Trump, EU clash over trade at G7 opening

Trump and Macron's beef was not the only fictitious trade issue on display, with the U.S. president arriving in France shortly after announcing an additional five percent tariff on $550 billion worth of Chinese imports and "ordering" American companies to leave China. "This is not our initiative, this trade and tariff struggle, but we have to be ready and we are ready". Accusing Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro of lying about his efforts to tackle climate change, Macron promised to place the burning Amazon rainforest at the top of his agenda for the weekend, and threatened to veto a trade deal between the European Union and the Mercosur bloc that includes several South American countries.

"I will protect French wine with genuine determination for many reasons", Tusk said, adding, "The EU stands by France".

A spokesman for German Chancellor Angela Merkel said not concluding the trade deal was "not the appropriate answer to what is happening in Brazil now".

"But it is hard to imagine a harmonious process of ratification by the European countries as long as the Brazilian government allows for the destruction of the green lungs of planet Earth".

A few protesters threw rocks at police but the crowd in Bayonne was largely peaceful, with some activists dancing.

The U.S. president is coming in hot on the economy and trade and plans to lobby fellow leaders to readmit Russian Federation to the exclusive group that Trump will have his turn at running next year.

"It´s important to show that people are mobilised and do not accept the world they´re offering us", said Elise Dilet, 47, of the Basque anti-globalisation group, Bizi. Police had also arrested 17 people for hiding their faces.

At last year's summit in Charlevoix, Canada, Trump left early and repudiated the final statement in a tweet from Air Force One.

His outburst came after China imposed tariffs on U.S. imports worth $75 billion in response to an earlier round of American measures.

The wines themselves might be a sore point, however: Trump has threatened to put USA import taxes on French wine to retaliate for France's tax on tech companies like Google and Facebook.

In an homage to Coco Chanel and the founding of her couture house in Biarritz, Mrs. Trump strutted out of the White House in a black and white tweed jacket by Chanel, as well as white J Brand skinny jeans.

"We'll be taxing their wine like they've never seen before", he vowed.

In a televised address ahead of the summit, Macron said his goal was "to convince all our partners that trade tensions are bad for everyone". The 73-year-old U.S. leader, who is renowned for making controversial and polarising comments, recently questioned whether attending the G7 summit was worth his time. Tusk responded by saying that the European Union is prepared to "respond in kind" should the United States president make good on this threat.

The three-day summit comes amid sharp differences over a range of global issues including trade and climate change.

Since pulling out of the landmark 2015 nuclear agreement limiting Tehran´s nuclear programme, Trump has slapped crippling sanctions on the Iranian economy.

Macron wants him to "pause" sanctions, an aide said, which would enable talks to take place to try to find a new diplomatic solution.

Iranian Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohammad Javad Zarif on Friday said that Macron's "suggestions" to find a way out of the impasse were "moving in the right direction".
