Trump calls for Russian Federation reinstatement as G7 summit enters final day

A Democratic congressman chastised Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday for "sabotaging" trade negotiations as the fallout from this weekend's tense G7 summit continues, lending President Trump some bipartisan support as the war of words between the two countries escalates.

"He did him a favour and he was even willing to sign that socialist communiqué and what did Trudeau do, as soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace?"

"It would be with regret but it would be with absolute certainty and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1 applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applies to us", Trudeau said at a press conference closing the summit.

Ahead of the meeting, Trump already set a hostile tone on his Twitter profile, lashing out against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over fees on dairy products, calling him indignant, in addition to criticising unfair tariff barriers.

The brouhaha evaporated any goodwill that had been fostered between the USA and its allies at the G7. Mr. Trump's National Security Adviser, John Bolton, stands to Mr. Trump's right.

The acrimonious fallout from the G7 began after Mr Trump watched Mr Trudeau's end-of-summit press conference.

"We joined the communique in good faith", Mr Kudlow said.

Donald Trump and Justin Trudeau have been at loggerheads over trade tariffs

Merkel said she first found out about Trump's decision on the flight back from Canada. We are sticking to them and whoever reneges on them is showing incoherence and inconsistency.

A proposal by United States President Donald Trump, that Russian Federation should re-join the annual gathering of the seven advanced economies of the world has caused tensions within the group, with the proposal not having been well received by the remainder of the group's leaders.

Speaking at his closing news conference, Trudeau says the G7 has agreed to an "ambitious" communique - but he did not immediately release a document or provide details of where the exclusive club of wealthy democracies found common ground. "Tariffs will come way down", Trump said.

German Minister of Foreign Affairs Heiko Maas was quoted in the same DW article as saying Trump's late refusal to sign the painstakingly-crafted document was "actually not a real surprise".

Canada and Mexico are also taking action in retaliation. "Well, the in-factual, the non-factual part of this was they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said at the G7.

Macron declared Thursday that no leader lasts forever, saying, "The six countries of the G-7 without the United States, are a bigger market taken together than the American market".
