MACRON’S MUTINY: French President TURNS on TRUMP Ahead of G7 Summit

MACRON’S MUTINY: French President TURNS on TRUMP Ahead of G7 Summit

French President Emmanuel Macron warned Trump in a rare rebuke on Thursday that the other six members of the G7 might form their own group, adding that no leader "is forever".

"According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with USA (guess they were bragging and got caught!). Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

European Union nations' failure to speak and act with one voice overseas is a "danger", Merkel warned, as is the fact "that we have no collective approach to the question of managing migration", vital if freedom of movement within Europe's borders is to be upheld.

Just like Canada, the European Union is preparing counter-measures against USA tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, Merkel said.

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

Some media, though, interpreted the photo as another embarrassing moment for the U.S. Esquire sighed that the photo proved how Trump was still alienating our allies. "Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!" The EU trade surplus with the U.S.is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out.

Europe will implement counter-measures against USA tariffs on steel and aluminium just like Canada, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Sunday, voicing regret about President Donald Trump's abrupt decision to withdraw support for a G7 communique.

"I'm certainly in favour of that", Merkel said in a German television interview.

"The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before-both in public, and in private conversations with the president", Trudeau's office announced in a statement, according to Reuters.

The White House is escalating its verbal attacks against Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of close American ally Canada.

Trump tweeted Saturday evening, saying he was responding to the Canadian leader, who he called dishonest and weak. "I think the bilateral meeting that's scheduled between the two is a really good thing and I think they'll walk through a lot of these issues".

But it seems to be not working because European Council President Donald Tusk told the organization leaders last week that, "looking at the latest decisions of President Trump, someone could even think: With friends like that, who needs enemies?"

Navarro calls that a "socialist communique" that Trump pulled out of.

French President Emmanuel Macron's thumb left a literal imprint on US President Donald Trump's hand at the G7 summit in Canada as they continued their tradition of intense handshakes.

She said the European Union would "act" against the US trade measures, which European leaders regard as going against the rules of the World Trade Organization.

Trump was the last G-7 leader to arrive and will probably be the first to leave on Saturday when he sets off for his nuclear summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un in Singapore. The cost of this bullying behavior is likely to be so high to US workers and companies that it has sparked a bipartisan effort in Congress to block the improper use of "security threat" to start a trade war.

A few hours earlier, Trudeau had told reporters that all seven leaders had come together to sign the joint declaration.
