Trump wants Russian Federation to rejoin G-7

Trump wants Russian Federation to rejoin G-7

Trump appeared to have taken notice and pushed back: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers", Trump said in a tweet.

The tense G7 summit in Quebec ended with a dramatic thud Saturday, when minutes after Canada released the text of a joint statement signed by all leaders, U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew his nation's support in a tweet.

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

Trump has periodically expressed skepticism about the USA intelligence community's conclusion that the Kremlin meddled in the 2016 election that he won, and he has forcefully rejected assertions that Russian Federation was responsible for his victory.

Both men have had recent brushes with scandal on the topic of their relationship with women in their lives, with President Trump still weathering the Stormy Daniels allegations and a bombshell report resurfacing this week that alleges a young Justin Trudeau groped a young, female journalist years ago, according to a Buzzfeed report.

In a statement issued following Mr Trump's tweets, Mr Trudeau said he remained focus on what was accomplished at the G7 summit.

Trudeau's press conference was dominated by discussions about trade, including the contentious renegotiation of NAFTA, the trade deal between Canada, U.S. and Mexico.

The communique, which appeared to have papered over the cracks that have surfaced in the G7, said the leaders of the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan agreed on the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism. "When we can underscore this, and we see that there's a lot of pressure within the USA, perhaps he will revise his position".

He added that he would use the meeting as an opportunity to start "straightening out unfair trade deals".

The comments come in the midst of Trump's ongoing trade war with allied nations.

Trudeau's decision to move ahead with retaliatory tariffs capped off a tense day of discussions between the US president and other world leaders, in which the USA president-as many commentators were quick to point out-repeatedly demonstrated his ignorance of trade policy and made some of the most "nonsensical" claims of his presidency.

Trump repeated the call on Saturday, saying "we're looking for peace in the world".

Trump's statement was made just before he left: the United States president has been at odds with the G-7 countries over mounting import duties disagreements. "It's a handsome evening, a great weekend". "The EU trade surplus with the U.S.is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out". Canada and Mexico are also taking action in retaliation.

But tariffs on USA imports of cars and auto parts would devastate the Canadian auto industry, which is highly integrated with the US sector.

Trump angered his G7 allies last week by slapping them with hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum - a move that prompted Canada and the European Union to threaten duties of their own. French President Emmanuel Macron gazed in surprise or bemusement as President Trump took his seat almost 20 minutes late to the affair.

"It's economic. It's the balance sheet".
