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

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau meets with the President of the United States Donald J. Trump in the Oval Office

The French president slammed USA counterpart for "unproductive" tariffs and preventing other nations from dealing with Iran.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau rejects a United States proposal to scrap the North American Free Trade Agreement in favor of a bilateral trade pact. "Maybe the American president doesn't care about being isolated today, but we don't mind being six, if needs be".

Trump said on Twitter.

One of CNN's sources told reporters it was unclear if the comment was interpreted as a joke by Trudeau, saying, "To the degree one can ever take what is said as a joke".

He said G7 countries shouldn't be talking about waging a trade war when there are real wars to fight, pointing to challenges in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq. However, in Canada, the war contributed to a growing sense of national identity, including the idea that civilian soldiers were largely responsible for repelling the American invaders.

The Prime Minister also raised strong concerns about the U.S.'s Section 232 investigation on automobile imports, given the mutually beneficial integration of the Canadian and American auto industries.

Macron had so far taken a more conciliatory tone with Trump, whom he calls his "friend". "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 worldwide force".

A source told CNN in one particularly strained moment, Trump seemed to justify his actions by referencing the War of 1812. "I regard this as much like a family quarrel", Kudlow said.

Mr. Trump can also expect to be the odd man out on the issues of climate change and Iran, given his decision to pull out of the Iranian nuclear deal. One of the largest reasons for Trump's reluctance is the host country, the report said.

Macron also said today, that the USA should not prevent other nations from keeping the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, warning Washington against pushing Iran itself out of the agreement.

"Don't prevent other people from keeping it [the JCPOA] and don't push Iran out of it".

"The president wants to go on the trip", Larry Kudlow, Trump's top economic adviser, said of the summit in Canada.

The anger and frustration with the Trump administration from key US allies was abundant on Thursday, with Macron suggesting that the G-7's six other members would forge a path ahead at the summit without the U.S.

"We are all engaged in conflicts in Syria, in Iraq, in the Sahel, in different places in the world".

Other reasons for Trump's reluctance to head to Canada, per The Washington Post, include Trump's poor relationship for German Chancellor Angela Merkel and UK Prime Minister Theresa May; a distaste for the likely dressing-down he will receive from foreign leaders on trade; and a desire to focus on the North Korean summit in Singapore next week.

In another tweet, Trump called Trudeau "indignant".
