Trump asks if Canada burnt down White House in call with PM

Macron has concluded that the other members of the G7 - the U.K., Germany, Japan, France, Italy and Canada - must stand up to the us over Trump's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum from the European Union, Canada and Mexico as well as other issues.

Trump also is set to hold a series of one-on-one meetings, including with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow defended the Trump administration's trade policy Wednesday ahead of a meeting with global leaders that is expected to focus on US tariffs.

"We Europeans and the Japanese are not ready to give up everything to get" Trump's signature, he said, adding that would be a "mistake".

The news outlet - and social media - noted that President Trump's joke was "awkward" given the grieving families in attendance. Others offered she may be healing after some secret plastic surgery. "She's looking at us right there".

Trump doesn't plan on withdrawing from NAFTA, but he wants to try a different approach, Kudlow said, adding that his boss "hates multilateral" treaties.

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".

Harry Kane scored 30 goals with Tottenham Hotspur and could be a factor with a once-again strong England team. Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo is used to scoring hat-tricks, but one has eluded him in his career.

"President Trump is a trade reformer and I don't think people see it that way", Kudlow said.

"But we don't have high expectations they will influence President Trump", he said.

President Donald Trump accused Canada of burning down the White House during the War of 1812, according to a new report.

USA tariffs and punitive actions taken by the European Union and Canada have widened the gap between leaders threatening the start of a trade war. "The impact on Canada and ultimately on workers in the USA won't be a laughing matter".

The White House declined to comment and the National Security Council did not immediately return a CNN request for comment.
