Amid tensions, all G-7 members sign statement

Amid tensions, all G-7 members sign statement

"The withdrawal, so to speak, via tweet is of course. sobering and a bit depressing", Merkel said on Sunday in an ARD television interview following the G7 summit.

Mr Trump's looming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un heightened tension, and White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Mr Trudeau of betraying Mr Trump with "polarising" statements on trade policy that risked making the United States leader look weak on the eve of the historic North Korea summit.

President Trump arrives at Paya Lebar Air Base for a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Sunday, June 10, in Singapore.

"He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea", he said. Trudeau made an error. He should take it back.

Peter Navarro tells "Fox News Sunday" that's what Trudeau did to Trump at the end of the Group of Seven nations meeting in Canada over the weekend.

"That's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference". He also attacked Trudeau's character, calling the Liberal Party leader meek, weak and dishonest.

Trade ministers and politicians from multiple countries have voiced opposition in the media to the tariffs ahead of the G-7 summit, and have indicated they may band together to push the USA president to reverse his decision.

He described Trudeau's actions during the G7 as a "sophomoric play". "He did a great disservice to the whole G7". Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!

Despite the photo's lionization of Ms. Merkel, it was Mr. Trudeau who would soon feel Mr. Trump's erratic wrath.

"They should let Russian Federation come back in, because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table", Trump said.

Donald Trump and Justin Trudeau have been at loggerheads over trade tariffs

European G7 members also expressed solidarity with Trudeau.

In response, Canada, Mexico and the European Union said they were putting in place their own retaliatory measures.

French President Emmanuel Macron wrote ahead of the meeting on his profile: "The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a six country agreement if need be". "Let's be serious", the French official, speaking on condition of anonymity, added.

"A special place in hell" for one of America's closest allies?

"I understand the president was upset", Feinstein told CNN.

American National Security Advisor John Bolton, however, offered a different interpretation of the photograph. "This too shall pass", he wrote.

The accusations largely confirmed the worst-case scenarios the government had for the G7 summit it was hosting in the picturesque Charlevoix region of Quebec where Trump was making his Canadian debut.

And Roland Paris, a former foreign policy adviser to Trudeau, jabbed on Trump on Twitter: "Big tough guy once he's back on his airplane".

But California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat, said Trump wasn't just taking on Trudeau, but all of the United States' best allies by not signing the G-7 statement after a two-day meeting in Canada with leaders of the world's largest industrialized economies.
