Justin Trudeau: We won't be pushed around by Trump

Justin Trudeau: We won't be pushed around by Trump”

Friday morning he was spitting again: "Canada charges the us a 270% tariff on Dairy Products!"

But, hours after Trudeau's announcement, Trump said via a tweet that he is advising USA representatives against endorsing the G-7 communique. "And we charge nothing", Trump said.

"American jobs are on the line because of his actions and because of his administration", Trudeau said at a news conference Thursday.

Trump's concerns are said to be based on the fact that other leaders who are attending the summit disagree with him on key issues and he "does not want to be lectured by them".

On Saturday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sniped about "stragglers" after Trump was late to a breakfast session on gender equality.

His comments were reported by CTV.

Storm Alberto could strengthen as it blows across US Gulf
National Hurricane Center forecasters said that as of 11 a.m., the storm was about 130 miles (210 kilometers) southwest of Tampa. Inland areas would likely experience winds of 20 to 30 miles per hour from Sunday night through Monday afternoon.

Trump addressed the subject of global trade during an impromptu news conference at the summit on Saturday, saying that he does not want to see other countries take advantage of the USA over trade.

Trump planned to leave the summit on Saturday before it discussed climate change and the health of oceans, underlining fractures in the G7 exacerbated by the tariffs.

The meeting, which is taking place in Quebec, has had a six-plus-one tone from the start and the seven countries Canada, Britain, the US, France, Germany, Italy and Japan will most likely not be issuing a joint statement as they could not reach a consensus on trade.

"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in", Trump said during an impromptu press conference at the summit.

Trump knew, of course, that other G7 members don't want to eliminate all tariffs, just the new USA ones they see as potentially damaging to their economies. I mean, we have India, where some of the tariffs are 100 percent. "Or we're going to make a deal directly with Canada, directly with Mexico", Trump said Saturday. "And it's going to stop".

"They do so much more business with us than we do with them. the numbers are so astronomically against them. we win that war a thousand times out of a thousand".

No French Open seeding for Serena Williams
French Open organizers announced on Monday they will not give Williams a seeding. "Proud to participate to keep the sport clean". Williams , who has won 23 grand slam singles titles, is world ranked a lowly 453rd having returned this year from having a baby.

Trudeau on Saturday rejected a US demand for a sunset clause in NAFTA but said he was prepared to compromise on the issue, which is holding up talks to update the 1990s-era pact.

If leaders were "cordial" with Trump he may have taken it the wrong way. Trudeau rejected the idea. "We have a tremendous trade imbalance". To United States, frankly, it would be a good thing but I'm not looking to do that.

This, he suggested, could involve 'a check in and a renewal'.

Mexico slapped a 25% import tariff on US steel products, as well as 20% on pork products, 25% on bourbon and duties on other agricultural goods including cranberries.

In response, Trump clapped back against Trudeau on Twitter, writing - without calling Trudeau out by name - "The United States will not allow other countries to impose massive Tariffs and Trade Barriers on its farmers, workers and companies". Canada has promised retaliatory measures on July 1.
