Macron says 'things moving forward' after G7 trade spat

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has closed the G7 summit by stating he "won't be pushed around" by Donald Trump on trade.

After Trudeau said he was "happy to announce that we have released a joint communique by all seven countries" indicating that the U.S. had signed on, Trump announced that the United States would reverse its decision and not sign on to the statement after all.

One U.S. official told Breitbart News Economics and Finance Editor John Carney that world leaders were mistaken if they believed President Trump would soften his position on tariffs.

Trump accused Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of making "false statements", and threatened new automobile tariffs in a series of tweets he posted after leaving the talks in Charlevoix, Quebec.

He missed Trudeau's introductory statement and entered the room while Gender Equality Advisory Council co-chair Isabelle Hudon was speaking.

However, Canadian PM's office responded to the "tweeting attack" in a statement saying that Justin Trudeau did nothing to provoke the backlash from Donald Trump.

The U.S. president will leave the summit Saturday morning, the White House said, just before meetings begin on climate change, energy policy and oceans.

After departing from the Quebec summit for Singapore, Trump tweeted that Trudeau's remarks at a news conference, where he said Canada would not be pushed around, "were very dishonest and weak". "Our tariffs are in response to his of 270 per cent on dairy!"

As The Guardian reports, the Comminique is actually "a joint statement [among all attending leaders] vowing to fight back against protectionism and pledging to follow established trade rules, in spite of clear differences between the USA and their counterparts in the global group". Trump had reportedly pushed back on language surrounding climate change, and the final text of the joint statement made clear that the USA did not agree with language surrounding the issue.

Trump said he doesn't blame foreign leaders for the state of the trading relationship, instead laying blame on past USA presidents who have entered into deals that, he asserts, have enriched allies while hollowing out American industry.

"His message from Quebec to Singapore is that he is going to meld the industrial democracies to his will - and bring back Russian Federation", said Steve Bannon, Trump's former campaign and White House adviser.

"We have a tremendous trade imbalance", Trump said during Saturday's press conference.

"You say the U.S. President doesn't care at all".

Trump was aboard Air Force One heading to an historic summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un when he issued a pair of tweets Saturday criticizing the G-7 host and stepping back from the generally positive tone that had ended the two-day meeting.

"Tariffs are going to come way down because we people can not continue to do that".

Halting all trade with countries that don't drop tariffs is a "very profitable answer", Trump said.

Meanwhile, the European Union - the world's largest trading bloc - announced last week it would impose retaliatory tariffs on the us beginning in July, over Washington's duties on steel and aluminum imports from Europe.

According to the leaders of the Group of Seven (G7) industrialized nations, the members have agreed to "acknowledge free, fair and mutually beneficial trade" as a "key engine" for growth and jobs as well as to note the importance of fighting protectionism.

"No tariffs, no barriers, that's the way it should be and no subsidies".
