Trump delivers warning on trade as he leaves G7 summit

Trump delivers warning on trade as he leaves G7 summit

He said the move was based on Mr Trudeau's "false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive tariffs to our USA farmers, workers and companies".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he will impose retaliatory measures to answer President Trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum: "Canadians: we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Bill Morneau said that message was communicated clearly to Trump during his meetings at the G7 leaders' summit, which is wrapping up Saturday.

In an "extraordinary" exchange between the leaders on Friday, Trump repeated a list of grievances about USA trade, mainly with the European Union and Canada, a French presidency official told reporters.

The US president then had angry words for Trudeau, saying the Canadian prime minister had "acted so meek and mild" in their joint discussions only to later pledge in a press conference that he would not be pushed around.

The statement comes just a few weeks after Trump made a decision to impose large tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada, and Mexico and a few months after Trump hit the rest of the world with the same tariffs.

On the subject of Russia, Trump said he thought it would be "an asset" to have the country in what would be the G8. If the US can not reach a new trilateral agreement, Trump said, then it may seek separate trade agreements with the two countries.

The White House says the change in schedule is strictly logistical, so the president can have meetings before he sits down with Kim Jong Un.

But despite the rows over trade and Russia, Trump rated his relationship with other G7 leaders as 10 out of 10.

Trudeau and the other G7 leaders used their meeting to try to persuade Trump to abandon the tariffs, which affect all of America's G7 allies.

"For us, it was important to have a commitment to rules-based trade", Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel said. "The EU trade surplus with the U.S.is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out".

The G7 summit took place this weekend, in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada.

The US had nevertheless appeared to agree a form of words on contentious issues thanks to an all-night negotiating session by officials from all sides.

"The nature of the debate we had was rather appeasement and it stopped the escalation in terms of behavior", Macron, who had exchanged terse Twitter messages with Trump in the run-up to the summit, told reporters.
