  • Macron compares phone calls with Trump to sausages

Trump, who argues his tariffs are meant to protect U.S. industry and workers from unfair global competition, told reporters he had suggested to the other G7 leaders that all trade barriers, including tariffs and subsidies, be eliminated.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday rejected a US demand for a sunset clause in NAFTA but said he was prepared to compromise on the issue, which is holding up talks to update the 1990s-era pact.

Shortly before, Trudeau had announced the G7 countries had all agreed on the statement.

"We're not going to be able to do that work under the threat of tariffs". And he emphasized a "good relationship" with Macron, saying they sometimes have a "little test" on trade, but predicting a positive outcome.

Trump added: "Very dishonest & weak". The act was deemed so aggressive that other leaders kicked Russian Federation out of the group and canceled an upcoming summit in Russian Federation.

"It would be with regret but it would be with absolute clarity and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on 1 July", Mr Trudeau said.

But Trump had already said he would not hesitate to shut countries out of the USA market if they retaliate to his tariffs.

Other countries "have been taking advantage of the United States on trade", Trump said, laying out his fundamental grievance as he joined leaders of major industrialized nations assembled at a Canadian resort for the annual meeting.

The truth is a bit more complicated , but Democrats have used tactics to stall some of Trump's selections. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, said he also spoke to Corker about the proposal on Tuesday.

"The European Union is brutal to the United States ..."

And his comments appear to have struck a nerve with Republican McCain, who has previously disagreed with Trump on a number of issues, with the president blaming McCain for sinking his "skinny" repeal of Obamacare. "Or we'll stop trading with them". "The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the president".

PARIS French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday his phone calls with US President Donald Trump and other world leaders were like sausages - better not explain what is inside.

He missed Trudeau's introductory statement and entered the room while Gender Equality Advisory Council co-chair Isabelle Hudon was speaking.

He left the summit early to travel to Singapore for a landmark meeting with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to try to persuade him to give up the country's nuclear weapons.

President Trump earlier told reporters he had proposed the idea of a tariff-free G7 to other leaders and described his talks with them as "extremely productive". "And we charge nothing", Trump said. The Crimea annexation in 2014 resulted in the leading world powers excluding Russian Federation from the club and becoming the G-7 again.

Throughout the escalation in rhetoric, Trudeau slammed Trump's tariffs in several media appearances, calling the decision "totally unacceptable" and "insulting".
