Trump ramps up Twitter criticism of Canada ahead of G7 getting underway

Didn't Canada Burn Down White House? Donald Trump Asked Justin Trudeau

Trump, citing national security concerns, has slapped stiff tariffs on Canada and the European Union, prompting retaliatory levies and setting off a trade war that leaders say ultimately will hurt businesses, workers and consumers around the globe.

Solidifying his solo status on the world stage, Trump also lashed out at longtime allies over their criticism of his trade policies and plans an early exit from the G-7 meeting.

Trump's presidency has been clouded by a federal investigation into Russian meddling into the 2016 USA election and possible coordination by people in Trump's campaign.

French President Emmanuel Macron and Mr Trump, who exchanged terse Twitter messages ahead of the G7 summit, had a brief "very cordial" discussion about trade and North Korea upon arrival in Quebec, a French official said.

Argentina Vs Israel Called Off Due To Messi Threats
Under pressure from pro-Palestine campaigners, Argentina has canceled a controversial World Cup warm-up match against Israel in the occupied Jerusalem al-Quds amid an worldwide outcry over the regime's crimes against Palestinians.

President Trump contended, though, that he has been Russia's "worst nightmare" when it comes to increased sanctions and worldwide pressure and that it would be more productive for Russian Federation to be involved in the meetings between the countries. "We'll have a better deal".

Trump also singled out tariffs on USA dairy products in yet another scathing tweet directed at Canada just before the G-7. He has also refused to condemn the Russian strongman over the Kremlin's interference in the USA presidential election, at one point suggesting he trusts Putin's denials of wrongdoing over the findings of his own intelligence agencies.

"The American president may not mind being isolated", Macron tweeted, "but neither do we mind signing a 6-country agreement if need be". Canadian and Mexican authorities also said they would take retaliatory steps.

As he prepared to travel to Canada, he ramped up his blast of Canada on Twitter this morning over what he says are unfair trade practices.

"Why isn't the European Union and Canada informing the public that for years they have used massive Trade Tariffs and non-monetary Trade Barriers against the USA", he later added. The EU trade surplus with the U.S.is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out. If you look at what Canada, and Mexico, the European Union - all of them - have been doing to us for many, many decades.

Trump himself is reportedly unhappy at having to attend G7 on the eve of his historic meeting with Kim Jong-un in Singapore.

Trump's "America first" agenda triggered widespread criticism at the G20 summit past year. The member countries are Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Germany, the United States and Britain.

Ministers from Germany, France and Britain have already written to USA officials urging them to shield European companies working in Iran from getting caught up in Washington's new sanctions on Tehran. Just to make clear how much contempt he has for this whole exercise, Trump will be leaving the gathering early, meaning he'll not only skip the meeting on climate change (of course), but he won't be around for the traditional conclusion, when the members craft a joint statement and hold a press conference and photo opportunity where they show their unity by standing side by side.

United States singled out by G7 allies over steel and aluminum tariffs
The EU has already issued a 10-page list of tariffs on U.S. goods ranging from Harley-Davidson motorcycles to bourbon. The countries had been granted a temporary exemption from the tariffs introduced by the White House on March 1.

"G-7 Sherpa and Deputy Assistant to the President for International Economic Affairs Everett Eissenstat will represent the United States for the remaining G-7 sessions", she added.
