Trump throws G-7 into disarray with tweets after he leaves

Trump throws G-7 into disarray with tweets after he leaves

"This is unknown territory in the truest sense".

"It's never been done, It's never been tested".

Trump knew, of course, that other G7 members don't want to eliminate all tariffs, just the new USA ones they see as potentially damaging to their economies.

Trudeau refused, and the meeting was off.

"If they retaliate, they're making a mistake", he warned, insisting that the United States has much less to lose than its partners in the event of world trade breaking down.

There was no immediate reaction from the Canadian government on Trump's tweets.

On his way to Singapore Saturday, Mr. Trump tweeted that he thinks fair and reciprocal trade will happen.

"For us, it was important to have a commitment to rules-based trade", Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel said.

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

In a pair of tweets, Trump lashed out at his G-7 host, accusing its leader of being dishonest and weak and contending that Canada had taken advantage of USA interests.

It was a "a long litany of recriminations, somewhat bitter reports that the United States was treated unfairly", said the French official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

We have a great group of lads who want be fearless and give it everything they have got". I spoke with my mum and she was OK. "That was the least of my worries".

"In short, a long, frank rant which is undoubtedly very unusual in this kind of formats", the official added. "The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the President".

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

"Let's say Canada, where we have tremendous tariffs". Trudeau confirmed he had warned Donald Trump his country would impose retaliatory tariffs on USA goods from July 1, denouncing Trump's decision to invoke national security concerns to impose tariffs on aluminum and steel as "insulting" to the Canadian war veterans who had fought alongside United States allies.

His statements on the sidelines of the contentious G7 summit come just weeks after his administration slapped metals tariffs on Canada, the European Union and Mexico, who quickly announced their own retaliatory measures.

But the summit host, Trudeau, whose nation was among those singled out by Trump, pushed back and said he would not hesitate to retaliate against his neighbor to the south.

"Something's going to happen".

One scene at the very beginning of the gathering of presidents and prime ministers of the biggest industrialized nations set the mood for facing the brash Trump. They were looking at what appeared to be a draft document marked up with highlighter.

Trump's abbreviated stay at this Quebec resort saw him continuing the same type of tough talk on trade as when he departed the White House, when he accused Trudeau of being "indignant".

Trudeau and the other G7 leaders used their meeting to try to persuade Trump to abandon the tariffs, which affect all of America's G7 allies.

In 2014, the group was reformatted back into the G7 in light of events in Ukraine and a crisis in relations between Russian Federation and the West.
