Trump demands end to 'unfair' trade after G7 summit

Trump missed Trudeau's introductory statement at the meeting and entered the room while council co-chair Isabelle Hudon, who is Canada's ambassador to France, was speaking.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had hoped to visit Washington last week to complete what he thought would be the final stages of the NAFTA renegotiation.

Along with other G7 leaders, he also was not terribly pleased with Trump's view that Russian Federation should be readmitted to the global order's top table.

"Take down your tariffs & barriers or we will more than match you!" he wrote on Twitter. Then he pulled the USA out of the Paris accord the following week. "And they understand it's going to happen", Trump said.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said earlier that Russia's return to the club was out of the question.

Trump's tirade came before he was to leave for Singapore for his historic summit with the North Korean leader North Korea's Kim Jong Un. "His preference now, and he asked me to convey this, is to actually negotiate with Mexico and Canada separately", Kudlow said on Fox News on Tuesday.

Washington's partners in the G7 have been reeling since the Trump administration last week imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico, prompting retaliation and raising the specter of a global trade war.

The summit comes amid a fractured moment for US alliances after the tariffs the USA imposed last week on Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

Trump holds ‘patriotism’ event without Eagles
No current players for the Philadelphia Eagles have been reported to take a knee during the previous season's games. Trump's decision "only proves that our president is not a true patriot, but a fragile egomaniac".

Mr Macron, appalled by his predecessor Francois Hollande's frequent off-the-record comments to journalists, has kept the press at a distance since his election previous year and banned his aides from giving behind-the-scenes accounts of his presidency.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has said she wants the European Union to act with restraint and proportion in retaliating to the United States tariffs.

This was Macron after a phone call with Trump that White House aides described as "terrible".

Trump is scheduled to address the USA news media at 10 a.m. EDT on Saturday. "We have a serious problem with multilateral agreements, and that's why there will be contentious discussions", she said, per AFP.

Leaders of the Group of Seven rich nations meet at a summit in Canada on Friday more divided than at any time in the group's 42-year history, as US President Donald Trump's policies risk causing a global trade war. He says gender equality must "cut through" everything the G-7 does.

Trump bragged at a fundraising speech later that month that he made up facts in a meeting with Trudeau, claiming the USA runs a trade deficit with its biggest ally. Then he tried to ease tension with friendly banter and vague claims of progress in trade talks. "The six countries of the G7 without the United States, are a bigger market taken together than the American market".

Few Canadians fully understand Canada's arcane supply management system that utilizes production quotas, marketing boards and punishing tariffs on foreign products to protect milk, chicken, egg, and cheese farmers in this country.
