  • Trump withdraws endorsement of G7 joint statement, slams 'weak' Trudeau

Retired General Michael Hayden on Monday slammed Donald Trump for his "unstable, erratic and thin-skinned" attack on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, arguing "President Trump made President Trump look weak" with his crusade against America's closest ally. He really kind of stabbed us in the back.

Ms Freeland told reporters that she had met with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Friday and would speak to him later on Sunday, adding that she believes a deal to renew the North American Free Trade Agreement is still possible.

"In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters", German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said when asked about Mr Trump's U-turn, adding it would take much longer to rebuild lost trust.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau then "acts hurt when called out!"

He also said relationships with his G7 partners were a "10" before he left. "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.

Canada's main stock index moved higher, helped by strength in the industrials and materials sectors, as the loonie took a hit amid U.S. President Donald Trump's trade complaints.

The Prime Minister said the United Kingdom still wanted to discuss a post-Brexit trade deal with the USA and said Mr Trump was still looking forward to July's visit to Britain. After that, Trudeau's attack on the president - after a joint communiqué had been signed, and after Trump had already left for the summit with North Korea in Singapore - was not only offensive to Trump, but pathetic.


The top White House economic adviser accused Canada's prime minister on Sunday of betraying President Donald Trump with "polarizing" statements on us trade policy that risked making the American leader look weak on the eve of a historic summit with North Korea.

Mr. Trump addressed the subject of worldwide trade during an impromptu news conference at the summit on Saturday, saying that he does not want to see other countries take advantage of the United States over trade.

At the same time, Easter said, business owners were expressing support for the Trudeau government in trying to de-escalate what has become a trade war. We get on the plane, and then this guy, Trudeau, starts blasting us.

President Donald Trump told French President Emmanuel Macron that the European Union is worse than China on trade during a conversation that portended the tense end to this year's G7 summit.

"He followed up by asking why the USA should "allow countries to continue to make "massive trade surpluses", asserting that it is "not fair to the people of America" and that the U.S. is suffering under a "$800 billion trade deficit". "The non-factual part of this is - they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said on CNN's "State of the Union". "I think within the first minute I'll know". "We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", it said, reflecting the typical language of decades of G7 statements.

When Trump left Quebec, it was thought that a compromise had been reached, despite the tension and the determination of European leaders Macron and Merkel to push back against the USA president's protectionist policies.
