Merkel dubs Trump's G7 rejection as 'sobering, depressing'

Отказ Дональда Трампа подписать итоговый документ G7 шокировал участников саммита

The details of the conversation, which Axios previously reported, come amid fears of a looming trade war over the Trump administration's move to impose steep tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada and Mexico.

Nevertheless, she vowed to continue to work on the often-fractious relationship with Trump's White House.

A photo showing Angela Merkel and the rest of the world leaders towering over US President Donald Trump in an improm7 ptu meeting held in between bilateral talks in Quebec, Canada has blown up online, cropping into memes with hilarious and politically suggestive captions. But the summit host, Trudeau, whose nation was among those singled out by Trump, pushed back and said he would not hesitate to retaliate against his neighbor to the south.

Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron had what was described by a French official as a "very cordial" discussion about trade and North Korea. "You should ask Prime Minister Abe".

"The issue of tariffs can not be looked at in isolation, we must also think about issues such as subsidies", she said.

That wrestling cry would have been an apt announcement at the G-7 summit, what with the U.S. and other heads of state at each other's throats using the thrust and parry of rude remarks and social media to pummel each other.

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.

On Russia's possible return to the G7, Merkel said she could imagine it in the future but that the conditions had to be right for that.

Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market! Kudlow admitted to CNN on Sunday that Trump had "compromised on the communique" but changed his mind later, seeing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's appear vindicated after the summit. "They don't take our farm products", Trump complained at the news conference Tuesday.

Soon afterwards, Trump rejected in a series of angry tweets from Air Force One the text of a G7 consensus statement - traditionally a paean to shared Western values and objectives under American leadership.
