Trump slams Trudeau, says United States won’t endorse G7 communique

US signs G-7 declaration calling for reduction of tariffs after tense summit with allies

US signs G-7 declaration calling for reduction of tariffs after tense summit with allies

About trade matters, which Trump admitted has become the main topic of discussion at the G7 Summit at La Malbaie, the US President said his country is being treated unfairly by everyone and that he's "going to deal with the unfair trade practices" of other G7 members. "I have made it clear to the president that [imposing retaliatory tariffs] is not something we relish doing, but it's something that we absolutely will do", he said.

Kudlow, the conservative economist who directs the National Economic Council, was upset with Trudeau's comments at a press conference after the contentious Group of 7 summit in Quebec. He also attacked Trudeau's character, calling the Liberal Party leader meek, weak and dishonest. He did him a favor and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique.

Trudeau addressed the president's Twitter blasts while visiting Quebec's Saguenay region on Thursday. "That will not stand".

"Here's the thing", Kudlow said, "he really kind of stabbed us in the back".

The arguments threaten to derail a meeting that Trudeau had planned to focus on inclusive growth, gender equality and protecting oceans.

Mulroney said the government is right not to trade insults with Trump. "@realDonaldTrump announces new tariffs on fake eyebrows!" former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee tweeted, also poking fun of the prime minister as "Eyebrowgate" ensued.

The motion in parliament, introduced by the opposition New Democrats, rejected "disparaging ad hominem statements by USA officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations".

"Congressmen, politicians, people, you know realizing this is a bad thing-maybe that message will get to Donald Trump and we can hope he'll listen, although one might not be very confident that he'll listen to reason". According to Trudeau, he told the president that Canadians may be polite and reasonable but they will not be pushed around and that his nation doesn't "relish" putting tariffs on USA goods and services but is willing to do so. "I'm unconcerned about our capacity to continue to do what we need to do".

The relationship between the USA and its allies was already off-balance after Mr. Trump just a week before the summit imposed 25% tariffs on steel and 10% tariffs on aluminum from the European Union and Canada.

Leaders of the Group of Seven rich nations are set to clash with a combative US President Donald Trump when they pressure him to lift sanctions on steel and aluminium they fear could lead to a trade war. The G-7 also includes Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan. "I look forward to meeting him and have a feeling that this one-time opportunity will not be wasted!" he said of his meeting with the reclusive North Korean dictator who has never travelled beyond China.

Mr. Trump insisted relationships with allies were a "10" just before he left the summit.
