Trump calls for Russian Federation to be readmitted to G8, European Union rejects it

"I've been firm, I've been clear, but I don't think descending into insults is right for the way Canada engages with the world", the prime minister said. "It could be with Canada, with Mexico, one-on-one", the president added.

President Donald Trump infuriated the United States' closest allies last month by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Finance Minister Bill Morneau said that message was communicated clearly to Trump during his meetings at the G7 summit with fellow leaders, and in his face-to-face talk with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"And so began a long litany of recriminations, somewhat bitter reports that the United States was treated unfairly, that the trading system was totally unfavorable to the United States, the American economy, American workers, the middle class", the official said. "When we can underscore this, and we see that there's a lot of pressure within the USA, perhaps he will revise his position".

Trump repeated the call on Saturday, saying "we're looking for peace in the world".

"Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the USA massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers", Trump said Thursday on Twitter.

As the two left, a reporter asked if Trudeau was disappointed that Trump was leaving early (Trump will be leaving the G7 early to prepare for his upcoming summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un) but before Trudeau could respond, Trump jumped in.

Speaking at a news conference on Saturday morning, Trump demanded that G-7 countries drastically reduce trade barriers for the US or risk losing access to the world's largest economy.

He then held on to Trump, and pulled his hand towards him, forcing the U.S President, who is 30 years his senior, to break it off.

California in spotlight as United States voters cast ballots in primaries
California is key to Democrats' hopes of gaining a majority in the 435-seat House, which would require flipping 23 seats. Mike Levin is running to represent the Democrats in Southern California's 49th Congressional district.

Trump's press conference Saturday marked his first solo press conference since February 16, 2017.

"It has been discussed - some people like the idea of bringing Russian Federation back in", Trump told reporters in Quebec, Canada during the annual G7 summit.

"We're not going to be able to do that work under the threat of tariffs".

G7 summit 2018 in pictures: World leaders unite in Canada Sat, June 9, 2018 The G7 Summit runs from 8 to 9 June in Charlevoix, Canada.

Other outstanding issues apparently remain, such as Chapter 19, which sets out dispute settlement panels for anti-dumping and countervailing duties that Canada and Mexico want kept in the deal but that the USA wants kept out.

Trump says they will either have a better agreement on NAFTA or two deals involving separate trade deals with Canada and Mexico.

This was Macron after a phone call with Trump that White House aides described as "terrible".

"In other words, let's say Canada, where ... the United States pays tremendous tariffs on dairy as an example - 270% - nobody knows that ... we don't want to pay anything".

Trudeau has made the issue of gender equality a priority for the gathering. A Defense Department investigation concluded that "unfair trade practices" have "intentionally eroded" the country's innovation and manufacturing industry, posing a risk to the United States' national security.
