he said.

European officials described things much differently.

Whilst Britain has spoken out strongly against the USA tariffs, May has also been quick to point out that any European Union retaliation must be proportionate and within existing rules. These tariffs, they told Trump, would hurt everyone.

Donald Trump disrupted a G7 breakfast discussion on women's empowerment Saturday morning by showing up late.

They had been careful not to reveal their approach before meeting with Trump, although it appeared very calculated.

Former FBI Director James Comey also weighed in, tweeting Saturday night on the US-Canadian relationship.

His anger was revealing of his operating method as President, his attitude towards America's traditional foreign policy positions and his skill in using theatrical moments on the world stage to send a strong message to his loyal voters back home.

But by insisting on re-negotiating every five years, Trump is diametrically opposed with Canada, which says the sunset clause would create perpetual uncertainty and harm long-term investment. "I guess they are going to go back to the drawing board and check it out".
