Angela Merkel on Trump’s G7 show: It’s ‘depressing’

G-7 split over Trump's call to readmit Russia

"The situation isn't very nice", Merkel told German public television in a lengthy interview.

Mr Trump also said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive auto industry, throwing the G7's efforts to show a united front into disarray.

She said the European Union would "act" against the USA trade measures, which European leaders regard as going against the rules of the World Trade Organization.

President Donald Trump shakes hands with Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a bilateral meeting at the G-7 summit in in Charlevoix, Quebec, Canada, June 8, 2018.

"There is a special place in hell for any for leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door and that's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference, that's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did", Navarro told "Fox News Sunday".

In a series of tweets from Singapore Monday, Trump kept up the tirade while contending that "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".

Marcelo Has His Say On Cristiano Ronaldo's Real Madrid Future
The front page of Diario Record has a photograph of Ronaldo with the headline: "Ronaldo will leave Real - Irreversible decision ". I don't want to take over from the unique moment of my teammates who deserve it, who are real champions.

Looking ahead to the next major diplomatic encounter with Trump - a meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance leaders in July - "it won't be easy", Merkel said.

"We are convinced that a modernization is perfectly possible, we are convinced that common sense will triumph", she said. A Madawaska, Maine, mill pumps pulp from the Canadian side of the border to be made into paper on the U.S. side.

He was reacting to Trudeau's declaration that Canadians would "not be pushed around" and would hit back at punishing USA tariffs on metal imports with "equivalent tariffs".

"The withdrawal by tweet is, of course, sobering and a bit depressing", she said.

Merkel suggested the tensions with Washington would continue to fuel a reappraisal of Europe's security needs.

She said that the European countries will not be "taken advantage of" in terms of trade and that they would "act" against the US trade measures, which are considered as going against the World Trade Organization's rules.

The new device can also do typical Alexa tasks, such as playing "Jeopardy!" or fetching the weather, even when the TV is off. There are also apps available in the USA for ESPN, Fox Now, Showtime, Starz, PlayStation Vue, CBS All Access, and NBC.

In that regard, she pledged to spend more on defense.

"Germany pays 1 percent (slowly) of GDP towards North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, while we pay 4 percent of a MUCH larger GDP", he wrote, saying that the U.S. was protecting Europe and being "clobbered on trade" in return. The European Union, he added "should pay much more for Military!" Under an agreement reached among North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries in 2014, members pledged to reach the 2 percent goal by 2024. The U.S. president is staring back, arms crossed, as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe looks on with his arms also crossed.

"The issue of tariffs can not be looked at in isolation, we must also think about issues such as subsidies", she said.

A New York Times reporter who was present at the Trudeau press conference tweeted Sunday that he didn't understand what remarks Kudlow was referring to when the economic adviser said Trudeau stabbed the U.S.in the back.

"Canada has already raised cases at the WTO and at NAFTA, and we will retaliate", she said.
