Trump pulls out of joint G7 statement, calls Trudeau 'weak'

  • France on G7'Fits of anger cannot dictate international cooperation

At times, it appeared the G-7 summit was really the G-6 against the United States, CBS News' Weijia Jiang reported. The President first insisted Russian Federation be included in the summit once again, the country was excluded after its annexation of Crimea in 2014.

He said he just wants what's fair for America.

"No tariffs, no barriers".

Trudeau's decision to move ahead with retaliatory tariffs capped off a tense day of discussions between the USA president and other world leaders, in which the US president-as many commentators were quick to point out-repeatedly demonstrated his ignorance of trade policy and made some of the most "nonsensical" claims of his presidency.

Here's a World Bank graph of trade-weighted average tariffs for the G7 countries - with U.S. almost identical to UK/Italy/France/Ger, higher than Japan/Can.

Trump is painting a highly inaccurate tariff picture - wrongly suggesting everyone else has high tariffs while USA has none.

The outburst suggested that any deal had collapsed and his more or less explicit threat to impose sanctions on imports of cars will outrage his ostensible allies - in particular Germany and Canada who produce many for the large United States market.

"We will not stop trying to convince our American friends and President Trump that undermining this order makes no sense at all, because it would only play into the hands of those who seek a new, post-West order, where liberal democracy and fundamental freedoms would cease to exist", Tusk declared.

Donald Trump asks United States representatives not to endorse G7 Summit communique
Trudeau said he "accepted" the long USA explanation in the statement about how Washington did not back the Paris agreement. The President lashed out at European Union states for treating the U.S. like "a piggy bank hat everybody's robbing".


"There is a special place in hell for any for leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door and that's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference, that's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did", Navarro said on "Fox News Sunday".

"It would be with regret, but it would be with absolute certainty and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1 applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applied to us", Trudeau said.

Apparently incensed by remarks about US tariffs at the closing press conference on Saturday by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Trump - who had already left the gathering in Quebec - tweeted that he had instructed USA officials not to endorse the final communiqué, which had already been agreed and published.

President Trump withdrew from a joint statement with G7 allies on trade because he needed to show toughness before his historic negotiations with Kim Jong Un, according to his chief economic adviser.

"The U.S.is officially in a trade war with Canada", Buzzfeed reporter David Mack wrote in response to Trump's tweet.

Over the course of the summit, the President pushed the narrative that the U.S.is a victim of a trade imbalance, though European leaders rejected these claims.

Ahead of his departure, Trump had criticised his predecessors for negotiating "unfair" trade deals.

He also said relationships with his G7 partners were a "10" before he left. "I blame, as I said, I blame our past leaders for allowing this to happen", he said. He said it won't take long to determine if Kim is serious about denuclearization.
