President Trump Barrels into Tense G-7 Summit

Donald Trump is ramping up his blast of Canada on Twitter this morning over what he says are unfair trade practices as the USA president prepares to make his Canadian debut later today. In a statement at the time the countries, which include the U.S., France, Canada, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and Japan, condemned Russia's actions as "illegal" and in "contravention of worldwide law".

Trudeau meets with Trump late Friday.

"We will continue to demonstrate that we're interested in defending Canadian interests and, on top of that, it turns out I'm defending American interests because these tariffs they're putting forward are going to hurt American workers as well", Trudeau said Thursday.

In the last week, Trump and Trudeau have exchanged tough words over trade after the USA imposed hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, Mexico and Europe.

Both the European Union and Canada have filed complaints against the tariffs with the World Trade Organization (WTO), alleging the measures violate worldwide laws. Trump's "America first" agenda triggered widespread criticism at the G20 summit past year.

Macron came to Ottawa ahead of the G7 summit in part to talk strategy with Trudeau on how to deal with a mercurial president who likes to be liked.

Trudeau and Macron also had words for Trump, saying this during a joint press conference in Canada about the Trump administration's rationale for new tariffs: "This is ridiculous to think they could be a threat to national security".

"Russia is focused on other formats, apart from the G7", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a statement reported by the government-controlled Sputnik news agency.

"Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the USA massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers", Trump wrote on Twitter Thursday.

Before the president arrived at the summit, he criticized Canadian tariffs on USA dairy products, adding that he was "looking forward to straightening out unfair Trade Deals with the G-7 countries".

Merkel's proposal was strongly supported by other leaders at the meeting, the official said, adding that European Commission President Juncker said he was ready to invest personally in it.

France and other USA allies have also bristled at Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. "I regard this much like a family quarrel", Ludlow said.

Mr. Trump also delayed a one-on-one meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, whom he feted with a state dinner at the White House in April. So far the prime minister has said only that Italy remains a committed member of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and a special ally of the U.S., and that he will push for a review of sanctions against Russian Federation.

The President of the European Council dismissed Mr Trump's leadership a "seasonal turbulence" and predicted the G7 group would prevail despite America's isolationist policies.

Friday morning, he held meetings with U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, Japan's Shinzo Abe, Italy's Giuseppe Conte, and German leader Angela Merkel.

Fellow members of what was then the G8 suspended Russian Federation after it took control of Crimea from Ukraine.

However, Trump wasn't the only one calling for Russia's return.

Trump imposed the tariffs on the grounds that weak domestic industries could affect US national security. The official said disagreements remain, particularly with the USA on a number of issues, but the goal remains to reach agreement on all the big issues.
