No formal meeting between Trump and UK's May at G7: United Kingdom official

Trump reportedly responded by saying, "Didn't you guys burn down the White House?" during the May 25 call.

Before President Donald Trump sits down with a third-generation North Korean autocrat, he will face what may well turn out to be a tougher crowd - some of America's oldest allies.

"Let me be clear: These tariffs are totally unacceptable", Trudeau said at a pres conference announcing retaliatory measures.

Mexico imports so much USA pork - almost one-third of what's consumed - that the government says it will waive tariffs on up to 350,000 tons of pork imported from other nations to avoid destabilising the market.

When Trudeau won power, the bedrock of his foreign policy was to return Canada to its traditional multilateral leanings - support for institutions such as the United Nations, NATO, the G7 and the worldwide trading order.

He had hoped to put the focus on jobs, security concerns, cleaning up the world's oceans and empowering women.

In even blunter language, Mr. Macron told a joint news conference that the US tariffs on European, Canada and Mexican steel and aluminum are "unilateral and illegal" and predicted that they will hurt global growth. But the White House has signaled no change in plans. Now, we're going to get to experience Donald Trump speaking to six other world leaders, possibly even more if others end up showing up to this meeting, and embarrassing us there.

Regardless of what the rest of the world might think, Trump is deadly serious about reforming a global trade system he believes is fundamentally broken, Kudlow said.

Trump economic advisor Larry Kudlow, however, framed the trade spat as a "family quarrel" which he said would be "worked out", while adding that his administration "will do what is necessary to protect the United States, its businesses and its workforce". Trump's move to impose tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum from the European Union, Canada and Mexico seems to have been the last straw, however.

"Canada's position is and always has been that the trilateral approach is actually better for Canada, Mexico and the United States".

Trump has spent much of this year engaged in a series of escalating trade wars with a number of countries, including US allies Canada, Mexico, and members of the European Union like France. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin declined to sign a joint G-7 statement last week during a meeting with other finance ministers, in a possible prelude of what was to come. They're not admiring us.

"I know we're going to have some very, very frank conversations quite clearly around the table", Trudeau told Global TV, adding he would convey Canada's displeasure over the tariffs personally when he met Trump in Quebec. "We can't engage in a trade war against friends", Mr. Macron said.

Officials from some of the U.S.'s closest allies said their level of interaction and coordination on tariff retaliation is exceptional.
