Pompeo downplays feud between United States and G7 allies

Pompeo downplays feud between United States and G7 allies

Canada is on of the US's largest trade partners, with $673.9 billion worth of goods and services going between the two countries in 2017.

Trump refused to sign a joint agreement with USA allies at the end of the summit and threatened to cut off trade with them unless deals were renegotiated. He clashed with Trudeau after the Canadian prime minister said his country would enact retaliatory tariffs in response to U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. "Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", he said. Canada hosted this summit for EU, France, Italy, Germany, Japan, United Kingdom and USA.

"He really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has pressed Washington to reconsider the United States tariffs imposed on Canadian steel and aluminum, and encouraged President Donald Trump to work with Canada to address unfair trade.

Peter Navarro, Trump's top trade adviser, said, "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump".

Prime Minister Trudeau on the other hand, did not balk at the statements but instead remained professional and mature - which is to be expected from a leader of one of the most respected and democratic countries in the world. That's what week, dishonest Justin Trudeau did. Navarro later clarified that his comments were "the sentiment that was on Air Force One after that". "He did a great disservice to the whole (G-7)", White House Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow told CNN. "Kim must not see American weakness". From there I go to Singapore and talks with North Korea on Denuclearization. "He can't do that".

The president has questioned privately why he should attend the G7 at all, according to a person familiar with the conversations, but was advised that skipping the meeting would appear as though he's backing down. However instead due to President Trumps harsh remarks this uncalled for clash started.

Russian Federation was expelled from what was then called the G8 in 2014 because of its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.

But, Trump's defenders today say that he is simply standing up for America.

President of the European Council Donald Tusk said that "There is a special place in heaven for Justin Trudeau".
