Trump refuses to endorse G7 statement after labeling Trudeau 'weak, dishonest'

France bashes ‘incoherent’ Trump for withdrawing from G-7 trade agreement. Here’s what they said

He arrived to the meeting late and left early, holding a solo news conference Saturday morning where he gave the trade ultimatum and said the size of the USA economy means other nations can't win a trade war.

President Trump on Saturday slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, saying he was "very dishonest and weak", and claimed the world leader made "false statements" following the G-7 economic summit.

Trump said he pushed for the elimination of trade barriers, including subsidies and tariffs, at the G-7 meeting.

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".

Responding to Trump, Trudeau's spokesperson Cameron Ahmad said: "We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the G7 summit".

Trump insisted USA allies would yield to his demands of a trade rebalance, warning that the USA would crush any opposition in a potential trade war.

"We are actually working on cutting tariffs in making it all very fair for both countries and we've made a lot of progress today".

"We can't have an example where we're paying, the United States is paying, 270% - just can't have it - and when they send things into us you don't have that", Trump said at the press conference.

Ending trade with other nations under the current system, Trump said, would be "a very profitable answer if I have to do it".

"We're either going to have NAFTA in a better negotiated form or we're going to have two deals", the USA president said.

Just hours ago, President Donald Trump was tweeting about the "great meetings and relationships with the six Country Leaders".

Trump's hyperbolic praise for a summit that was evidently discordant shows his refusal to allow any venture in which he is involved to be portrayed as anything other than a roaring success.

He also said that Russian Federation should be attending the summit, an idea that was unlikely to gain much traction at the G7 gathering, which groups Canada, the United States, Japan, Britain, Italy, France and Germany.

Trump's comments on agriculture, his imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs, as well as broader disagreements on trade, climate change and the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement, are setting the stage for some tense G7 talks.

As he prepared to travel to Canada, he ramped up his blast of Canada on Twitter this morning over what he says are unfair trade practices. "While sending their product into our country tax free".

According to CNN, Trudeau asked Trump how he justified imposing tariffs as a national security issue during a May 25 phone call.

At this second G-7 gathering of Trump's presidency, the question of whether the USA leader would follow through on campaign boasts about punishing global freeloaders has been largely answered.

In retrospect, the consensus on ground had appeared shaky from the outset, and even as Trump flew out it was clear that the summit had failed to heal the rift on trade. Several other leaders have threatened retaliatory tariffs. "And they understand it's going to happen", Trump said.

Yet, his threat to not sign the Communique also has the potential to upend, not only his gains with Trudeau and Canada, but a lot of the goodwill gained by the conference. At one point, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was seen having a brief, intense one-sided conversation with a stony-faced Trump on Friday.

The reminder from the Kremlin will do nothing to allay the worries of those who suspect that Moscow colluded with the Trump campaign to swing the 2016 presidential election in his favor.
