Trump gives relationship with G7 countries 10 out of 10

Trump gives relationship with G7 countries 10 out of 10

U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday threw the G7's efforts to show a united front into disarray after he became angry with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive auto industry.

The U.S. president will leave the summit Saturday morning, the White House said, just before meetings begin on climate change, energy policy and oceans.

"Prime Minister Trudeau is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the US and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things", Trump said in a tweet on Thursday.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday rejected a United States demand for a sunset clause in NAFTA but said he was prepared to compromise on the issue, which is holding up talks to update the 1990s-era pact.

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

During the Saturday press conference, Trump slammed the press for reporting on heightened tensions at the meeting.

Trump had bilateral meetings on Friday with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron.

Trump will be leaving the summit four hours earlier to travel to Singapore to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Trump negotiated in good faith on the communique agreed by the other members of the G7, only to have Trudeau criticize US policy after he left, Kudlow said.

"I$3 particularly did not take lightly the fact that it's based on national security reason that for Canadians who either themselves or whose parents or community members have stood shoulder-to-shoulder with American soldiers in far-off lands, in conflicts from the First World War onwards, that it's kind of insulting".

"The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a 6 country agreement if need be", Mr. Macron said. He also made controversial comments to reporters calling for Russian Federation, which had been kicked out of the G8 in 2014 over its Crimea invasion, to have its membership reinstated.

But even before the G7 summit began, the USA and other participants were on a collision course on a number of issues.

G7 participants were also angered by Trump's stance on climate climate - a key issue on the group's agenda.

President Donald Trump warned trading partners not to retaliate against US duties on steel and aluminum imports, before departing from the Group of Seven summit in Quebec on Saturday.

Earlier while still in Quebec, Trump said he wants to make a deal on NAFTA, and he's open to working with the current pact or striking separate agreements with Canada and Mexico - as long as they agree to renegotiate every five years.

He said the trade deficits that the USA faces "with virtually every country in the world" is the fault of past leaders.

Trudeau's remarks prompted Trump to pull out of a joint communique that was a fragile consensus on the trade dispute between Washington and its top allies, Kudlow said.
