G7 leaders agree to joint communique: Trudeau

  • America Alone?

"I have made it very clear to the President that it is not something we relish doing, but it something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said.

Prior to his arrival on Friday, the president injected additional controversy by suggesting that the G-7 offer a seat at the table to Russian Federation, which was ousted from the group in 2014.

"We went through it". "Many of the current discussions about trade, especially with the USA, despite the common commitment, will continue". The European leaders sought to show unity against Trump and prod him into concessions on the tariffs, or at least an agreement to talk more about them.

Discussing Russia's absence, Trump made the vague comment that "something happened a while ago where Russia is no longer in". The meeting is Tuesday.

Trudeau criticized Trump's recent decision to place tariffs on steel and aluminum from the European Union, Canada and Mexico, saying it was "insulting" that Trump cited USA national security as his reason for doing so.

Inside Anthony Bourdain's Final Days Before His Death
A source told People that Bourdain was on a tight film schedule, leaving him "absolutely exhausted". "He loved Vietnamese food ". The French prosecutor confirmed that he died by suicide while staying at the Le Chambard Hotel in the old part of Kaysersberg.

He attacked Justin Trudeau, Canada's prime minister and host of the summit, for making "false statements" at his closing news conference, and renewed his threat to impose tariffs on automobiles supposedly "flooding the U.S. Market!".

Tariffs, a major point of contention, were taken on in the statement, though in more diplomatic terms than the earlier back-and-forth between Canada and the U.S. "The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the President".

Mr. Trump responded directly to this statement in a tweet Saturday evening, writing that Trudeau "acted so meek and mild" and then held the press conference afterward criticizing the U.S. "That's what matters", wrote Trudeau.

Trump had already roiled G-7 members ahead of the summit and raised fears of a trade war when he placed tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, the European Union and Mexico.

French President Emmanuel Macron said the agreement would be a good first step and represented the G7 nations' desire to stabilize the situation.

Trump, Trudeau swap jokes but hold firm in trade dispute
Canada and Mexico, the other members of the 1994 pact, have been frustrated by the slow pace of talks to renegotiate NAFTA. The leaders discussed the question of Russias inclusion in the group but reached no conclusion, Trump said.

A senior United Kingdom government official said Theresa May's government stands by commitments made in the communique, and a similar statement was issued by the German government.

"It's a one-time shot, and I think it's going to work out very well", Trump said, adding later that there is also a significant chance of failure.

On board Air Force One, an AFP reporter was told that Trump had approved the agreement, only to be told later of the tweets. "I might have had a very different" response, Trump said.

The joint communique that was thrashed out over two days of negotiations vowed that members would reform multilateral oversight through the World Trade Organization (WTO) and seek to cut tariffs. He said he'd probably know within the first minute of his sit-down with Kim whether he can make a deal. "We should at least consider no tariffs, no barriers - scrapping all of it", the U.S. media reported Trump, as saying to the assembled leaders. Mr. Trump also warned that retaliating against the USA tariffs would be a "mistake", suggesting that the US might just not deal with countries who fail to treat the U.S.at his standards.

Trump's pitch that world leaders eliminate all tariffs - or else - was his latest attempt to reorder the global trading system, which he says is stacked unfairly against the United States. "They know it", he insisted in his departing news conference.

"When I am telling them, they are smiling at me".
