War of words erupts between United States and G7 allies

Conrad Doyle | 11 June, 2018, 09:17

Daniel Ujczo, an Ohio-based trade lawyer with Dickinson Wright, said the two countries could use a "cooling-off period" from the heated rhetoric of the last few days. "Our tariffs are in response to his 270 percent on dairy".

Asked about Trump's tweets and the future of the G7 late Saturday during a photo op in La Malbaie, Trudeau declined to respond to several questions. President Trump is sitting alone on one side of a table.

Asked if she was concerned that Trump could retaliate against European Union counter-measures by imposing tariffs on cars, Merkel said: "First of all, we'll try and see if we can prevent this".

And EU leaders at the summit also reportedly told Trump they had no choice but to impose their own tariffs against the U.S.

Shortly after departing the G7 summit in Quebec on Saturday, President Trump tweeted that he would not endorse the group communique he had just grudgingly agreed to, after he took offense to a Justin Trudeau press conference in which the prime minister promised - rather politely - to retaliate against Trump's unreasonable tariffs against his country.

Asked what Trudeau did that amounted to betrayal, Kudlow criticized the Canadian leader for holding a press conference in which he called USA tariffs "insulting". He also attacked Trudeau's character, calling the Liberal Party leader meek, weak and dishonest.

Canadian officials, including Trudeau, have fanned out across the United States as part of a months-long charm offensive to appeal to pro-trade Republicans at every level.

The comment echoed that of Arizona Republican Senator John McCain, who on Friday said in a statement that Putin "chose to make Russian Federation unworthy of membership in the G8 by invading Ukraine and annexing Crimea".

"While I have serious concerns about President Trump's approach to trade talks with Canada, Prime Minister Trudeau has placed our trade relationship with Canada at risk by publicly feuding with President Trump on the world stage", Krishnamoorthi said in a statement.

Trump said: "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal" and suggested that Canada was profiting from US trade, citing what he said was a Canadian press release. Trudeau made an error.

"To be honest with you, Prime Minister Trudeau, I respect". According to Trudeau, he told the president that Canadians may be polite and reasonable but they will not be pushed around and that his nation doesn't "relish" putting tariffs on USA goods and services but is willing to do so.

"We need Russian Federation for disarmament talks" and for discussions about both Ukraine and Syria, Merkel said.

"POTUS is not going to let a Canadian prime minister push him around ... on the eve of this", Larry Kudlow told CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday. He described all seven leaders coming together to sign the joint declaration despite having "some strong, firm conversations on trade, and specifically on American tariffs".

German foreign minister Heiko Maas posted on Twitter: "You can destroy an incredible amount of trust very quickly in a tweet". Meanwhile, Canada is the top export market for the US, which had an $8.4 billion surplus with the country in 2017, according to the Office of the United States Trade Representative.

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.
