Trump turns nasty against allies at G-7

Talks with Trump are like sausages, says French President Macron: Report Macron compares phone calls with Trump to sausages

President Donald Trump shares a toast with French President Emmanuel Macron during the State Dinner for Macron and Mrs. Brigitte Macron of France during a visit to The White House, April 24, 2018 in Washington, DC.

While President Trump has riled worldwide markets and upset some of the United States closest allies with his norm-defying unilateral actions on trade policy, Kudlow contended that the president "regards himself as a free trader" but is working to reform what he sees as a broken system. At a press conference following the summit, Trudeau repeated his earlier description of USA trade tariffs as "insulting" and vowed retaliatory measures would come in July.

Throughout the summit, photographers captured photos of the tension between Trump and other world leaders.

Canada has been particularly outraged that Trump invoked a national security justification for his global tariff on steel and aluminium imports, even those from close U.S. allies.

Trade was a massive issue at this year's summit with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and President Trump butting heads. Andrea Nahles, the leader of Ms. Merkel's coalition partner, the center-left Social Democrats, was openly and personally critical of Mr. Trump.

That, in turn, prompted harsh reactions from European officials and members of Congress, including Republican Sen. On the contrary, six countries will strive for productive dialogue and "polite relations" with the US.

Talks with Trump are like sausages, says French President Macron: Report

By the end of those sessions, the allied nations had drawn up a joint statement, which the Canadian government released, noting it had been agreed to by all seven countries. While Merkel, in the picture, can be seen standing behind a table with both hands pressed firmly into its surface atop some documents, Trump with his arms crossed stares back.

Some Twitter users did not agree with Bolton's opinion, criticizing Trump's policies and the way his administration deals with U.S. allies. "According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with US (guess they were bragging and got caught!). Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

"What Donald Trump is doing isn't exactly celebrated across the United States", he said.

Trump pulled Macron aside for a quick chat on their way into the summit and Macron posted the pleasantries on Twitter. "Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!"

Despite the president describing his relationship with the other leaders as "a 10", conversations between the world's largest industrialized countries were thought to be intense as the allies faced off with Trump over tariffs his administration has imposed on them.

Nevertheless, Saturday's events only reinforced the chancellor's commitment to forging a stronger, more unified European Union.
