After Trump trade spat, UK’s May warns against unilateral action

Theresa May Seeks Queen's Permission To Form A UK Government

United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May was asked an awkward question in the House of Commons: President Donald Trump, or Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau?

Trump said a photograph released by German Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman that went viral captured a friendlier mood than what the snapshot conveyed to many analysts. Nevertheless, the remaining six countries (G6) put the climate agenda on the top of the discussions in an attempt to address this long-lasting issue.

All in all, the United States president is, once again, out of tune with even his own allies on key issues, including trade and gender equality guidelines.

Following Trump's departure from the G7 summit, Trudeau said Saturday at a press conference that USA steel and aluminum tariffs against Canada on national security grounds were "kind of insulting" and that Canada "will not be pushed around".

Trump announced on Saturday that he would not sign the standard Group of Seven (G-7) communique at the end of the summit - after Trudeau announced that all of the group's members had come to an agreement.

MacLauchlan said he supported the Prime Minister's retaliatory tariffs in response to USA tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum and called on opposition parties to join him in expressing support for the federal government. The latter is about the start this week when Canadian foreign affairs minister Chrystia Freeland will travel to Washington targeting on trade talks in an attempt to alter the deteriorating situation and prevent a possible trade war.
