Trump slams Trudeau's post summit remarks as 'very dishonest & weak'

Trump slams Trudeau's post summit remarks as 'very dishonest & weak'

Donald Trump will miss the G7 meeting on climate change, Canadian government officials confirmed Thursday, as he departs the summit early on Saturday morning before the leaders' scheduled meetings are completed.

In a separate post, Trump said the host country Canada "charges the USA a 270% tariff on Dairy Products!"

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has closed the G7 summit by stating he "won't be pushed around" by Donald Trump on trade.

Ahead of the meeting, Trump already set a hostile tone on his Twitter profile, lashing out against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over fees on dairy products, calling him indignant, in addition to criticising unfair tariff barriers.

At his closing news conference, Trudeau had repeated several critical statements about Trump's tariffs that he had made previously, including his assertion that the US's national-security rationale for imposing steel and aluminum tariffs was "insulting", and that Canada would impose retaliatory tariffs.

For weeks, tensions have been bubbling over an escalating trade battle fueled by the US's imposing tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum from Canada and the European Union.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said the other G7 leaders registered their "deep disappointment at the unjustified decision by the U.S." on its closest allies.

As he headed to a G7 summit in Canada, Mr Trump said: "Russia should be in the meeting. We're like the piggy bank that everybody is robbing".

Russia was ousted from the elite group in 2014 as punishment for Vladimir Putin's annexation of Crimea, and its support for pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine.

But Trump's gambit, which his economic adviser Larry Kudlow told reporters amounted to a "free trade proclamation", called the other leaders' bluff - if they're so opposed to his new tariffs, he suggested, why not eliminate all tariffs?

He later said, "It's going to stop, or we'll stop trading with them".

Mr. Trump also warned that retaliating against the US tariffs would be a "mistake", suggesting that the USA might just not deal with countries who fail to treat the his standards.

The president met with leaders from Canada, Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan in Quebec, where trade talks dominated the summit.

US President Donald Trump's attempt to overthrow or renegotiate a series of worldwide agreements constitutes a threat to the post Cold War order, European Union president Donald Tusk warned on Friday.

He says he spoke with world leaders about his trade policies and called for the elimination of tariffs, trade barriers or subsidies.

It is an annual summit bringing together Canada, the United States, the UK, France, Italy, Japan and Germany, which represent more than 60% of global net worth between them.

However, he plans on cutting his trip short to fly to Singapore for his upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trudeau added that he would convey Canada's displeasure over the metal tariffs personally when he met Trump at the summit. While trade is expected to dominate, Trudeau also wants to focus on gender equality and climate change.
