Trump adviser says there’s a ‘special place in hell’ for Canadian leader

The Latest: Merkel finds Trump's action sobering, depressing US blames Canada for G7 fiasco, says Trudeau 'stabbed us in the back'

Ahead of the meeting, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave a joint press conference with French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron.

Following his departure from the summit Saturday evening, Trump tweeted that Trudeau was "Very dishonest & weak" during the summit, drawing criticism from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, including Arizona Republican Sen. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who also attended the summit, told German public television that she found Trump's tweet disavowing the G7 statement "sobering" and "a little depressing". Merkel also said the European Union would "act" against the USA trade measures.

According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with USA (guess they were bragging and got caught!). Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%. "Then Justin acts hurt when called out!"

He was reacting to Trudeau's declaration that Canadians would "not be pushed around" and would hit back at punishing U.S. tariffs on metal imports with "equivalent tariffs". Can't do it in person.

In return, Mr Trump made the French president his guest at his first White House state dinner, after which the U.S. president said of his visitor: "I like him a lot".

Asked about Navarro's comments, Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said, according to reporter Daniel Dale, "Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks". The other six members of the G-7 came to Charlevoix prepared to blast the US for protectionism - and President Trump simply called their bluff.

Later on June 9, after he left the G7 summit, Trump unleashed a barrage of tweets, likely while he was aboard Air Force One on his way to Singapore for his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - "Just left the @G7 Summit in lovely Canada". "For the president the United States to suggest that all is forgotten, that that doesn't matter, that we are fine with one country annexing another country's sovereign territory, and we should just welcome them with open arms back into a community of democracies, is outrageous".

The Germany worldwide lined up primarily in the central midfield, but also featured on occasion as a defender. Flanagan's contract had not been due to expire for another year.

Mr Trump has infuriated the European Union, Canada and Mexico by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports. "We must put the American worker first!"

Before leaving Washington for Quebec, Trump abruptly recommended that Russian Federation be brought back into the G7 in a move that further fueled disharmony among members.

"Despite the tension, the member states" leaders were cordial in person, Trump included. The former are targeted with a 25-percent tariff, while a 2.5 percent tariff applies on other vehicles.

Having left the G7 summit in Canada early, Mr Trump's announcement on Twitter that he was backing out of the joint communique torpedoed what appeared to be a fragile consensus on a trade dispute between Washington and its top allies.

The now mooted communique acknowledged the importance of "free, fair and mutually beneficial trade and investment".

"We spent two days producing a statement and commitments", the statement said. It also maintained the phrase "to fight protectionism", which was also used past year. I would say the relationship is a 10.

The US president, who is in Singapore for a landmark summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, tweeted on Monday that America was paying disproportionately more towards the costs of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (Nato) than fellow members.
