EU to Implement Counter-Measures Against US Tariffs

Describing her impression from Trump's behavior at the summit as "disillusionment", Merkel said that "we will not allow ourselves to be deceived again and again" and that Europe will not permit the American president to do "whatever he pleases".

Merkel, whose office over the weekend released a photo of her leaning over a table before a seated Trump at a meeting with G7 leaders and aides, said she had "tried hard to find a compromise and we fought hard for it. this was an important announcement".

Elisabeth Wehling, a US-based political linguistics researcher, tweeted that the body language clearly pointed to Trump dominating the scene. She further said that the USA tariffs were "illegal and unjustified" and Canada did not believe in using "ad hominem attacks".

"We will try to see if we can stop this from happening... And then hope that the European Union will respond again in the same unity". At a press conference following the summit, Trudeau repeated his earlier description of United States trade tariffs as "insulting" and vowed retaliatory measures would come in July.

In an attack on Canada's "very dishonest and weak" Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Mr Trump revealed he was tearing up the agreed communique from the G7 gathering in Charlevoix, Canada.

Canada's Justin Trudeau and other leaders had given closing press conferences and announced a US-backed joint statement. The president, en route to Singapore, lashed out at the Canadian leader via Twitter, stating that the US will not endorse the communique.

Nearly 18 months into Trump's presidency, Merkel's comments offered renewed evidence of Germany's struggle to adapt to an upended relationship with the US.

"The withdrawal by tweet is, of course, sobering and a bit depressing as well", she told Germany's Anne Will talk show on Sunday evening.

She also spoke about Trump's suggestion to re-admit Russian Federation to the group. The G-8 was downgraded back to a G-7 following Putin's annexation of Crimea in 2014. Merkel said that while she could imagine such a scenario in the future, Moscow would first have to make progress in putting forth a viable peace plan for the country, Reuters reported.

As the first of two days of meetings in La Malbaie, Quebec ended, the Group of Seven leaders limped toward something that could look like a win, even if it comes far short of the broad communique signed by all attendees that typically comes out of their summits. "Maybe we can help".
