Canada also plans to impose similar taxes on steel and aluminum imports from the U.S., as well as levy taxes on such goods as whiskey, orange juice and other food products in addition to that. Or we'll stop trading with them. In the run-up to the G7 summit, Trump continued to rile up his fellow world leaders with accusations of unfair trade practices, provoking angry responses from both Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron, who even suggested that the G7 could fare as the G6, without the U.S. if need be.
Trade is set to dominate the G-7 talks, as allies speak out against U.S. policies that threaten to upend global growth and the multilateral system. "He ought to come out today and wish President Trump well in the negotiations instead of taking pot shots at him".
The decision to back out of the communique was "in large part" because of the upcoming North Korea summit, Kudlow said. "Our Tariffs are in response to his 270% on dairy!"
"A meeting six of the leaders hoped would end by de-escalating a budding trade war ended up accelerating it".
Trudeau called the fact that the USA had based the tariffs on a national security reason "kind of insulting".
The president said he was unconcerned about raising a trade ruckus at the gathering that usually emphasizes unity and downplays its disagreements.
Mr Trump's salvo capped a rollecoaster two days of controversies that began with his suggestion Russian Federation be readmitted to the G7, then what a French official described as a "rant" full of "recriminations" against United States trading partners, followed by a denial of any tensions with leaders at the summit and his description of their relationship as a "10".
"Some people like the idea of bringing Russian Federation back in".

The possibility remains that Cleveland could retool and make another run, but doing so would require some serious creativity. Mitchell and James' games could clash a bit - neither are pure shooters - but it's a situation worth exploring.
A senior British government source said that Russian Federation needs to change its approach before any conversation about it rejoining the G7 can begin. "But to walk away from our allies in this way I think is a mistake".
"We need Russian Federation for disarmament talks" and for discussions about both Ukraine and Syria, Merkel said.
"We are looking for peace in the world, we are not looking to play games".
Russian Federation was expelled following Vladimir Putin's annexation of Crimea in 2014, which Mr Trump characterised as "something happened a while ago".
"We condemn the attack using a military grade nerve agent in Salisbury, United Kingdom".
Merkel said she expected Italy's new coalition government to vote for the extension of European sanctions against Russian Federation.
Trump was miffed by comments Trudeau made Saturday during a news conference.
But despite the rows over trade and Russia, Mr Trump rated his relationship with other G7 leaders as 10 out of 10. "With that being said I think we'll probably easily make a deal".
He said Trump "did the courtesy to Justin Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit". She also praised the joint statement itself as a "laboriously negotiated" document.
