Trump backs out of G-7 communique, criticises Canadian PM Trudeau

Photo shared by Angela Merkel hints at tension at G7

German Chancellor Angela Merkel looks towards US President Donald Trump, who arrived late for the Gender Equality Advisory Council working breakfast on the second day of the G7 Summit on June 9, 2018 in Quebec City, Canada. Speaking on the condition of anonymity a Canadian official told national broadcaster CBC that not only had Trudeau made these remarks prior to the meeting, on US television last week, he had also informed Trump of his position before he went on air. Trump reportedly called NAFTA the "worst deal ever" and told the leaders, face-to-face, what he believes each country "owed" the United States. "We are standing by them, and whoever turns their back on them shows their incoherence and inconsistencies", an aide to Macron said. Trump focused his conversation with Macron on German trade for about 15 minutes in the one-hour meeting.

Trans-Atlantic and other trade wars would have "a long-term impact on the global economy", he said at a Berlin meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and leaders of the IMF, World Bank and other worldwide institutions. He said he was unhappy at an end-of-summit press conference by Trudeau after he left the summit, in which Trudeau said Canada would retaliate against US trade tariffs.

While making no direct criticism of Mr Trump, Mrs May told MPs: "This was a hard summit with, at times, some very candid discussions, but the conclusion I draw is that it is only through continued dialogue that we can find ways to work together to resolve the challenges we face". "Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't".

Trump left Charlevoix before the G-7 summit had concluded in order to attend the bilateral summit in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

The US leader accused the G7 nations of "robbing" the US, and stated his nation had been "taken advantage of for decades and decades" in global trade. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy! "Then Justin acts hurt when called out!"

"We discussed all outstanding issues and made substantial progress, exchanging papers and talking throughout the night", a French official was quoted as saying by the Reuters news agency. "Not fair to the PEOPLE of America! The European Union had a $151 Billion Surplus-should pay much more for Military!"
