Canadian leaders oppose Trump proposal to reinstate Russian Federation in G7

Canadian leaders oppose Trump proposal to reinstate Russian Federation in G7

"Look, I think we have this very special relationship because both of us are probably mavericks of the systems on both sides", Macron told the host Chris Wallace.

"For today, I think it's much more important to convince our American partners to strengthen our format as guarantor of world order, than to look for something new, more challenging, more hard", EU President Donald Tusk said Friday.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said her country "will not change its mind when it comes to the illegal" application of tariffs. "$800 Billion Trade Deficit..."

He's also threatened to tear up the NAFTA agreement with Canada and Mexico.

What did other leaders say?

But Trump struck a more affable tone after a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, saying the French leader was helping work out trade issues.

Macron was reacting to news that the Commander-in-Chief planned to leave the worldwide summit in Quebec earlier than anticipated; skipping out on the group's discussions on climate change and the global environment.

"We've had really a very good relationship, very special", the USA president said of Macron, a day after the two leaders had exchanged terse messages on Twitter. Even before meeting with Trump, the French leader explained what he considered a "special relationship" in an interview on Fox News, Trump's favorite U.S. cable news network. Trump said in a second tweet.

The White House is escalating its verbal attacks against Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of close American ally Canada.

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. Instead of fighting big battles with Trump, his counterparts were angling for a baseline of agreement that might be as low as an acknowledgment of the important role of the G-7.

A German official said that if Trump declines to sign a communique, it won't be the end of the G-7, but it would be a worrisome signal.

President Donald Trump drove the wedge splitting Washington from its Western allies even deeper on Friday (June 8) with a spontaneous call for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the G-7 club.

"It is evident that the American president and the rest of the group continue to disagree on trade, climate change and the Iran nuclear deal", Tusk told reporters ahead of the G7 summit in the Canadian town of La Malbaie, north of Quebec.
