Vienna May Host Trump-Putin Summit

Vienna May Host Trump-Putin Summit

Trump, who repeated that his tariffs are meant to protect USA industry and workers from unfair global competition, said he had suggested to the other G7 leaders that all trade barriers, including tariffs and subsidies, be eliminated. Both Moscow and Trump have denied the allegations.

President Trump leaves the G-7 summit after holding a press conference in the Canadian resort town of La Malbaie.

Speaking about Russia's military incursion in Crimea, a peninsula that was part of Ukraine, Trump on Saturday blamed President Obama for the annexation. Russian Federation was expelled from the group - which now includes France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the US - following its annexation of Crimea in 2014.

The proposal comes following two days of testy back-and-forth comments on trade between the USA president and Washington's Canadian and European allies. He says "we're not looking to play games".

He looked ahead to the next big meeting on his schedule - a summit in Singapore next week with North Korea's leader.

Canada has already said it will impose some $16.5 billion in new tariffs on USA goods ranging from lawn mowers to felt-tipped pens in response to the new 10 per cent levy on the country's aluminum and the 25 per cent tariff on Canadian steel.

When told the reporter was from CNN, the president smirked.

Trump arrived late for Saturday's meeting during the Group of Seven summit of leading industrialized nations being held in Quebec.

"We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", they said in the statement.

Such a summit would be the third such meeting of Trump and Putin since Trump took office a year ago.

"He must mean there are 10 things on which we totally disagree", the diplomat said.

What is feasible with a territory the size of Northern Ireland is not necessarily feasible with the whole UK. The pro-EU Best For Britain claimed the UK's backstop plan was "dead on arrival" in Brussels.

The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the official's remarks about Trump.

"I would say that the G8 is a more meaningful group than the G7, absolutely", Trump said.

"They understand that. They know it".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau insists the Trump hard line will only hurt the U.S.

President Donald Trump has opened his second day at an worldwide summit at a breakfast discussion on gender equality.

The summit in Quebec, Canada, saw Mr Trump clash with European leaders over Russia, US tariffs on steel and the Iran nuclear deal before it had even formally begun. Canada, Mexico and the European Union all threatened retaliatory tariffs after their exemption status was lifted.

Trudeau has made the issue of gender equality a priority for the gathering.

Exiting a world summit with characteristic bravado, President Donald Trump delivered a stark warning Saturday to America's trading partners not to counter his decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

But details are scant so far, and clear differences are remaining.

The agreement was a robust response to counteract the hostile actions of nations such as Russian Federation, which interfered in the elections of the United States and some European Union countries through internet sites and social media.
