Trump rails against 'unfair' trade at G7 leaders summit

Trump wants Russia to rejoin G-7

I think it would be good for the world. "It could be with Canada, with Mexico, one-on-one", the president added.

President Donald Trump doubled down Saturday on his earlier calls for Russian Federation to re-join the G7.

Merkel said there was a broad agreement among G7 leaders that tariffs and other trade barriers should be reduced.

The administration cited national security concerns in its decision to impose the tariffs on Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

He said: "And so began a long litany of recriminations, somewhat bitter reports that the United States was treated unfairly, that the trading system was totally unfavourable to the United States, the American economy, American workers, the middle class".

"President Trump is targeting the dairy sector because he wants to dump USA dairy into Canada", Lampron told The Canadian Press, adding that Canada imports five times more dairy from the US than it exports.

Trump also suggested that Friday and Saturday's summit had been "very, very successful", and dismissed claims of tensions between the U.S. and other nations, describing their relationship "a 10". He is due to fly to Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, which he described as a "mission of peace".

Trump, who arrived late to the first meeting on gender equality today, will leave before talks on climate change and the health of oceans, after not gaining support in his grievances over U.S. tariffs.

At this second G-7 gathering of Trumps presidency, the question of whether the USA leader would follow through on campaign boasts about punishing worldwide freeloaders has been largely answered.

During his press conference on Saturday, Trump warned foreign countries not to retaliate against the United States tariffs.

"They do so much more business with us, than we do with them, that we can't lose", Trump said, adding: "The numbers are so astronomically against them".

He said he doesn't blame other countries for forging what he says are bad trade deals with the U.S. He blames past U.S. leaders, but warned that, "if it's not going to change, we're not going to trade with them".

U.S. stock indexes initially dipped on Friday, partly due to investor nervousness over the G7 summit, but later turned positive.

Canada and European leaders were enraged, vowed to retaliate, and delivered a number of jabs at the president ahead of the G7 summit.

Investors are also concerned about the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement, which Trump has threatened to terminate.

But a grinning Trump answered for him: "He's happy", he cracked.

However, German Chancellor Angela Merkel did not get a response when she asked Trump for a handshake at the White House.

Trump, who railed against globalization in his election campaign, said he wanted all G7 nations to remove any tariffs, subsidies and other trade barriers.

President Donald Trump has opened his second day at an global summit at a breakfast discussion on gender equality.

Trudeau had made the issue of gender equality a priority for the gathering.

He said: "The United States has been taken advantage of for decades and decades and we can't do that anymore".
