Trudeau, Trump continue fight on trade after Trump leaves G7

Donald Trump Trump to leave G7 summit early amid feud with Trudeau, Macron

In a news conference after the summit, the Canadian leader reasserted his opposition to the U.S. tariffs, and vowed to press ahead with retaliatory moves on 1 July.

The President warned Canada and Europe to back off their threats to hit back with retaliatory trade measures on July 1 if the US does not lift the steel and aluminum levies.

"We can show the USA president that his actions, unacceptable actions, are hurting his own citizens", Trudeau told reporters this week.

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

Mrs May said: "Where we disagree with our allies on something it is right that we say so and air the issue openly and frankly".

US President Donald Trump left Canada before the end of the G7 summit and even before the final wording of a joint statement had been agreed. Much of Canada's export sector is tightly linked to having an open border with the United States.

"It was a hard time, rough, very frank".

The president says at the Group of Seven summit: "If they retaliate, they're making a mistake".

Trade experts who have watched Trump negotiate with tough words on Twitter before said the bark of Trump's tweets often exceeds the bite of his policy - but that this time, Canada might struggle to respond.

"The level of relationship is a 10".

Despite smiles and jokes for the cameras, the tension among the leaders was clear. On Friday, Mr Trump made a surprise call for Moscow to be readmitted, but German Chancellor Angela Merkel said other members were against the idea.

The money raised exceeds the $1.3 billion U.S. over three years that a coalition of 30 non-governmental organizations had called on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to raise as part of his chairmanship of the G7 this year.

He left the summit early to travel to Singapore for a landmark meeting with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to try to persuade him to give up the country's nuclear weapons. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau did not wait for the USA president to kick off the meeting in La Malbaie, Quebec.

"There will not be a sunset clause ... we will not, can not sign a trade deal that expires automatically every five years", he told a news conference at the end of a Group of Seven summit in Quebec.

"The EU understands that the only way with Trump is strength", said one European official.

The outburst suggested that any deal had collapsed and his more or less explicit threat to impose sanctions on imports of cars will outrage his ostensible allies - in particular Germany and Canada who produce many for the large United States market. Mr. Trump said the move would protect domestic producers that were vital to U.S. security.

Mr Trump's strained relationship with the rest of the G7 was in evidence on Saturday when he arrived late for the opening session, with Mr Trudeau addressing a gathering that included an empty chair where the president was meant to be.
