Under fire over tariffs, Trump heads to G-7 summit in Canada

Bromance between Trump and Macron takes a hit

UNITED States President Donald Trump wants to end the three-party talks to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta), aiming instead to deal separately with Canada and Mexico to restructure the trade accord, a senior adviser said on Tuesday.

Before departing for Canada, Mr Trump tweeted: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the U.S. massive tariffs and create a non-monetary barriers".

In Quebec, Trump is expected to have tense discussions with the leaders of key Western allies over trade and other issues.

Macron and Trudeau said they would not back down to Mr. Trump who says his administration's recently imposed tariffs will help keep the USA safe.

"I look forward to seeing them tomorrow", Trump wrote about Friday's start of the two-day summit.

Abe is not the only world leader to have tried charming Trump and failed to come away with concessions from the United States leader.

According to the RT with reference to the representative of the administration of the French leader of Emmanuel Macron, the President is too concerned about America imposed taxes on the import of metals, the refusal of the U.S. to participate in the nuclear deal with Iran and the Paris climate agreement.

Ministers from Germany, France and Britain have already written to US officials urging them to shield European companies working in Iran from getting caught up in Washington's new sanctions on Tehran.

The ban on mobiles in schools, one of President Emmanuel Macron's campaign promises, will take effect in September 2018.

While there have been disputes over policy, analysts say the current dust-ups between the Trump administration and longtime US allies point to a potential shift in worldwide dynamics.

The visit will be Trump's first official visit to Canada as president.

But Trump is deadly serious about reforming a global trade system he believes is fundamentally broken, Kudlow said.

Mr Trump's failure to shake Ms Merkel's hand when he first hosted her in Washington last spring underlined the cooling in relations between the Western world's two most important leaders.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she expected "difficult discussions" at the summit while Canada and Mexico already have retaliated against a range of USA exports and the European Union has promised to do so as well, raising the specter of a tit-for-tat escalation. President Macron tweeted the other six leaders wouldn't mind signing one without the U.S.

Maas also highlighted the need for European nations to seek other allies as their relationship with Washington deteriorates, particularly with natios that "wish to hold to the multilateral world order".

"Over the last 24 years, we've built a very integrated supply chain, which has been good for economy, good for consumers, good for workers on all sides".
