Trump falsely accuses Canada of burning down White House

Trudeau No sign of US common sense prevailing

US President Donald Trump is throwing a little extra shade at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Twitter, ahead of his first official visit to Canada tomorrow to meet with leaders of some of the world's most powerful countries at the G7 Summit. "There will be no world hegemony if we know how to organize ourselves".

Trump's recently announced tariffs are only the latest move signaling USA departure with traditionally close allies.

US stocks, apart from those of steel and aluminum producers, have fallen sharply in response to Trump's recent tariff announcements and other actions against trading partners.

But the French leader quickly added that Trump can't undo all the good work that has been done on pushing Iran to abandon its pursuit of nuclear weapons.

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has just wrapped up a meeting with Trump where they discussed trade and North Korea.

Macron has previously accused China of pursuing hegemony in Asia.

The meeting comes after a gathering of G-7 finance ministers concluded last week with a message of "concern and disappointment" to Trump from the other six countries. "Hegemony is the end of the rule of law".

"The president wants to go on the trip", Larry Kudlow, Trump's top economic adviser, said of the summit in Canada.

"The desire for all seven to sign a text can't be stronger than our requirements for the contents of that text", Macron said at a joint press conference with Trudeau in Ottawa on the eve of the summit.

Last June, U.S. formalized its withdrawal from the Paris climate change accord.

Macron said he's faced criticism that he's been too friendly with the USA president.

He said G7 countries shouldn't be talking about waging a trade war when there are real wars to fight, pointing to challenges in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq.

"We are all engaged in conflicts in Syria, in Iraq, in the Sahel, in different places in the world".

Trump raised the issue of U.S. vehicle imports with Abe at their meeting in Washington and said he wanted more investment in plants in the American industrial heartland of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Ohio. "You can't, among allies in this global context, start a trade war".

Trudeau is seen as the best bet to build a bridge between Trump and the rest of the G7 because his government has been able to forge deep links with the USA administration and across the various levels of American politics and business, the official said.

"I think the resilience of liberal democracy or resilience of free market economy is in question".

Trump has threatened to use national security laws to do the same for vehicle imports and has walked back on environmental agreements and an worldwide deal to prevent Iran from building a nuclear bomb.

Trump is said to bristle at the Prime Minister's phone calls, as May launches into policy detail rather than broader conversation.
