But the question of tariffs - as well as the US decision to pull out of a deal created to curb Iran's nuclear ambitions - is what most G7 members want to sort out.

Trump responded by accusing Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of hurting the United States with unfair trade practices.

"But we don't have high expectations they will influence President Trump", he said.

French lawmakers began debating Thursday a ban on mobile phones in public schools, one of President Emmanuel Macron's campaign pledges which critics say will do little to counter classroom disruptions or limit cyberbullying.

Mr Trump and Mr Kudlow are travelling to Quebec later this week for a meeting of leaders from seven of the world's leading economies, and several of those officials have expressed frustration at Mr Trump for his protectionist approach to trade.

Thousands of Jordanians protest government's austerity plan
The official unemployment rate has risen above 18 per cent, and it's believed to be double that among young Jordanians. Protest organizers urged the king to cancel the tax plan, saying the poor are being targeted disproportionately.


Trump held a similar call with British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday. European allies have urged Trump to reconsider.

With his new tariffs increasing USA isolation, President Donald Trump will head to Canada on Friday for a meeting of the Group of Seven industrialized nations.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe wants to ensure that the USA puts his nation's security concerns front and center as talks with Kim Jong Un move forward.

The call took place on the same day that the Trump administration slapped import tariffs on steel and aluminum from Mexico, the European Union, and Canada.

Macron had perhaps been hoping to leverage his close relationship with Trump to sway him on trade.

Trudeau added that he would convey Canada's displeasure over the metal tariffs personally when he met Trump at the summit. In an interview with the BBC in January, Macron said he had a "very direct relationship" with his USA counterpart.

"Canada is fighting back to support Canadian workers and the businesses that employ them", Goodale said.

England have conceded just twice in their last seven games and haven't let one in during the opening 45 minutes in that run. One of the keys of us getting through these two matches was to try and make sure every member of our squad gets game time.
