After Trump trade spat, UK's May warns against unilateral action

This came after Trudeau had said that Canada would "move forward with retaliatory measures" starting from July 1 in response to Trump's decision to impose 25 percent trade tariffs on aluminum and steel on its closest allies Canada, Mexico, and the European Union.

The US president was rebuffed on this request, with the other leaders explaining, and rightly so, that the cause for the "expulsion" of Russian Federation was due to its invasion, occupation and annexation of Crimea in 2014.

Participation of Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the EC, at the G7 Summit, in Canada Jean-Claude Juncker, Angela Merkel, Theresa May, Giuseppe Conte, Donald Tusk, Emmanuel Macron, Donald Trump, Justin Trudeau, Shinzō Abe Date: 08/06/2018. The French presidency had earlier condemned "fits of anger".

Canada's House of Commons adopted an unusual unanimous resolution Monday backing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after he was harshly criticized by President Donald Trump, while Americans lent support to their northern neighbor on Twitter through a special hashtag #ThankCanada.

The G7 summit is coming down to the wire.

While making no direct criticism of Mr Trump, Mrs May told MPs: "This was a hard summit with, at times, some very candid discussions, but the conclusion I draw is that it is only through continued dialogue that we can find ways to work together to resolve the challenges we face. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

The President tweeted on Monday that America was paying disproportionately more towards the costs of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (Nato) than fellow members.

"Change is coming!" he warned.

Prime Minister Trudeau on the other hand, did not balk at the statements but instead remained professional and mature - which is to be expected from a leader of one of the most respected and democratic countries in the world.
