Trump spars with Trudeau, Macron on trade ahead of G-7 summit
- On Friday, Trump is scheduled to attend the annual summit and meet with leaders from the U.K., Canada, Japan, Italy, Germany and France-for the G-7 summit.
- In a tweet, Trump accused Canada and France of levying “massive tariffs” and creating “non-monetary barriers.”
- He has repeatedly lashed out at Canada’s Trudeau on Twitter. Last week, Trump said Canada’s trade policies have treated American farmers “very poorly for a long period of time.”
In a tweet, Trump accused the U.S. allies of levying “massive tariffs” and creating “non-monetary barriers.”
Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the U.S. massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers. The EU trade surplus with the U.S. is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out. Look forward to seeing them tomorrow.
