Trump decides to leave G7 meeting in Quebec early after trade dispute

Donald Trump withdraws endorsement of G7 joint statement, slams Trudeau

Donald Trump withdraws endorsement of G7 joint statement, slams Trudeau

"He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea, nor should he", Kudlow said.

On May 31, Trump announced he would remove an exemption on 25 percent tariffs for steel and 10 percent for aluminum from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union due to the national security threat posed by the imports of these metals.

Trump also targeted Trudeau on Twitter this weekend after the talks, saying Trudeau's "false statements" led him to decide not to sign the G7 communique.

President Donald Trump heaped unprecedented insults on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday, bringing U.S.

The outburst against Trudeau, and by association the other G7 members, is only the latest incident in which Trump has clashed with America's closest allies, even as he has had warm words for autocrats like Kim and Russia's Vladimir Putin.

"We have to prepare and we're very anxious, and should be very anxious on this side", said Charest.

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

The EU said it will impose the "rebalancing" tariffs on about $3.3 billion (2.8 billion euros) worth of USA steel, bourbon, agricultural products including sweet corn, orange juice, cranberries and certain clothing made of cotton.

The Charlevoix G7 summit was marked by sharp disagreements over Mr Trump's decision to impose higher import taxes on aluminium and steel imports.

"These are jointly shared principles, although the pitfalls lie in the details", she said in a press conference, adding that she expected a joint G7 statement on trade would be issued at the end of the summit. Kudlow suggested on "Face the Nation" that Mr. Trump saw Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before that meeting, saying the president won't "allow the people to suddenly take pot shots at him".

Kudlow lashed out at Trudeau first during an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union".

He wrote on his Twitter profile: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the United States massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

The statement that Trump reneged on was also signed by the heads of government of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan, all of which have also been hit by the USA tariffs of 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on aluminum.

President Trump said he expects something will happen on trade, and that it will be positive.

President Trump's senior trade advisor, Peter Navarro, had even worse criticism of Trudeau.

Within minutes of the official release of the document, Trump attacked Trudeau online over what he described as the prime minister's "false statements" during the closing news conference - and the president announced the USA would no longer endorse the communique.

The joint statement between the leaders of G7 nations comes after President Trump refused to back down from his decision to impose worldwide tariffs on goods, including steel and aluminum imports.

In an "extraordinary" exchange, Mr Trump repeated a list of grievances about United States trade - mainly with the European Union and Canada, a French presidency official said.

'Trump dictated the letter and I would tell him what he couldn't put in there, ' he said. "You know, here's the thing".

He later said he and Trump came up with the letter together.

He said Trump "did the courtesy to Justin Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit".

Canada's foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, said her country "does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks".
