Tensions high as G7 Summit kicks off in Quebec

08 June, 2018, 23:26 | Author: Wade Massey

Russian Federation should be invited back to the summits of leading advanced countries, U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters as he departed the White House for the Group of Seven meeting in Canada.

In another tweet, Trump said he's "looking forward to seeing" Macron and Trudeau and accused them of "charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

The six other countries of the G7 represent a larger market than the American market.

What Macron is saying is that the G7 could become the G6 if the other members chose to exclude Trump.

Earlier Thursday, Trudeau offered Trump some qualified kudos on his North Korea peace efforts, along with French President Emmanuel Macron and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

"I agree with President (Trump)". Mr Trump's singling out of Germany's vehicle sector for criticism in his gripes about the U.S. trade deficit hardly helped matters either.

Trade ministers and politicians from multiple countries have voiced opposition in the media to the tariffs ahead of the G-7 summit, and have indicated they may band together to push the US president to reverse his decision.

He plans to leave the summit four hours earlier than originally planned to fly to Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the White House said.

Trump's comment on Twitter sets the stage for what could be an uncomfortable confrontation over economic policy on Friday.

The relationship has reportedly frayed to the point where Trump was considering sending Vice President Mike Pence to the G7 summit in his place, according to a Washington Post report. "And they understand it's going to happen", Mr Trump said before leaving Washington on Friday.

"President Trump will depart the G-7 Summit at Charlevoix at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, following the session on Women's Empowerment".

Donald Trump had also said that if the revised NAFTA deal gets signed, he shall drop the newly-imposed 25 percent tariffs on the aluminum and steel products.

Trump also railed against French President Emmanuel Macron, after Macron likened him to a rogue leader.

Trump has spent much of this year engaged in escalating trade wars with countries including US allies Canada, Mexico, and members of the EU.

"Because we want President Trump to be strong and successful in his negotiation with North Korea, we want the global community to be credible on the Iranian nuclear program".

European countries, including France, Germany and the U.K., have said they will continue to uphold the deal without the United States' inclusion, and leaders across the globe have criticized Trump's decision to pull out.

"I've been firm, I've been clear, but I don't think descending into insults is right for the way Canada engages with the world", the prime minister said.

Corker, whose state of Tennessee is home to foreign and domestic auto plants, questioned Trump's national security justification in a statement last week.

Mr Trudeau has described the United States claim that the tariff decision was taken on national security grounds as "insulting".
