U.S. President leaves G7 in disarray
The U.S. President left the G7 summit after a fruitless debate on trade tariffs.
Trump rejected the joint communique so Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Japan did no issue a statement as they could not reach a consensus on trade.
The U.S. President blamed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for high tariffs and called him “dishonest and weak”. He also attacked the trade policies of other countries.
