Police Fire Water Cannons Against G-7 Protesters

French President Emmanuel Macron and US President Donald Trump jabbed at each other even before the American touched down on French soil.

Macron opened the summit with a dinner at the base of a clifftop lighthouse overlooking Biarritz, at which a menu of piperade, a Basque vegetable specialty, tuna and French cheeses awaited the leaders.

European Council President Donald Tusk warned that this may be one of the last chances "to restore our political community".

And almost everyone kept a trade threat close at hand. Neither addressed the tech tax or tariffs. For a meeting where the disputes traditionally happen in private, the results were looking grim.

In a televised speech before the summit, Macron said he hoped to find common ground with US President Donald Trump, who acrimoniously ended last year's G7 meeting in Canada, leaving the gathering and rejecting the final communique, an agreed upon statement released by all members. He already rejected Trump's request to let Russian Federation rejoin the group five years after being expelled over its seizure of Crimea. But I think that the great challenges that we have: "Climate, biodiversity, the technological transformation, the fight against inequality, this global insecurity, we will only resolve them by acting together, by reconciling", he said. "Big weekend with other world leaders!" Accusing Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro of lying about his efforts to tackle climate change, Macron promised to place the burning Amazon rainforest at the top of his agenda for the weekend, and threatened to veto a trade deal between the European Union and the Mercosur bloc that includes several South American countries.

Ireland joined in the threat. "He's seen what president Trump can do", he said.

Issuing a statement would be "pointless", Macron said.

The 24-year-old actor never misses any chance to show her inherent quality of kindness, generosity and good spirits. The actor was reportedly returning from Bangkok, and was seen in a white, long-sleeved T-shirt and dark glasses.

Lowered expectations are nothing new for the G-7, but this year's intent seems to be just to avoid diplomatic catastrophe, salvage the possible, and show voters that their leaders have a role on the world stage. "Have a discussion without a bust-up, no repeat of Charlevoix, please".

Wall Street stocks slumped Friday after Trump escalated his trade war with China that is seen as responsible for a global slowdown.

All eyes will be on the dynamic between Trump and Johnson, two figures who relish the unpredictability they have sown.

"We must find new ways to launch real stimulus, stimulate growth", he said, pointing at rock-bottom interest rates which he said should spur countries with budgetary room for manoeuvre to invest in education and job-creating initiatives.

Johnson, who has said since he took office last month that he will take the country out of the bloc on Oct 31 regardless of whether a deal can be reached, later retorted that it would be Tusk himself who would carry the mantle if Britain could not secure a new withdrawal agreement. Macron himself is deeply unpopular at home, and the yellow vest protesters who have plagued him since a year ago have followed him to Biarritz.

Another reason could be the escalation in trade disputes between France and United States, said Bays.

The protesters shouted "Everybody hates the police" and "anti, anti anti-capitalists" as the mood took a darker turn from peaceful protests earlier in the day in an authorised march on the French-Spanish border.
