Donald Trump Withdraws Endorsement Of G7 Joint Statement

10 June 2018

U.S. President Donald Trump shakes hands with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during a meeting at the G-7 summit, Friday, June 8, 2018, in Charlevoix, Canada.

President Donald Trump on Saturday tweeted the USA won't endorse the joint statement from the Group of Seven summit, and threatened auto tariffs.

"This agreement.is good news and it marks a collective desire to stabilise things", Mr Macron said.

"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 Trump said that the notion that the G7 summit was in any way contentious was "fake news", telling reporters Saturday that the conference had been "so wonderful".

Trump said that would be a bad idea.

Djokovic sprinted out to 5-2 but was reeled back in to 5-5, having squandered three points for a double break in the sixth game. Cecchinato won on his fourth match point by hitting a backhand victor down the line as Djokovic tried to serve and volley.

Merkel said European Union countries at the summit agreed that the conditions to readmit Russian Federation had not been met and even Moscow seemed to reject the suggestion.

"And in the G7, which used to be the G8, they threw Russia out - they should let Russia come back in because we should have Russia at the negotiating table", Trump added.

That leaves Trump diametrically opposed with Canada, which says renegotiating the deal every five years would create perpetual uncertainty and harm long-term investment. "We're like the piggy bank that everybody is robbing and that ends".

In response, Trump clapped back against Trudeau on Twitter, writing - without calling Trudeau out by name - "The United States will not allow other countries to impose massive Tariffs and Trade Barriers on its farmers, workers and companies".

While Trump set a combative tone before even arriving at the summit with tweets about unfair trade deals, he appeared affable and joking at multiple brief photo opportunities and praised Macron for helping to work out trade issues.

Trump is hoping to get Kim to agree to shut down his nuclear weapons programme in what will be a monumental win for the president who a year ago was locked in a war of words with Kim that some feared would escalate into a world war.

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. "Or we're going to make a deal directly with Canada, directly with Mexico", Trump said. "We have a little test every once in a while when it comes to trade".

His comments follow his administration slapping Canada with hefty fines, as Ottawa looks to implement its own levies on American products starting Jul. 1. The president says at the Group of Seven summit: "If they retaliate, they're making a mistake".

"We also agreed that we want to reduce tariffs and remove trade barriers and also to reduce subsidies", Merkel said at her closing press conference.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will not be pushed around", Trudeau told reporters on Saturday.

Trump left the summit early for Singapore, where he will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next week.
