Trump's trade adviser apologises for comments on Trudeau

Trump's trade adviser apologises for comments on Trudeau

This matter was brought again in the G7 summit when Justin Trudeau criticized USA president's trade policy as "insulting" in a news conference that concluded the summit.

The leaders of the world's richest democracies have promised some kind of compromise statement despite their deep divisions on trade.

All in all, the U.S. president is, once again, out of tune with even his own allies on key issues, including trade and gender equality guidelines.

The G7 summit was a "difficult" occasion, Theresa May has told MPs, with "candid discussions" between the USA president and other world leaders.

The summit in Canada ended in disarray after the US President retracted his support for the communiqué agreed by G7 leaders and then criticised Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau on social media.

In a string of angry tweets, Trump said the United States paid "close to the entire cost of Nato" to help protect countries that "rip us off on trade". However, she suggested the government should look at means of increasing trade and co-operation with other Atlantic Canadian provinces, in light of the looming trade spat with the U.S.

With Kim summit, Trump retreats from US moral leadership
In a post-summit interview with ABC News , the president said he was confident that the agreement meant full denuclearisation . Kim said there would be a "major change" in the world.

Trump made his comments in a wide-ranging news conference in Singapore following his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

It escalated when Prime Minister Trudeau stood up to Trump's bully tactics and refuted Trump's unfounded claims of unfair trading practices between the two countries.

Monday's symbolic House vote was held after Mr. Trump criticized Mr. Trudeau over the weekend for vowing to retaliate against tariffs recently imposed by the US on Canadian steel and aluminum products.

Despite all that, US President carried on yesterday saying that the "US had a big trade deficit with Canada and that a little balance was needed". The latter is about the start this week when Canadian foreign affairs minister Chrystia Freeland will travel to Washington targeting on trade talks in an attempt to alter the deteriorating situation and prevent a possible trade war.

However Trump was at odds with numerous other global leaders, suggesting Russian Federation be re-admitted to the group.
