Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, June 10, 2018

U.S. President Donald Trump has retracted his endorsement of the joint communique issued at the end of the G7 summit, accusing Canada of "dishonesty". He said that other countries were imposing "massive tariffs" on the US. The joint communique, advocating a "rules-based trading system", was reached despite tension over US tariffs on steel and aluminium imports. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau vowed afterwards to press ahead with retaliatory tariffs on 1 July. Speaking at a news conference, he described as "insulting" Mr Trump's decision to invoke national security concerns to justify steel and aluminium tariffs.

"It would be with regret but it would be with absolute clarity and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on 1 July," Mr Trudeau said. "Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around."

The EU said it would stick to the joint communique despite Mr Trump's decision.

"We stand by the commitments made in the G7 communique," a senior UK government source said.

ANGELA MERKEL'S TENSE INSTAGRAM PERFECTLY SUMS UP TRUMP'S TERRIBLE G7

www.vanityfair.com

On Saturday morning, Chancellor Merkel posted a photo to her Instagram of the whole group in what looks like a heated debate, Trump with his arms crossed and Merkel leaning in front of his table as if she'd like to leap over it.

Our President would rather pal around with dictators Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin than with America's decades long allies.

But you have to say why.

I can agree with you, maybe, kinda, sort of ... but only up to a certain point.

Europe and America share the same western democratic values (at least pre-Trump), but there are also big differences between America and Europe.

So saying immigration will hurt Europe in the same way as it will hurt America is a one size fits all logic that doesn't work in reality.

Vladimir Putin should get an Oscar just for keeping a straight face.

during kudlows' meltdown on meet the press, in the context of tariffs and violated trade agreements, he was asked about the chinese telephone deal (ZTE) and he said that trump made those concessions as a favor to the chinese president...Now Here Is Why We're Screwed, did chuck todd say, wait a minute, if he did that as a 'favor' how can we not assume that the favor was returned by granting Ivankunt all those chinese trademarks?
trump made a royal ass of himself in canada and I think it's gonna haunt him

it's impossible to cite another regions immigration experiences as a blueprint for what should ,or not, be done in another region. you'll have an opinion but it would be unrealistic to expect a predictable outcome. there are as many people fighting each other on the indian subcontinent as there are in all of europe..over religion. maroons. and i don't think that the koreans, chinese and japanese have much love for each other. dwindling space and resources and human nature that can always find a way to excuse itself and we'll all be europe bye and bye

Trump will seek help providing relief to Li'l Kim, and the response from those countries he calls could be the same: "Who again is this? From where? Put President Obama or Senator McCain on the line, please, so I can talk with them. I'll wait..."

Being all "woke" and all now to the situation have you ever considered WHY there are so many immigrants and refugees? Instead of just building walls and ignoring the problems hoping they will go away maybe you should consider spending all that extra "wall money" we have to help stabilize the countries and people that are suffering and desperately trying to escape the violence.

Nulli will be woke when they finally pry Donald Trump from his cold, dead hands.
