The White House said President Donald Trump will cut short his visit with the Group of Seven economic powers in Canada this weekend, announcing that he would to leave the summit early after sparring with other world leaders on the issue of trade. "Prime Minister Trudeau is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the U.S. and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things," Trump posted.


"The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a 6 country agreement if need be," Macron posted on Twitter. "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 international force."

"No leader is eternal," Macron wrote earlier.

Trump would rather pal around with his dictator buddies Putin and Kim Jong-un, than work with our Allies.

Pres Trump knows the outcome of this G-7 will not be a happy photo op for him. So he decided to turn tail and leave early.

The G-7 is nothing more than a group of B-List national leaders all trying to figure out a way to scam more money out of the U.S. to keep their jobs for one more term. And why does the European Union have a seat on the G-7 as well as their individual countries? It seems that either the individual countries would have a seat/vote or the EU would have one vote as a whole. At least that would be somewhat fair in that combined, the other 6 nations economically add up to something close to the US. The US has footed the bill for the rest of them since WWII. AND they want to have a distinct advantage over the US in trade? Face it, the EU's business model is based on screwing the US. At least the Japanese were honest about it. Canada is a complete joke. Regardless of what taxes are levied at the negotiating table, Canada charges their own citizens fees for anything they order from the US.
