Donald Trump deepens G-7 divide with call to readmit Russian Federation

  • Talks with Trump are like sausages, says French President Macron: Report

"I think, on trade, there is.a way to progress all together", he told reporters after his meeting with Trump.

Canada's foreign minister Chrystia Freeland expressed outrage that Trump had invoked a national security justification for his global tariffs, even on imports from close United States allies. "$800 Billion Trade Deficit..."

Macron and Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who also sought friendship with Trump, made it clear they would prefer no consensus to a climbdown on trade.

In an interview Sunday on German public television, Merkel also says European leaders won't be "taken advantage of" on trade.

President Donald Trump's top economic adviser says Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "really kind of stabbed us in the back" when Trudeau said at the end of the Group of Seven summit that Canada wouldn't be pushed around by the USA and its trade tariffs.

"We have a very really good relationship, very special", said Trump who recently hosted Macron for a state visit - the first since the American president came to power.

He promised a "frank and direct discussion" with Trump at an upcoming summit in Canada.

A readout from the French presidency of Macron's call with Trump last week said he had told Trump that the decision to slap tariffs on the exports of USA allies was both "illegal" and a "mistake".

Trump admin: We won't defend Obamacare
O'Connor issued an order on May 16 that grants California and other states that support the ACA official intervenor status. In a blistering statement , the American Psychiatric Association is calling on the administration to reverse its decision.

In footage of the pair, Trump said of Macron: "Arm wrestling, he would be very, very tough".

Ahead of the encounter, the allies made no secret of their anger at Trump's stance, pointed starkly to fears that he is undermining the rules-based world order and driving former U.S. friends into a damaging trade war.

The G-8 was downgraded back to a G-7 following Putin's annexation of Crimea in 2014.

"Whether you like it or not - and it may not be politically correct - but we have a world to run, and in the G-7, which used to be the G-8, they threw Russian Federation out", he said.

Both Moscow and Mr Trump have denied the allegations.

The decision led to a "terrible" call between Macron and Trump that became testy, CNN reported.

Trump was the last G7 leader to arrive and will probably be the first to leave on Saturday when he sets off for his nuclear summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

Trump's and Macron's most recent intense handshake came at the annual G7 summit, where Trump received a frosty welcome in the wake of Trump administration policies that have left the USA increasingly isolated from its closest allies and trading partners.
