We’ll honour pledges made at ‘difficult’ G7, says Theresa May

Trudeau had said after Trump's exit that Canada would retaliate against US tariffs. "I don't understand the obsession with trade relations with Canada", he said on Fox's "Sunday Morning Futures", given that Canada is the biggest single buyer of American goods and services in the world.

Trudeau said it was "inconceivable" that the U.S could see Canada - one of its closest allies and a longtime supplier of steel and other metals - as a national security threat.

Ottawa has announced dollar-for-dollar retaliation on the USA imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada.

"He followed up by asking why the United States should "allow countries to continue to make "massive trade surpluses", asserting that it is "not fair to the people of America" and that the USA is suffering under a "$800 billion trade deficit".

Trump claimed America was obliged to levy tariffs as it has been exploited as the world's "piggy bank" under existing arrangements, but his counterparts were equally determined to protect "rules-based" worldwide trade.

North America will host the World Cup in 2026
With the tournament expanding by 50 per cent, voters were apparently wary of the country handling such a large-scale competition. Kraft's Gillette Stadium, home to the Patriots and MLS's New England Revolution, becomes a favourite to host 2026 matches.

Heading into the leaders' summit in La Malbaie, Que., there were deep concerns the G7 alliance was fast becoming a G6 plus one because of a widening gulf between the US and the rest of the group in key areas such as climate and trade. "And if it's not fixed, we're not going to deal with these countries".

The US team would not countenance signing off on a pledge to implement the Paris Climate accord, which Trump's Washington wants no part of.

The president's move to reject the communique contradicted a statement from Trudeau earlier, in which the prime minister announced "we have released a joint communique by all seven countries".

"PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he 'will not be pushed around.' Very dishonest & weak", Trump wrote.

Trump's post G7 tweets also revisited an old bugbear - the funding of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military alliance. "Let us be serious and worthy of our people", Macron's office said in a statement obtained by Le Monde.

Net Neutrality Repeal Goes Into Effect
But many advocates expect that sooner or later, broadband providers will act in ways that would have violated the former rules. FCC chairman Ajit Pai joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss why he thinks the rollback is "tremendously positive" for consumers.

She also said the European Union would "act" against the USA trade measures.

"Stay calm, keep moving forward, be the adult and come back with meaningful and substantive policies at the table that makes sense to arrive at an appropriate NAFTA outcome". "Europe will always be driven by our shared values of freedom, democracy, the rule of law and the respect of human rights, and we will continue to be at the heart of the global agenda, promoting jobs, growth, free and fair trade, clean environment, gender equality, and development aid".

Around an hour later, he returned to Twitter with a final, parting shot.

In an interview Sunday on German public television, Merkel also says European leaders won't be "taken advantage of" on trade. "We must put the American worker first!" But even those vested in Canadian trade are not expected to come to Trudeau's defense as long as the USA economy is roaring.

The editorial board criticized Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro's comment Sunday that there is a "special place in hell" for Trudeau, a remark he made after the summit ended.

Farmers block oil refineries and depots across France
Total's initiative to import palm oil for its biofuel plant was just "the last straw", the representative added. All in all, 16 sites were blocked on Monday, according to France's largest farm union FNSEA.

He continued, "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference".
