Trump to leave G7 early, missing environmental talks

Did Trump just fail the G7? RT looks at US leader’s short trip to the summit

Kudlow, who was in Canada with President Trump for the G-7 meeting, told CNN on Sunday that the USA had come to an agreement with the other highly-industrialized nations in the group on a joint communique until Trudeau's "sophomoric play".

On Saturday, Trump took to Twitter to air his complaints, calling Trudeau "dishonest and weak" and saying he'd instructed his team not to endorse the communiqué in response to the prime minister's "false statements" and new tariffs.

The Trump administration imposed aluminum and steel tariffs on the other G-7 members - the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, France, Canada and Japan - ratcheting up tensions between the US and its allies in the run-up to the summit.

The demise of the fragile communique is seen as a major blow to the strength of the G7 alliance, which is made up of wealthy developed democracies that also includes Germany, Japan, France, the United Kingdom and Italy.

Peter Navarro said on "Fox News Sunday" that's what Trudeau did to Trump at the end of the Group of Seven nations meeting in Canada over the weekend.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Mr. Trudeau said.

Trudeau and the other G7 leaders used their meeting to try to persuade Trump to abandon the tariffs, which affect all of America's G7 allies.

Disagreement over the sunset clause was the deal breaker that scuttled a possible meeting between Trump and Trudeau in Washington late last month in an attempt to bring the NAFTA talks to a conclusion.

In an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union," Kudlow argued that Trudeau's critique amounted to a betrayal of the G7, as well as the U.S.

G7 members Germany and France said they stood by the communique despite Trump's decision. "We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", it said, reflecting the typical language of decades of G-7 statements.

In her own tweet, Green Party leader Elizabeth May says Trudeau is handling what she calls Trump's outbursts and bullying as well as anyone, and that all Canadian leaders need to support the prime minister.

-North Korea summit Tuesday as part of the reason Trump chose to withdraw from the communique, suggesting the president did not want to look weak as he prepares to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump called Trudeau "dishonest & weak" after Trudeau said at a news conference that Canada would retaliate for new us tariffs. And what did Trudeau do as soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace?

"If they retaliate, they're making a mistake", Trump said.

Looking for news you can trust? "He should pull back on his statements, and wish President Trump well in the Korean negotiations".

Trudeau fires back on May 31 over the tariffs being applied on the premise Canada poses a national security threat to the U.S. - "Let's be clear: These tariffs are totally unacceptable".
