Trump slams Trudeau, says US won’t endorse G7 communique
The communiqué had been agreed by all countries participating in the G7 in spite of tensions over U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, the BBC reported, with Trudeau commenting that all countries had signed on to the statement prior to Trump's comments.
The US leader had left the meeting early en route for Singapore and a historic nuclear summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, only to take exception to comments made by Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a news conference back on the ground.
In his press conference, Trudeau had spoken of retaliatory measures that Canada would take next month in response to Trump's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union.
Trudeau said the G7 had agreed to an "ambitious" communique, but he acknowledged the leaders left La Malbaie without significantly transforming Trump's increasingly confrontational approach to trade.
The outburst suggested that any deal had collapsed and his more or less explicit threat to impose sanctions on imports of cars will outrage his ostensible allies - in particular Germany and Canada who produce many for the large USA market.
What else did Trump have to say?
Mr Trudeau said: "Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable but we also will not be pushed around".
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. "He's sticking to his guns, and he's going to talk to them".
"Whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run", Trump said early on Friday morning.
European Council President Donald Tusk says the U.S.is challenging the global order.
The Charlevoix G-7 summit was marked by sharp disagreements over Trump's decision to impose higher import taxes on aluminum and steel imports.
The attack appeared to shatter any hope Canada could avoid U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminium or renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.
US President Donald Trump on Saturday accused other countries of "robbing" the United States on trade and threatened to stop doing business with them altogether as he pushed his "America First" agenda at a Group of Seven nations summit.
"I would say the relationship is a 10, and I don't blame them". Trump said he was discussing two types of sunset provisions in which any of the countries could leave the deal.
Macron said he and Trump held "open and direct" discussions, adding that he thought there was a way to get a "win-win" outcome on trade, though details remained unclear.
"Our values and interests are built through multilateralism, including American interests", Macron said in a tweet.
But I feel really confident", Trump said of Monday's meeting, which is the first between a North Korean leader and sitting US president, "It's never been done, It's never been tested.
