France, Germany slam Trump's G7 statement U-turn

Лидеры Большой семерки на саммите в Квебеке выступили против возвращения РФ в G8- СМИ

Not to be outdone, Trump responded on Twitter saying that both Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "are charging the USA massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

"No, he's happy", Trump said.

The annual G-7 summit appeared to have weathered tensions over President Donald Trump's threats of a trade war.

At the summit, of which the build-up to had been dominated by Mr Trump's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, the world leaders had agreed a statement that read: "We acknowledge that free, fair and mutually beneficial trade and investment, while creating reciprocal benefits, are key engines for growth and job creation". In the photo, Macron is looking directly at the president and gesturing.

He will not be attending the second day, as he is all set to leave for Singapore where is scheduled to meet North Korea's Kim Jong-un on June 12. In one photo, Xi and Russia's Vladimir Putin, with smiles on their faces, lead other world leaders to stride into a dining hall. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker offered to visit Washington for an assessment of EU-US trade to help resolve the dispute, an official said.

Then you carry your eyes toward the border of the picture and spot French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Senior Trump aides escalated the rhetoric on Sunday morning's news shows, with chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow calling Trudeau's remarks "a betrayal" on CNN's "State of the Union" and top trade adviser Peter Navarro saying on "Fox News Sunday" that "there's a special place in hell" for the Canadian leader.

Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, said that Trump's determination to bait his allies over trade and diplomatic engagements "would only play into the hands of those who seek a new post-West order where liberal democracy and fundamental freedoms would cease to exist".

"We won't let ourselves be ripped off again and again", she said, referring to the new American tariffs on imported steel and aluminum. "I think the bilateral meeting that's scheduled between the two is a really good thing and I think they'll walk through a lot of these issues".

The statement added "France and Europe maintain their support" for the G7 conclusions.

"One risk is that others will take advantage of this apparent vacuum in American leadership and the lack of trans-Atlantic consensus and act in ways that will harm trans-Atlantic interests, whether it's Russian Federation in the Eurasia. or China in Asia", said Ian Lesser, of the German Marshall Fund.

"The situation isn't very nice", Merkel said.

Trump was running about 45 minutes behind schedule when Air Force One landed in Quebec. Trump will skip sessions on climate change and the environment.

"I would recommend - it's up to them".

Leaders have struggled to find ways of getting through to Trump and persuading him to budge from his pre-established positions.
