Macron Fires back at Trump for ‘Incoherence’ and ‘Fits of Anger’

In response to Trump's tweets, the PMO released a statement shortly after that simply read, "The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't before - both in public, and in private conversations with the President".

Kudlow had been negotiating nicely with Trudeau at the summit in Quebec and the USA had agreed to join the joint communique, but Trump pulled out after he felt betrayed by Trudeau's news conference where the prime minister called Trump's tariffs on Canadian aluminum and steel exports "insulting".

"In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters", German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said when asked about Trump's decision.

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

At his closing news conference, Trudeau had repeated his prior statements that he believed the US's national-security rationale for imposing steel and aluminum tariffs was "insulting", and that Canada would impose retaliatory tariffs.

The Elysee Palace was responding to questions about the outcome of the summit, after US President Donald Trump refused to give his backing to a joint declaration, despite hours earlier signing the communique.

At the time of the interview, the president had just landed in Singapore for his upcoming summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Horn said the horsehair gloves "definitely change the dynamic of the fight". "They make it more risky , " he said. Horn believes Crawford will have a problem dealing with his size. "It wasn't that hard", Horn said.

Mr Trump also said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive auto industry, throwing the G7's efforts to show a united front into disarray.

"Not to sign a statement of solidarity, which stands for everything that we stand for, is a big mistake", Feinstein said.

Trump also called for Canada to drop all trade tariffs, such as the one created to protect Canada's small dairy industry, and threatened more trade action if Canada did not acquiesce.

He really kind of stabbed us in the back. "And that comes right from Air Force One". "I'm arguing Trudeau picked the fight", Kudlow said.

During a press conference after the summit, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau flatly rejected a proposal by the White House to insert a sunset clause in a re-negotiated North American Free Trade Agreement. "We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies". Trudeau's office, in turn, said the what the Canadian leader said on Saturday was nothing new.

"I have every desire to see our negotiations with Canada continue productively and beneficially, but Prime Minister Trudeau is sabotaging that cause by driving both sides into their corners instead of encouraging a more diplomatic dialogue", Krishnamoorthi continued. "I think among the president and his team, there's a staggering degree of economic incompetence here, when you're threatening your closest allies with tariffs not only on steel and aluminum".

Wallace pressed him on the results of Trump's aggressive trade stance: Weren't other countries' newly announced tariffs on American goods the opposite of what the White House wanted?
