Trump plows into G-7 summit, facing foreign critics

May will try to persuade Donald Trump to reverse his steel and aluminium tariffs

Trump's abbreviated stay at this Quebec resort saw him continuing the same type of tough talk on trade as when he departed the White House, accusing the summit's host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, of being "indignant".

Trump planned to leave the summit before it ends on Saturday to head to Singapore for the next meeting on his schedule - a high-stakes summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

During his press conference on Saturday, Trump warned foreign countries not to retaliate against the USA tariffs. Manufacturing, an industry Trump focuses on, makes up about 10 percent of United States economic output. And we charge nothing", he said."And it's going to stop.

In another tweet, Trump said he's "looking forward to seeing" Macron and Trudeau and accused them of "charging the USA massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

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. "They understand. They're trying to act like, "Well, we fought with you in the wars" but they don't mention the fact that they have trade barriers against our farmers, they don't mention the fact that they're charging nearly 300-per-cent tariffs".

"With one country we have $375 billion in trade deficits".

The U.S. president's personal attack on the prime minister heightened the potential for confrontation when the two leaders have their first face-to-face meeting in Canada on Friday after Trump's arrival.

Russian Federation was booted from the conference of the world's leading economies after it invaded Ukraine and annexed Crimea in 2014.

Trump has said he'll use the summit to argue that the other six nations are taking advantage of the USA on trade.

Macron came to Ottawa ahead of the G7 summit in part to talk strategy with Trudeau on how to deal with a mercurial president who likes to be liked.

European leaders have moved to salvage the deal after US President Donald Trump's announcement of Washington's exit on May 8. The deal allows Iran to continue 3.67% uranium enrichment, far below the roughly 90% threshold of weapons-grade.

"We're either going to have NAFTA in a better negotiated form or we're going to have two deals", the USA president said. "I may have had a much different attitude", Trump said.

The United States imposed tariffs on imported steel and aluminum on several members of the G-7.

Prime Minister Trudeau is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the USA and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things...but he doesn't bring up the fact that they charge us up to 300% on dairy - hurting our Farmers, killing our Agriculture! The United States pays enormous tariffs on dairy.

President Donald Trump says the USA will either do a three-way free trade deal with Mexico or Canada or direct deals and says there will be a "sunset clause" that will allow for the deal or deals to be reopened at a later date. Canada is strongly of the opposite view, with Trudeau calling that rationale "insulting" since Canada and the USA are so integrated on continental defence and security issues.

Despite earlier reports of a rant over trade from Trump, he said the meeting "was not contentious" and called the relationships between the leaders "outstanding".

"No tariffs, no barriers, that's the way it should be, and no subsidies", Trump said during a 30-minute press conference on the sidelines of the meeting in La Malbaie, Quebec.
