Trump has point on Canada's supply management system

Trump has point on Canada's supply management system

US President Donald Trump will skip scheduled sessions on climate change, clean energy and oceans during the two-day G7 Summit which is slated to begin on Friday in Quebec, Canada, the White House announced.

Tensions continued to mount as Trump headed to Canada on Friday morning.

Although Trump said the trade talk was "not contentious", his comments come amid a tense few days with multiple world leaders over Trump's decision to impose steel and aluminum tariffs on the country's biggest trading partners: Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

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

Trump left the meeting early to fly to Singapore for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, describing it as a "mission of peace".

Other G-7 leaders and the gender equality advisory council created by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had already kicked off the breakfast when Trump entered the room several minutes late.

The summit came during an ongoing trade dispute with China and served as a precursor to his unprecedented meeting with Kim, in which he has sought to extend a hand to the Asian autocrat who has long bedeviled the global order.

He said he suggested cutting all of the tariffs, duties and even government subsidies among the G7 countries, and said other leaders would "go back to the drawing board and check it out".

In Trump's first public remarks on Canadian soil, he once again reiterated his desire for separate trade deals with Canada and Mexico, instead of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

President Donald Trump says the USA will either do a three-way free trade deal with Mexico or Canada or direct deals and says there will be a "sunset clause" that will allow for the deal or deals to be reopened at a later date.

"We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing and that ends", Trump said.

Though the USA appears increasingly isolated from its allies, Trump on Saturday insisted that his relationships with other leaders remains "great". You know, whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run.

Just after 6 a.m., Trump used the social media platform to accuse Canada of charging US customers astronomical tariffs on dairy products.

Earlier, German Chancellor Angela Merkel floated an idea to set up a mechanism to resolve trade battles with the United States and prevent future ones, according to a French official at the gathering.

This is weak. [Valdimir] Putin is not our friend and he is not the President's buddy. The U.S. government and other nations have imposed strict sanctions on Russian Federation related to its involvement in Crimea, and those penalties remain in effect. The United States trade representative office told the Washington Post that the USA actually has a trade surplus with Canada.

On Saturday, Trump blamed former President Barack Obama for Russia's aggression toward its neighbor.

So what will this year's joint statement say?
