Trump Won't Endorse G7 Statement, Slams Trudeau As 'Weak'

Bennie Garza | 10 June, 2018, 20:26

"Now, the Prime Minister, who I think is a fantastic man, called me the other day.", Trump said at a White House meeting with state governors in March, referring to a phone conversation with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Trump fired back at Trudeau's comments in a tweet later Saturday that called the Canadian leader "meek and mild" during the meeting of allies.

The U.S. president left before the end of the summit and will fly to Singapore for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, which he described as a "mission of peace".

Mr Trudeau's office, reeling from the abrupt Trump reversal hours after the two men had joked and smiled their way through a fractious G7 meeting, said only that Mr Trudeau had said nothing in his news conference that he hadn't said before. Tariffs are going to come way down because people can not continue to do that. "I did suggest it and people were - I guess they're going to go back to the drawing board and check it out".

Trump's Twitter tirade was in reaction to comments made by Trudeau at a press conference on Saturday in which he threatened to torpedo negotiations on a new NAFTA deal if the Americans did not remove tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum. The move has since angered leaders in Europe, Canada and Mexico and has prompted retaliatory threats on USA goods. "I expect the Trump administration will double down and try to impose more tariffs", he added.

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

"They do so much more business with us than we do with them ... the numbers are so astronomically against them? we win that war a thousand times out of a thousand".

He missed Trudeau's introductory statement and entered the room while Gender Equality Advisory Council co-chair Isabelle Hudon was speaking.

"I highlighted that it was not helping in our renegotiation of NAFTA and that it would be with regret, but it would be with absolute certainty and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1".

As well as criticising the tariffs, Mrs May also opposed Mr Trump's call for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the group of leading industrialised nations.

Trump cautioned other nations - those in the G-7 and around the world - that the size of the US economy means other nations can't win a trade war.

"The loss of trade through tariffs undermines competition, reduces productivity and removes the incentive to innovate and ultimately makes everyone poorer", she said. Mr Trump said the move would protect domestic producers that were vital to USA security.

"I have made it very clear to the President that it is not something that we relish doing, but it is absolutely something that we will do".

Yet after leaving the summit, Trump tweeted that he would instruct USA officials not to endorse the G-7 statement, after objecting to comments from summit host Trudeau.

France's President Macron also shared another view, with him arguing forcefully with his hands in Mr Trump's direction. "And if it's not fixed, then we're not going to deal with these countries". Trump said Saturday that re-admitting Russian Federation to the elite club would be "an asset", telling reporters, "we're looking for peace in the world". "Both Canada and Mexico have believed that their economic interests would be protected to some extent by the United States government".

"Simply put, the European Union invests more in the United States, buys more American services and employs more American workers than the other way around", the letter states. "I'm not looking to play that game".

Trump has long stated a preference for two-way trade accords.

Pierre Lampron, the president of Dairy Farmers of Canada, shot back at Trump's claims about his industry.

The Trump administration imposed aluminum and steel tariffs on the other G-7 members - the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, France, Canada and Japan - ratcheting up tensions between the USA and its allies in the run-up to the summit.
