Merkel slams Donald Trump’s G7 tweets as ‘depressing’ and ‘sobering’

Investors have called on the G7 to phase out coal generation all together

Investors have called on the G7 to phase out coal generation all together

According to BBC, Canada, the U.S., the U.K., France, Italy, Japan, and Germany agreed on "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade", as well as, the importance to fight protectionism.

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 USA ally and neighbor. Yet after leaving the summit for his Tuesday meeting with the leader of North Korea, Trump tweeted that he would instruct USA officials not to endorse the G7 statement, after objecting to comments from summit host Trudeau.

As he flew from Canada to Singapore on Saturday night, Mr Trump displayed his ire via Twitter, which he also employed to insult Mr Trudeau as "dishonest" and "weak". Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%.

Her interview came about a day after Trump refused to endorse the G7 summit's communique that called for reducing tariff barriers.

President Trump "is not going to let a Canadian Prime Minister push him around - push him, POTUS, President Trump, around - on the eve of this" North Korean Summit, Kudlow announced.

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 recent weeks, trading partners of the United States have criticised new tariffs on steel and aluminium imports imposed by the Trump administration.

President Donald Trump's call to bring Russian Federation back into a group of the world's major advanced economies drew opposition from both Democratic and Republican lawmakers who said Moscow shouldn't be rewarded for its bad - and unrepentant - behavior.

The commitment of the G7's four European countries - Italy, France, Britain and Germany - is in line with that of the European Union, which is looking to ban single-use plastic products and recycle 90 percent of plastic bottles by 2025.

"This weekend, certainly if you care about America's place in the world, had to be one of the most concerning, certainly, and I'll just say the most depressing, in Donald Trump's year-and-a-half in office", Scarborough said on "Morning Joe" while introducing James Stavridis, chief global security and diplomacy analyst for NBC News and MSNBC.

Peter Navarro, a trade adviser for Trump, was even more damning in his comments about Trudeau.

The U.S. appears increasingly isolated among its key allies in its insistence on imposing new tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum.

"The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before-both in public, and in private conversations with the president", Trudeau's office announced in a statement, according to Reuters.

"I would say that the level of relationships is a 10 - we have a great relationship".

"Here's the thing", Kudlow said, "he really kind of stabbed us in the back". He said US representatives will examine the tariffs on automobiles coming into the country and bemoaned the Canadian tariffs that affect American companies and farmers.
