Merkel Blasts Trump for 'Withdrawal by Tweet' From G7 Statement

Chancellor has criticized the US withdrawal from the final declaration of the G7 summit

The EU has vowed to retaliate against US metal tariffs imposed by US President Donald Trump, and tensions worsened at a Group of Seven summit in Canada after Trump rejected an attempt to write a consensus statement and bitterly insulted the Canadian host.

"I asked for changes".

"I don't think that inflammatory language makes things better".

Even so, dialogue with the United States president must continue and global partnerships aren't over, she said.

"That was very friendly".

"We would hope that the U.S. will similarly honor the commitments that they have made", he said, speaking before a parliamentary statement on the summit by Prime Minister Theresa May.

Looking focused or exasperated depending on the viewer's interpretation, Merkel is flanked by British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron, their faces largely obscured.

And in a picture released by the Japanese leaders officials, Shinzo Abe looks powerful as he towers over the seated U.S. leader.

The Division 2 Gets Extended Gameplay Stream After Ubisoft E3 Conference
One of the big criticisms of The Division 1 was that it did not offer enough end-game content for players. The Division 2 releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 15, 2019.

The photo was also posted on Twitter by Trump's national security adviser John Bolton, who stated that the USA president's posture sent a message to other G7 countries that the United States will no longer be their bank.

It was a picture that, by several accounts, summed up the tense G7 summit over the weekend in Quebec, Canada.

Germany, Europe's top economy, finds itself in the sights of the United States president due to its large trade surplus and defense spending criticized as too low. "They don't take our farm products", Trump complained at the news conference Tuesday.

The U.S. had a trade surplus with Canada of about $7.7 billion in 2016, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, although Statistics Canada data show the U.S. had a trade deficit of about $14.6 billion.

The G-7 countries are working around the clock to craft a full communique to be signed by their leaders Saturday, a Canadian official said at the end of talks Friday.

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada".

The German chancellor's comments on Sunday come after Trudeau announced that Canada would implement its own retaliatory tariffs on the U.S. Trump had given Canada, the European Union and Mexico temporary exemptions from the steel and aluminum tariffs he first announced in March, but said at the end of May that he would be ending the exemptions.

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".
