In a tweet, Trump accused the U.S. allies of levying "massive tariffs" and creating "non-monetary barriers."
@realDonaldTrump: Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the U.S. massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers. The EU trade surplus with the U.S. is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out. Look forward to seeing them tomorrow.
French President Emmanuel Macron in a tweet had threatened to exclude U.S. from a joint statement issued every year at the G-7 summit.
"The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a 6 country agreement if need be. Because these 6 countries represent values, they represent an economic market which has the weight of history behind it and which is now a true international force," Macron tweeted.
