G7 leaders agree to joint communique: Trudeau

Donald Trump withdraws endorsement of G7 joint statement, slams Trudeau Trump says US not to endorse G7 communique
Andrew Cummings | 11 June, 2018, 11:02

President Donald Trump has tweeted that he now doesn't endorse the G-7 joint statement after what he calls Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's "false statements" at a closing news conference.

Top Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Trudeau "stabbed us in the back", suggesting that the Canadian leader's criticism of Trump's trade policies undermined the president before his summit meeting with North Korea.

"PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he "will not be pushed around".

Asked about Trump's threat to target United States tariffs against cars - a vital industry for Germany which supports over 800,000 jobs - "we will have to think again about what we'll do", Merkel said.

That wrestling cry would have been an apt announcement at the G-7 summit, what with the U.S. and other heads of state at each other's throats using the thrust and parry of rude remarks and social media to pummel each other.

Mere hours earlier, Trudeau had announced that all G7 countries had signed the joint communique.

Trump clashed with Trudeau after the prime minister said Canada would enact retaliatory tariffs in response to U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

In the run-up to the G7 summit, Trump continued to rile up his fellow world leaders with accusations of unfair trade practices, provoking angry responses from both Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron, who even suggested that the G7 could fare as the G6, without the United States if need be. "I don't think that ratcheting up the rhetoric is going to improve things".

US President Donald Trump warned on Saturday at the G7 Summit here that the US will do whatever is necessary for his country to have fair trade relations with other countries.

Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris climate accord and his attendance of a G7 session on the issue was in question well into the last minute.

Canada has flatly rejected welcoming Russian Federation back to the G7 fold, pointing to its annexation of Crimea.

Looking ahead to the next major diplomatic encounter with Trump - a meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance leaders in July - "it won't be easy", Merkel said.

Trump threatened that the USA will stop trading with countries that maintain tariffs on his country's exports, particularly in the agricultural sector, and that he has launched the idea of eliminating all trade duties, because "ultimately that's what you want".

Despite the photo's lionization of Ms. Merkel, it was Mr. Trudeau who would soon feel Mr. Trump's erratic wrath.

"The continuation of sanctions is clearly linked to Russia's failure to demonstrate complete implementation of its commitments in the Minsk Agreements and respect for Ukraine's sovereignty", it said.
