G7 Summit: Trump Furious Over Canada and European Allies

The US President United States has made his American allies that include EU (European Union) and Canada unhappy by expressing his rage on them. The president also backed out of the joint G7 communique after Justin Treaudu’s press conference where he announced to increase tariff on American imports. Furious Over EU and Canada After G7 Summit

Earlier it was Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury that made that made Trump furious and now it is his European allies and Canada.

It seems that the recent G7 summit that took place in Quebec, Canada from June 8 to June 9, 2018, was a beginning of what might be deteriorating relations between America and its allies, like EU and Canada.

Trump’s backlash came after Canadian Premier Justin Treaudu said in a press conference to increase the tariff on imports from the United States. The Canadian PM told that he did not want to punish the American workers, but his job was to protect Canadians.

“Canadians are polite and reasonable, but we will also not be pushed around,” said Treaudu.

Canada and EU countries are considering to increase tariffs on US imports as the United States imposed 25% tariff on steel, 10% tariff on Aluminium imports from EU, Canada, and Mexico from June 1.

Trump also responded that the US increased tariff in response to Canada’s 270% on dairy.

Trump’s Criticism on EU

Donald Trump’s post-G7 Summit fury was not limited to the Canadian PM Justin Treaudu only. He also slammed the EU members and the US allies taking extraordinary advantage out of their friendship with America.

In his Tweet where POTUS has lamented about Germany for spending only 1 percent of its GDP on NATO, he also said: “change is coming.” Well, it is not sure what kind of change Mr. Trump is heralding.

POTUS also opined that EU should have spent more of it’s $151 billion surpluses on the military.

A Criticism on Fair Trade

Trump’s backlash was not limited to the fellows who attended the G7 Summit. He termed the fair trade as fool trade as it was not reciprocal and only helping EU and Canada make trade surpluses.

Now it seems that post G7 summit clash between US and EU might shift the direction of America’s relationship with its other western allies.
