'Russia should be back in the G8': Italy's prime minister agrees with Donald Trump

Italy's PM backs Trump on including Russia into G8

European Council President Donald Tusk warned on Friday that Trump's protectionist trade measures pose a threat to the rules-based global order.

On Saturday, President Donald Trump yet again responded to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau using his favorite platform: Twitter.

Trump's counterparts in the G7 had sought this week to find some semblance of consensus with Washington on trade and the other key issues that have formed the basis of the 42-year-old grouping of industrialized nations.

Trump tweeted his reversal after what he called "false statements" by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who he labeled "dishonest and weak".

The President of the European Council on Friday rejected a call by the US President and Italy's new Prime Minister to allow Russian Federation back into the G-8, a club of industrialized nations that became the Group of Seven (G7) when Moscow was suspended in 2014.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", he added.

"Prime Minister Trudeau is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the USA and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things", Trump said in a tweet on Thursday.

Kudlow accused Trudeau of "pouring collateral damage on this whole Korean trip".

Canadian officials, including Trudeau, have fanned across America as part of a months-long charm offensive to appeal to pro-trade Republicans at every level. Trudeau made an error.

But foreign leaders publicly and pointedly rejected Trump's demands, raising the possibility of further escalation - particuarly after Trump's recently imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum from the European Union, Canada and Mexico and said doing so protected USA national security.




Trade adviser Peter Navarro told "Fox News Sunday" that "there is a special place in hell for any leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy" with Trump. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One".

Trudeau said he had told Trump that the talks had been made more complicated by a US decision to impose tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum, ostensibly for national security reasons.

Earlier in the day, Trudeau said that the communique was agreed by all countries.

"It's a brutal blow to a summit of significant success, both in substance and in presentation", said John Kirton, director of the University of Toronto's G-7 Research Group. "He did a great disservice to the whole G7".

Canada's system of quotas and tariffs for dairy, poultry and eggs, known as supply management, is something of a sacred cow - all major political parties support it, and, given the value of existing quotas, farm groups erupt when changes are discussed. He did not comment on the conflict during a series of photo-ops with world leaders in Quebec City on Sunday morning.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May stood with Trudeau on the issue of trade.

European members were expressing solidarity with Trudeau the day after Trump's Twitter blast.

"The European Union is brutal to the United States, and they know it", Trump said, adding that other leaders acknowledge as much in private. Let's be serious and worthy of our people.

It's a startling attack on the leader of the US neighbor and ally.
