Trump demands end to 'unfair' trade after G7 summit

Trump falsely accuses Canada of burning down White House in War of 1812 (report)

President of the European Council Donald Tusk, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, US President Donald Trump, Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, French President Emmanuel Macron, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May and President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker pose for a family photo during the Summit of the Heads of State and of Government of the G7 plus the European Union, on 26 May 2017 in Taormina, Sicily.

One source with knowledge of the matter said Italy wanted to "create as much space as possible to continue the dialogue with the United States", noting that new Italian Prime Minister Guiseppe Conte, a political novice, would be treading carefully in Canada because he "needs to see the dynamics of the group". I mean, we have India, where some of the tariffs are 100 percent.

"We need the President to be able to distinguish between our allies and adversaries, and to treat each accordingly", he said in a statement. "And it's going to stop".

The US president will come face-to-face at the gathering with world leaders whose views do not chime with his on a range of issues from trade to the environment as well as Iran and the construction of a new US embassy in Jerusalem.

"We will also obviously have some very robust discussions on trade", Trudeau said.

He denied that the summit had been contentious, a remark that contradicted what one G7 official described as an "extraordinary" exchange on Friday.

Trump will leave the gathering at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday and put Everett Eissenstat, his deputy assistant for worldwide economic affairs, in charge for the remaining sessions, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement on Thursday.

"These are jointly shared principles, although the pitfalls lie in the details", she said in a press conference, adding that she expected a joint G7 statement on trade would be issued at the end of the summit.

The Taycan "will offer reproducible performance and a top speed which can be maintained for long periods", he said. Porsche says a four minute charge will be good enough to deliver approximately 100 km (62 miles) of range.


U.S. President Donald Trump railed against trade practices he called unfair to the United States at a Group of Seven nations summit where leaders agreed on Saturday to fight protectionism and reform the World Trade Organization.

May signaled that Britain wanted the European Union to use restraint in its retaliation to the USA tariffs and said she would continue to promote the benefits of free trade.

Trump is set to hold the first meeting between a sitting US president and North Korean leader on June 12.

Canada and the European Union have denounced the US tariffs as illegal and unjustified and Ottawa has proposed levies on a range of USA goods next month while the European Union has pledged its own retaliatory measures.

Mr Altmaier also underlined the importance of European unity on free trade and economic interests, especially since domestic debate was continuing in the USA about punitive sanctions imposed by Mr Trump on G7 allies. Canada and Mexico, the other members of the 1994 pact, have been frustrated by the slow pace of talks to renegotiate NAFTA.

Throughout the escalation in rhetoric, Trudeau slammed Trump's tariffs in several media appearances, calling the decision "totally unacceptable" and "insulting".

Trump left before the end of the summit on Saturday. In fact, Russian Federation was expelled from what was then the G-8 after it invaded and annexed Crimea and for its support for pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine. Merkel said on Saturday there must first be progress on a Ukraine peace plan before there is any talk about readmitting Moscow. "I think President Trump knows that".

Both Moscow and Mr Trump have denied any such activity.
