White House takes up fight against 'back-stabbing' Trudeau

The G7's other attendees fear a looming trade war over the Trump administration's move to impose steep tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada and Mexico.

The G7 leaders issued a joint pledge on Sunday to combat protectionism and cut trade barriers after two days of often fierce arguments between the U.S. and both the summit hosts and Europe.

"He held a press conference and he said the U.S.is insulting".

Abe is considered to have a big voice at the G-7 summit given that he is one of the second longest-serving leaders after German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Suzuki said.

Mr Trudeau has vowed retaliatory action next month over United States tariffs on steel and aluminium.

US President Donald Trump - now in Singapore where he will hold a historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un - also had a go at European countries with regard to their financial obligations within NATO.

He concluded: "Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on Trade anymore". Japan has already been subject to the levies as part of Trump's "America First" policies. From promoting democracy and to fighting terrorism, "we're on the same page".

Takumi Shibaike, a doctoral candidate in political science at the University of Toronto, said Abe has to perform a balancing act as the leader of a country that is facing both USA tariffs and the North Korean threat.

Donald Trump, Kim Jong Un prepare for Singapore summit
President Trump's first meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will be held one-on-one, according to a White House official. During his preparation period, Trump continued on Monday to publicly brawl on Twitter with U.S. allies over trade.

However, a report now reveals that it might also give a key feature that accompany the Pixel 3 - wireless charging. If you really hate the notch, then you may want to stick with the Pixel 3 , which will be notch-less.

The calamitous summit ended in disarray after Trump broadsided his allies by disavowing a joint statement the United States had agreed to. -Canada border. Trudeau told reporters that imposing retaliatory measures "is not something I relish doing" but that he wouldn't hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests".

On Russia's possible return to the G7, Merkel said she could imagine it in the future but that the conditions had to be right for that. "We're the closest partners in the world and you don't want to see a dispute over one particular issue poison everything".

The president's latest tirade comes after a war of words erupted between the U.S. and its G7 allies following Mr Trump's decision to reject a joint communiqué Germany's Merkel described Trump's decision to reject the joint communiqué initially agreed between the G7 leaders as "sobering" and "depressing". "We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", it said, reflecting the typical language of decades of G7 statements.

Shortly afterward, the White House issued a separate photo showing a sitting Trump speaking as Merkel, Abe and Trudeau listen.

Another image of the same gathering, however, suggested a more relaxed interaction, with Merkel smiling and Trump making eye contact.

Saturday's picture was not the first awkward moment between Trump and Merkel, who makes no secret of her disagreement with the American leader's approach on trade, his rejection of the deal to limit Iran's nuclear programme and his decision to take the United States out of the global Paris deal to fight climate change.

"I think she is outlining Canada's actual position and is outlining actual steps that have been taken and are being taken", he told Xinhua in an interview. A visit in April 2018 warranted only a working lunch for the German leader, several days after fellow European Union leader Macron got the full, formal state dinner treatment from Trump.
