Trump backs out of G-7 communique, criticises Canadian PM Trudeau

  • Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May told MPs that the G7 had been

The G7 is made up of Canada, France, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan and Italy.

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.

Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak" on Twitter on Saturday and then sent Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro to hammer the message home on Sunday morning news shows in an extraordinary assault on a close USA ally and neighbor.

Last week, Canada hit back at Trump administration by announcing retaliatory tariffs on up to 16.6 billion Canadian dollars (12.8 billion USA dollars) worth of US steel and aluminum as well as a diverse list of other products.

Asked if she was concerned that Trump could retaliate against European Union counter-measures by imposing tariffs on cars, Merkel said: "First of all, we'll try and see if we can prevent this".

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", he said.

Nearly 18 months into Trump's presidency, Merkel's comments offered renewed evidence of Germany's struggle to adapt to an upended relationship with the US.

In a statement, French President Emmanuel Macron's office said all of Europe, which includes four of the G-7 nations, are standing in solidarity behind the communique agreed upon during last week's G-7 summit in Canada.

In London, Mayor Sadiq Khan said he hopes Trump will reconsider his trade policies.

Trump - who has a history of hair-trigger responses to slights - landed in Singapore on Sunday for the Tuesday summit meeting with Kim.

She said the European Union would "act" against the USA trade measures, which European leaders regard as going against the rules of the World Trade Organization. On Saturday, Trump said again that he might pursue separate trade pacts with Canada and Mexico instead of continuing with a three-country NAFTA deal.

Trump quickly responded by personally attacking Trudeau.

"We have to keep a cool head now and draw the right conclusions", Maas said.

Despite Trump's withdrawal and decision to double down on restricting foreign goods entering the United States market, Merkel insisted that she would continue to hold talks and work together with the president.

"I have made it clear to [President Trump] that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said.

Nevertheless, Saturday's events only reinforced the chancellor's commitment to forging a stronger, more unified European Union.

Trump has repeatedly raked up the issue of India imposing high import duty on the iconic Harley-Davidson motorcycles and threatened to increase the import tariff on "thousands and thousands" of Indian motorcycles to the US.

He reiterated his longstanding view that the USA has been taken advantage of in global trade, adding, "We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing, and that ends".
