France's Macron threatens rare rebuke of US at summit

Donald Trump tired of Theresa May's 'school mistress' tone G7 leaders meet amid fear of a global trade war

Donald Trump will fly headlong into a confrontation with some of America's closest allies today, as the row over tariffs and fears of a trade war continue to intensify. After years in which Russia's wealthy were invited to base themselves in London without questions being asked about how they made their money, the Home Office is reviewing visas.

As he travels to Quebec City for the meeting of the Group of Seven industrialized economies, Trump mused Friday that Russian Federation ought to be brought back to the group - for no discernable reason.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron say they support U.S. President Donald Trump's efforts to rid North Korea of nuclear weapons. Trump's policies have been more protectionist and confrontational, driven by a perception that the US has been the victim of poorly conceived trade deals. Trump, who was expected to play the role of a spoiler, will also be absent from that.

Friday's trade session, where G7 allies planned to confront the US president over trade tariffs, had "some emotions" but was civilized and diplomatic, said the official who followed the talks.

He has taken a negative measure of his counterparts, as was evident from his not so gentle shove of Montenegrin prime minister Dusko Markovic at last year's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit. Picture: EPALeaders of an array of G7 nations pose for a photo.

"We need the president to be able to distinguish between our allies and adversaries, and to treat each accordingly", he said in a statement.

USA president Donald Trump is scheduled to come to Canada tomorrow to participate in the G7 summit.

But he said even that amount "would not address the underlying, long-run concerns the United States has with China". His predecessors pressed for freer global trade and championed a trading system that required countries to follow World Trade Organization rules. We will straighten that out. They didn't tell you that, did they? "If it doesn't happen, we come out even better", Trump wrote Friday on Twitter, before leaving the White House.

European leaders criticize the USA decision to impose protectionist tariffs on steel and aluminum and to exit the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate agreement. "Whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run". In New York, the Dow dipped in early trade.

In another tweet, Trump said he's "looking forward to seeing" Macron and Trudeau and accused them of "charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

Trudeau said he and Trump have disagreed over Trump's call for Canada to open up its supply management system, which protects dairy, poultry and eggs farmers, during the hard ongoing renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement. German Chancellor Angela Merkelsaid they were "illegal", while Trudeau said they were "insulting and totally unacceptable".

But some of those who Mr Trump will join for two days of talks at a luxury castle in the Canadian mountains have already abandoned the tradition of playing nice in public, whatever the differences behind the scenes. Later the leaders were to tuck into a dinner of lobster, asparagus and maple leaves nestled on a brioche at the end of the first day of talks.
