Trump criticizes Justin Trudeau, says USA won’t endorse G7 statement

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, however, contradicted Trump's statement.

At a news conference to close the summit of world leaders in Canada, Mr Trudeau said the people of his country would see the United States president's line on trade as "an insult" after a long history of cooperation between the countries.

Ending trade with other nations under the current system, Trump said, would be "a very profitable answer if I have to do it".

"He did a great disservice to the whole G7". "I did suggest it and people were - I guess they're going to go back to the drawing board and check it out". We agreed. We compromised on the communique.

A year into his presidency, it is now clear that efforts by foreign leaders to manage and temper the unpredictable USA leader have failed, and that he is who he said he would be. "Or we'll stop trading with them".

US President Donald Trump proposed the complete elimination of all barriers to global trade at a Group of Seven summit, a move that turns the tables on allies who accuse the US of wielding protectionist policies. Angela (Merkel) and Emmanuel (Macron) and Justin (Trudeau) - I would say the relationship is a 10. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did".

Trump left the summit early headed for his meeting with the leader of North Korea on Tuesday.

US President Donald Trump has refused to endorse the Group of Seven leaders' summit statement in retaliation to what he has called "false statements" from the Canadian Prime Minister, despite the communique having already been released to the public.

"We're like the piggy bank that everybody is robbing", Trump said here at a news conference.

Trudeau also said that Canada will go ahead with retaliatory tariffs from July 1, according to CNN.

And royal fans were delighted to see Markle and Prince Harry (The Duke and Duchess of Sussex ) join her on the famous balcony. However, there is a crucial difference in that Princess Eugenie - unlike Harry and now Meghan - is not a "working royal".

But Trump appeared to take Trudeau's criticism personally, and denounced the prime minister hours after he departed the G7 summit on Saturday.

The outburst against Trudeau, and by association the other members of the G7 group, is only the latest incident in which Trump has clashed with America's closest allies.

French President Emmanuel Macron's office reacted Sunday by saying that "international cooperation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks".

When Trump left Quebec, it was thought that a compromise had been reached, despite the tension and the determination of European leaders Macron and Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany to push back against the United States president's protectionist policies.

In a statement, The Associated Press reported, a spokesman for Trudeau did not address Trump's tweeted insults.

The comments come in the midst of Trump's ongoing trade war with allied nations. "We'll see how it all works out, but we've made a lot of progress".

The letter, which comes after Trump imposed hefty aluminium and steel tariffs on the European Union and other trade allies, focuses on the trade and investment relationship between the European Union and the USA - a relationship which, the ambassadors say, "other countries can only dream of".

But Trump, who frames his trade moves as a fulfillment of his campaign promises, is vowing to hold firm, tweeting Thursday: "Take down your tariffs & barriers or we will more than match you!"

"On NAFTA we either leave it the way it is as a three-some deal with Canada, the United States and Mexico and change it very substantially - we're talking about very big changes. They know it", he insisted in his departing news conference. "So I'm very happy", Trump said, as the room erupted in laughter.
