Macron uses laws and sausages to deflect Trump call question

Emmanuel Macron waits for the arrival of Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prior to their meeting at the Elysee Palace in Paris Tuesday

"I think it will be very positive", Trump said, without giving details.

Trump was reacting to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who said Saturday that Canada would retaliate for Trump's proposed new tariffs. "$800 Billion Trade Deficit..." He then took questions from reporters for almost 20 minutes, where he threatened to terminate the North American Free Trade Agreement if he can't make a better deal with America's neighbors.

In an interview Sunday on German public television, Merkel also says European leaders won't be "taken advantage of" on trade.

The leaders of the world's richest countries came together Friday to smooth over their differences - especially with U.S. President Donald Trump - and to demonstrate they can still work together.

The two-day summit in Canada has been marred by fears of a trade war and tit-for-tat exchanges of hostile tweets, with United States trading partners furious over Mr Trump's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from the EU, Canada and Mexico as part of his "America First" agenda. Look at what Macron did to Trump's hand.

Combative remarks from French President Emmanuel Macron may have stirred Trump's competitive spirit, and now it appears that the US President will use the meeting as an opportunity to double-down on his uncompromising trade policies.

The early exit also means he will be gone before allies begin closing news conferences likely to be laden with criticism of the United States stance on trade and Mr Trump's abrupt suggestion yesterday that Russian Federation should be re-admitted to the group.

Trump argued that Moscow was too important to isolate.

Moscow was expelled from the rich nations club, which sees itself as a guarantor of rules-based order and the global economy, over its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region.

A German official said that if Trump declines to sign a communique, it won't be the end of the G-7, but it would be a worrisome signal.

USA trading partners have been furious over President Donald Trump's decision last week to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico as part of his "America First" agenda.

During a news conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Macron was asked about a CNN report on Monday saying that a phone call between him and Trump last week had been "terrible".

He arrived behind schedule and planned an early leave from the G7 meeting today for Singapore, where he will attend the highly anticipated summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
