"Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" the USA president tweeted.
President Donald Trump said Saturday at the Group of Seven summit in Quebec, Canada, that the United States would "stop trading" with some of its closest allies unless they change what he believes to be unfair trade policies.
Trump also renewed attacks on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who had hosted the G7 meeting in Quebec.
Mr. Trump addressed the subject of worldwide trade during an impromptu news conference at the summit on Saturday, saying that he does not want to see other countries take advantage of the USA over trade. We will stand by them and anyone who would depart from them, once their back was turned, shows their incoherence and inconsistency. "Kim must not see American weakness".
Over the course of the summit, the President pushed the narrative that the U.S.is a victim of a trade imbalance, though European leaders rejected these claims. "Our tariffs are in response to his of 270 per cent on dairy!"
"We have to have deals that are fair", Trump said. President Trump is sitting alone on one side of a table. "But he also pledged to retaliate against the United States tariffs on steel and aluminum products in defense of Canadian workers".
