Amid tariff fight, Trump faces tough crowd at G7

Print | Front Page | Email this story

WASHINGTON (AP) — Before President Donald Trump sits down next week with a notorious dictator, he will face what may turn out to be a tougher crowd — some of America's oldest allies.

With his new tariffs escalating U.S. isolation, Trump heads to Canada on Friday for a meeting of the Group of Seven industrialized nations. The White House expects a chilly reception from Canada and Western allies, already frustrated over Trump's withdrawal from the Paris climate accord and the Iran-nuclear agreement.

Anticipating a tense two days in Quebec, Trump has complained about having to attend the summit, particularly since it comes just before his high-stakes meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un. That's according to two people with knowledge of his thinking. But the White House has signaled no change in plans.
