Trump's feud with Justin Trudeau looks like a stunt

US President Donald Trump accuses India of charging 100 per cent tariff on some imports

The joint communique is a statement of broad goals and principles endorsed by the G7 leaders, and Trump's refusal means that this will be the first year that the annual summit fails to issue one.

Senior government officials are quietly drawing up a list of ways for Canada to retaliate against the United States if it's hit with even more tariffs by its closest ally.

President Donald Trump has taken a swipe at India along with the world's other top economies and accused New Delhi of charging 100 per cent tariff on some of the US' goods, as he threatened to cut trade ties with countries who are robbing America.

- En route to Singapore, Trump launches a ferocious attack against Trudeau on Twitter, calling his behaviour during G7 meetings "meek and mild" and accusing him of making "false statements" at his press conference. Trump said that he withdrew the US from the G-7's joint statement because of that slight.

The back-and-forth may represent mostly political posturing by the two leaders, but there could be very real economic consequences. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) said on CBS' "Face The Nation" that "right now, the President is actually driving our allies away from us as we need them even more, while welcoming in the Russians".

"This bilateral was among the most productive we've ever had and we have had some productive ones", the first source said.

He also announced he was backing out of a joint communique on trade between the United States and its main allies.

Of the 32 states that count Canada as their biggest export destination, 20 voted for Trump in the 2016 election. -Canada ties but not talking about Canada's tariffs on dairy, which he says are "killing" American agriculture.

Has Linda Pizzuti Henry hinted Nabil Fekir to Liverpool is close?
Consequently, the Reds were hoping to negotiate a lower fee which prompted Lyon to pull the plug on any potential deal. Now we must wait and see if Liverpool and Klopp go back in for a player they have coveted so much.

The president seems to think raising USA tariffs will accomplish that end.

Describing the USA tariffs on European steel and aluminium as "unjustified", she left no doubt that EU nations would impose counter-measures on United States goods in response but cautioned against tit-for-tat retaliation which might lead to a trade war.

U.S. president Donald Trump took more swipes at Canada and its prime minister over trade issues as he settled in for a multi-day summit with North Korea in Singapore, contending that "fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal". Larry Kudlow, Trump's chief economic adviser, told CNN that Trudeau's press conference addressing Trump's actions was "a betrayal". And what did Trudeau do as soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace?

Mr. Trump called Trudeau "dishonest & weak" after Trudeau said at a news conference that Canada would retaliate for new US tariffs.

Trade adviser Peter Navarro told "Fox News Sunday" that "there is a special place in hell for any leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy" with Trump. Before Trudeau can respond, Trump jumps in, saying, "No, he's happy".

Following the remarks by Kudlow and Navarro, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland is far less confrontational in an effort, perhaps, to dial things down - "In terms of the approach that governments choose to take, Canada does not believe that ad-hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries".

June 9 - Trump extols his relationship with Trudeau and Canada as a 10 out of 10, blasting reports of a rift as "fake news".

Unbowed, Mr Trump tweeted anew on Monday morning from Singapore: "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".
