Trump falsely accuses Canada of burning down White House

From global pal to Twitter challenger, French President Emmanuel Macron has tweeted a sharp warning to U.S. President Donald Trump over tariffs ahead of the G7 summit in Quebec this weekend.

Trump's concerns are said to be based on the fact that other leaders who are attending the summit disagree with him on key issues and he "does not want to be lectured by them".

"I have been Russia's worst nightmare", he said.

"We will also obviously have some very robust discussions on trade", Trudeau said.

Despite the G7's efforts to coax the Trump administration away from a go-it-alone approach, some analysts now question whether Washington remains committed to basic policies that have upheld the post-World War Two worldwide economic system. The French president, Emmanuel Macron, said yesterday that this doesn't mean there won't be an agreement.

And he said Trump's determination to bait his allies over trade and diplomatic engagements "would only play into the hands of those who seek a new post-West order where liberal democracy and fundamental freedoms would cease to exist".

Trudeau offered the G7's support, saying it's important "to demonstrate the solidarity of the world's leading industrialized economies behind the president's efforts on the Korean Peninsula".

According to the sources, Trudeau pressed Trump on how he could justify the tariffs as a "national security" issue. There's this meeting coming up in Singapore that Trump is much more interested in making than hanging around Quebec listening to 6 allies chew his ear off for going it alone on trade and climate change.

Macron said he and Trudeau discussed their "common vision of the world, " adding that "this period is marked by great challenges".

Mueller slaps Manafort with two new obstruction charges and names conspirator Kilimnik
Gates, who was originally indicted along with Manafort, has pleaded guilty to two charges and is cooperating with prosecutors. The Ukraine first started investigating Kilimnik's supposed ties to Russia's intelligence services in August 2016.

When Mr. Trudeau announced retaliatory levies on a slew of USA goods - from orange juice to pickles - and accused the Trump administration of ignoring "logic and common sense" on trade, Mr. Trump called out the Prime Minister by name in a statement that threatened to tear up the North American free-trade agreement.

Mr Trump was heading into a bigger controversy over trade as other G7 leaders, including host Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, have been angered over Washington's imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminium imported from allies including Canada and the European Union.

Top White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow opposed tariffs before joining Trump's team, but now says he agrees the trade status quo hurts America.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel suggested to the German parliament on Wednesday that she is bracing for some frank talks.

The initiative will be announced at the G7 summit in Quebec tomorrow.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer joined in the pile-on of criticism saying, "readmitting Russian Federation to the G7 would reward Vladimir Putin for actions the US and his allies have condemned, and would clearly be contrary to America's interests". "The president is not going to leave NAFTA". He's proven himself to be a leader on the world stage, " Kudlow told a Washington briefing.

Those include China's assistance to state-owned enterprises, investment restrictions on foreign firms, forced technology transfer, industrial policy and the protection of intellectual property.

"I've been firm, I've been clear, but I don't think descending into insults is right for the way Canada engages with the world", the prime minister said.
