France's Macron seeks to forge European front against Trump

France's Macron seeks to forge European front against Trump

If there was any hope the fissures might be repaired before Trump arrived, it was dashed on Friday morning when the President told reporters he was open to reinstating Russia's participation in the group, which was suspended after Moscow's incursion into Ukraine in 2013.

"There is a feeling, I think, over the last few months that that approach has not borne fruit, and that they haven't really gotten anything for that friendly approach", Wright said. "In the interest of all". European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker offered to visit Washington for an assessment of EU-US trade to help resolve the dispute, an official said.

Trump was departing the Canadian summit several hours early, heading to Singapore for his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un on what he called a "mission of peace".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron entered into a war of words with him about the punitive trade measures, but Trump was unmoved, insisting that the two of them, although allies, had been taking advantage of the trade process for far too long.

Already at the meeting of the finance ministers ahead of the G-7, the six non-U.S. countries released a statement raising concerns about US trade actions.

Donald Trump 'optimistic' ahead of one-on-one talks with Kim Jong
It's a dramatic departure for Trump, who kicked off 2018 bragging that his nuclear button is "much bigger" than Kim's. Trump has offered few details of what a framework for that process would look like.

"We will try to see if we can stop this from happening..."

European leaders warned Trump's stance on trade, climate, Iran and - now - Russian Federation was setting him apart, and Canada firmly rejected the tariffs threat and threatened retaliation.

Mr Trudeau said: "We are going to defend our industries and our workers".

"I want to say sometimes we disagree, but we share I'd say common concerns and common values and we share the willingness to deliver results together", Macron said.

Macron and president Donald Trump exchanged another awkward handshake Friday night at the G7 Summit in La Malbaie, Quebec. The EU trade surplus with the U.S.is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out. "Look forward to seeing them tomorrow". Take down your tariffs & barriers or we will more than match you!

Lyon pull the plug on Liverpool's Fekir deal
He came through Lyon's youth system and has made 153 appearances for the club, scoring 57 goals, having made his debut in 2013. However, it would appear Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas is likely to sell Fekir after the World Cup.

"A lot of people wrote a couple of things that weren't quite true - a little bit accurate, perhaps - we've had a little test every once in a while when it comes to trade", Trump said before the sit-down.

The BBC parsed the picture by identifying all nine individuals in it, including British Prime Minister Theresa May, who is barely visible, and Larry Kudlow, head of Trump's National Economic Council as well as several Japanese officials and USA national security adviser John Bolton.

His comment sparked a new diplomatic spat between Trudeau and the Trump administration and led Chancellor Merkel to criticize Trump's handling of the matter.

One Twitter user named Nick Wenmaekers tweeted that Macron won "the handshake game". We inherit commitments which are beyond us. She took particular issue with Trump's previous claim that imports of Canadian steel and aluminum had made United States steel and aluminum plants unsustainable, thereby threatening national security.
