'Fair trade, fool trade', Trump vents anger on NATO allies, EU, Trudeau post-G7

US signs G-7 declaration calling for reduction of tariffs after tense summit with allies

"We would hope that the USA would similarly honour the commitments that they have made". "Let's be serious", the French official, speaking on condition of anonymity, added.

The G7 groups the United States, Japan, Germany, France, Britain, Italy and Canada.

The verbal volleys by Mr Navarro and Mr Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, picked up where Mr Trump left off on Saturday evening with a series of tweets from Air Force One en route to Singapore for his nuclear summit on Tuesday with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

In scenes, remarks, and tweets that are unprecedented in the diplomatic world, Trump brought the US-led alliance of advanced economies close to a rupture, refusing to sign a joint communique with the group and calling Trudeau a "dishonest liar" - all over the contentious issue of trade tariffs on which he feels the USA has been unfairly treated.

And former foreign policy advisor to Trudeau, Roland Paris, called Trump "a pathetic little man-child".

"We must put the American worker first!"

Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak" on Twitter on Saturday and then sent Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro to hammer the message home on Sunday morning news shows in an extraordinary assault on a close US ally and neighbor.

He accused Canada - America's second largest trading partner - of bungling the trade relationship between the countries and of trying to raise "protectionist barriers even higher" on Canadian products like maple syrup.

Supreme Court Backs Ohio's Right to Purge Voting Rolls

House vote still looms at Net Neutrality comes to an end
With the repeal of the new rules and the general-conduct provisions, the FCC will no longer have any oversight over such programs. Is there a chance the repeal is, well, repealed? However, the bill has yet to be voted on in the House.

British Prime Minister Theresa May, who also attended the G7 summit in Canada, stood with Trudeau on the issue of trade.

Yet in the above photos and others, the USA president's body language appears friendlier toward the dictator than to strong U.S. allies.

Companies that transform the metals and producers will be able to benefit from the program after the United States slapped a 25 per cent tariff on steel and a 10 per cent tariff on aluminium imports last month.

The now-rejected communique acknowledged the importance of "free, fair and mutually beneficial trade and investment".

Meanwhile, the Canadian province of Quebec has offered $C100 million ($A101 million) in loans and guarantees for steel and aluminium companies hit by the USA tariffs.

The president refused to sign a solidarity agreement with the other G7 members and suggested more tariffs could be in the works.

"A meeting six of the leaders hoped would end by de-escalating a budding trade war ended up accelerating it".

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro further escalated those attacks during an appearance on Fox News Sunday.
