'Fool Trade': Trump continues to rip G7 in tweetstorm

INDUSTRY Steel

Mr Trump said that the United States gets "unfairly clobbered" on trade despite "protecting Europe at great financial loss".

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 U.S. was also included, Trump announced that Washington would reverse its decision and not sign the statement. The Canadian leader pulled a "sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption", Kudlow said, that amounted to "a betrayal".

Hilton labeled them as "self-regarding, after-dinner pontificators" who "glide over" real issues happening in the world and only criticize the president.

"Hopefully the European Union will again act as collectively as it has this time", the chancellor said.

"The issue of tariffs can not be looked at in isolation, we must also think about issues such as subsidies", she said. "They love the old order because they and their rich friends benefit from it".

Navarro also said Trump attending the G7 in Canada was a "courtesy" to Trudeau and that the President had "bigger things on his plate" in Singapore.

Last week, Canada hit back at Trump administration by announcing retaliatory tariffs on up to 16.6 billion Canadian dollars (12.8 billion USA dollars) worth of US steel and aluminum as well as a diverse list of other products.

"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade anymore". Trudeau stuck our president in the back.

Trump called Trudeau "dishonest & weak" after Trudeau said at a news conference that Canada would retaliate for new USA tariffs. Kudlow said Trump won't let people "take pot shots at him" and that Trudeau "should've known better". The eight-page statement also included joint commitments to ensure that Iran will "never seek, develop or acquire a nuclear weapon" as well as demands for Russian Federation to stop undermining Western democracies. "We have seen this with the climate agreement or the Iran deal". 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".

In a news conference after the summit, Trudeau reasserted his opposition to the United States tariffs and vowed to press ahead with retaliatory moves on 1 July. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

Merkel's statement came after Trump refused to endorse the final communique of the G7 summit and imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imported from Europe, Canada and Mexico, sparking fears of a possible trade war.

While G-7 members have been sharing concerns over North Korea, disputes with the United States over trade have been escalating. Trump said Duterte had done an "unbelievable job on the drug problem".

Trump insisted relationships with allies were a "10" just before he left the summit.

Looking ahead to the next major diplomatic encounter with Trump - a meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance leaders in July - "it won't be easy", Merkel said. He reiterated his longstanding view that the USA has been taken advantage of in global trade, adding, "We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing, and that ends".

Trump's trade adviser Peter Navarro also lashed out on Sunday at Trudeau's statements, saying they represent "bad faith".
