President Donald Trump in a statement criticized Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for being so angry about new USA tariffs by accusing Canada of hurting American dairy farmers. Accordingly, Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission said: "This is a bad day for world trade".
These summits are usually seen as a cheerful and informal demonstration of shared objective and responsibility among the world's richest economies.
Trump, who has vowed to protect US industry and workers from what he describes as unfair global competition as part of an "America First" agenda, is due to hold bilateral meetings with Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron during the summit, Kudlow said.
"Maybe the American president doesn't care about being isolated today, but we don't mind being six, if needs be", Macron added. "Because these 6 countries represent values, they represent an economic market which has the weight of history behind it and which is now a true worldwide force".
Today, the Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, spoke with the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

Mattis also touched on Taiwan, a longstanding dispute between the USA and China. Mattis emphasized that the US military wants more transparency from China.
But since coming to office in January 2017, Trump has pulled the United States out of the Paris climate accord, the Iran nuclear deal and the TPP Pacific free trade deal. They said was an essential forum for finding common ground and resolving differences. "That's the key point".
The War of 1812 was a conflict fought between USA and United Kingdom and their respective allies, when the White House was burnt down by the British. "The impact on Canada and ultimately on workers in the United States won't be a laughing matter". It returned to its original make-up after Russian Federation was expelled from the-then G8 over the annexation of Crimea in 2014.
