Trump trade fury torpedoes Canada's G-7 summit

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May told MPs that the G7 had been

The G7 Nations, the U.S., France, Great Britain, Canada, Japan, Italy and Germany sent leaders to the summit widely known as a gong show where developed countries decide the fate of the World.

Trump announced in tweets following his early departure from the summit that he would refuse to sign the communiqué as a result of press conference comments by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Mr Trudeau, who had said at the news conference that Canada would retaliate over new U.S. tariffs, did not respond to questions about Mr Trump when the prime minister arrived at a Quebec City hotel on Sunday for meetings with other world leaders.

Donald Trump, in a tirade against countries he said are "robbing" the USA, targeted India once again on import tariffs, as he left the G-7 summit in Canada on bitter terms.

Trudeau announced on Saturday that all G7 members had endorsed the joint communique; however, he noted that the US tariffs are "insulting" and Canada "will not be pushed around". The Chinese tariffs were a response to the United States tariffs on steel and aluminium, which impact India too. "We can't do that", Mr Trump said as he threatened to stop doing trade with countries "who are being unfair" to the US.

Trade adviser Peter Navarro told "Fox News Sunday" that "there is a special place in hell for any leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy" with Trump.

The remarks have enraged U.S. President Donald Trump.

Trudeau, in Quebec City for bilateral meetings with non-G7 leaders after the summit, did not comment as he arrived.

Same result, different day for French Open champion Rafael Nadal
The square-shouldered Austrian tried his best to engage with Nadal rather than let Nadal's avalanche of statistics overwhelm him. Imperious Nadal won a record-extending 11th French Open title with a 6-4 6-3 6-2 victory over young pretender Dominic Thiem .

Germany also said it will stand by the jointly agreed communique.

Trump and Kim are set to meet tomorrow at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa for talks which could see North Korea dismantle its nuclear arsenal in return for economic help and security guarantees.

Noting the USA imposition of tariffs was officially stated as a national security consideration, Freeland said: "We are very clear that Canada does not pose a national security threat to the United States". On Saturday, Trump said again that he might pursue separate trade pacts with Canada and Mexico instead of continuing with a three-country NAFTA deal.

"The European Union will continue to stand up for an worldwide, rules-based, multilateral system", Schinas said.

"We don't want to stand alone in the world", Feinstein said on CNN's State of the Union.

"And that's a very profitable answer, if we have to do it", Trump warned before leaving Canada for Singapore where he is scheduled to hold a much publicised summit with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un Tuesday. "Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

"We would hope that the USA will similarly honour the commitments that they have made", he said, speaking before a parliamentary statement on the summit by Prime Minister Theresa May.

He reiterated his longstanding view that the USA has been taken advantage of in global trade, adding, "We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing, and that ends".
