Trump says US not to endorse G7 communique

Donald Trump withdraws endorsement of G7 joint statement, slams Trudeau

The newspaper wrote: "Donald Trump is the same age as the world order put in place by the United States at the end of the Second World War, but one would swear he decided that the latter will not survive him".

"I highlighted that it was not helping in our renegotiation of NAFTA and that it would be with regret but it would be with absolute certainty and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1st, applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applied to us", Trudeau told reporters. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did", Navarro said.

Paris also delivered a withering response to the U.S. president's tweeted instruction for American officials to withhold their endorsement.

President Donald Trump's chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, on Sunday charged Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau with the "betrayal" of Trump and other leaders of the Group of Seven industrial nations following their summit in Quebec. "Our tariffs are in response to his of 270 per cent on dairy!"

"In general, it was an attack on the president", he claimed.

"The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public and in private conversations with the President", said spokesman Cameron Ahmad.

And Roland Paris, a former foreign policy adviser to Trudeau, jabbed Mr. Trump on Twitter: "Big tough guy once he's back on his airplane".

Trudeau, who was walking on a path near the summit site with Argentinian President Mauricio Macri, declined to answer the questions. "It's a handsome evening, a great weekend".

"If they retaliate, they're making a mistake, " Trump declared before departing the annual Group of Seven summit, which includes Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan. French President Emmanuel Macron said the summit's trade discussions were "sometimes quite heated", and the New York Times reported Trump "delivered a running monologue" at the closed-door meetings, taking leaders to task on how he believed their countries had "mistreated" the U.S. "But he acknowledged that deep disagreements remained between Mr. Trump and the leaders of the other nations, especially on trade".

And, at an impromptu quasi-press conference before his departure, Trump had rated his personal relationships with his fellow leaders as a "10", despite his fierce disagreement with them over trade, Iran, and climate change. "Whether you like it or not ... we have a world to run".

"And on that, this was certainly a success". "Very dishonest & weak", he said of Trudeau.

On 1 June, the USA imposed a 25% tariff for steel and 10% for aluminium on imports from the European Union (EU), Canada, and Mexico. During his time in La Malbaie, the US president refused to back down.

"It's true, we didn't fix all of the planet's problems this weekend in Charlevoix". We agreed. We compromised on the communique. Macron said Thursday on Twitter, "The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a 6 country agreement if need be". They also noted the importance of "bilateral, regional and plurilateral agreements being open, transparent, inclusive and WTO-consistent".

The statement added "France and Europe maintain their support" for the G7 conclusions.

It had already been the tensest G7 meeting anyone could remember. From promoting democracy and to fighting terrorism, "we're on the same page".

"The president will continue to say what he says at various occasions", Trudeau said.

"We were coming together beautifully, OK?"

Trump also broke with other G7 leaders by calling for Russian Federation to be re-admitted to the group.

"I believe it's necessary to stop this creative babbling and shift to concrete issues related to real cooperation", Putin told reporters.

The release of the picture caused animated commentary around the world about body language and what it might say about relations between the United States and its allies in the Trump era.
