France warns Trump over 'fits of anger' after G7 statement u-turn

Take the WND Poll! The two countries' trade conflict has been ratcheting up for weeks, but twice recently - before and after the G-7 meeting - Trudeau repeated a certain comment, saying Canada was "polite" but "will not be pushed around".

Amid growing speculation that the G7 leaders would not be able to agree on a post-summit communique, Trudeau managed to issue a statement signed by all the participating leaders.

At the moment, the European Union targets USA -built cars with a 10-percent tariff, while the United States distinguishes between vans or pickup trucks and other cars.

The United States and Canada have swung sharply towards a diplomatic and trade crisis as top White House advisers lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a day after US President Donald Trump called him "very dishonest and weak".

The joint statement between the leaders of the U.S., France, Germany, the U.K., Japan, Italy, and Canada comes after President Trump refused to back down from his decision to impose global tariffs on goods, including steel and aluminum imports.

Asked about the president's Twitter blasts, Trudeau says June 7 that he won't sink to that level- "I've been firm, I've been clear, but I don't think descending into insults is right for the way Canada engages with the world".

In his interview Sunday, Kudlow accused Trudeau of making his comments for "domestic political consumption" and doing "a great disservice to the whole G7". This will be the first time a sitting U-S president meets with a North Korean leader.

Trump responded to the Canadian prime minster's news conference by tweeting that because of Trudeau's statement, he would not sign the communique that the G-7 nations had drafted at the summit.

Former prime minister Stephen Harper also shared his perspective on the trade spat between Canada and the U.S. Harper said that although he could understand the United States wanting better trade relations with countries like China and Mexico, he can't "understand the obsession with trade relations with Canada".

To be sure, Navarro was merely following in the steps of his leader when cursing out Trudeau.

Mr Trump also said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive auto industry, throwing the G7's efforts to show a united front into disarray.

CNN's Jake Tapper interjected: "So this was about North Korea?" "They should let Russian Federation come back in because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table".

In a tweet posted Saturday evening, Trump said his decision 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 USA companies.

Ahmad added: 'The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the president'.

While the reason for the apparent sliding down of the brow could have been anything from a lighting issue, or an unruly camera angle, but as Trudeau speaks, it seems like his dark eyebrow has slipped down nearly to his eyes.
