Trump withdrew from G7 statement to show toughness: Kudlow

Trump G-7

Kudlow had been negotiating nicely with Trudeau at the summit in Quebec and the United States had agreed to join the joint communique, but Trump pulled out after he felt betrayed by Trudeau's news conference where the prime minister called Trump's tariffs on Canadian aluminum and steel exports "insulting".

Morneau said that during the G7, Canadian officials had the opportunity to present Trump and his team some numbers that Morneau described as indicative of how trade works between the two countries.

In her first takeaway from the contentious meeting, Merkel expressed consternation about the US president's backtracking on the summit's final statement, while emphasizing that she'll keep talking with Trump.

President Trump concluded his G7 meetings, declaring the USA has been taken advantage of for decades on trade, and assured that all of the involved countries are much more committed to fair trade with America.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday Russia should also be attending a Group of Seven nations summit, a controversial idea that even Moscow seemed to reject, as he headed for a chilly reception at the meeting in Canada, where other G7 leaders are set to clash with him over trade.

He really kind of stabbed us in the back.

But Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday on ABC's "This Week", "I'm not so sure John's right about where America is on trade".

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.

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

Other photos taken of the discussion were soon released, by the White House and the offices of other leaders.

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

Asked if she was concerned that Trump could retaliate against European Union counter-measures by imposing tariffs on cars, Merkel said: "First of all, we'll try and see if we can prevent this". -Canada border. He said unleashing retaliatory measures "is not something I relish doing" but that he wouldn't hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests".

"We are not going to live with the deals the way they are", Trump said. Trump imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on imported aluminum from the European Union on June 1, a move he said was meant to protect USA national security.

She said that she still believes Trump shares the principled stance of the G7 on "many issues".

He insisted, like Trump himself has done many times, that Canada has enormous tariffs itself - especially on certain dairy and food products.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that the final communique was agreed by the all seven countries.
