Trump on Talks with Trudeau: Relationship ‘Better Than It’s Ever Been’

Bruising for a fight, President Donald Trump barreled into the Group of Seven summit Friday, confronting longtime United States allies over a burgeoning trade dispute and insisting Russian Federation should be brought back into the fold.

At least three of Trump's fellow Republicans in the U.S. Senate, all frequent critics of the president, assailed his suggestion of readmitting Russian Federation to the group.

Trade battle lines were drawn even before he arrived in a series of dueling tweets and statements between Trump and his onetime friend Macron. As expected he did not budge.

A few days ago, the Trump dispensation slapped stiff tariffs on steel and aluminum imports on five of its six G7 partners.

The United States and European Union will establish a dialogue on trade within the next two weeks, a French official has said, signalling a modest step forward for bitterly divided allies at a Group of Seven summit in Canada.

Sure, President Trump will attend the G7 Summit this weekend but he's out of there early.

The proposal was supported by other leaders present, the official said. The European Union also attends.

Trump set the tone before leaving Washington on Friday. Those in the U.S. who make that argument are typically counting third party goods imported into the United States through Canada, which Ottawa considers an unfair accounting.

"We'll take it as a starting point", German Chancellor Angela Merkel, another top opponent of Trump's tariffs and trade rhetoric reportedly responded. We have to change it.

European leaders, who had met to coordinate how they would handle the combustible American president, pushed back hard, but also heaped praise on Trump, hoping to butter him up.

In response, the NFL has decided that players and teams will be fined if they kneel during national anthem from next season. Garrett said he feels bad for the fans and the players. "I think [Pederson] is a good guy". "But he's sick of this".

Trump's friendly fire has ramped up tensions in anticipation of the summit, promising a showdown when the President comes face to face with a group of world leaders he has repeatedly offended. The leaders had exchanged terse messages on Twitter ahead of the summit. "Ask this great lady".

In response Canada implemented retaliatory tariffs on USA goods.

Financial markets have been largely subdued in their response to the summit.

Mr Kudlow described the discontent among U.S. allies as being like a "family quarrel" but said that the White House was confident that talks would bring a solution. At the time, he mentioned he was open to renegotiating the pact, but other members expressed resistance to that idea.

Europe and hosts Canada warned US President Donald Trump on Thursday that they will not be intimidated at the G7 summit, despite fears that a trade war will weaken the Western alliance.

"Russia is focussed on other formats, apart from the G7", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a brief statement reported by the government-controlled Sputnik news agency. He wants to browbeat other countries for concessions, although he often fails to articulate which concessions he wants.

Trump's presidency has been clouded by a federal investigation into Russian meddling into the 2016 US election and possible coordination by people in Trump's campaign.

Trump argued that Moscow was too important to isolate.

These summits are usually seen as a cheerful and informal demonstration of shared goal and responsibility among the world's richest economies.
