Democrats, McCain criticize Trump for G7 comments

Telegraph notes the two world leaders said "all of the right things" during their meeting, "claiming that progress was possible on the contentious issue of USA trade tariffs". "To have a great military, you need a great balance sheet", he said. "That would be a leap into a very different world", declared one senior European official - with leaders pointing to the many regulations and non-tariff barriers that limit free trade. You want no barriers.

In a flurry of tweets from Air Force One, en route to Singapore for a historic nuclear summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, Trump accused the summit host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of being "very dishonest". Trump has said that Russian Federation should have been readmitted to the negotiations.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable, but we will not be pushed around", Trudeau told reporters. "And no subsidies. I even said, "no tariffs"!"

Still, a French official said on Friday the United States and European Union would establish a dialogue on trade within the next two weeks, signalling a modest step forward for the bitterly divided allies of the G7.

He said that other countries were imposing "massive tariffs" on the US.

"I don't blame other leaders for that". According to the Telegraph, it appears as if Emmanuel Macron chose to give Trump a taste of his own medicine in what is being described as a bit of an awkward encounter between the two.

"They understand that. They know it. After many decades, fair and reciprocal Trade will happen!"

Trump said the final outcome would lead either to a better agreement on NAFTA or separate trade deals with both Canada and Mexico. "While sending their product into our country tax free", he said.

He later said, "It's going to stop, or we'll stop trading with them".

The comments come in the midst of Trump's ongoing trade war with allied nations.

Mr. Macron, feuding with Mr. Trump over US steel and aluminum tariffs on the European Union, tweeted that he and the other six leaders were prepared to turn their backs on Mr. Trump at the summit. To United States, frankly, it would be a good thing but I'm not looking to do that. "We work with President Trump".

Members include the U.S., Canada, Japan and four European nations (Britain, France, Italy and Germany).

Trump said he discussed the idea of eliminating tariffs with his G7 counterparts.

The Charlevoix G7 summit was marked by sharp disagreements over Mr Trump's decision to impose higher import taxes on aluminium and steel imports. "It's going to change". We're like the piggy bank that everybody is robbing. We have a tremendous trade imbalance. The U.S. president delivered a rambling statement before taking questions from journalists.

"The constant victim-talk doesn't help anyone", he continued.

Earlier this week, Tennessee Sen.

Pierre Lampron, the president of Dairy Farmers of Canada, shot back at Trump's claims about his industry.

"American jobs are on the line because of his actions and because of his administration", Trudeau said at a news conference Thursday.
