'Fair trade now fool trade', Trump vents anger on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, Trudeau

Investors have called on the G7 to phase out coal generation all together

Investors have called on the G7 to phase out coal generation all together

The group managed a common statement in which they agreed to disagree on some issues, only to have Trump disavow the document in a tweet after leaving the meeting.

Trudeau fires back on May 31 over the tariffs being applied on the premise Canada poses a national security threat to the U.S. - "Let's be clear: These tariffs are totally unacceptable".

"The U.S. pays close to the entire cost of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation - protecting many of these same countries that rip us off on trade (they pay only a fraction of the cost - and laugh!)", he tweeted. And Senator Edward Markey, a Democrat from MA and a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Trump's proposal comes at a time he's clashing with Canada and other US allies over trade.

"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade anymore".

Having castigated his host and neighbour and disrupted the alliance of democracies, Trump tweeted about being on his way to Singapore "where we have a chance to achieve a truly wonderful result for North Korea and the World".

Asked what Trudeau did that amounted to betrayal, Kudlow criticized the Canadian leader for holding a press conference in which he called US tariffs "insulting".

"Donald Trump has dealt a further heavy blow to the Western community of states with his behavior after the G-7 summit", said Johann Wadephul, a deputy caucus leader of Merkel's bloc.

Other G7 partners also seemed stunned by Mr Trump's reaction, and pledged to support the communique.

"Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!"

Earlier this year, the United States imposed a 25% tariff for steel and 10% for aluminium on imports from the EU, Canada, and Mexico. Japan had already been subject to the levies as part of Trump's "America First" policies.

"Right now, the president is actually driving our allies away from us as we need them even more, while welcoming in the Russians", Markey said on CBS's "Face the Nation".

European officials said Trump had tried to water down the language in the draft communique on the WTO and rules-based trade.

The prospect that Trump could be moving toward an even greater protectionist trade policy is likely to chill financial markets anxious about tit-for-tat escalation that could lead to a full-blown global trade war.

That visit will come straight after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, where Trump is expected to increase pressure on other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries to join the USA and United Kingdom in committing at least 2% of their GDP to defence spending. Does anybody believe that makes sense?

It all started with him lamenting about how Trudeau was acting hurt and insisting, "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not reciprocal".

The G7 leaders issued a joint pledge on Sunday to combat protectionism and cut trade barriers after two days of often fierce arguments between the United States and both the summit hosts and Europe.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said that while he's not an expert on the matter and agreed with critics that Russian Federation has been a bad actor, it's worth considering bringing the country back in the G8.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Navarro said.

Trump advisers had taken up the attack in appearances on Sunday's news shows, leveling more withering and unprecedented criticism against Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time.
