G7 Summit far from harmonious

Those tensions boiled over during the G7 summit in Canada on Saturday, with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and European leaders reaffirming plans to institute retaliatory measures and Trump lashing out in response by refusing to endorse the group of industrialized nations' communique.

"Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" the US president tweeted.

U.S. President Donald Trump issued a volley of tweets on Monday venting anger on some of Washington's closest North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over the United State's trade deficit, following a divisive G7 meeting in Canada.

Trump's apparent threat to end US trade deals with top allies came as he feuded with French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other leaders over the trade war he instigated late last month. Justin Trudeau wears fake eyebrows and takes really good care of us most of the time. But, Trump's defenders today say that he is simply standing up for America.

Donald Trump has taken a fresh swipe at key allies after a war of words broke out following the USA president's decision not to endorse the conclusions of a G7 summit.

Mr Trump left off last night with a series of tweets from Air Force One en route to Singapore for his nuclear summit Tuesday with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", he wrote in one tweet that then went on to accuse Canada of imposing unfair taxes on USA dairy products.

Trump's renewed comments on trade come amid a growing dispute between Washington and its top allies.

Trump imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on imported aluminum from the European Union on June 1, a move he said was meant to protect USA national security.

"He was polarizing", Kudlow said during a Sunday morning appearance on CNN's "State of the Union".

"They should have said to him, 'God speed, you are negotiating with the insane nuclear tyrant in North Korea, and we are behind you, '" Kudlow said.

Trump announced yesterday that he would be renouncing support of the joint communique made at the end of the summit, which was a declaration of shared values and goals by the seven countries - the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan - that attended.

"Canada is very clear", Freeland said.

Kudlow, the conservative economist who directs the National Economic Council, was upset with Trudeau's comments at a press conference after the contentious Group of 7 summit in Quebec.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, said it's one thing for Mr. Trump to get angry, but quite another to ditch the agreement.
