Trump slams Trudeau's post summit remarks as 'very dishonest & weak'

The summit in Canada was marked by the U.S. president's controversial trade policy which has put him at odds with the rest of the G7 leaders. -Canada border. Trudeau told reporters that imposing retaliatory measures "is not something I relish doing" but that he wouldn't hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests".

On the North American free-trade negotiations, Mr. Trump said he proposed a bilateral deal to Mr. Trudeau, an idea the prime minister rejected.

Trump would nearly certainly need help from Congress to completely cut off trade with a US ally.

The whole interaction was not as long as the epic 25-second handshake when Trump visited Paris last Bastille Day when it appeared that Trump simply would not let go.

The remarks, following a two-day meeting in Canada with the world's largest industrialized economies, seemingly worsened diplomacy between the USA and its closest allies during heightened tensions about US tariffs on aluminum and steel.

The photo of an isolated Donald Trump seemingly being chided by global leaders at the G7 summit has swept the world, hours after the US President dashed hopes of a consensus on trade by calling the Canadian Prime Minister "very dishonest and weak". "Our tariffs are in response to his of 270 per cent on dairy!"

G7 leaders issued a joint pledge today to combat protectionism and cut trade barriers as they wrapped up a fractious summit in Canada soured by a row over the U.S. imposition of tariffs on its allies.

But Theresa May hit back, branding the tariffs "unjustified" and saying the European Union would respond - although she warned against further tit-for-tat escalation.

Trump exits G7 with trade warning: Retaliatory tariffs would be 'mistake'
He is due to fly to Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un , which he described as a "mission of peace". Russian Federation was suspended from the G-8 in March 2014 a week after Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.

Trump gave "a long, frank rant", the official said, repeating a position he carried through the 2016 US election campaign into the White House that the United States had suffered at the hands of its trading partners, with French President Emmanuel Macron pushing back on the assertion and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe chiming in. Mr. Trump declared tariffs were the most important topic at the G7 summit, blasting ally nations for what he sees as them taking advantage of the U.S. He said other nations have been treating the U.S. like the "piggy back that everybody's robbing".

"If they retaliate they're making a mistake", he said. "And we charge nothing", he said.

As he exited the world summit, Trump had delivered a stark warning to America's trading partners not to counter his decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. Speaking at a post-summit press conference, Trudeau acknowledged that there were major differences with Trump.

He is now raging on Twitter about a statement given by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau following Trump's early exit. "Very dishonest & weak", the president said. "It's a one-time shot and I think it's going to work out very well".

The US president repeated his call for Vladimir Putin to join the other leaders around the summit table.

"I think one of the results of this G7 leaders' meeting will be to talk about the situation on the Korean peninsula and let the US president know, and let the world know, that he will be travelling to Singapore to the meeting with the North Korea with the strong support of his allies", Freeland said. In fact, Russian Federation was expelled from what was then the G-8 after it invaded and annexed Crimea and for its support for pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine.

"It's going to change", he said.
