Donald Trump calls for end to Russian expulsion from G7 grouping

"We make commitments and keep them".

Trump had said that the decision of the Indian government to reduce the tariff from 75 per cent to 50 per cent was not enough and asked that it should be reciprocal, as the USA imposes "zero tax" on the import of motorcycles. At one point he wrote, "Justin acts hurt when called out!".

Last month, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced his government would retaliate against Trump's tariffs by imposing import taxes on $12.8 billion worth of USA imports in what Canada says its strongest trade action since the World War II.

He then issued an ultimatum: "Why isn't the European Union and Canada informing the public that for years they have used massive Trade Tariffs and non-monetary Trade Barriers against the U.S. Totally unfair to our farmers, workers & companies".

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, said it's one thing for Mr. Trump to get angry, but quite another to ditch the agreement. Senator John McCain responded to these tweets by supposedly speaking for the American people and saying that the country stands with the rest of the G7 countries, even if President Trump does not. 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.

Peter Navarro watches as President Donald Trump speaks before signing Section 232 proclamations on steel and aluminum imports in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on March 8, 2018 in Washington, D.C.

"We spend two days working out a (joint) statement and commitments".

The White House is escalating its verbal attacks against Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of close American ally Canada.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump", Navarro insisted.

Navarro appeared slightly enraged about Trudeau's remarks.

At a rare solo news conference before heading to Asia, Trump said he pressed for the G-7 countries to eliminate all tariffs, trade barriers and subsidies in their trading practices.

President Donald Trump's top economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of "betrayal", after Trudeau defended Canada against Trump's proposed tariffs and announced that he would be moving forward with retaliatory measures against the US.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had told reporters that "Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around" over Trump's decision to invoke national security to justify U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.

"The U.S. has been taken advantage of for decades and decades, and we can't do that anymore", Trump said.

He was reacting to Trudeau's declaration that Canadians would "not be pushed around" and would hit back at punishing USA tariffs on metal imports with "equivalent tariffs".

Mr. Trump's tweets taking aim at the leader of a country that has always been a U.S. ally came after the President left the G7 summit in Canada to travel to Singapore ahead of a planned diplomatic meeting with North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un, CNN reported.
