Macron Fires back at Trump for ‘Incoherence’ and ‘Fits of Anger’

Macron Fires back at Trump for ‘Incoherence’ and ‘Fits of Anger’

The French president expressed support for Trump in his expected summit with the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, but also warned his abrogation last month of a 2015 multilateral deal on the Iranian nuclear programme had cast doubt on the credibility of such agreements.

After a trade advisor to Donald Trump indicated there's a "special place in hell" for the likes of Canada's Prime Minister, a top European Union (EU) official shot one back at the US administration by using the US President's favourite medium, Twitter.

Hours after leaving the G7 summit on Saturday, Trump took to Twitter to assault the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's "false statements" and instructed USA representatives to renege on the US' endorsement of the joint communique.

Trudeau's foreign minister responded by condemning "ad hominem attacks", and Germany and France criticised Trump's comments. He went on to announce that the United States would be looking to impose tariffs on vehicle imports.

"This isn't just G7. Well, the in-factual, the non-factual part of this was they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said. A hundred per cent. "We commit to modernise the WTO to make it more fair as soon as possible". We're talking to all countries.

Some media, though, interpreted the photo as another embarrassing moment for the U.S. Esquire sighed that the photo proved how Trump was still alienating our allies. On Monday, he fired off a volley of tweets venting anger on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, the European Union and again, on Trudeau.

U.S. President Donald Trump shakes hands with Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a bilateral meeting at the G7 Summit in in Charlevoix, Quebec, Canada, June 8, 2018. At one point he wrote, "Justin acts hurt when called out!"

Mr Trump said the move was based on Mr Trudeau's "false statements. and the fact that Canada is charging massive tariffs to our USA farmers, workers and companies". "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" Or, put another way: If Trump is willing to treat Trudeau, who he allegedly really likes, this way, what does that mean for us? In an in-depth interview with German broadcaster ARD, she said that the European Union would follow in the footsteps of Canada and come up with counter-measures to levy tariffs on the 28-member bloc.

President Donald Trump showed up almost 20 minutes late to a session on gender equality at the G7 summit and at times appeared to be "dozing off", The New York Times reported.

His aides took the matter further.

But shortly after Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau said he was "happy to announce that we have released a joint communique by all seven countries" indicating that the United States was also included, Trump announced that Washington would reverse its decision and not sign the statement.

"I must say that at least for me my worst expectations were actually met this weekend at the G-7 meetings", added Scarborough, a former GOP congressman-turned-independent who has been a vocal critic of Trump.

I’m ready to meet Trump says Putin
"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in", Trump said during an impromptu press conference at the summit. Putin's remarks follow a report that White House officials were working toward setting up a meeting.
