G7 leaders meet amid fear of a global trade war

"If it doesn't happen, we come out even better!"

Canada's Trudeau also slammed the tariffs after they were announced, calling them "totally unacceptable".

"The president wants to go on the trip", Larry Kudlow, Trump's top economic adviser, said of the summit in Canada.

Barely 500 days into his presidency, Trump has developed a knack for alienating his fellow leaders while pursuing his "America First" foreign policy, a pushback against a global trade system which he sees as working against USA interests.

Trump is reportedly also becoming increasingly annoyed with the UK's prime minister as the president feels that May's demands on him are taking advantage of the UK-US special relationship - a partnership that was forged in the Churchill days and has lasted through till modern times.

"The president will travel directly to Singapore from Canada in anticipation of his upcoming meeting with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un Tuesday".

U.S. President Donald Trump has launched his latest salvo at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as the pair's disagreement over American tariffs on steel and aluminum intensifies.

A few hours later, he added, "Take down your tariffs & barriers or we will more than match you!"

Patrick Doyle/The Canadian Press Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron walk down the Hall of Honour on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on June 7, 2018.

"Looking forward to straightening out unfair Trade Deals with the G-7 countries". The new tariffs- 25 percent on imported steel, 10 percent on aluminum from Canada, Mexico and the European Union - threaten to drive up prices for American consumers and companies and heighten uncertainty for businesses and investors around the globe.

Robert Bothwell, a professor at the University of Toronto, said Trump's actions appear meant to break Canada at the negotiating table.

His stance will receive such a hostile reception from the other leaders of the world's richest democracies that some observers have suggested renaming the G7 summit the G6+1.

Canadian officials confirm to CNN that months ago Trump personally assured Trudeau that Canada would likely be exempt from steel and aluminum tariffs.

Canada hosts this year's G7 in La Malbaie, Quebec.

They also renewed their commitment to the fight against climate change and to promote democratic values, free and open trade, and gender equality.

But they also made it clear that won't keep them from pushing Trump to end the tariffs, which they brand as illegal and bad for everyone's economy. The decision drew criticism from European and Canadian leaders.

"The American president may not mind being isolated, " Macron tweeted, "but neither do we mind signing a six-country agreement if need be". The bloc has isolated members in the past: It suspended Russian Federation from the G8 alliance in 2014 in response to the annexation of Ukraine.

"Because these 6 countries represent values, they represent an economic market which has the weight of history behind it and which is now a true worldwide force".

He later wrote: "Tensions are growing everywhere. This G7 will be demanding".

Trump has threatened to impose tariffs on vehicle imports - something which can be damaging for Europe's economy. Trump is unlikely to back away from the nationalistic policies that have frustrated and unnerved allies but which he sees as key promises to his most loyal voters.
