Trump delivers warning on trade as he leaves G-7 summit

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has closed the G7 summit by stating he "won't be pushed around" by Donald Trump on trade.

"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 & weak".

When asked about President Trump's earlier comments on trade, in which he warned his allies off imposing retaliatory measures for the tariffs, Mr Trudeau told reporters: "The president will continue to say what he says at various occasions". Trump insisted. "That would be the ultimate thing, whether or not that works, but I did suggest it". "With one country we have $375 billion in trade deficits".

But Trump said that the notion that the G7 summit was in any way contentious was "fake news", telling reporters Saturday that the conference had been "so wonderful". On Friday, Mr Trump made a surprise call for Moscow to be readmitted, but German Chancellor Angela Merkel said other members were against the idea. The noise of Trump's helicopter landing was so loud they had to stop talking for a while, in a scene one official compared to the opening from the US television series M.A.S.H.

Alluding to the tensions as he sat with Macron on Friday, Trump said: "We've had, really, a very good relationship, very special. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

European officials said Trump had opposed language in the draft final summit communique on the need to bolster the World Trade Organization and multilateral oversight of commerce, but that this commitment would survive.

"We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the #G7 summit", said a statement from the Canadian premier's office released on Twitter.

"It's going to change", he said.

Speaking before departing early from the summit this afternoon, a furious President Trump vowed he would no longer allow the likes of the European Union to treat the United States like a "piggy bank". And tariffs are going to come way down, because people can not continue to do that.

Trump addressed the subject of worldwide trade during an impromptu news conference at the summit on Saturday, saying that he does not want to see other countries take advantage of the U.S. over trade.

The submerged data center includes 864 servers and 27.6 petabytes of storage - or almost 28 million gigabytes. An underwater cable from the European Marine Energy Centre on the Orkney Islands will power the data centre.

The US leader left the summit earlier than planned on Saturday to fly to Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, which he described as a "mission of peace".

Mr Trump has long said the North American Free Trade Agreement has been a "disaster" for the USA and has insisted that it be renegotiated.

Sticking points also remain in the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta) renegotiations between Canada, the USA and Mexico, despite it being a key topic during the bilateral meeting between Mr Trump and Canadian PM Justin Trudeau.

Trump cited progress on reaching an agreement on the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico, saying the final outcome would lead either to an improved trade deal or separate pacts with the two US neighbors.
