Donald Trump Withdraws Endorsement Of G7 Joint Statement

Reacting to Trump's tweets, Trudeau's office said: "We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the summit".

MORE rebuked Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday, saying that the US will not endorse a joint communique signed with the other Group of Seven (G-7) members at this weekend's summit and seemingly threatening to impose further tariffs on the country.

In a freewheeling news conference at the G7 summit in La Malbaie, Trump defended his contentious case for bringing Russian Federation back to an expanded G8, and he riffed again on what he said are unfair trade deficits with his country.

"Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said.

Trump, who repeated that his tariffs are meant to protect USA industry and workers from unfair worldwide competition, said he had suggested to the other G7 leaders that all trade barriers, including tariffs and subsidies, be eliminated.

"If it doesn't happen, we come out even better!", he states.

"We are very clear that Canada does not pose a national security threat to the United States", she said.

Trudeau's former foreign policy advisor, Roland Paris lashed out at the USA president.

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 Canadian leader is also embroiled in a row with Washington over negotiations to revamp the nearly 25-year-old the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Despite the tough words, Trump said his relationship with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Trudeau is at a "10".

Trump himself is expected to be the last leader to arrive at the Group of Seven to arrive in French-speaking Quebec, trailing his counterparts from Germany, Britain, France, Italy and Japan as well as the host Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

As he headed to a G7 summit in Canada, Mr Trump said: "Russia should be in the meeting".

"The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a six country agreement if need be", Macron said in a tweet on Thursday amid warnings that the summit may end without a joint statement from all G7 members.

Speaking on Saturday during a rare solo news conference, Trump said he pressed for the G-7 countries to eliminate all tariffs, trade barriers and subsidies in their trading practices. Earlier in the day, G7 countries announced they had raised more than $3.8 billion in an effort with other countries to send the world's poorest girls to school. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe - a veteran of seven G7 leaders' meetings - said the Charlevoix summit featured heated exchanges, the likes of which he has never seen.

According to CNN, the comments came during a call between Trump and Trudeau discussing U.S. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" He says "we're not looking to play games".

Economically, Europe may have more to fear if Trump does go for auto tariffs. "I think it will be very positive", Trump said on Friday, without giving details.

Still, the United States and European Union will establish a dialogue on trade within the next two weeks, signaling a modest step forward for the bitterly divided allies of the G7.
