Donald Trump calls for barrier-free trade within the G7

Macron likens talking with Trump to making sausage

Macron came to Ottawa ahead of the G7 summit in part to talk strategy with Trudeau on how to deal with a mercurial president who likes to be liked.

"He is very seriously contemplating kind of a shift in the NAFTA negotiations".

President Trump on Saturday doubled down on his calls for Russian Federation to be reinstated to the G-7 group of nations, saying that the group would be more meaningful if that country could be brought back into the fold.

He complained the United States had been taken advantage of for "decades and decades" and said: "We can't do that any more". Then he pulled the US out of the Paris accord the following week.

In his final news conference before leaving, Mr Trump said trade was at the top of the agenda and the USA has been taken advantage of for decades and it cannot go on.

A tardy Donald Trump created a distraction Saturday when he showed up late for a G7 meeting on women's empowerment.

Mr Trump is leaving early to head to Singapore for his landmark summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, meaning he will miss some of the topics advanced by Mr Trudeau.

This year, the summit will be Friday and Saturday in Quebec, Canada.

Trudeau said he and Trump have disagreed over Trump's call for Canada to open up its supply management system, which protects dairy, poultry and eggs farmers, during the hard ongoing renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Just after 6 a.m., Trump used the social media platform to accuse Canada of charging USA customers astronomical tariffs on dairy products.

In March, Trump first announced the imposition of tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum, but he gave Canada, Mexico and the European Union a waiver.

"President Trump wants nothing less than wiping out Canadian dairy farming".

"For us, it was important that we have a commitment for a rule-based trade order, that we continue to fight against protectionism and that we want to reform the WTO", Merkel said.

Trump continued by saying that "we are looking for peace in the world, and not to play games" and emphasized his point, stating "the G8 would be better".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will address the media at 4 p.m. ET.

President Donald Trump will cut short his time at the G7 summit in Canada, which begins Friday, amid a public feud with several leaders on trade and climate change. The White House did not say what the president would talk about.

Advancing gender equality and women's empowerment.

Trump was seated between Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, and Christine Whitecross, a Canadian lieutenant general.

Mr. Trump's absence from all official meetings on the environment comes after he announced the US would withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.

Few Canadians fully understand Canada's arcane supply management system that utilizes production quotas, marketing boards and punishing tariffs on foreign products to protect milk, chicken, egg, and cheese farmers in this country. France will host next year and the United States in 2020.
