'Fool Trade': Trump continues to rip G7 in tweetstorm

'Fool Trade': Trump continues to rip G7 in tweetstorm

Other G7 partners also seemed stunned by Mr Trump's reaction, and pledged to support the communique.

In Paris, a French presidency official said France and Europe stood by the G-7 communique and anyone departing from the commitments made at the summit would be showing their "incoherence and inconsistency". "He should pull back on his statements, and wish President Trump well in the Korean negotiations". A Canadian official said the leaders discussed accelerating the talks.

"We did, in good faith".

Trudeau called the fact that the U.S. had based the tariffs on a national security reason "kind of insulting".

Outraged, the allies have responded by targeting American products, including cheese, bourbon and pork. On Friday, he reiterated a threat to quit the existing pact altogether if he doesn't get his way, only days after Kudlow said Trump wouldn't walk away. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did".

He said the move was based on Mr Trudeau's "false statements. and the fact that Canada is charging massive tariffs to our United States farmers, workers and companies".

At what a French presidential official described as one "extraordinary" session on Friday, leaders who had vowed to confront Trump over his decision to impose tariffs on US allies last week as part of his "America First" agenda, showered Trump with data one after the other.

Asked whether she backed an European Union plan to set its own duties of 25 percent on 2.8 billion euros ($3.3 billion) of USA exports, the official said the measures had not been finalised and that it was still being worked upon. "As long as he's president, this is the approach we have to expect". "$800 Billion Trade Deficit." he tweeted.

Tariffs, a major point of contention, were taken on in the statement, though in more diplomatic terms than the earlier back-and-forth between Canada and the U.S.

Merkel, whose office over the weekend released a photo of leaders and aides which illustrates the divide between Trump and his allies, said she had "tried hard to find a compromise and we fought hard for it. this was an important announcement". "And it's going to stop".

But he promised an end to the situation, and even warned of penalties for countries that do not remove trade barriers. And they championed a trading system that required countries to follow World Trade Organization rules. He says that we are the problem with tariffs. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.

As a result, Hunter said, America has become "the world's leading IP-based economy".

Trump arrived late to the G-7, after letting it be known he had no desire to show up at all.

"He did a great disservice to the whole G7".

Mr Trump has infuriated the European Union, Canada and Mexico by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports. The talks have floundered over several issues, including Trump's insistence on a clause that that would end NAFTA every five years unless all three countries agree to sustain it.

The remarks have enraged U.S. President Donald Trump.

This allegedly unfair playing field, Mr Trump contended, meant that Canada found itself in a competitive advantage across industries as varied as dairy, lumber and energy.

Last year, the United States president was wowed by a French military parade in Paris after being invited to join Mr Macron for his country's annual Bastille Day celebrations. "That is not a free trade agreement".

On Twitter, Trump complained that Trudeau had criticized USA trade policy - specifically US tariffs on Canadian metals - after the Canadian premier had "acted so meek and mild" in their one-on-one meeting.

White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow speaks during a television interview outside the West Wing of the White House, in Washington, D.C., May 18, 2018.

Kudlow said Trudeau had engaged in a "a sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption" and should apologize.

To Trump's suggestion that Russian Federation be welcomed back to the group, allies had mixed responses. A bipartisan group of senators last week introduced legislation that would require Congress to approve any tariffs imposed in the name of national security - something the president can now do on his own.
