'Fool Trade': Trump continues to rip G7 in tweetstorm

  • Trump told Macron EU worse than China on trade

After a pre-summit meeting of G-7 finance ministers, in which Washington was rebuked by the other six members on June 2, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that despite sharp disagreements on trade, the other countries remain "our most important allies". In a series of tweets, the USA president called him "very dishonest and weak" and accused him of making false statements.

Tweeted Collins: "We've had differences w/ Canada over the years, particularly regarding subsidies from the provincial & nat'l governments; nevertheless, Canada remains our close ally, good friend, & one of America's biggest trading partners". "It's kind of insulting".

Trudeau fires back on May 31 over the tariffs being applied on the premise Canada poses a national security threat to the U.S.

The European Union on Monday backed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after US President Donald Trump branded him "dishonest" and "weak" following a Group of Seven summit of leaders.

His comments set the scene for renewed clashes between Mr Trump and other world leaders at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit next month. Hayden added that Trump's actions left him with "a mixture of sadness and, frankly, anger because no country deserves to be treated that way".

A Trudeau spokesman, Cameron Ahmad, said Saturday night that Trudeau "said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public and in private conversations" with Mr. Trump.

In an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union," Kudlow argued that Trudeau's critique amounted to a betrayal of the G7, as well as the U.S.

On trade, said she had been "very clear" that United States tariffs on European steel and aluminium imports were damaging and dialogue was needed to ensure the dispute did not escalate into a full-blown trade war.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", he said.


"This I've never seen before".

Mulroney, who has a personal relationship with Trump and has been quietly advising the prime minister on how to deal with the mercurial USA president, likened Trump's weekend tirade to "serious summer squalls".

"In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters", German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said when asked about Mr Trump's U-turn, adding it would take much longer to rebuild lost trust. The president also repeated claims that Canada overtaxes American dairy products under its supply management system and complained about Canadian automobiles flooding the US market.

Trump and his surrogates have trumpeted the myth that we have a trade deficit with Canada.

"That's not very nice", Francis said, "to go out and make a hostile statement after everybody has agreed to a communique".

Trump and his deputies lashed out at Trudeau for telling a news conference at the end of the G7 conference that Canada would not be pushed around on tariffs - a point the Canadian prime minister had made several times before.

"Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal", he tweeted.

The other countries at the G-7 summit, however, rallied to Mr. Trudeau's support.
