G7 leaders agree to joint communique: Trudeau

  • Trump jokes with Trudeau 'Justin has agreed to cut all the tariffs'

Shortly after President Trump blasted Canada on Saturday and said the USA would not endorse a joint statement with other world leaders at the Group of Seven summit in Quebec, the almost 4,000 word communique was released.

Trudeau made the remarks when he met with Trump during the G7 Summit in Charlevoix, Quebec, Canada on Friday, according to the official G7 website.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, however, contradicted Trump's statement.

Trump posted his comments from Air Force One as Canada was releasing the official communique that had been endorsed by all seven leaders. His negotiators have demanded the dismantlement of Canada's openly dirigiste system of supply management in agriculture - a complicated nexus of production quotas and import tariffs created to ensure Canadian dairy, egg and poultry farmers receive fair prices for their products.

Trump bantered easily with Trudeau, joking that the neighbouring leader had "agreed to cut all tariffs and all trade barriers".

He warned that retaliation against metal tariffs - 25 per cent on imports of steel and 10 per cent on aluminium from countries including the United Kingdom and the rest of the European Union - would be a mistake after previously calling the EU approach to business "brutal".

"I think we'll have a joint statement", Trump said. John McCain (R-Ariz.) criticized President Donald Trump's foreign policy with a message of allegiance to the United States' allies on behalf of Americans.

"And we charge nothing", Trump said. The result of the WTO ruling is that Canada is not allowed to export much dairy. "Angela and Emmanuel and Justin, I would say the relationshiip is a 10", he said. Great meetings and relationships with the six Country Leaders especially since they know I can not allow them to apply large Tariffs and strong barriers to. But he warned he could cut off USA trade entirely with countries that kept current rules in place, arguing they had taken advantage of previous administrations to take advantage of the United States.

And more: "Looking forward to straightening out unfair Trade Deals with the G-7 countries". Instead, he emphasized the need for other countries to reduce their barriers against the United States, such as Canadian duties on USA dairy. While sending their product into our country tax free. "We have put up with Trade Abuse for many decades - and that is long enough".

Trump drew worldwide criticism last month for leveling a 25% tariff on steel and a 10% duty on aluminum, measures the president says are necessary for national security.

They say "be careful what you wish for" Trump's trade war is living proof you should also be careful who and what you vote for.

Representing a state suffering especially hard from farm failures and suicides, the US Senate minority leader, Chuck Schumer, recently echoed his Republican president in blaming Canada for the debacle. Under such an arrangement, he said, the US would agree to remove all tariffs and barriers if the other countries did as well. The president is flying to Singapore to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

Canada has said it will retaliate with more than $16 billion in tariffs on a range of goods. Expert observers have said that Justin Trudeau's government would abandon the treaty altogether before sacrificing supply management.

President Trump earlier told reporters he had proposed the idea of a tariff-free G7 to other leaders and described his talks with them as "extremely productive".

"#G7Charlevoix, second day: A new step has been taken". We are actually working on cutting tariffs and making it all very fair for both countries.

Trump cited progress on reaching an agreement on the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico, saying the final outcome would lead either to an improved trade deal or separate pacts with the two US neighbours.
