Trump decides to leave G7 meeting in Quebec early after trade dispute

G7 Summit in Taormina

President Donald Trump arrived late for a gender equality meeting at an global summit, prompting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to kick it off without waiting for "stragglers" to arrive.

President Donald Trump on Saturday doubled down on his call for Russian Federation to be readmitted into the G7 and blamed his predecessor for Russia's aggression in Crimea.

"These are jointly shared principles, although the pitfalls lie in the details", German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a press conference before the release of the communique.

It was a "a long litany of recriminations, somewhat bitter reports that the United States was treated unfairly", said the French official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. I think it would be good for the world.

The Trudeau government has told President Donald Trump he needs to get rid of the punishing US tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum if there is any hope of successfully renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement. "If they retaliate, they're making a mistake", Trump declared.

Trump repeatedly attacked Canada on Twitter in the days leading up to the two-day summit in La Malbaie, Quebec with Trudeau and the leaders of Germany, France, Britain, Japan and Italy. He called many current tariffs on US goods and services "ridiculous".

According to the leaders of the Group of Seven (G7) industrialized nations, the members have agreed to "acknowledge free, fair and mutually beneficial trade" as a "key engine" for growth and jobs as well as to note the importance of fighting protectionism.

"The United States has been taken advantage of for decades and decades", Trump said.

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. "Or like the title of the movie '10 Things I Hate About You'".

Prison Ahead for Senate Aide Who Gave Secrets to NYT Lover
Wolfe had worked under leadership of both parties since 1987, before abruptly departing the senate panel at the end of 2017. President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have made cracking down on leaks and leakers a major priority.

But despite the rows over trade and Russia, Trump rated his relationship with other G7 leaders as 10 out of 10.

Macron and Trudeau both were expected to have formal meetings with Trump later in the day.

Before departing the summit, Trump doubled-down on his assertions that the USA has been subjected to unfair trade duties for many years.

When May first visited the White House, he gripped her hand as they went down a slope.

On Saturday, Trump repeated his desire to have a sunset clause in an updated NAFTA deal, a demand that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has rejected.

He will miss the final session on climate change on Saturday and instead fly directly from Charlevoix to Singapore to meet the leader of North Korea in a much-anticipated summit.

The president has been a disruptive force for the worldwide trading order, insisting other countries move to reduce barriers he said have left the USA with a trade deficit of more than $800 billion.

But, he said, the US could no longer tolerate "brutal" deals, even threatening to tear up the North American Free Trade Agreement if he didn't get his way.

Macron, for example, noted that under European Union rules France now has open borders with Britain and Germany and runs trade deficits with both - far from Trump's vision of "reciprocal" balanced trade.
