Merkel Says Trump Reneging on G-7 Statement Is ‘Depressing’

11 June 2018

Trudeau announced hours earlier that all G7 members had endorsed the joint communique, despite the recent trade tensions between the USA and other G7 allies.

Taking to Twitter, Sanders said, "I find it very unusual that President Trump has such a hard time getting along with the leaders of the world's major democracies but feels very comfortable with despots and authoritarian leaders like Putin, Xi Jinping, Duterte and Mohammad Bin Salman".

After declining to respond to questions during a Saturday night photo-op, Trudeau kept his views to himself during a series of photo-ops Sunday with world leaders attending a G7 outreach session in Quebec City.

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow told reporters on Wednesday that the president was aware of disagreements over trade, but he said the country's chief executive was "sticking to his guns".

He said that he did not blame G7 leaders for the "unfair" trade deals, but previous U.S. presidents. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy! For the Continent to succeed in becoming less dependent on the U.S., European countries would have to become "more loyal" to the EU, which had to develop "its own strategic culture".
