White House takes up fight against 'back-stabbing' Trudeau

Reuters

"We have massive trade deficits with nearly every country, we will straighten that out", Trump said.

Donald Trump has left the G7 network of global cooperation in disarray after he pulled the United States out of a previously agreed summit communique, blaming the Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau whom he derided as "dishonest and weak".

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks as he departs the White House in Washington, U.S., on his way to the G7 Summit in Canada, June 8, 2018.

US President Donald Trump has refused to endorse the Group of Seven leaders' summit statement in retaliation to what he has called "false statements" from the Canadian Prime Minister, despite the communique having already been released to the public.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has pressed Washington to reconsider the US tariffs imposed on Canadian steel and aluminum, and encouraged President Donald Trump to work with Canada to address unfair trade. Navarro also said Trump attending the G7 in Canada was a "courtesy" to Trudeau and that the President had "bigger things on his plate" in Singapore. "We're not looking to play games", Trump added. "Our tariffs are in response to his of 270 per cent on dairy!"

Minutes after the publication of a joint communique that was approved by Trump and other Group of Seven leaders at a summit in the city of Quebec, the USA leader announced on Twitter that he was retracting his support.

'I highlighted directly to the president that Canadians did not take it lightly that the United States has moved forward with significant tariffs, ' said Trudeau.

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.

Trump was on board Air Force One when he issued a series of tweets on Saturday, attacking Trudeau who he called "very dishonest" and "weak" and apparently pulling out of the joint statement.

Before Trump's turnaround, British Prime Minister Theresa May, who Trump snubbed at the summit, strove to reinforce the image of the "special" US-UK relationship.

"Only to give a news conference after I left saying that "us tariffs were kind of insulting" and "he will not be pushed around".

"I agree with Donald Trump: Russia should return to G8".

European Council President Donald Tusk warned on Friday that Trump's protectionist trade measures pose a threat to the rules-based worldwide order.

Mr Trump told reporters at the G7 Summit he believed North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could make his country great but warned him: "It's a one-time shot".

Sharply criticizing Trump's remarks on tariffs, Trudeau promised that Canada would answer with its own on July 1 unless the US reversed course.

"It's going to change", said Trump.

Trump withdrew the United States from the global deal reached in Paris in December 2015 to curb global warming, and last month from world powers' July 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, asserting that it was one-sided in Tehran's favour.
