US signs G-7 declaration calling for reduction of tariffs after tense summit with allies

The United States and Canada have swung sharply towards a diplomatic and trade crisis as top White House advisers lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a day after US President Donald Trump called him "very dishonest and weak".

Trudeau said he had reiterated to Mr. Trump, who left the G7 meeting before it ended, that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the U.S.

President Trump went on with his advisers and attacked Prime minister Justin Trudeau by using words like "betrayal" and "stab".

While President Donald Trump's split with the G7 conference was the main focus of the Quebec summit over the weekend, another controversy was brewing in the shadows.

Minutes after the publication on Saturday of the joint communique that was approved by all the leaders in the G7 bloc - US, France, Germany, Japan, Britain, Italy and Canada - Trump announced on Twitter that he was retracting his support.

In view of threatened U.S. tariffs on vehicle imports, which would particularly affect Germany, Grenell said that he was a "big auto fan" and knew how important the industry was.

Ries says it could take a while for Canadian consumers to suffer.

She also said the European Union would "act" against the USA trade measures.

Trudeau reiterated it is unacceptable to include Canada in 232 national security tariffs, Xinhua reported.

The summit comes amid a fractured moment for US alliances after the tariffs the USA imposed last week on Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

"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.

Mr. Trudeau's office responded to Mr. Trump's tweets accusing the Canadian leader of "false statements" on Saturday, saying that the Prime Minister said nothing during the G7 summit that he had not said previously. I'll tell you this to my friends in Canada that was one of the worst political miscalculations of a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history. "So he holds a press conference - the president is barely out of there on the plane to North Korea, and he starts insulting us, he starts talking about the U.S.is insulting Canada", Kudlow said.

He also asked why he should allow countries to amass "Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our Farmers, Workers & Taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay?" That's what week, dishonest Justin Trudeau did.

Noting the president said last week the most important part about his upcoming meeting with Kim Jong-un os "attitude", Heyman argued Trump "has had a really bad attitude with his partners and his allies".
