Trump refuses to endorse G-7 communique, threatens Canada with more tariffs

The six-plus-one tone of the gathering in Quebec means the leaders from Canada Britain the United States France Germany Ital

After departing from the Quebec summit for Singapore, Trump tweeted that Trudeau's remarks at a news conference, where he said Canada would not be pushed around, "were very dishonest and weak".

"As Canadians, we are polite, we're reasonable, but also we will not be pushed around", Trudeau said.

He blamed the summit's host: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The prospect that he could be moving toward an even greater protectionist trade policy is likely to chill financial markets anxious about tit-for-tit escalation that could lead to a full-blown global trade war.

"To do this, the United States has imposed tariffs on aluminum and steel imports".

Vice President Mike Pence told Trudeau he would have to agree to that before Trump would agree to meet him.

Trudeau managed to salvage support from some G7 countries for a charter to reduce plastic pollution in the oceans, an investment in education for women and girls, and a reaffirmation of the Paris climate accord, he said Saturday.

No female athletes among highest 100 earners on Forbes list in 2018
However, female athletes notably failed to break into the top 100 for the first time since Forbes began publishing its ranking. Virat Kohli is yet again the sole cricketer on the list taking in $24 million largely due to his lucrative endorsement deals.

Meanwhile, the European Union - the world's largest trading bloc - announced last week it would impose retaliatory tariffs on the us beginning in July, over Washington's duties on steel and aluminum imports from Europe.

Heading into the leaders' summit in the town of La Malbaie, there were deep concerns the G7 alliance was fast becoming a G6 plus one because of a widening gulf between the US and the rest of the group in key areas such as climate and trade.

"We have a tremendous trade imbalance", Trump said during Saturday's press conference. Its statement took a generally positive view of the leaders' positions on trade matters while acknowledging tensions with the US.

"We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing, and that ends", Trump said in a press conference Saturday.

The Prime Minister's Office responded by saying Trudeau has been consistent with Trump.

Journalists traveling on Air Force One to Singapore with Trump had been told that the United States had made a decision to be part of the joint communique, which represented a minimal show of unity amid deep disagreements between Trump and the other six leaders over trade.

In retrospect, the consensus had appeared shaky from the outset, and even as Trump flew out it was clear that the summit had failed to heal the rift on trade.

"Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!", the president wrote.

Trump told journalists on June 9 that "it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in".

"They do so much more business with us than we do with them ... the numbers are so astronomically against them … we win that war a thousand times out of a thousand".

But while Trudeau's months-long effort to reach out to USA politicians and business leaders at every jurisdiction and level may not have won over Trump, it may pay dividends if Trump's attack finally spurs support from business groups or Congress.

Speaking in a solo press conference from the resort town of La Malbaie in Quebec, the president said that for too long, USA trade has suffered from "bad" trade deals agreed to by past US presidents. "With that being said I think we'll probably easily make a deal". All three trading partners have threatened to retaliate with their own levies against USA imports. "Any new administration or any new government is going to have its own approach or its own priorities", he said at the time.

Such a move could make it almost impossible to renegotiate the terms of the 1994 NAFTA pact between the United States, Canada and Mexico. Moscow repeatedly refuted accusations and took retaliatory measures.
