Global markets higher ahead of Trump-Kim meeting

Global markets higher ahead of Trump-Kim meeting

Former prime minister Brian Mulroney predicts Donald Trump's unprecedented diatribe against Justin Trudeau is a passing storm.

"This year's G7 meeting is already going down as the G6 + 1, with six members on one side and President Trump on the other", Al Jazeera's John Hendren, reporting from Quebec, said.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were all jokes and smiles for the media as they met at the Group of Seven leaders summit in Quebec on Friday, but neither budged on the serious trade dispute between them.

Trudeau has so far not commented on Trump's tirade.

A theory that Justin Trudeau has fake eyebrows took over the Internet on Monday. Can't do it in person. "He's a pathetic little man-child".

"It will certainly be an exciting day and I know that Kim Jong-un will work very hard to do something that has rarely been done before. create peace and great prosperity for his land".

Ditching entourages, Trump and Kim Jong Un to meet 1 on 1
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo seemed to hint that the outcome of the talks might not be what Trump has promised in the past. Singapore's reputation for rigid law and order was seen as a major factor for being chosen to host Tuesday's summit.


Earlier, the White House escalated the unprecedented criticism against Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time.

Canadian journalist Sean Craig got to the bottom of the brow-troversy by noting that Trudeau's left eyebrow is thicker than the left one, making it look like it slopes differently than his right eyebrow.

"We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the #G7 summit". He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.

He did him a favour and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique. And what did Trudeau do as soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace?

He added that EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker thanked Trudeau "for the excellent preparation and chairing of this challenging summit". "That will not stand".

"It was betrayal", the top White House official said.

At least 7 dead, injured in Guatemala volcano eruption
An estimated 25 people, including at least three children, were killed and almost 300 injured on Sunday, officials said. The Fuego volcano, about 40km south-west of the capital Guatemala City , spewed rocks and ash into the sky on Sunday.


Literally. Several people pointed out on Twitter that Trudeau's eyebrows seemed to be falling off.

"In general, it was an attack on the president", he claimed. But the trolled Prime Minister had his staunch supporters too.

The motion in parliament, introduced by the opposition New Democrats, rejected "disparaging ad hominem statements by USA officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations". The first issue involved the World Trade Organization.

"All Mr. Trudeau was doing, in a rather gentle way, was articulating the position of his government, which would be the position of any Canadian government in these circumstances", he said, adding that the counter-tariffs make sense.

The prime minister's silence on Monday came in sharp contrast to a roar of disapproval among Canadian politicians, who banded together across party lines to denounce Trump's attack and praise the bilateral and trading relationship between the two neighbours. "I think we're in a hard place now, I'd like to see this thing settle down".

The group consists of the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Britain.

"I think he set the news in a completely wrong direction as he headed off to Singapore", Heyman said. "My touch, my feel - that's what I do".
