Trump to skip G7 climate sessions following spat with Macron, Trudeau

"Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the U.S. massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers", he tweeted.
Macron echoed that comment in a joint press conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. "G-7 sherpa and deputy assistant to the president for global economic affairs Everett Eissenstat will represent the United States for the remaining G-7 sessions", White House Press Secretary SarahSanders said in a statement.
At the summit in Charlevoix, Quebec, Trump will hold bilateral meetings with Macron and Trudeau, in addition to attending working sessions with all of the G-7 leaders. They had a brief, cordial exchange at the summit site overlooking the St. Lawrence River.
Mr Trudeau has described the USA claim that the tariff decision was taken on national security grounds as "insulting".
The tone in the immediate run-up to the meetings at La Malbaie showed no sign of compromise between a USA president determined to disrupt the status quo to force more favourable terms for the United States, and six U.S. allies resolved to stop him. Invoking his former rival Hillary Clinton, Trump touted how tough he is on Putin: "I have been Russia's worst nightmare".
The "American president" doesn't seem to "mind being isolated", Macron tweeted Thursday. "If you look at what Canada, Mexico, the European Union, all of them have been doing to us for many, many decades, we have to change it".
Mr. Trump showed no sign of backing down on Thursday, first taking to Twitter to accuse both France and Canada of imposing massive tariffs on US goods and then accusing Mr. Trudeau of "being so indignant". It is been reported that, in a phone call between the two leaders, Mr Trump wrongly accused Canada of "burning down the White House in 1812" as partial justification. Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte agrees with US President Donald Trump's idea to bring Russian Federation back to the Group of Eight (G8), as he himself wrote on Twitter on Friday.
