Trump leaves summit, slams Trudeau and backs out of joint communique

Trump revealed that the US team had worked "very well" with the representatives from Pyongyang during the bilateral preparatory talks for the summit. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!".

Trudeau said he had told Trump that the talks had been made more complicated by a USA decision to impose tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum, ostensibly for national security reasons. "Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around".

Trump continued by saying that "we are looking for peace in the world, and not to play games" and emphasized his point, stating "the G8 would be better".

Leaders of the G7 nations on Saturday papered over the cracks in their alliance at a summit in Canada but came away with little more than an agreement to disagree on trade, as Trump defiantly brandished his "America First" agenda.

Trump departed the annual G-7 gathering after showing up late for a breakfast on gender equity and he missed sessions on climate change, clean energy and ocean protection.

"No tariffs, no barriers, that's the way it should be, and no subsidies", Trump said on Saturday during a 30-minute press conference in La Malbaie.

Trump plans to leave the summit mid-morning on Saturday, four hours earlier than originally planned, to fly to Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"We stand by the commitments made in the G7 communique", a senior United Kingdom government source said.

He said US farmers had been harmed by tariffs and other barriers and warned that USA trading partners would need to provide him with more favorable terms.

This meant there were some pretty big characters in that room - German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British PM Theresa May, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron, as well as Europe chiefs Donald Tusk and Jean-Claude Juncker.

"It allowed a dialogue, where for weeks there were uncoordinated unilateral actions and non-cooperation".

French President Emmanuel Macron, who met Trump as well, tweeted: "Pursuing the conversation. I think it will be very positive", Mr Trump said on Friday, without giving details.

The prospect that he could be moving toward an even greater protectionist trade policy is likely to chill financial markets anxious about tit-for-tit escalation that could lead to a full-blown global trade war.

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". China has vowed to retaliate in equal measure.

France, Europe stand by G7 statement after Trump U-turn: French official
Trump had told Trudeau any retaliation would be a mistake and the prime minister agreed that it was "not something we want to do". Russian Federation was suspended in 2014 because of its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.


But tariffs on US imports of cars and auto parts would devastate the Canadian auto industry, which is highly integrated with the USA sector.

They also stepped up Trump's assault on Trudeau himself - unprecedented in the neighbouring countries' longstanding relationship.

He said he didn't blame the other world leaders, saying their countries struck good deals at America's expense, and said he blamed previous US presidents.

Trump first floated the idea of a Russian Federation return before he headed to Canada on Friday for the meeting, throwing a further wrench into a grouping that's grappling with his move to slap tariffs on allies' steel and aluminum exports.

"It's economic. It's the balance sheet".

"The loss of trade through tariffs undermines competition, reduces productivity and removes the incentive to innovate and ultimately makes everyone poorer", she said.

"The European Union is brutal to the United States".

Trump took the action on the grounds that weak domestic industries could affect USA national security. It may not be politically correct, he told reporters, but it's the right thing to do.
