Trump, G6 leaders exchange barbs

Kudlow Calls G-7 Trade Tensions a 'Family Quarrel&apos

"Now, I love our country".

Trudeau responded, "I'd say NAFTA is in good shape", and they both cracked up.

However, German Chancellor Angela Merkel did not get a response when she asked Trump for a handshake at the White House.

"You know, whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run".

So at the G7 in Charlevoix, Quebec on Friday, some were speculating whether when he shook Trump's hand with a grip so firm the U.S leader was left with white marks, he was showing how he really felt. "The six countries of the G7 without the United States, are a bigger market taken together than the American market".

Canada has flatly rejected welcoming Russian Federation back to the G7 fold, pointing to its annexation of Crimea.

In a bid to rebuild America's industry, Trump has imposed hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, including those from key G7 allies like Canada, Japan and the European Union. "We have a great relations", he continued, talking about Merkel, Macron and Trudeau by first name. "We have to change it, and they understand it's going to happen", Trump said. And we've made a lot of progress today. "We'll make a better deal".

As he headed to the summit of G7 nations - the United States, Canada, Japan, Britain, Italy, Germany and France - the USA president said: "Russia should be in the meeting".

Mr Trump said on Friday that the United States and Canada were working on cutting tariffs "and making it all very fair for both countries".

He said he suggested cutting all of the tariffs, duties and even government subsidies among the G7 countries, and said other leaders would "go back to the drawing board and check it out".

While Infinity War , the third movie in the Avengers franchise , shocked fans, Hemsworth believes the next one will outdo it. T'Challa is represented in a dedicated capsule with the Black Panther Sk8-Hi, inspired by the character's vibranium suit.

Trump, who angered his G7 partners last week with tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico as part of his "America First" agenda, vowed to hold firm until USA goods had "fair" access to markets.

"Let's say Canada, where we have tremendous tariffs". He didn't specify what products he could seek to target.

After some last-minute lobbying efforts by the Canadian delegation, all G7 leaders are expected to sign on to a joint communiqué when the summit ends on Saturday, sources told CBC News.

Though the US appears increasingly isolated from its allies, Trump on Saturday insisted that his relationships with other leaders remains "great".

In an "extraordinary" exchange between the leaders on Friday, Mr. Trump repeated a list of grievances about US trade, mainly with the European Union and Canada, a French presidency official told reporters.

US President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron hold a meeting on the sidelines of the G7 Summit in La Malbaie, Quebec.

Macron told reporters that while Trump may not mind USA isolation, "neither do we mind signing a six country agreement if need be".

This is how British Prime Minister Theresa May described Trump's latest tariffs on steel and aluminum coming out of Europe.

Meanwhile, average Canadians have overpaid for decades to support price dairy price fixing.
