Trump takes more swipes at Canada after arrival in Singapore

G-7 split over Trump's call to readmit Russia

G-7 split over Trump's call to readmit Russia

"There is a special place in hell for any for 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 and that's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference, that's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did", Navarro said on "Fox News Sunday".

When Trump left Quebec, it was thought that a compromise had been reached, despite the tension and the determination of European leaders Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel to push back against the U.S. president's protectionist policies.

Germany's chancellor on Sunday described the decision of the President of the United States to withdraw his support for the joint statement of the Group of Seven (G7) summit "depressing".

The G7 summit came after the Trump administration decided last week to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada and Mexico, which has drawn strong opposition from USA business community and quick retaliation from major us trading partners.

Mr Trump said the move was based on Mr Trudeau's "false statements. and the fact that Canada is charging massive tariffs to our United States farmers, workers and companies".

The world leaders made it clear they disagreed with Trump's decision to impose higher import taxes on aluminium and steel imports from the EU, Canada and Mexico.

US President Donald Trump issued a volley of tweets on Monday venting anger on some of Washington's closest North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over the United State's trade deficit, following a divisive G7 meeting in Canada.

Trump fired back after Trudeau's press conference, blasting the Canadian leader on Twitter as "very dishonest and weak". "Canada, thank you for the ideal organisation of G7!", he said further, about the meet hosted by Trudeau in Quebec.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members, in general, make financial contributions based on their economic output, and as a result of being the world's biggest economy the United States does contribute a larger amount than other nations.

"The European Union had a $151 Billion Surplus-should pay much more for Military!"

Looking ahead to the next major diplomatic encounter with Trump - a meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance leaders in July - "it won't be easy", Merkel said.

Trump - who has a history of hair-trigger responses to slights - landed in Singapore on Sunday for the Tuesday summit meeting with Kim.

"International cooperation can't depend on anger and small words", France's Élysée Palace said in a statement.

However, he noted that the US tariffs are "insulting" and Canada "will not be pushed around".

We will act too, says the German Chancellor.

Canadian officials, including Trudeau, have fanned out across the United States as part of a months-long charm offensive to appeal to pro-trade Republicans at every level. Trudeau stuck our president in the back.

The German foreign minister, Heiko Maas, on Sunday called on European nations to stick together following Trump's announcement.

Asked why she allowed Trump to run rings around her, Merkel pointed to the EU's retaliatory tariffs and said, "We don't let ourselves be taken advantage of again and again".

"If we want Europe to appear strong, then we have to find compromises amongst ourselves", she said in a swipe at Italy's new populist government.

"We have done just that at this summit, registering our deep disappointment at the unjustified decision by the USA to apply tariffs to European Union steel and aluminium imports". I think it would be good for the world.
