Communique at G-7 released after Trump says U.S. won't endorse it
As tweeted by Trump: "based on Justin Trudeau's false statements at his news conference and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to the U.S. farmers, workers and companies", the USA president has instructed representatives, officials and lawmakers in the United States not to endorse the final G7 communique.
In a second tweet, Mr. Trump said: "PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he "will not be pushed around" Very dishonest and weak".
Soon after the joint statement was announced, the U.S. president tweeted defiantly about not allowing "other countries to impose massive tariffs and trade barriers on its on farmers, workers and companies".
Despite the tensions at the gathering in Canada, Mr Trump rated his relationship with their leaders as a "10" - naming Germany's Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Mr Trudeau, but not the UK Prime Minister.
Trump, who argues his tariffs are meant to protect U.S. industry and workers from unfair global competition, told reporters he had suggested to the other G7 leaders that all trade barriers, including tariffs and subsidies, be eliminated.
Their leaders confronted Trump about how his protectionist policies had given them no choice but to retaliate with tariffs of their own, a person familiar with the encounter said.
The two leaders also discussed the close security and economic partnership between Canada and the United States. They found just the right wording to secure American agreement on matters that never used to be in question, such as supporting democracy, abiding by international-trade rules and fighting terrorism. Instead, it ended in a war of words between Trump and the leader of one of the United States' largest trading partners that threatened to escalate into a full-blown trade war.
But Trump's outburst suggested that any deal had collapsed, and his more or less explicit threat to impose sanctions on imports of cars will outrage his ostensible allies - in particular Germany and Canada who produce many for the large USA market. Macron said Thursday on Twitter, "The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a 6 country agreement if need be". "I might have had a very different" response, Trump said.
Because the U.S. has vowed to ignore the rules of the global trading system that it helped put into place, including the World Trade Organization, trade deals are stalled for the foreseeable future.
Relations between with the United States and the other members, particularly Canada, remained strained on the issue of trade.
European Council President Donald Tusk warned on Friday that Trump's protectionist trade measures pose a threat to the rules-based worldwide order.
After the conclusion of the summit, Trump again said he would not allow other countries to impose barriers on the United States.
In 2014, Russian Federation was ousted from the then Group of 8 after annexing Crimea and supporting pro-Moscow separatists in eastern Ukraine. "I think they'll all come down on Trudeau's side" with the possible exception of Japan's Shinzo Abe, Kirton said.
Kirkegaard said he hopes Congress takes back trade powers from the president.
