Tariffs, Sunset Clause Are Both NAFTA Dealbreakers, Canada Tells US

In a Twitter rant on Thursday, Trump lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, venting about Canadian tariffs on US dairy products.

Trump called the summit a "one time shot" for Kim, but expressed optimism at the beginning of talks with the North Korean regime.

Instead, just hours before what's expected to be a combative Canadian debut at the G7 summit, Trump fired off a series of angry tweets directed at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron and the European Union on trade issues.

"Naturally we can not force the United States to change their mind", said Tusk, who is a former prime minister of Poland and is now president of the European Council. He says "we're not looking to play games".

"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in, I think it would be good for the world, I think it would be good for Russian Federation, I think it would be good for the United States, I think it would be good for all the countries of the current G7".

President Donald Trump on Friday threatened to "terminate" the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) if he is not able to reach a trade deal at the G7 Summit.

Trudeau and the other G7 leaders used their meeting to try to persuade Trump to abandon the tariffs, which affect all of America's G7 allies.

Trump says he spoke with world leaders about his trade policies and called for the elimination of tariffs, trade barriers or subsidies.

Trump created a distraction when he walked in late for Saturday's breakfast meeting during the Group of Seven summit of leading industrialized nations being held in Quebec.

Nadal downs Del Potro to reach 11th French Open final
At least Thiem has in the past found the key to unraveling the Nadal clay court enigma. "He's been a very complex opponent". It is worth relaying, though, that in last year's semifinal, Nadal dropped just seven games total against the Austrian.


Trudeau addressed the president's Twitter blasts while visiting Quebec's Saguenay region on Thursday.

The trade spat has dominated the meeting, with Canada and European leaders threatening retaliatory action in response to USA tariffs on steel and aluminum.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed cynicism earlier this week about her prospects for the G7 summit, slyly faulting the Trump administration for its abandoning of old allegiances.

"We're either going to have NAFTA in a better negotiated form or we're going to have two deals", the USA president said.

Trump, who angered his G7 partners last week with tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico as part of his "America First" agenda, vowed to hold firm until USA goods had "fair" access to markets.

Still, a French official said on Friday the United States and European Union would establish a dialogue on trade within the next two weeks, signalling a modest step forward for the bitterly divided allies of the G7.

Earlier this week, White House economic adviser Larry Kudow said that Trump was not looking to withdraw from the agreement and was instead trying to negotiate separate deals with Mexico and Canada.

Speaking to reporters at the annual G-7 meeting, the president said that totally eliminating trade barriers between the nations would be "the ultimate thing" and "that's the way it should be". Canada is strongly of the opposite view, with Trudeau calling that rationale "insulting" since Canada and the US are so integrated on continental defence and security issues.
