US Representatives Told by Trump to Not Endorse G7 'False Statements' Communique

US Representatives Told by Trump to Not Endorse G7 'False Statements' Communique

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. But then Trump pulled out of a joint statement while citing "false statements" by Canada's prime minister, Justin Trudeau.

In a followup tweet, Trump targeted Trudeau again, saying he "acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he 'will not be pushed around'".

"Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks ... and we refrain particularly from ad hominem attacks when it comes to a close ally", Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland told reporters on Sunday. He said he expressed to Trump "that Canadians did not take it lightly that the United States has moved forward with significant tariffs on our steel and aluminum industry".

Kudlow accused Trudeau of "pouring collateral damage on this whole Korean trip". Trudeau made an error. "Or we're going to make a deal directly with Canada, directly with Mexico", Trump said. He echoed that claim Saturday in a press conference where he told reporters that "it would be an asset" to add the country back in.

G7 members met in part to discuss how to prevent election interference, and many remain angry over Putin's actions in the Ukraine. "It's a lucky number", Donald Tusk said shortly before the start of the G7 summit here.

"This is of great concern to the G7". Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!' He did not comment on the conflict during a series of photo-ops with world leaders in Quebec City on Sunday morning. Though new Italian Prime Minister Guiseppe Conte sided with Trump.

The communique, which appeared to have papered over the cracks that have surfaced in the G7, said the leaders of the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan agreed on the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism.

Sessions said in his letter that the Justice Department was not arguing that the entire law does not pass constitutional muster. Despite the Justice Department position, the Health and Human Services Department has continued to apply the health law.

Trudeau and the other G7 leaders used their meeting to try to persuade Trump to abandon the tariffs, which affect all of America's G7 allies. We spent two days obtaining a draft and commitments.

"The EU trade surplus with the U.S.is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out".

Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain took to Twitter to offer his support.

Former FBI director James Comey, who was unceremoniously fired by Trump, tried to strike a reassuring tone on Twitter. It was built over generations and is bigger than any person or dispute. "This too shall pass", said Comey in the post.

Trump turned heads last week by slapping steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada and the E-U, provoking retaliation and widespread worry of a brewing trade war...and he didn't let up.

The G7 communique is considered a somewhat formal document representing months of work involving hundreds of officials from all seven countries.

Trump also railed against French President Emmanuel Macron, after Macron likened him to a rogue leader.
