Trump lashes out at U.S. allies in Twitter rant

The View From Canada: G7 Summit, Tariffs And Trade Trump Refuses To Sign G7 Statement After Canada's Justin Trudeau Says, Will Not Be Pushed Around
Bennie Garza | 14 June, 2018, 15:45

Leaders of the International Monetary Fund, World Trade Organization and other agencies warned Monday that American protectionism could cause global economic damage, while the European Union backed a Group of Seven declaration that U.S. President Donald Trump abruptly refused to join.

Trump's chief economic adviser said the United States pulled out of supporting the communique because the president was enraged by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

According to US Census Bureau data, Canada was the top export destination for 32 states in 2016, by far the most of any country.

Trudeau said he had reiterated to Trump, who left the G-7 meeting before it ended, that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the U.S.

Trump said a photograph released by German Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman that went viral captured a friendlier mood than what the snapshot conveyed to many analysts.

There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has paid tribute to Canadian PM Justin Trudeau's leadership after a G7 summit which she described as "difficult". "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did".

Addressing reporters in Singapore ahead of Trump's summit Tuesday with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Pompeo said he was "unconcerned" that Trump's treatment of Canada - a close ally - boded poorly for his ability to forge peace with a longtime USA adversary.

Trump - who has a history of hair-trigger responses to slights - landed in Singapore on Sunday for the Tuesday summit meeting with Kim.

The comments from Trudeau prompted Trump to criticize the Canadian leader on Twitter and decline to endorse the G7 communique.

Trudeau told reporters that Canada would move forward on July 1 with retaliatory tariffs to answer for Trump's tariffs on aluminum and steel that were "unjustly applied to us".

Trudeau said he had been consistent with what he told Trump and at his speech.

Trump said he was retaliating against Canada with countervailing tariffs, saying of Trudeau: "He learned that's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada".

Canadian politicians of all stripes rallied round their prime minister on Monday after his cautious and polite defense of free trade rules drew an extraordinary personal rebuke from US President Donald Trump. "Least of all from subordinates of the president directed at the prime minister of their greatest friend and ally", he said.

Heading into the leaders' summit in La Malbaie, Que., there were deep concerns the G7 alliance was fast becoming a G6 plus one because of a widening gulf between the US and the rest of the group in key areas such as climate and trade.

"That's what matters", he wrote. During a Friday meeting with Trudeau, who Trump has had an often uneasy relationship, he joked that his Canadian counterpart had "agreed to cut all tariffs and trade barriers". That will not stand, Navarro said.

However, following the summit, Trump tweeted that he was going not going to support the communique, leaving numerous United States' closest allies aghast.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Twitter Saturday sought to counter the comments about Trudeau. They report a really high surplus on trade with us. So far in 2018, Canada is also the top export destination for U.S. goods, with over $98 billion worth of goods going over the border.

The British government has been eager to sign a trade deal with the US after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union next year. "You know, it's like the gig is up".

President Donald Trump lashed out at United States allies Monday in a Twitter rant focusing on trade following a contentious G7 summit of economic powers in Canada at the weekend.
