Trump lashes out at Canada and European Union in Twitter rant

  • Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May told MPs that the G7 had been

Hours after leaving the G7 summit on Saturday, Trump took to Twitter to assault the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's "false statements" and instructed United States representatives to renege on the US' endorsement of the joint communique.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Group of Seven countries have agreed to a joint communique at the conclusion of the alliance's leaders' summit in Quebec.

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.

This weekend's G7 Summit in Canada may have ended in disarray as President Trump took exception to his host's comments on trade and refused to endorse the final communique, but even before the USA stormed out deep divisions on climate and environmental policy were already baked in to the summit's outcomes. The Chinese tariffs were a response to the USA tariffs on steel and aluminium, which impact India too.

Mr Trump thanked Mr Lee for Singapore's hosting of the summit between the U.S. and North Korea that is due to take place at Capella Hotel in Sentosa on Tuesday. "And we have many deals like that", the US President commented.

Touching the thorny issue of Germany's relatively low defence spending, Merkel acknowledged that Trump's criticism was partly correct and that Berlin had to do more to reach NATO's goal of spending to 2 percent of economic output on defence.

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 US national security. While she could imagine such a scenario in the future, Moscow would first have to make real progress on a viable peace plan for the country, she said.

Spokesman Cameron Ahmad said on Saturday night that Mr Trudeau "said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public and in private conversations" with Mr Trump. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., also called Trudeau's comments a stab in the back to Trump.

Trump left Quebec before the G-7 summit had ended to head to Singapore, ahead of a highly anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a longtime foe of the United States.

Saying Trudeau is "dishonest & weak", he also threatened "tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!"

The US President addressed the subject of global trade during an impromptu news conference at the summit Saturday, saying that he did not want to see other countries take advantage of the US over trade.

Trump in Singapore today escalated his war of words with Canada and the European Union in a pair of tweets. These differences need to be sorted out and in addition, India could also lower taxes on American products, increase its imports from the USA and in exchange seek greater exports to the US.
