Trudeau, Marcon won't stop pushing Trump to turf tariffs
On the eve of what's expected to be a combative Canadian debut at the G7 summit, President Donald Trump has put at least two of the leaders on notice.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron first praised Trump today for his global peacemaking efforts to rid North Korea of nuclear weapons.
But they qualified their kudos by saying that won't stop them from pushing Trump to end tariffs the US has imposed on steel and aluminum.
They also reaffirmed their commitment to the world's rules-based order, something Trump has little time for.
Trump's Twitter feed suggests he'll arrive in Quebec with his elbows up.
Thursday evening he posted, ``Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers'', ``Look forward to seeing them tomorrow.''
He also tweeted that Canada keeps our farmers and others out.
That followed Trump's earlier Twitter posting that said ``Getting ready to go to the G7 in Canada to fight for our country on Trade (we have the worst trade deals ever made).
The G7 begins tomorrow in Quebec's Charlevoix region.
