Macron Calls Trump Incoherent After He Refuses To Sign G7 Statement

The president's move to reject the communique contradicted a statement from Trudeau earlier, in which the prime minister announced "we have released a joint communique by all seven countries".

Trump swiftly responded to Trudeau by upending the communiqué in a series of tweets Saturday evening.

Trudeau had said after Trump's exit that Canada would retaliate against USA tariffs. "We will stand by them and anyone who would depart from them... shows their incoherence and inconsistency".

Peter Navarro, a trade adviser to President Donald Trump, escalated the White House's rebuke of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, calling him weak and dishonest on Sunday.

But Trudeau pointed to firm commitments from some members of the G7 to promote cleaner oceans and fund better access to education for girls in poor countries.

Nevertheless, Trump appears determined to up-end the trade relationship, insisting that the U.S. is the loser, and has demanded that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) be renegotiated or abandoned.

On June 1, Trump sends the first of several Twitter salvos against what he says are Canada's unfair trade policies - "Canada has treated our Agricultural business and Farmers very poorly for a very long period of time". Among other things, she said the government should be preparing to keep pace with corporate tax cuts and tax breaks south of the border.

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday", Navarro said: "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump".

"I guess they're going to go back to the drawing board and check it out, right?" he said, warning that if his allies make good on threats to take retaliatory measures they could find themselves shut out of American markets.

The president spoke at a spontaneous news conference at the G7 summit in Canada.

Navarro said Trump "did the courtesy to Justin Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit".

Trump has infuriated the European Union, Canada and Mexico by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports. The president also repeated claims that Canada overtaxes American dairy products under its supply management system and complained about Canadian automobiles flooding the US market.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable, but we will not be pushed around", Trudeau recently said. It came in sharp contrast to a roar of disapproval among Canadian politicians, who banded together across party lines to denounce Trump's attack and praise the bilateral and trading relationship between the two neighbors.

"As far as this retaliation goes, the American press needs to do a much better job of what the Canadians are getting ready to do because it's nothing short of an attack on our political system and it's nothing short of Canada trying to raise its high protectionist barriers even higher on things like maple syrup and other goods", he said. Earlier that day, Trump also tweeted: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".
