Trump vows to have fair trade relations with other countries

Trump vows to have fair trade relations with other countries

Despite being at odds with other countries at the gathering in Canada, Mr Trump rated his relationship with their leaders as a "10" - naming Germany's Angela Merkel, French president Emmanuel Macron and Canada's Justin Trudeau, but not the UK's Prime Minister.

Trump said on Twitter that he would not sign the communique, calling Trudeau "very dishonest & weak" for his trade criticism. Kudlow suggested Trump saw Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before that meeting, saying the president won't "let a Canadian prime minister push him around".

Just as the G7 meeting of the world's leading industrialised nations had seemed to weather Mr Trump's threats of a trade war, the president backed out of the group's joint statement that Mr Trudeau said all the leaders had come together to sign.

Trump infuriated his G7 allies recently by slapping them with the hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum - a move that prompted Canada and the European Union to threaten duties of their own.

But Trudeau says what the leaders did this weekend was "roll up our sleeves" and figure out language they could agree to on a broad range of issues.

"He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea, nor should he", Kudlow said.

Trudeau has his closing press conference this afternoon.

He called Mr Trudeau "dishonest & weak" after Mr Trudeau said at a news conference that Canada would retaliate for new USA tariffs.

President) Donald Trump, despite the chaos, the uncertainty that the Trump administration has caused Ontario", Wynne said. Ford had little to say about the announcement, noting only that the election is about change and people are fed up.

"There is a special place in hell for any for leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door and that's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference, that's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did", Navarro said on "Fox News Sunday".

"We urge Russian Federation to cease its destabilising behaviour, to undermine democratic systems and its support of the Syrian regime", said a joint statement issued at the end of a summit in Canada. He said that Canada has to stand up for itself.

In his earlier interview, Kudlow said he personally negotiated with Trudeau during the two-day G7 summit in Quebec and insisted the USA agreed to the language in the communique in good faith. He will miss the climate session of the G7 summit.

Trump's admission would make the tariffs illegal. John McCain and ex-FBI director James Comey - who Trump unceremoniously fired a year ago - took to Twitter to offer their support.

The statement made no mention of Russian Federation being invited back into the group from which it was kicked out of in response to its 2014 annexation of Crimea despite Trump's insistence that the club would be better off if brought Russian Federation back into the fold.

"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in. It's for them that we made strong commitments during this #G7Charlevoix".

Canada has flatly rejected welcoming Russian Federation back to the G7 fold, pointing to its annexation of Crimea.
