Trump withdraws endorsement of the G7 communique

Trump withdraws endorsement of the G7 communique Trump withdraws endorsement of the G7 communique

At a rare solo news conference before heading to Asia, Trump said he pressed for the G-7 countries to eliminate all tariffs, trade barriers and subsidies in their trading practices. The US president has called it a "one-time shot" at peace.

That prepared the ground for Trump's attack on the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, and the U.S. withdrawal from a communique on trade negotiated in an attempt to defuse tensions over Trump's protectionist policy.

"The United States has been taken advantage of for decades and decades", Mr Trump said at a press conference on the second day of a two-day summit in Canada.

Minutes after the publication on Saturday of the joint communique that was approved by all the leaders in the G7 bloc - US, France, Germany, Japan, Britain, Italy and Canada - Trump announced on Twitter that he was retracting his support.

When Mr 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 U.S. president's protectionist policies. A Trudeau spokesman, Cameron Ahmad, said on Saturday night that Trudeau "said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public and in private conversations" with Trump.

"He really kind of stabbed us in the back", Mr. Kudlow told CNN's State of the Union. "Maybe, but nobody is forever", he told a news conference flanked by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Trudeau made an error.

"As soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace, Trudeau stuck our president in the back", Navarro said. "He should pull back on his statements and wish President Trump well in the Korea negotiations". "Is there any space for a multilateral order under these circumstances?"

Kim Jong-un "must not see American weakness", Kudlow said, shaking his jowls in a very Nixonian fashion. But he also emphasised his belief that Trump's vision of America was at odds with American values. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe stands next to Trump, also with folded arms, as French President Emmanuel Macron leans in next to Merkel. "To find itself isolated in a concert of nations is contrary to American history".

A proposal by United States President Donald Trump, that Russian Federation should re-join the annual gathering of the seven advanced economies of the world has caused tensions within the group, with the proposal not having been well received by the remainder of the group's leaders.

"We have a very good relationship with President Trump, we work with President Trump, the United Kingdom has a very good relationship with the U.S.", she said.

To many observers the photograph, a rare glimpse of diplomatic activity not wreathed in smiles and handshakes, seemed both a summation of the effect of Trump's "America first" foreign policy and the ideal pictorial accompaniment to a tense couple of days in Canada.

Trump was doing Trudeau a favor by coming to Quebec for the G7 when he "had bigger things on his plate" with the North Korean summit. But there was little shock. "The president acted and reacted in the childish way he could be expected to".

The trade spat dominated the meeting, with Canadian and European leaders threatening retaliatory duties in response to the USA levies.

Democrats contended on Sunday that Trump's actions and comments harmed long-standing relationships with US allies.
