Trump to leave G7 summit early; fires back at Trudeau

He tweeted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "is being so indignant" and slammed both Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron for their tariffs on the U.S.

So he could feel isolated Friday and Saturday at the hotel in Charlevoix.

Trump, who has vowed to protect USA industry and workers from what he describes as unfair global competition as part of an "America First" agenda, is due to hold bilateral meetings with Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron during the summit, Kudlow said.

"Because these six represent values, represent an economic market, and more than anything, represent a real force at the worldwide level today".

Trump signaled a tough tone on Twitter Thursday, saying: "Getting ready to go to the G-7 in Canada to fight for our country on Trade (we have the worst trade deals ever made)".

The tone in the immediate run-up to the meetings at La Malbaie showed no sign of compromise between a USA president determined to disrupt the status quo to force more favourable terms for the United States, and six U.S. allies resolved to stop him.

"[It was a joke] to the degree one can ever take what is said as a joke", the unnamed source said, "The impact on Canada and ultimately on workers in the U.S. won't be a laughing matter". "We are going to defend our industries and our workers", he said.

Canada countered by announcing it would slap an estimated $16.6 billion in duties on some steel and aluminum products and other goods from the USA, including maple syrup, beer kegs, whisky and toilet paper.

Joshua Bolten, president and CEO of Business Roundtable, said the drawdown was a result of Trump's belligerent trade policy. "I believe it can be worked out", top White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told reporters on Wednesday.

Arsenal sign Swiss captain Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus
Lichtsteiner won seven Serie A titles at Juventus while he also made over 100 appearances for Lazio during three years in Rome. Arsenal head coach Unai Emery believes new signing Stephan Lichtsteiner will improve the club both on and off the pitch.

Quarrelling with Trump over his protectionist tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, decision to exit the Iran nuclear accord and retreat from global efforts to combat climate change, erstwhile American allies are turning the summit into something of an intervention, challenging the USA president in the most direct terms to date.

While the Trump administration has characterized their rift as a family quarrel, his fellow leaders appear to be itching for a fight with a United States president - the G7's traditional patriarch - during the two-day summit in the Canadian countryside.

Trump, who met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Washington before the summit, may be more preoccupied with next week's historic nuclear summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

While it is unlikely that leaders will be openly hostile to Trump, they may be a little more direct in their criticism of the United States.

European Union and Canadian leaders also appeared ready to unite against Trump at the upcoming G7 summit. Trump is set to hold a series of group and one-on-one meetings, including with Trudeau and Macron. The member countries are Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Germany, the United States and Britain.

Robert Bothwell, a professor at the University of Toronto, said Trump's actions appear meant to break Canada at the negotiating table.
