"There will be no world hegemony if we know how to organize ourselves".
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron say they intend to bluntly tell Donald Trump at the Group of Seven summit on Friday that US trade tariffs on steel and aluminum will hurt American workers and must be reversed.
The summit has gained importance because of growing tensions between the Western allies. -Canada relationship - as well as the effort by Canadian politicians of different stripes to appear united when they press Washington on trade issues. "An opportunity for friends and allies to come together and have a direct conversation".
On Thursday, Macron sent out this tweet, in English, calling out Trump ahead of the G7 Summit in Canada.
USA stocks, apart from those of steel and aluminum producers, have fallen sharply in response to Trump's recent tariff announcements and other actions against trading partners.
Canada in particular has been outraged by Trump's tariffs, taking umbrage at the argument that they were motivated by national security concerns. "American jobs are on the line because of his actions".
Macron was even more emphatic, calling on the other G7 members to resist what he warned was a potential United States drift towards "further isolationism and "crude hegemony". We can't wage a trade war between friends", Emmanuel Macronsaid, adding that he the countries have to remain polite as the U.S. is an ally and "we need them". I'm always the optimist. "Hegemony is the end of the rule of law".
The French president slammed USA counterpart for "unproductive" tariffs and preventing other nations from dealing with Iran.
However, he argued that other countries should be ready to have a "G6 plus one" outcome, sticking to a text that enshrines their common values, even if Trump does not sign it.
"It is simply ridiculous to view any trade with Canada as a national security threat to the US", Mr Trudeau has said of the move.
Last June, the president confirmed that he would remove the us from the Paris climate agreement, fulfilling a campaign promise he had made to voters.
