Trump Economic Adviser Ties G-7 Pullout to North Korea Meeting

Donald Trump withdraws endorsement of G7 joint statement, slams Trudeau

Trump said in another tweet that Trudeau was "meek and mild" during their private meeting, only to hold a news conference calling the us tariffs "insulting". "Kim must not see American weakness".

Before departing the conference, Trump warned countries not to retaliate against USA tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

In her first interview since the contentious two-day G7 summit in Canada, Merkel told German broadcaster ARD that Trump's "withdrawal via Twitter is of course sobering and a little depressing".

Officials from European delegations quickly leaked copies of the joint statement, and it was published online moments before Mr Trump tweeted. "He's a pathetic little man-child".

At issue are US tariffs against Canada and Trudeau's effort to retaliate against its neighbor - as well as Trudeau's comment to reporters that all seven leaders had come together to sign a joint declaration after the G-7 meeting. "I have made it clear to the president that [imposing retaliatory tariffs] is not something we relish doing, but it's something that we absolutely will do".

In response to Mr Trump's decision to withhold United States support for the summit conclusions, a senior UK government source said: "We stand by the commitments made in the G7 communique". He did him a favor and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique. That was a part of Trudeau's mistake. "That will not stand". The Canadian leader pulled a "sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption", Kudlow said, that amounted to "a betrayal". Trudeau made an error.

But Kudlow probably didn't help the message he was sending to the Canadian leader by once referring to him as "Pierre Trudeau".

But the criticism left a former Canadian prime minister, Stephen Harper, stumped.

According to reliable sources, Kaala , which was initially banned in Karnataka, will now release in almost 130 screens in the state.

"How many times has President Trump said, if you hit me, I am going to hit you back?" From promoting democracy and to fighting terrorism, "we're on the same page". There will be no world hegemony if we know how to organize ourselves.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he said. Trump as a result did not sign onto the joint statement concluding the meeting.

"In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 twitter characters", Maas remarked, a reference to Trump's tweet rejecting the joint communiqué.

And he claimed, wrongly, that Canada and the US had been close to a NAFTA deal before Trudeau's comment. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" Trump has said that Russian Federation should have been readmitted to the negotiations. Mr Trump - who has a history of hair-trigger responses to slights - landed in Singapore on Sunday for the Tuesday (June 12) summit meeting with Mr Kim.

Trump insisted relationships with allies were a "10" just before he left the summit.

Trudeau says five of the G7 countries agreed to a plastics charter to further protect the environment and oceans.

The rift over Russian Federation threatened to overshadow the more pressing concern of a brewing trade war between the U.S. and its key allies of the past decades.

The director of the National Economic Council was appearing on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday when he suggested Trudeau should "apologize in the name of the Western allies".
