  • Talks with Trump are like sausages, says French President Macron: Report

President Donald Trump told French President Emmanuel Macron that the European Union is worse than China on trade during a meeting at the White House in April, Axios reported on Monday. "And that's the key point", Trump said.

The European leader-famed for negotiating compromise without political histrionics-gave an uncharacteristically candid and combative assessment of relations with Trump as she spoke to German channel ARD, after last week's G-7 summit.

In a second tweet Thursday evening, Trump said Trudeau "is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the US and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things".

Last year, the U.S. president was wowed by a French military parade in Paris after being invited to join Mr Macron for his country's annual Bastille Day celebrations.

British Prime Minister Teresa May said she will hold official meetings with all the leaders of the G7 countries at the Quebec summit, except for Donald Trump. In one photo, Xi and Russia's Vladimir Putin, with smiles on their faces, lead other world leaders to stride into a dining hall.

Trade battle lines were drawn even before he arrived in a series of dueling tweets and statements between Trump and his onetime friend French President Emmanuel Macron.

Kudlow has described tensions between President Trump and some close allies as part of a "family quarrel" and expressed optimism that the current feuds on trade can be ironed out, after the president recently imposed steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada, Mexico, and the European Union. "I think the bilateral meeting that's scheduled between the two is a really good thing and I think they'll walk through a lot of these issues". Trump was Macron's guest at last July's Bastille Day celebrations in Paris, an honor reciprocated with a state visit at the White House this spring.

In the United States version, we see Mr Trump face on, apparently calm, leaning back confidently with a sceptical, nearly sarcastic air, his arms crossed in a rebuff to the other leaders, bent towards him pleadingly. Merkel thinks that it is better to set out those differences instead of giving a false impression of unity with a dishonest communique that would say everything's OK. Trump focused his conversation with Macron on German trade for about 15 minutes in the one-hour meeting.

In response to Mr Trump's decision to withhold USA support for the summit conclusions, a senior United Kingdom government source said: "We stand by the commitments made in the G7 communique".

Moscow was expelled from the rich nations club, which sees itself as a guarantor of rules-based order and the global economy, over its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region.

"I would recommend - it's up to them".

Mr Trump had already threatened to divide the G7, made up of the US, France, UK, Italy, Germany, Japan and Canada, when he suggested Russian Federation should be allowed to rejoin the group.
