The meeting tomorrow and Saturday in Charlevoix, Quebec, will be the first chance G7 leaders have had to confront Mr Trump in person since United States tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union were imposed last week.
Asked whether Trump did not care about "being isolated" from other world leaders, Macron responded, "Maybe, but nobody is forever".
French President Emmanuel Macron, who is known to share a hot and cold relation with his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump, said on Tuesday, June 5, that his phone calls with the latter and other worldwide leaders were like sausages and it is not better to explain what is inside them, Reuters reported.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the leaders would air their unhappiness in what he called a polite cordial context and expressed optimism about the summit.
Trump has spent much of this year engaged in a series of escalating trade wars with a number of countries, including US allies Canada, Mexico, and members of the European Union like France. "I think we would be making an error if we said we are ready to give up everything, not to talk about the Paris Accord or climate, or trade, just to have that signature".
Macron also said today, that the USA should not prevent other nations from keeping the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, warning Washington against pushing Iran itself out of the agreement. "The six other nations of the G7 represent a market that is larger than the American market", Macron said.
Trudeau reportedly asked Trump to justify his view that the tariffs were a national security issue.
