Trump Attacks Trudeau, Macron, Allies Ahead of G7 Summit: 'Won't Be Talking About the Russian Witch Hunt Hoax for a While'

Trump Attacks Trudeau, Macron, Allies Ahead of G7 Summit: 'Won't Be Talking About the Russian Witch Hunt Hoax for a While'

President Trump lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the country's trade relationship with the U.S. Sunday accusing Canada of "charging massive Tariffs" to U.S. businesses.

That move was met with criticism at home, including from Republicans, and announcements of retaliatory tariffs from USA allies. Trump has also maintained his stance that tariffs are a national security issue, because unfair trade deals "affect our military", he said.

Earlier, Macron posted a video of he and British Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, noting the European powers are "looking together in the same direction".

It also covered other issues including relations with Russian Federation. He also made controversial comments to reporters calling for Russian Federation, which had been kicked out of the G8 in 2014 over its Crimea invasion, to have its membership reinstated.

"Russia should be in this meeting". I think having Russian Federation back in would be a positive thing.

"Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks ... and we refrain particularly from ad hominem attacks when it comes from a close ally", Ms Freeland told reporters in Quebec City on Sunday. "It may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run". We will stand by them and anyone who would depart from them, once their back was turned, shows their incoherence and inconsistency. "Because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table".

Other G7 partners also seemed stunned by Mr Trump's reaction, and pledged to support the communique.

Kudlow said Kim must not see "American weakness" on the eve of the Tuesday summit.

Asked what Trudeau did that amounted to betrayal, Kudlow criticized the Canadian leader for holding a press conference in which he called US tariffs "insulting".

He added, "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".

Other G7 leaders, including May and Merkel, have also spoken out against the USA tariffs. And what did Trudeau do as soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace?

After President Trump left, from Air Force One, he rage-tweeted an attack on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and announced the US was revoking its agreement to accept the joint statement of the G-7 members.

The joint statement of the G7, which Trump has said he would not endorse, highlighted the importance of "free, fair and mutually beneficial trade and investment". France will host next year and the United States in 2020.
