Trump calls for elimination of tariffs, end to US being world's 'piggy bank'

Trump says 'let Russia back in' as he heads to G-7 summit

The United States and Canada are facing a diplomatic and trade crisis as top White House advisers hurled insults at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday morning, accusing him of "stabbing the USA in the back".

Finally, Trump rejected as "fake news" a question by CNN about his tense relations with other G7 leaders, especially Germany's Angela Merkel, France's Emmanuel Macron and Canada's Justin Trudeau.

New Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte threw his weight on Friday behind U.S. President Donald Trump's call for Russian Federation to be included once more into Group of Seven meetings.

Mr Trump also said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive auto industry, throwing the G7's efforts to show a united front into disarray.

While the G7 leaders have largely praised Trump for his efforts to stabilise the Korean peninsula, they are unhappy he pulled out of an agreement created to limit Iran's nuclear ambitions.

"We are like the piggy bank that everybody is robbing", he said.

The U.S. actually has a trade surplus with Canada.

Trump has repeatedly threatened to pull out of NAFTA if the agreement is not renegotiated in way that he views as more favorable for USA companies and workers.


President Donald Trump has ramped up his messaging about the G7 and Canada in recent days, accusing the other G7 countries of unfair trade practices.

She also said the European Union would "act" against the USA trade measures.

Trump's renewed comments on trade come amid a growing dispute between Washington and its top allies. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!

The US President gave a press conference at the seat of the summit in the Canadian town of La Malbaie shortly before he left the meeting to head for Singapore, where on June 12 he will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Efe reported.

In Germany, top officials called for Europe to remain unified in the face of rising trade tensions with the USA even as they maintained that America remained its closest partner outside of the continent.

Trump arrived late for Saturday's meeting during the Group of Seven summit of leading industrialized nations being held in Quebec. Mr Kudlow suggested Mr Trump saw Mr Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before that meeting, saying the president would not "let a Canadian prime minister push him around".

Bruce Heyman, the former U.S. Ambassador to Canada, on Monday slammed Donald Trump's treatment of Justin Trudeau, and Canada in general, demanding the president apologize for his surrogate's claim there's a "special place in hell" for people like the Canadian prime minister.

Last year, the United States had a trade deficit of nearly $570 billion with other countries around the world. That's what week, dishonest Justin Trudeau did. "The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the president".
