Congress skeptical of Trump's G7 strategy

US President Donald Trump accuses India of charging 100 per cent tariff on some imports

While leaders thought Trump may not agree to the climate charter, they had hoped the USA would at least consider signing off on the ocean agreement.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland spoke against the United States over its tariffs on steel and aluminum on Friday during the summit.

The President, who left the G7 Summit early to go Singapore for his meeting with Kim Jong Un, called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "very dishonest and weak".

In a tweet posted Saturday evening, Trump said his decision was based on "false statements" made by Trudeau during a press conference he gave, as well as "the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs" on USA companies. The EU also charges higher tariffs than the US on dairy products, fruits and vegetables, coffee and tea, cereal, confections, and fish, among other products. "We would hope that the United States would similarly honour the commitments that they have made". "I don't understand the obsession with trade relations with Canada", he said on Fox News, given that Canada is the biggest single buyer of American goods and services in the world. So it is even more unusual.

The summit was seen as an opportunity to overcome disagreements on new tariffs imposed by the USA on imports to the country.

On 1 June, the USA imposed a 25% tariff for steel and 10% for aluminium on imports from the European Union (EU), Canada, and Mexico.

In view of threatened United States tariffs on auto imports, which would particularly affect Germany, Grenell said that he was a "big vehicle fan" and knew how important the industry was.

Trudeau said he had reiterated to Trump, who left the G-7 meeting before it ended, that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the U.S. In tweets, Trump insulted Trudeau as "dishonest" and "weak". "He did a great disservice to the whole (G-7)", White House Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow told CNN.

Kudlow said Trudeau had engaged in a "a sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption" and should apologise.

Krueger said the strong words most likely reflected the president's thinking.

"[Mr Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Mr Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council who had accompanied Mr Trump to the summit of wealthy nations on Saturday, said on CNN's State of the Union.

He made this comment at the end of the G7 summit during a news conference on Saturday.

My character, Parthavi, is very different from Archie and I have simply tried to play my character honestly", she said. Talking about her father and producer Boney Kapoor , Janhvi said, "He has given me a lot of love and support".


Trump's post G7 tweets also revisited an old bugbear - the funding of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military alliance.

On Sunday, responding to the messaging from the US administration, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Canada "does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries". The Americans have demanded that a re-negotiated NAFTA include a provision that would kill the deal every five years, unless all three countries agreed to remain in the trade pact.

"International cooperation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks", he said in a statement.

The President insists he has slapped the levies on to hit back at charges imposed by other countries and has accused his allies of trying to milk the Us's economy.

The US has said that the best way to solve trade disputes was by lowering tariff and non-tariff barriers by countries and allowing the free market to operate. Bob Corker has introduced legislation that would roll back the President's power to impose tariffs like the ones he introduced earlier this month on steel and aluminum on US allies, but Republican leaders don't appear eager to take it up even as an amendment to already-moving legislation.

"In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters", German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said when asked about Trump's decision.
