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

Donald Trump at the White House IFTAR dinner

Trump was last to arrive for the G7 working breakfast, walking into the room when the summit's host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, had almost finished his welcome and presentation speech, Efe reported.

Christinne Muschi / Reuters U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to the press as he leaves the G7 Summit in La Malbaie, Que. on Saturday.

"PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he 'will not be pushed around.' Very dishonest and weak".

President Trump concluded his visit to the Group of Seven summit on Saturdaywith warnings to USA allies, saying if they don't eliminate barriers to trade, they could lose access to the US economy.

"The United States has been taken advantage of for decades and decades and we can't do that anymore".

"They do so much more business with us than we do with them. the numbers are so astronomically against them. we win that war a thousand times out of a thousand".

The president met with leaders from Canada, Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan in Quebec, where trade talks dominated the summit. "And no subsidies. I even said, 'no tariffs!'" Trump insisted.

Earlier in the day, Trudeau said that the communique was agreed by all countries. The European leaders sought to show unity against Trump and prod him into concessions on the tariffs, or at least an agreement to talk more about them.

French President Emmanuel Macron responded in a "courteous but very firm tone" to present the European side of the story, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe chimed in as well, the official said. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!'

Mr Trump says tariffs are needed to reverse America's trade deficit.

The EU has pledged its own set of retaliatory tariffs, which would come into force next month and target American exports such as bourbon whiskey and jeans.

Mr. Trump planned to leave the summit on Saturday before it discussed climate change and the health of oceans, underlining fractures in the G7 exacerbated by USA trade tariffs. "They should let Russian Federation come back in because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table", the USA leader said before boarding the presidential jet.

The trade spat dominated the meeting, with Canadian and European leaders threatening retaliatory duties in response to the USA levies.

'I think there are various discussions about alternatives that would not be that, and that would not be entirely destabilizing for a trade deal, and I think we are open to creativity, ' he said.

A later statement, released by a member Mr Trudeau's communications team on Twitter, said there was nothing new in the Prime Minister's press conference.

In his tweetstorm - and again on Saturday - the President said that such actions were hurting US farmers and "killing our agriculture".

By ordering his representatives to back out of the communique, Trump appeared to be asserting his oft-stated aim of upsetting the status quo whether by pulling out of the global climate accord or the worldwide nuclear deal with Iran or threats to scrap the North American Free Trade Agreement.

On Saturday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sniped about "stragglers" after Trump was late to a breakfast session on gender equality.
