White House adviser: Trudeau remarks ‘betrayal’

Investors have called on the G7 to phase out coal generation all together Investors have called on the G7 to phase out coal generation all together

Trump announced yesterday that he would be renouncing support of the joint communique made at the end of the summit, which was a declaration of shared values and goals by the seven countries - the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan - that attended.

The United States and Canada swung further on Sunday toward a diplomatic and trade crisis as top White House advisers lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a day after US President Trump called him "very dishonest and weak".

However, after a string of tweets from President Trump, Merkel warned the European Union will retaliate to any USA tariffs and will work to protect its financial interests.

Mr Trudeau said he had reiterated to Mr Trump, who left the G7 meeting before it ended, that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the US-Canada border. Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%.

Trump reiterated his call to bring Russian Federation back into the Group of Eight bloc on Saturday, stoking an already-fraught relationship between the US and its allies at the G7 summit in Le Malbaie, Quebec.

Let's detail what happened in the 36-ish hours Trump spent in Quebec - and what he and his allies said once he left. "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference".

The comments, made after Trump had left to go to Singapore for his much-anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, infuriated the US president.

Trump took aim at an unspecified news release issued by Canada saying, "they made nearly 100 bln dollars on trade with u.s. (guess they were bragging and got caught!)".

When Mrs Merkel was asked if she was concerned about President Trump's retaliation against European Union counter-measures by imposing tariffs on cars, she said: "First of all, we'll try and see if we can prevent this and then hope that the European Union will respond again in the same unity".

Trump in Singapore today escalated his war of words with Canada and the European Union in a pair of tweets.

The statement continued on: "We spend two days working out a [joint] statement and commitments".

"He really kinda stabbed us in the back", top United States economic advisor Larry Kudlow said of Trudeau on CNN. But the Canadian prime minister still said a few things that didn't go down well inside Air Force One.

After the G-7 summit, Trudeau hosted a news conference where he said that the Canadian government "did not take" the US tariffs against Canada lightly.

"I would say that the level of relationships is a 10 - we have a great relationship".

With the summit ending in a war of words, Abe's attempt to defuse the conflict over US trade policy during the meeting apparently had little effect on Trump after all. But in an apparent nod to Trump, the G7 also pledged to push for swift reforms to the World Trade Organisation which the USA president has said has been a "disaster" for his country.
