G-7 Officials Toil Through Night to Paper Over Differences

World Cup Macron will go to Russia to support France after they have reached quarters

According to media reports, even as late as Thursday afternoon, Trump was rethinking his presence at the G7 meeting, telling advisers that there would be no point in attending the event since the United States would be outnumbered on key issues. "And I think on trade, there is a critical path, there is a way to progress altogether", he said, speaking in English.

Canada's foreign minister Chrystia Freeland expressed outrage that Trump had invoked a national security justification for his global tariffs, even on imports from close USA allies.

"We have massive trade deficits with nearly every country". Trump said the final outcome would lead either to a better agreement on NAFTA or separate trade deals with both Canada and Mexico.

The remarks caused an immediate reaction from the G7's other leaders.

The tight relationship between President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron appears to be crumbling as the French leader gets tough on the U.S. president's trade policy. Trump said in a second tweet.

The two-day summit in Canada has been marred by fears of a trade war and tit-for-tat exchanges of hostile tweets, with U.S. trading partners furious over Mr Trump's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from the EU, Canada and Mexico as part of his "America First" agenda.

Leaders of the G7 nations spent hunting for a face saving formula to mask the deep rift inflicted on the Western alliance by US President Donald Trump's assault on global trade rules. The president said Saturday that re-admitting Russian Federation to the elite club would be "an asset", telling reporters, "we're looking for peace in the world".

GFA dissolved by Ghana government
Youth and Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah told KweséESPN that the dissolution means all football activity is on hold in the country. The football association issued a statement last month backing their president and saying he was innocent until proven guilty.

In the first day of a two-day G-7 summit in Quebec's Charlevoix, some members pointed to the importance of Russia's involvement in major issues of the worldwide community, while others opposed Moscow's re-entry into the G-7, the official told reporters.

He made the comment at the White House yesterday after hours of further escalating his rhetoric against long-time allies over United States trade practices.

A German official said that if Trump declines to sign a communique, it won't be the end of the G-7, but it would be a worrisome signal.

Trudeau, much like Macron, also attempted to take a gentler approach to Trump in the early days of Trump's presidency.

Trump told reporters he pressed for "fair and reciprocal" trade practices at the G-7 meeting in Canada, urging his foreign counterparts to eliminate all tariffs, trade barriers and subsidies in their trading practices.

Mr Trump told reporters at the G7 Summit he believed North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could make his country great but warned him: "It's a one-time shot".
