President Trump is headed to Canada for what is expected to be a tense G-7 summit with western allies to fight against what he calls “unfair” trade practices.
This what the president tweeted this morning:
“I am heading for Canada and the G-7 for talks that will mostly center on the long time unfair trade practiced against the United States. From there I go to Singapore and talks with North Korea on Denuclearization. Won’t be talking about the Russian Witch Hunt Hoax for a while!”
Thursday French President Emanuel Macron also tweeted his thoughts about Trump’s policy.
“The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a 6 country agreement if need be. Because these 6 countries represent values, they represent an economic market which has the weight of history behind it and which is now a true international force.”
The Twitter spat continued later that night with Trump posting a retort.
“Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the U.S. massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers. 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,” .
