In bombshell, Trump says U.S. backs out of G7 communique, criticises Trudeau

Share

President Donald Trump's top economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of "betrayal", after Trudeau defended Canada against Trump's proposed tariffs and announced that he would be moving forward with retaliatory measures against the US.

Tweeted Trump in a series of tweets starting last night: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

President Donald Trump continued to blast "bad" trade deals with key United States allies as he left the G7 summit in Canada early Saturday, telling reporters that he would "fix" unfair trade relationships or end them.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he said.

France has warned that "fits of anger" can not not dictate global cooperation after US President Donald Trump abruptly rejected a previously agreed joint statement in the wake of a fractious Group of Seven (G7) summit in Canada.

By ordering his representatives to back out of the communique, Trump appeared to be asserting his oft-stated aim of upsetting the status quo whether by pulling out of the global climate accord or the worldwide nuclear deal with Iran or threats to scrap the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Trump pulled out of endorsing a joint communique after the G7 meet finished on Saturday with the United States president accusing Trudeau, the summit's chairman, of dishonesty.

Trump said that he withdrew the USA from the G-7's joint statement because of that slight.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said: "In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters". "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" the USA president tweeted.

"He really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said.

"Well, he holds a press conference and he says the U.S.is insulting".

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) spoke on behalf of the US after President Donald Trump withdrew USA endorsement of a joint statement on trade from the G-7 summit. The Trump administration imposed aluminum and steel tariffs on the other G-7 members - the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, France, Canada and Japan - ratcheting up tensions between the USA and its allies in the run-up to the summit.

"He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea", Kudlow said.

Navarro appeared on "Fox News Sunday", and Kudlow was on CNN's "State of the Union" and CBS' "Face the Nation", and Harper spoke on Fox's "Sunday Morning Futures".

The G7, the annual summit of democracies with developed economies, took place last Friday and Saturday in the Quebec resort town of Charlevoix in Canada. He said US representatives will examine the tariffs on automobiles coming into the country and bemoaned the Canadian tariffs that affect American companies and farmers.

Shortly after Trump departed the conference for Singapore, where the president is set to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, he took to Twitter to launch an unexpected tirade against the prime minister.
