Trump wants Russian Federation to rejoin G-7

U.S. President Donald Trump center stands with other G7 leaders as they prepare for a group

"The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversation with the President". Or we'll stop trading with them.

Mr Trump earlier warned his counterparts against retaliation after the U.S. imposed tariffs on steel and aluminium from Europe, Mexico and Canada - saying they would be "making a mistake".

President Donald Trump on Saturday tweeted the U.S. won't endorse the joint statement from the Group of Seven summit, and threatened auto tariffs.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Deputy Assistant to the President for International Economic Affairs Everett Eissenstat, will represent the United States for the G7 sessions that Trump will skip Saturday.

After departing from the Quebec summit for Singapore, Mr Trump tweeted that he had asked American representatives not to endorse the joint communique put out by the G7 leaders, which called for a "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism. "We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", it said, reflecting the typical language of decades of G7 statements. Trump has also maintained his stance that tariffs are a national security issue, because unfair trade deals "affect our military", he said.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on June 9, 2018 that the G7 summit in Quebec gave leaders an "opportunity to join forces, and sometimes to settle disputes".

"We have a tremendous trade imbalance", Trump said during Saturday's press conference.

"And so began a long litany of recriminations, somewhat bitter reports that the United States was treated unfairly, that the trading system was totally unfavorable to the United States, the American economy, American workers, the middle class", the official said.

Trudeau said he and Trump have disagreed over Trump's call for Canada to open up its supply management system, which protects dairy, poultry and eggs farmers, during the hard ongoing renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said there was broad agreement among G7 leaders that tariffs and other trade barriers should be reduced, though she acknowledged that differences with the United States remained.

But while Trudeau's months-long effort to reach out to USA politicians and business leaders at every jurisdiction and level may not have won over Trump, it may pay dividends if Trump's attack finally spurs support from business groups or Congress.

Trump withdrew the USA from the Paris climate accord and his attendance of a G7 session on the issue was in question well into the last minute. Russian Federation joined the G-7 in the 1990s, making it the Group of Eight, but was expelled after its annexation of Crimea in 2014.

"We stick to the communique as agreed by all participants", a European official said on condition of anonymity. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Moscow would like to focus on its work in the G20 format.

"The president will continue to say what he says at various occasions", Trudeau said.
