Trump torpedoes G7 united front as summit ends

Larry Kudlow calls Justin Trudeau's verbal attacks 'amateurish,' a 'betrayal'

Donald Trump threw insults at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Twitter after rejecting the G7 summit statement on Saturday.

Trump was reacting to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who said Saturday that Canada would retaliate for Trump's proposed new tariffs.

Trudeau's office responded to Trump's tweets with a written statement, saying the prime minister's comments in public and in private with Trump were "nothing he hasn't said before" and that he was "focused on everything we accomplished here at the G-7 summit".

Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., also called Trudeau's comments a stab in the back to Trump.

The move enraged Trump, who branded his Canadian counterpart "dishonest and weak" in a furious tweet, announcing the United States would pull out of an agreed communique. Kudlow added that Trump was "not going to let a Canadian prime minister push him around" ahead of the North Korea summit. By comparison, the Canadian steel and aluminium sectors now facing US tariffs are roughly one-quarter the size.

In a tweet posted Saturday evening, Trump said his decision was based on "false statements" made by Trudeau during a press conference he gave, as well as "the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs" on USA companies.

Trump had set a very confrontational tone ahead of the summit by slapping tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from Canada and the European Union, and calling for Russian Federation to be let back into the summit. Trudeau stuck our president in the back.

Petrol And Diesel Prices Slashed For Tenth Consecutive Day
Ahead of the downward slide, fuel prices were hiked continuously for over two weeks, triggered by a spike in global crude prices. Oil corporations stopped their usual practice of revising fuel prices daily on April 24 and only resumed it on May 14.

Before leaving for Singapore, Mr. Trump had delivered a stark warning to America's trading partners not to counter his decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. And I'll tell you this: "To my friends in Canada, that was one of the worst political miscalculations of a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history".

"Trudeau says that we are the problem with tariffs".

The U.S. had a $17.5 billion goods trade deficit with Canada - its second-largest goods trading partner - in 2017, though it did have a goods and services trade surplus of $8.4 billion past year with its fellow North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) member, according to data from the U.S. Trade Representative's office.

The BBC parsed the picture by identifying all nine individuals in it, including British Prime Minister Theresa May, who is barely visible, and Larry Kudlow, head of Trump's National Economic Council as well as several Japanese officials and us national security adviser John Bolton.

"It's actually not a real surprise, we have seen this with the climate agreement or the Iran deal".

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 11, 2018Why should I, as President of the United States, allow countries to continue to make Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our Farmers, Workers & Taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay? The G7 also includes Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan.

Trump insisted relationships with allies were a "10" just before he left the summit.
