Germany's Merkel calls for unified European approach on migration

Germany's Merkel calls for unified European approach on migration

Trump said on Twitter in March that if the European Union drops its "horrific barriers & tariffs on USA products going in, we will likewise drop ours", but that he would otherwise "tax cars". And I said 'What's this all about?

His comment sparked a new diplomatic spat between Trudeau and the Trump administration and led Merkel to criticize the US president's handling of the matter.

"We asked him about that", she told Anne Will, adding that his answers "did not sound convincing" to her.

The European leader-famed for negotiating compromise without political histrionics-gave an uncharacteristically candid and combative assessment of relations with Trump as she spoke to German channel ARD, after last week's G-7 summit.

Turning to Russia, Merkel said she could imagine Moscow re-joining the G7 format at some point, but there first had to be progress in the implementation of the peace plan for Ukraine.

"There are still good reasons to continue our fight [aimed at keeping close transatlantic partnership], even though we can not just rely on it anymore", she added.

The incident brought back memories of the 2016 Trooping the Colour when William, 36, was scolded by Queen Elizabeth to stand up. Despite giving birth to Prince Louis so recently, Kate Middleton has attended two major royal occasions.

The news comes as Merkel called for tolerance amid a wave of support for anti-immigration parties across Europe, with the Chancellor saying the current political crop's migration policy would act as a "litmus test" for the future of the continent.

"Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!"

"Canada does have a very big advantage over us". Canada are hosting the leaders of the UK, Italy, the US, France, Germany and Japan for the two day summit, in the town of La Malbaie.

The US and its allies have been locked in a bitter dispute of trade tariffs and perceived trade "inequality" for quite some time. In late May, Washington slapped its allies with import tariffs on steel and aluminum after it failed to win concessions from its trading partners. The move immediately provoked an angry reaction from the European Union, which already presented its own list of American goods that will be taxed in retaliation to the USA move.

This year, quite a bit happened like US President Donald Trump asking for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the summit although Merkel was having none of it. Russian Federation was kicked out in 2014 because of its occupation of Crimea.

Trump cited national security in imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum tariffs, a move that sparked tension at last week's summit of Group of Seven leaders.
