Trump trade fury torpedoes Canada's G7 summit

Trump Attacks Trudeau, Macron, Allies Ahead of G7 Summit: 'Won't Be Talking About the Russian Witch Hunt Hoax for a While' Why Canadian milk infuriates Donald Trump

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has pressed Washington to reconsider the USA tariffs imposed on Canadian steel and aluminum, and encouraged President Donald Trump to work with Canada to address unfair trade.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called United States metal tariffs "insulting" and announced retaliatory measures.

Trump attacked Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a set of tweets sent after departing the summit ahead of schedule.

All the group's leaders had spoken publicly about the summit and the Canadian government had issued the communique when Trump's tweets were posted.

Earlier, Trudeau had told reporters that Trump's decision to invoke national security to justify USA tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum was "kind of insulting" to Canadian veterans who had stood by their USA allies in conflicts dating back to World War I. He reiterated that the recently imposed U.S. tariffs on metal imports from Canada and other nations are a response to what he believes is trade inequality.

At a rare solo news conference before heading to Asia, Trump said he pressed for the G-7 countries to eliminate all tariffs, trade barriers and subsidies in their trading practices.

Trump wrote on Twitter after leaving the summit.

"For us, it was important to have a commitment to rules-based trade", Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel said, before Trump's comments.

Trudeau later said he reiterated to Trump that tariffs will harm industries and workers on both sides of the U.S. On Friday morning, he appeared in no hurry to leave for Canada, walking out of the White House more than half an hour late and answering questions from reporters for almost 20 minutes. The president said that the level of the relationship with the G7 leaders "is a 10". Great meetings and relationships with the six Country Leaders especially since they know I can not allow them to apply large Tariffs and strong barriers to. "I did suggest it and people were - I guess they're going to go back to the drawing board and check it out".

And more: "Looking forward to straightening out unfair Trade Deals with the G-7 countries". While sending their product into our country tax-free. "We have put up with Trade Abuse for many decades - and that is long enough", he continued.

Trump says he will not sign the accords being drawn up at the G7 meeting out of protest.

They say "be careful what you wish for" Trump's trade war is living proof you should also be careful who and what you vote for.

The leaders from Canada, the European Union, France, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States, along with some other observer nations, had dinner at Governor-General Julie Payette's Quebec residence near La Citadelle in Quebec City Friday night. In his tweetstorm - and again on Saturday - the President said that such actions were hurting USA farmers and "killing our agriculture".

"If they retaliate, they're making a mistake", Trump said.

Beyond the bilateral meetings, the G7 leaders took part in two working groups whrre discussion of trade was front and centre. Angela (Merkel) and Emmanuel (Macron), Justin (Trudeau).

But photos of the meeting revealed the obvious tension between Trump and the other leaders, and show a president who appears to be isolated.

"#G7Charlevoix, second day: A new step has been taken".

"He held a press conference and he said the U.S.is insulting".
