After ‘difficult’ G7 summit, UK’s May warns against unilateral action on trade

"In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate".

The G-7 summit in Charlevoix, Quebec, ended in disarray after US President Donald Trump locked horns with the other G-7 leaders on trade issues and other policy matters, and then reversed course at last minute refusing to endorse the group's joint communique.

So each leader, Trump and Trudeau included, left the summit and went off to tell their publics how hard they had fought for the national interest.

The United States has alienated Canada and other allies by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, arguing that they pose a threat to USA national security.

May was asked bluntly by Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable what point there was in the G7, but May pointed to a number of achievements made during the summit.

Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, suggested that Trump saw Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before the summit with Kim.

Trump has consistently said that countries that have a trade surplus with the USA - meaning they export more to the United States than they import - are "taking advantage" of the US.

It escalated when Prime Minister Trudeau stood up to Trump's bully tactics and refuted Trump's unfounded claims of unfair trading practices between the two countries.

In addition to rejecting the insults aimed at Mr. Trudeau, the measure passed Monday said that lawmakers "strongly oppose the illegitimate tariffs imposed by the US government against Canadian steel and aluminum workers" and "stand in solidarity with the Government of Canada in its decision to impose retaliatory tariffs". "You can't do that".
