France, Canada warn Trump on trade war

She said with the Trump administration's decision to implement new tariffs on aluminum and steel imports to the United States, "multilateralism right now is in a complicated and hard phase".

Trump administration officials on Sunday accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of stabbing President Trump in the back, blaming him for the president's refusal to endorse a joint statement with other world leaders. He also attacked Trudeau's character, calling the Liberal Party leader meek, weak and dishonest.

Mr Trump's looming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un heightened tension, and White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Mr Trudeau of betraying Mr Trump with "polarising" statements on trade policy that risked making the USA leader look weak on the eve of the historic North Korea summit.

Trump will arrive in Canada on Friday, on the way to Singapore where he hopes to strike a historic nuclear deal with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

He described Trudeau's actions after the G7 summit as a "sophomoric play". In a series of tweets, the USA president called him "very dishonest and weak" and accused him of making false statements.

Following the G7 summit in Quebec, Canada, over the weekend, Trump and Trudeau engaged in a war of words over Trump's decision to impose sizeable tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum imports.

Mr Trudeau said: "Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable but we also will not be pushed around".

"What the vain and delicate Trump apparently expected Trudeau to say was that the summit was a success due entirely to the President's generous participation, and that a grateful, moist-eyed Canada would no longer retaliate against his unjustified tariffs".

In the United States , where care is more expensive than anywhere else , Rasgon believes many cases go undiagnosed and untreated. Most experts agree that a lack of good mental health care is at the core of the suicide problem.

A Trudeau spokesman, Cameron Ahmad, said Saturday night that Trudeau "said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public and in private conversations" with Trump.

Trump left the G7 Summit in Canada early for Singapore.

"That's what matters", he wrote.

President Donald Trump fired off a volley of tweets on Monday venting anger on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, the European Union and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the wake of a divisive G7 meeting over the weekend.

French President Emmanuel Macron's office reacted Sunday by saying that "international cooperation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks".

Trump dispatched two of his top economic aides, former cable tv pundit Larry Kudlow and one-time academic Peter Navarro, to the Sunday morning television talk shows.

Trump fired off a volley of tweets on Monday further venting anger at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, the European Union and Trudeau. And that comes right from Air Force One. The first issue involved the World Trade Organization. "It's for them that we made strong commitments during this #G7Charlevoix". So far in 2018, Canada is also the top export destination for United States goods, with over $98 billion worth of goods going over the border.

According to Trump, it's not fair that other countries like Canada and India "have trade barriers against our farmers". "The European Union is brutal to the United States".
