Canadian leaders oppose Trump proposal to reinstate Russian Federation in G7

Canadian leaders oppose Trump proposal to reinstate Russian Federation in G7

Trump had set a combative tone before leaving Washington on Friday, saying he was "going to deal with the unfair trade practices" of other G7 members.

His attacks have been widely criticized, as his desired trade punishments would both fracture America's relationship with its closest allies and hurt Americans economically.

USA officials travelling with Trump admitted they had been surprised by Trump's suggestion, which one said was "not something planned", and Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said it had not been formally put on the G-7 table.

Trump fired back, tweeting, "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers". G7 chiefs have largely praised Trump for his efforts to stabilize the Korean peninsula, but they are unhappy he pulled out of an global agreement to limit Iran's nuclear ambitions. "We have little tests every once in a while when it comes to trade".

Following bilateral talks, Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron say they're making progress on trade.

The group managed a common statement in which they agreed to disagree on some issues, only to have Trump disavow the document in a tweet after leaving the meeting.

Macron launched the offensive on Thursday at a joint news conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The two-day summit in Canada has been marred by fears of a trade war and tit-for-tat exchanges of hostile tweets, with U.S. trading partners furious over Mr Trump's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from the EU, Canada and Mexico as part of his "America First" agenda.

Peter Navarro tells "Fox News Sunday" that's what Trudeau did to Trump at the end of the Group of Seven nations meeting in Canada over the weekend.

Of course we strive for perfection but fortunately, there was no harm done as far as it affected the result". "I don't know what happened".


Instead, Canada's expected to issue a chair's summary of the meeting.

Navarro calls that a "socialist communique" that Trump pulled out of.

European members of the G7 unanimously oppose US President 's call for Russian Federation to be readmitted into the club, French President Emmanuel Macron's office said Friday.

The president appeared to be in no hurry to leave for Canada earlier Friday.

Macron has said how unhappy he is with U.S.

Trump made the comments in tweets from Air Force One as he headed to Singapore for his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

The captions reads: "Day two of the G7 summit in Canada: spontaneous meeting between two working sessions".

He told reporters the United States' attitude must lead other nations to "reforge the European front".
