G-7 summit with Trump was a ‘sobering’ experience, Merkel says

  • German Chancellor Angela Merkel speaks to U.S. President Donald Trump during the second day of the G7 meeting in Charlevoix city of La Malbaie Quebec Canada

Merkel's comments came amid the escalating fallout from a contentious meeting between Trump and other world leaders at the recently concluded Group of Seven (G7) Summit in Canada.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel speaks to US President Donald Trump during the second day of the G7 meeting in Charlevoix city of La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, on 9 June. According to the Census Bureau, the European Union had a $101 billion trade surplus in goods and services with the US previous year and a $30.3 billion surplus in the first quarter.

Within Merkel's CDU party too, some are openly championing Seehofer's vision, including Saxony state premier Michael Kretschmer.

"So we won't let ourselves be ripped off again and again".

"The withdrawal by tweet is, of course, sobering and a bit depressing", she said.

"He learned", Mr Trump said. But Trudeau had simply reiterated points he'd made before: that Canada planned dollar-for-dollar retaliatory tariffs in response to Trump's new tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

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.

The calamitous summit ended in disarray after Trump broadsided his allies by disavowing a joint statement the United States had agreed to.

Before his departure to the Canadian summit on Friday, Trump told reporters that it would be right to revive the G8 format (G7 nations plus Russia), suspended in 2014. Trump called him "very dishonest and weak" in a tweet after Trudeau repeated criticisms of us tariffs on imported steel and aluminum and Trump's trade policies in a news conference following the Group of Seven meeting in Quebec.

Trudeau's office cast doubt over the genuineness of Trump's offense at the prime minister's remarks, pointing out that Trudeau's messages simply reiterated his position before the summit, that he will oppose attempts to bully Canada on trade.

The French president's office said in a statement: "International co-operation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks". In late May, Washington slapped its allies with import tariffs on steel and aluminum after it failed to win concessions from its trading partners.

Canada's Justin Trudeau and other leaders had given closing press conferences and announced a US-backed joint statement.

Looking focused or exasperated depending on the viewer's interpretation, Merkel is flanked by British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron, their faces largely obscured. "We stand by it and whoever leaves it and turns their back on it is showing inconsistency and lack of character".
