Trump Rejects G-7 Statement, Claiming Trudeau Is 'Very Dishonest and Weak'

11 June 2018

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.

Shortly after Mr. Trudeau said that he was "happy to announce that we have released a joint communique by all seven countries" indicating that the USA was also included, Mr. Trump announced that Washington would reverse its decision and not sign the statement.

He said USA farmers had been harmed by tariffs and other barriers and warned that USA trading partners would need to provide him with more favorable terms: "It's going to stop or we'll stop trading with them".

The trade spat has dominated the meeting, with Canada and European leaders threatening retaliatory action in response to U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum.

"Justin acts hurt when called out!" the USA president said in his latest Tweet.

Trump also lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the country's trade relationship with America on Sunday as well calling Trudeau "very dishonest and weak". Trump has said that Russian Federation should have been readmitted to the negotiations. "$800 Billion Trade Deficit ..."

"He held a press conference and he said the insulting".

"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade anymore".

Starfield is Bethesda's first new game franchise in 25 years
Given that we didn't know if we would see a new Elder Scrolls title anytime in the next five years, this is welcome news indeed. Starfield is a very real game, and it's the next title to be released by Bethesda Game Studios after Fallout 76 .

Soon after Trump's tweets, his national security adviser John Bolton tweeted a now-viral photo of the President sitting down and crossing his arms with the other leaders standing around him.

He is not about to let his feud with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau die down, however. "The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the president".

Mr. Kudlow said Mr. Trudeau "busted up" the G-7 summit with his remarks - even if they were designed for domestic consumption in Canada, and though Mr. Trump is known for making strident comments in other settings.

Unbowed, Trump tweeted anew Monday morning from Singapore, repeating his criticism of USA trade policies with Canada - he also took aim at Germany - in a multitweet rant that went beyond 200 words all told.

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

"And then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door".

Trump is being accused by some of upending "two days of global economic diplomacy" after he tweeted that the United States should not sign the G7 Communique that Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said had been agreed upon in Quebec. Halting all trade with countries that don't drop tariffs is a "very profitable answer", Trump said.
