‘Destroying trust with 280 Twitter characters’ - France and Germany rally against Trump

Donald Trump withdraws endorsement of G7 joint statement, slams Trudeau

"In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 twitter characters", Maas remarked, a reference to Trump's tweet rejecting the joint communiqué. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270 percent on dairy!" the U.S. president tweeted.

Speaking on US broadcaster Fox News, US trade adviser Peter Navarro blamed Canada for the disastrous ending to the G7 summit.

"All Justin Trudeau had to do was take the win", Navarro said.

U.S. President Donald Trump angered his G7 allies last week by slapping them with hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum - a move that prompted Canada and the European Union to threaten duties of their own.

Trudeau criticized tariffs imposed by Trump and said: "Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

Some 75 percent of Canadian exports go to the United States, making Canada uniquely vulnerable to a USA trade war.

After Mr Trump's angry tweets, Mr Trudeau's office issued a brief response: "We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the G7 summit".

Navarro wasn't the only top Trump adviser to use his appearance on a Sunday talk show to take pot-shots at Trudeau for daring to respond to the president's tariffs.

According to the newspaper, the Portugal captain has made the "irreversible" decision to end his nine-year stint at Santiago Bernabeu.

"We need to stand with our democratic allies", Feinstein said. Reneging on the commitments agreed in the communique showed "incoherence and inconsistency", it said in a statement.

"Tariffs are going to come way down because we people can not continue to do that". And that's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference.

Canada opposed U.S. President Donald Trump's suggestion to reinstate Russian Federation in the Group of Seven (G7), four years after it was expelled from the group for the Crimea issue. "I personally negotiated with Prime Minister Trudeau", Mr. Kudlow said.

"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.

Canada and Mexico are also taking action in retaliation.

The summit came in the wake of Trump announcing steel and aluminum tariffs on USA allies.

"There remain good reasons to fight for the transatlantic partnership", she said, adding that the current round of trade tariffs that the United States and European Union have imposed on each other did not signal the end of a partnership.

"Not only is the trade deficit with Canada small, the United States runs a current account surplus with Canada", Harper, who served as head of state from 2006 to 2015, told "Sunday Morning Futures".
