Trump’s Economic Adviser Blames Trudeau for ‘Betrayal’ Before North Korea Talks

America Alone?

Trump, who was on his way to Singapore for a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, also issued warnings that the USA was mulling to impose tariffs "on automobiles flooding the U.S. market". The US isn't expected to join separate agreements for cleaner oceans or combating climate change, which the other six nations will sign, Merkel said.

The president says the United States is "pretty close" to an agreement on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and discussing two types of sunset provisions in which any of the countries could leave the deal.

Talks on renegotiating the NAFTA began in August 2017 as Trump threatened to withdraw from the 23-year-old trade deal. The language, however, was strong, he added.

Trump said he pushed for the elimination of trade barriers, including subsidies and tariffs, at the G-7 meeting.

"We're the piggy bank that everybody is robbing".

"The relationship that I've had with the leaders of these countries - I would really rate it, on a scale of zero to 10, I would rate it a 10. I blame our past leaders".

"I did suggest it and people were - I guess they're going to go back to the drawing board and check it out", Trump said.

It was not immediately clear where the new round of aggression would leave the two leaders and their mercurial attempts to find trade peace. "They have no choice". I think they are starting to be committed to a much more fair trade situation for the United States, because it has been treated very, very unfairly....

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday rejected a USA demand for a sunset clause in NAFTA but said he was prepared to compromise on the issue, which is holding up talks to update the 1990s-era pact.

Trudeau also said that Canada will not agree to a "sunset clause" in negotiations for NAFTA.

Medicare reserves seen lasting three years less than prior forecast
During the year, an estimated 174 million people had earnings covered by Social Security and paid payroll taxes on those earnings. That was one of the conclusions from an annual report the trustees of the Social Security and Medicare funds released Tuesday.

Peter Navarro, Trump's trade adviser, directed a series of stinging comments at Trudeau on "Fox News Sunday".

"We win that war a thousand times out of a thousand", he said.

"I heard President Trump say he wants maximum trade and minimum tariffs for G7 members".

Leaders from Canada and the United Kingdom rejected Trump's call to bring Russia back, saying Russian President Vladimir Putin would have to make major changes to be welcomed back.

Macron said he and Trump held "open and direct" discussions, adding that he thought there was a way to get a "win-win" outcome on trade, though details remained unclear. "The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the president". "It's in everyone's interests".

Trump on Friday called for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the G-7 after it was expelled in 2014 for annexing Ukraine's Crimea. But if steps aren't taken, he said, the penalties would be severe.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", he said.

Trump said the leaders discussed the question of Russia's inclusion in the group but reached no conclusion. "I don't understand the obsession with trade relations with Canada", he said, given that Canada is the biggest single buyer of American goods and services in the world.

The G7 leaders also discussed the issue of uncontrolled migration and the threat it poses to national security. A subsequent visit in April this year warranted only a working lunch for the German leader, several days after fellow European Union leader Macron got the full, formal state dinner treatment from Trump.
