Expect disagreements over tariffs at G7 summit - Canada official

Justin Trudeau

The French and Canadian delegations will try to persuade US President Donald Trump at the G7 summit to take a more conventional path on trade amid his imposition of tariffs on the European Union and Canada, French President Emmanuel Macron said in a press briefing.

However, Trump can tell Trudeau himself on Friday when he joins leader from the U.K., Canada, Japan, Italy, Germany and France at the G7 Summit.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau turned down the United States' (US) proposal to scrap the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and signed a bilateral trade pact on Wednesday.

According to White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow, Trump's preference now is to actually negotiate with Mexico and Canada separately.

But Trump took to Twitter earlier today to signal he's got his elbows up in advance of his Canadian debut in Quebec.

Trump doesn't plan on withdrawing from NAFTA, but he wants to try a different approach, Kudlow said, adding that his boss "hates multilateral" treaties.

A phone call between Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron last week reportedly went badly, after Macron berated Trump for his trade policies, a media report claims.

But the U.S.is getting more serious about the possibility.

And though we're not particularly opposed to anything here, it's safe to say that what we ended up with was pretty much flawless . Some DC fans were into the over the top portrayal with hipster tattoos and gold teeth, while others were completely turned off.

With his new tariffs increasing USA isolation, Trump heads to Canada on Friday for a meeting of the Group of Seven industrialized nations.

"Macron thought he would be able to speak his mind, based on the relationship", the source said.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday, June 6, rejected a United States proposal to scrap the North American Free Trade Agreement in favor of a bilateral trade pact.

Kudlow said allies should understand that Trump "will do what is necessary to protect the US, its businesses and its workforce", adding that Trump "has always said, and I agree, tariffs are a tool in that effort".

On the other hand, it may be created to signal that Trump is in fact willing to end the quarter-century-old agreement, the firm says in its trade report published today (7 June).

Trump has spent much of this year engaged in a series of escalating trade wars with a number of countries, including USA allies Canada, Mexico, and members of the European Union like France.

United States tariffs and punitive actions taken by the European Union and Canada have widened the gap between leaders threatening the start of a trade war.

As well as the metals levies, Trump has ordered an investigation into whether vehicle imports also threaten national economic security, a move that would hit G7 members Germany and Japan particularly hard. If Trump really is accusing them of historical crimes they didn't even have the ability to commit, I don't have much hope that we will avoid the certain economic catastrophe that we're barreling towards next month.
