Trump banters with allies at G-7 meeting and stresses friendship

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

Trump set the tone before leaving Washington on Friday.

President Donald Trump delivered a stern warning on trade to foreign countries at the Group of Seven summit on Saturday, advising trading partners not to retaliate against US tariffs on the imports of steel and aluminum.

He also expressed a belief that there will be a joint statement at the end of the summit amid speculation that leaders would be unable to agree on a common position.

The top Nafta negotiators from the U.S. and Canada met earlier during the summit, after Trump in the morning complained about what he called the unfair trading practices of his Nafta partners, also including Mexico.

The comments followed a string of tweets from the president railing against Canada, France and other European allies for what the president has described as an imbalanced trade relationship.

Now it has become clear that even the terms that were ultimately agreed to were not honored by the Obama Administration. Richard Blumenthal's (D-Conn.) warning that Iran would receive " an economic windfall " if Congress rejected the deal.

"We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing, and it ends", Mr. Trump told reporters at a press conference at the end of the meeting, just before he jets off to Singapore to meet with North Korea's leader.

But Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was more than a match for Trump in his first meeting with the U.S. President.

US President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron hold a meeting on the sidelines of the G7 Summit in La Malbaie, Quebec.

During a press conference with reporters Saturday, Mr. Trump rated his relationship with some world leaders at the summit, such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, as a "10". "It's going to stop or we'll stop trading with them", he said.

The couple later joined other members of the Royal Family on the palace's front balcony to watch the Royal Air Force fly by. After the ceremony the royal family will head back to Buckingham Palace and gather on the balcony to watch the RAF flypast.

In another tweet, Trump said he's "looking forward to seeing" Macron and Trudeau and accused them of "charging the USA massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

The move was in response to the USA tariffs, which include a 25 per cent tax on steel and a 10 per cent tax on aluminum imports from Canada and many other allied countries.

Trump bragged at a fundraising speech later that month that he made up facts in a meeting with Trudeau, claiming the us runs a trade deficit with its biggest ally.

Thursday, Trump took aim at Trudeau and Macron, accusing them of benefiting from one-sided trade arrangements with the United States.

Talk at the two-day summit has been dominated by discussion of Trump's move to impose punitive tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union - a move French President Emmanual Macron has called "illegal and a mistake" under World Trade Organization (WTO) rules. Straight from the alpha male playbook, Macron first gripped Trump above the elbow, offered his hand palm up and then they pumped hands for several seconds.

He said he did not blame the G7 leaders for the "unfair" trade deals.

At a news conference to close the summit of world leaders in Canada, Mr Trudeau said the people of his country would see the United States president's line on trade as "an insult" after a long history of cooperation between the countries.
