MACRON’S MUTINY: French President TURNS on TRUMP Ahead of G7 Summit

Donald Trump

Larry Kudlow, a White House economic adviser, said Canada had made "polarizing" statements about USA trade policy and that Mr Trump was left with no choice but to pull out of the joint statement.

President Donald Trump on Saturday said the United States will not endorse a G7 communique via a tweet that accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of making "false statements".

The move infuriated White House staff on Air Force One, because Trudeau had sent more conciliatory signals while meeting with Trump in person during the summit, according to White House Director of Trade Policy Peter Navarro.

In response, Canada, Mexico and the European Union said they were putting in place their own retaliatory measures.

Kudlow said the president was merely flexing his muscles ahead of the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore on Tuesday.

France released a statement on Sunday condemning President Donald Trump for withdrawing from a previously agreed-upon statement by all seven nations in the Group of Seven.

Heading into the leaders' summit in La Malbaie, Que., there were deep concerns the G7 alliance was fast becoming a G6 plus one because of a widening gulf between the USA and the rest of the group in key areas such as climate and trade.

Kudlow said the US participated in G7 talks and bilateral talks on Nafta in good faith and that Trump had been "charming". That was Justin Trudeau's late father, who served several terms as Canada's prime minister, starting in the late 1960s.

President Donald Trump delivered a threat to foreign leaders during a press conference Saturday at the 2018 G7 summit in Quebec, Canada: If they don't dramatically reduce tariffs and trade barriers, "we'll stop trading with them".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shot back at Trump's comments at a press conference Saturday by saying Canadians "did not take lightly" that the American tariffs were introduced on a basis of national security, and that they would not be "pushed around".

Navarro wasn't the only top Trump adviser to use his appearance on a Sunday talk show to take pot-shots at Trudeau for daring to respond to the president's tariffs.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Mr. Trudeau said. "Trudeau stuck our president in the back and that will not stand". "We're the closest partners in the world and you don't want to see a dispute over one particular issue poison everything".

"Right now the President is actually driving our allies away from us", he said on CBS's "Face the Nation".

"I think in the case of the auto sector, I worked with the Bush and Obama administrations to help bail out that sector during the global financial crisis", Harper said.

French President Emmanuel Macron said "international co-operation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks". "I personally negotiated with Prime Minister Trudeau", Mr. Kudlow said.
