Trump greets United States ambassador to Canada with cringe-worthy cheek

"I appreciate, you know, Justin has agreed to cut all tariffs, all trade barriers between Canada and the United States, so I'm very happy", Trump said with a smile.

Earlier, he welcomed President Trump to the summit with a warm handshake.

Trump, who repeated that his tariffs are meant to protect USA industry and workers from unfair worldwide competition, said he had suggested to the other G7 leaders that all trade barriers, including tariffs and subsidies, be eliminated.

"If they retaliate they're making a mistake ..."

"We will continue to demonstrate that we're interested in defending Canadian interests and, on top of that, it turns out I'm defending American interests because these tariffs they're putting forward are going to hurt American workers as well", Trudeau said Thursday.

"President Trump is targeting the dairy sector because he wants to dump USA dairy into Canada", Lampron told The Canadian Press, adding that Canada imports five times more dairy from the US than it exports.

"International law prohibits the acquisition of part or all of another state's territory through coercion or force", former President Barack Obama and other world leaders said in a statement at the time.

He has called Trump's imposition of the tariffs "irresponsible" and "insulting" because the two countries have fought as allies in Second World War, Korea and Afghanistan.

And at the same time, the USA president seems more at home with autocrats than with Washington's traditional allies.

Trump updated reporters on his view of the NAFTA negotiations, which have recently stalled with several major items still left to be sorted out.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said: "We are in agreement that a return of Russian Federation to the G7 can not happen unless substantial progress is made in terms of the problems with Ukraine".

The series of snubs and demands from Trump - in combination with other long-simmering disagreements with key USA allies - prompted speculation that the US would be left out of the joint communique with the other G-7 leaders.

Vice President Mike Pence told Trudeau he would have to agree to that before Trump would agree to meet him.

Trump also predicts a positive outcome, emphasizing, his "good relationship" with "my friend" Macron, despite what he called "a little test" on trade.

LATE NIGHTThe leaders worked late into the night on Friday at the luxurious and tightly secured riverside hotel where the summit is being held, with the White House tweeting a photo showing the leaders huddled around a coffee table at 11:20 p.m. ET, looking at what appeared to be a draft document marked up with highlighter.

The two men also traded jibes on Twitter in the build-up to the summit in Canada, which has been soured by Trump's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum exports from the European Union.

The president defended the "national security" rationale for the tariffs. He says gender equality must "cut through" everything the G-7 does. Then he tried to ease tension with friendly banter and vague claims of progress in trade talks.

The summit comes amid the imposition of U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs affecting all nations including Washington's NAFTA and European Union partners.

He said: "The United States has been taken advantage of for decades and decades and we can't do that anymore".
