Trump calls for Russian Federation to be readmitted to G8, European Union rejects it

La Malbaie: US President Donald Trump created suspense on Saturday by arriving late for the first meeting of the second and final day of the G7 summit.

Trudeau said he had told Trump that the talks had been made more complicated by a US decision to impose tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum, ostensibly for national security reasons.

President Trump concluded his visit to the Group of Seven summit on Saturdaywith warnings to USA allies, saying if they don't eliminate barriers to trade, they could lose access to the US economy.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau later said that those talks stalled because the Trump administration demanded a five-year sunset clause on the agreement.

"It is evident that the American president and the rest of the group continue to disagree on trade, climate change and the Iran nuclear deal", Tusk told reporters ahead of the G7 summit in the Canadian town of La Malbaie, north of Quebec.

Also hanging over negotiations are the fact that time has essentially run out for reaching a deal before the Mexican presidential election July 1 and congressional mid-terms this fall; and the new steel and aluminum tariffs that Trump has now extended to Mexico, Canada and the European Union. France and other USA allies have also bristled at Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.

Conte was commenting from the G7 summit in Canada, where the leaders of Italy, France, Germany, the UK, Japan, Canada and the USA are gathered for top-level talks.

"We're the piggy bank that everybody is robbing".

Macron also said this to reporters, setting the current diplomatic tone quite nicely: "When you're saying that President Trump doesn't really care, maybe you're right, but no one lives forever".

Russian Federation was suspended from the G-8 in March 2014 a week after Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.

The other G7 leaders will meet without him for the rest of the day, discussing climate change and global development.

"Maybe the American president doesn't care about being isolated today, but we don't mind being six, if needs be", said the French President. "With one country we have $375 billion in trade deficits".

If leaders were "cordial" with Trump he may have taken it the wrong way. "Or we're going to make a deal directly with Canada, directly with Mexico", Trump said Saturday.

'I think there are various discussions about alternatives that would not be that, and that would not be entirely destabilizing for a trade deal, and I think we are open to creativity, ' he said.

The Prime Minister's Office issued a response shortly after, stating that Trudeau has been consistent with Trump.

FYI: G7 or Group of Seven is a group consisting of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

The president sent the tweet while en route to Singapore for a planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
