‘Betrayal’ by Canadian prime minister ‘stabbed us in the back’

Russia should return to G8 - Conte (2)

"Our tariffs are in response to his of 270 per cent on dairy!"

Shortly after Trudeau said that he was "happy to announce that we have released a joint communique by all seven countries" indicating that the USA had signed on, Trump announced the U.S. would reverse its decision and not sign on to the statement after all.

The G7 summit came amid rising tensions between the U.S. and other member nations - Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, and Japan - over Trump's recent steel and aluminum tariffs.

Tusk predicted that the summit would be the most hard in years and lamented that the "rules-based worldwide order is being challenged" by current US President Donald Trump, Efe reported.

New Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said on Friday he would try to promote "moderate" positions on trade tariffs at a Group of Seven summit where the contentious issue looks set to dominate talks among leaders.

His comments were reported by CTV.

The president's sharp comments came as he is now en route to Singapore for a highly anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, set to be held on Tuesday.

President Donald Trump fired off what appeared to be passive-aggressive tweets to world leaders on Thursday, one day before he is set to meet G7 leaders for a summit in Canada.

However, Canadian PM's office responded to the "tweeting attack" in a statement saying that Justin Trudeau did nothing to provoke the backlash from Donald Trump.

Peter Navarro tells "Fox News Sunday" that's what Trudeau did to Trump at the end of the Group of Seven nations meeting in Canada over the weekend.

'This isn't just G7. "I mean it's not a question of "I hope it changes". "That's a very profitable answer if we have to do it", he said at a press conference. "And it's going to stop".

"We will not, can not sign a trade deal that expires automatically every five years".

Still, Trudeau also gave an account of his discussions with the USA president.

Trump has failed so far to get the steel and aluminum tariffs to pressure Canada and Mexico into revamping the North American Free Trade Agreement to better favour the United States. Trudeau rejected the idea.

This year's G7 summit had been dubbed "G6-plus-1" by many, referring to U.S. isolation over issues including trade and the Iran nuclear deal. "That is not a trade deal", he said, according to a report by ABC News.

This, he suggested, could involve "a check in and a renewal". Every year, the members of the group hold a summit to discuss economic matters.

Talks to modernize NAFTA, which started last August, have effectively stalled as Canada and Mexico resist USA demands for major changes such as the sunset clause and boosting the North American content of autos made in the three nations.

But foreign leaders publicly and pointedly rejected Trump's demands, raising the possibility of further escalation - particuarly after Trump's recently imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum from the European Union, Canada and Mexico and said doing so protected U.S. national security.

Trudeau told reporters that he had spoken of retaliatory measures that Canada would take next month in response to Trump's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.
