Germany's Merkel calls for common EU refugee policy

After hearing Canadian prime minister's comments vowing to retaliate for U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum during a news conference, Trump tweeted that Trudeau had made "false statements", and White House officials had harsh criticism for Trudeau during the Sunday morning news programs.

Nevertheless, she vowed to continue to work on the often-fractious relationship with Trump's White House.

US President Donald Trump left the summit early to attend a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and tweeted on Saturday that he had asked US representatives not to endorse the final communique because of the disagreements on trade.

The calamitous summit ended in disarray after Trump broadsided his allies by disavowing a joint statement the United States had agreed to. Trump focused his conversation with Macron on German trade for about 15 minutes in the one-hour meeting. But differences remain on how to balance French President Emmanuel Macron's call for more solidarity in Europe. Shinzo Abe of Japan looks on with a world-weary expression. The source did not say Trump explicitly said he wanted all German-made cars out of the US.

Other G-7 countries lobbied unsuccessfully at the summit for the USA to reverse its tariffs on imported steel and aluminium imports.

And given how not everyone was able to stomach the little that they did see of Leto's Joker makes it even more confusing. Warner Bros. seems to have a profound misunderstanding of what many viewers want, as evidenced by films like Batman v.

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.

According to Merkel, the return of Russian Federation in the G8 format is possible with visible progress in the implementation of the Minsk agreements. Kudlow admitted to CNN on Sunday that Trump had "compromised on the communique" but changed his mind later, seeing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's appear vindicated after the summit. He explained that "with regret", Canada will impose "equivalent" retaliatory tariffs on the US, effective July 1. "They don't take our farm products", Mr Trump complained at the news conference.

Merkel also commented on the statement of the US President, informs Bloomberg.

Berlin, Germany―World Trade Organization chief Roberto Azevedo warned Monday against a damaging "escalation" of trade tensions between the United States and other major economies, following a divisive G7 summit.

"International cooperation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks", Macron said in a statement.
