Merkel-Trump photos reveal power play at tense G7

Merkel-Trump photos reveal power play at tense G7

In another tweet, Trump continued to say, "PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he 'will not be pushed around.' Very dishonest & weak".

"That's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference".

Kudlow says Trudeau's actions were a "sophomoric play" and says the prime minister stabbed his U.S. allies in the back, which he argues did a great disservice to the whole G7.

US President Donald Trump will be leaving early from the summit with the leaders of the G7 countries after an unfruitful debate on trade tariffs. "I've been called worse things by better people", said the elder Trudeau.

But Kudlow probably didn't help the message he was sending to the Canadian leader by once referring to him as "Pierre Trudeau".

In her first takeaway from the contentious meeting, Merkel expressed consternation about the USA president's backtracking on the summit's final statement, while emphasizing that she'll keep talking with Trump.

The G7 nations are Canada, France, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan and Italy. "He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip". He should take it back.

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro followed with his insult for the ages during an interview with Fox News on Sunday.

Mr Trudeau did not respond to questions about Mr Trump when the prime minister arrived at a Quebec City hotel on Sunday for meetings with other world leaders, though Mr Freeland later told reporters that "we don't think that's a useful or productive way to do business". "That's what matters", wrote Trudeau.

That was Justin Trudeau's late father, who served several terms as Canada's prime minister, starting in the late 1960s.

And no wonder, as it appeared to depict the defining confrontation of the weekend's Group of Seven summit, the divide between U.S. President Donald Trump and the rest of the G7 leaders over Mr. Trump's unilateral tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

He described Trudeau's actions during the G7 as a "sophomoric play".

In an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union," Kudlow argued that Trudeau's critique amounted to a betrayal of the G7, as well as the U.S.

"He did a great disservice to the whole [Group of Seven (G-7)]", he added. "They have tariffs on certain dairy and food products - 290 [to] 295 percent".

He called Canada's planned retaliatory tariffs "nothing short of an attack on our political system".

Support for Canada and its allies also surfaced in the U.S.as well.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Twitter Saturday sought to counter the comments about Trudeau.

European G7 members also expressed solidarity with Trudeau. French President Emmanuel Macron said members of the global organization will stand behind Trump in his efforts to promote the denuclearization of the peninsula. It was built over generations and is bigger than any person or dispute.
