G7 summit 'commotion' has brought European Union closer together, says German economy minister

G7 summit 'commotion' has brought European Union closer together, says German economy minister

"President Trump is creating chaos".

In a tweet posted Saturday evening, Trump said his decision to rescind support for the statement was based on "false statements" made by Trudeau during a press conference he gave, as well as "the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs" on US companies.

Trump has repeatedly raked up the issue of India imposing high import duty on the iconic Harley-Davidson motorcycles and threatened to increase the import tariff on "thousands and thousands" of Indian motorcycles to the US.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Sunday that President Trump's refusal to endorse a communique from the Group of Seven (G7) leaders was "sobering and a bit depressing".

The United States has imposed 25 per cent tariffs on steel from Canada, Mexico and the European Union, and 10 per cent tariffs on aluminum. "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference".

"And a great gentleman called me from India and he said, we have just reduced the tariff on motorcycles, reduced it down to 50 per cent from 75, and even 100 per cent", he said. "Well, the in-factual, the non-factual part of this was they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said. She also praised Trudeau by saying that she is glad that he is "on the EU's side." .

Trump also took aim at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive automobile industry, throwing G7 efforts to show a united front into disarray.

Mr Trump's state visit in November will coincide with the 6th ASEAN-US Summit and 13th East Asia Summit.

Yet Buthe cautioned: "These kind of things can spiral out of control fairly quickly" as countries hammer each other with escalating retaliatory tariffs. He did him a favor and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique. Canadians, he said, "will not be pushed around". "That will not stand", he noted.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on Sunday called on European nations to stick together following Trump's announcement. "We have seen this with the climate agreement or the Iran deal".

Trump's announcement on Twitter, after leaving the Group of Seven summit in Canada early, that he was backing out of the joint communique torpedoed what appeared to be a fragile consensus on a trade dispute between Washington and its top allies.

"Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal", Trump tweeted as he criticised Canadian tariffs on imports of USA milk. "The United States will continue to promote energy security and economic growth in a manner that improves the health of the world's oceans and environment, while increasing public-private investments in energy infrastructure and technology that advances the ability of countries to produce, transport, and use all available energy sources based on each country's national circumstances".

The summit did not mark the end of the transatlantic partnership between Europe and the U.S., Merkel said.

U.S. President Donald Trump angered his G7 allies last week by slapping them with hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum - a move that prompted Canada and the European Union to threaten duties of their own.

James Brander, an worldwide trade expert at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, said Freeland's comments were meaningful. "So, that is where the insult lies", she told reporters during a news conference in Quebec City.
