Trump threatens United States allies on trade as he exits G7 summit

Donald Trump calls for end to Russian expulsion from G7 grouping

After Trump departed for Singapore for a highly anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trudeau criticized Trump for triggering a trade dispute and said Canada would retaliate with tariffs against the U.S.

Trudeau's announcement, which came after the G-7 leaders signed a joint statement on trade, obviously frustrated the USA envoy, spurring Trump to revoke the US endorsement of the statement.

While airborne, Trump ordered US officials to refuse to sign the traditional end-of-summit communique and tweeted criticism of what he said were Trudeau's "false statements at his news conference".

Trump is issuing a stern warning to foreign countries not to retaliate against United States tariffs on the imports of steel and aluminum. Trudeau said he is "not remotely interested" in having Russian Federation rejoin the group.

The president says the U.S. is "pretty close" to an agreement on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and discussing two types of sunset provisions in which any of the countries could leave the deal. The president also advocated for Russian Federation to be included in the talks, asking for the reversal of the group's decision to kick out the country's leader, Vladimir Putin, for his kleptocratic behavior.

Trump said, "I have been Russia's worst nightmare", Trump claimed, "but with that being said, Russian Federation should be in this meeting".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's take was released with a wider frame, making sure the host, absent from most other images, was visible.

In a separate interview on CBS's "Face the Nation", Kudlow said the Trump had a "very successful, calm, friendly, respectful bilateral" with Trudeau and that the US won't withdraw from Nafta.

U.S. President Donald Trump's Twitter tirade against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau following the G7 is sparking promises of support from some of Trudeau's political rivals as well as calls for calm from foreign diplomats and experts.

"For us, it was important that we have a commitment for a rule-based trade order, that we continue to fight against protectionism and that we want to reform the WTO", Merkel said. "And that ends", Trump said. -Canada border. Trudeau told reporters that imposing retaliatory measures "is not something I relish doing" but that he wouldn't hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests".

The G-7 summit communique called for working together to stimulate economic growth "that benefits everyone", and highlighted a commitment to a "rules-based worldwide trading system" and "fight protectionism".

A Trudeau spokesman, Cameron Ahmad, said Saturday night that Trudeau "said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public and in private conversations" with Trump. "Trudeau stuck our president in the back and that will not stand".

"It is impossible to predict what Trump will do next", said a senior G7 official on the summit outcome. "A lot of these countries actually smile at me while I'm talking and the smile is, 'we can't believe that we got away with it'".
