After ‘difficult’ G7 summit, UK’s May warns against unilateral action on trade

German Chancellor Angela Merkel described his change of heart as "sobering and a little depressing".

Donald Trump's spectacular bust-up with America's closest allies at the G7 raises the already high political stakes for Tuesday's summit with Kim Jong Un, and highlights the dangers of the USA leader's self-serving diplomacy.

Joining that view was Nicholas Burns, a former USA undersecretary of state under President George W. Bush, who called Canada "the best neighbor we could have". "Here in Canada, our federal government is delaying putting tariffs in place until July 1st", Aylward said.

United States administration announced on May 31 that will start imposing to EU, Canada and Mexico a 25% duty on steel and a 10% duty on aluminium.

House vote still looms at Net Neutrality comes to an end
Under the old policy, any blocking or slowing of websites would directly run afoul of the rules, inviting immediate enforcement. Another misleading ISP claim is that they want to get rid of Title II, and not net neutrality rules in general.

The G7 summit is coming down to the wire.

But speaking to the Commons this afternoon, Theresa May said she still believed the forum played an important role, telling MPs "it is only through continued dialogue that we can find ways to work together to resolve the challenges we face". At a news conference after his meeting with Kim, the president said the Canadian leader must not have realized that Trump had televisions on Air Force One, allowing him to monitor Trudeau's news conference at the end of the G-7 summit.

Trump accused the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, of being "dishonest and weak" for pointing out that America's excuse for imposing aluminum and steel tariffs on his country - that they pose a national security threat to the United States - makes no sense. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" The latter is about the start this week when Canadian foreign affairs minister Chrystia Freeland will travel to Washington targeting on trade talks in an attempt to alter the deteriorating situation and prevent a possible trade war.

Well, if the Western group of nations cannot get used to the mercurial character of President Trump, what can be expected from other world leaders.
