Trump Greets Trudeau Amid Tensions Over Trade

Bennie Garza | 09 June, 2018, 00:23

Russian Federation should participate in the G-7 talks, US President Donald Trump said at the end of the summit in Canada, Reuters reported.

Mr. Macron, feuding with Mr. Trump over USA steel and aluminum tariffs on the European Union, tweeted that he and the other six leaders were prepared to turn their backs on Mr. Trump at the summit.

Indeed, on Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron suggested in a tweet that Trump might not sign the final summit statement on G-7 priorities.

G-7 members are likely to take the opportunity in Quebec to address economic concerns with President Trump, as numerous countries are impacted by recent trade policy decisions the administration has made. But Trudeau became exasperated and took a shot after Trump let the exemption expire last week.

"The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a 6 country agreement if need be", Macron said in another tweet.

Trump walked along the grounds of the summit and then shook hands with Trudeau and his wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau.

"We can not look away", said Maas.

In a Twitter rant on Thursday, Trump lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, venting about Canadian tariffs on USA dairy products.

And Mr Trump's reported quip in a phone call with Mr Trudeau last month about how Canadian soldiers burned down the White House in 1812 did not go down well either, not least as it was actually the work of the British. Trudeau meets with Trump late Friday. Trump left Washington almost an hour later than scheduled, delaying the anticipated meeting.

"Russia is more often than not trying deliberately to be a strategic rival, to deliberately counter the good things we're trying to achieve in the world than for no other reason than to just counter them".

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow told reporters on Wednesday that the president was aware of disagreements over trade, but he said the country's chief executive was "sticking to his guns".

Trump is provoking his fellow G7 leaders by calling for Russia's reinstatement.

The comments followed a string of tweets from the president railing against Canada, France and other European allies for what the president has described as an imbalanced trade relationship.

Hours before, French President Emmanuel Macron offered a veiled warning to his US counterpart, who had continued to mouth off against his G7 peers.

Although Trump said the tariffs are necessary to protect United States industry, Canada and the European Union have said they are illegal. French President Emmanuel Macron warned Trump the G7 could form a group without the USA and that "no leader was forever".

"Because we want President Trump to be strong and successful in his negotiation with North Korea, we want the global community to be credible on the Iranian nuclear program". "So I don't think there's any issue there at all".

"Because these six represent values, represent an economic market, and more than anything, represent a real force at the worldwide level today". "France and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation - this is ridiculous to think that they could be a threat to the United States' security", Trudeau said.
