Twitter despairs as Trump blames Canada for White House burning during War of 1812

Before departing for the 44th G7 summit, which is being held in Quebec, Canada, American President Donald Trump called for end to Russian expulsion from G7 grouping. I have been Russia's worst nightmare.

This year's G7 summit comes at a time, when leaders of seven major economies view the current worldwide order as a historic division between Washington and its major allies in North America, Europe and Asia. In what was apparently a "testy phone call" about US tariffs on steel and aluminum imports on May 25, Trump tried to get historical with Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau, according to CNN.

Earlier this month, the White House announced that it would no longer exempt Canada, the European Union, and Mexico from punishing tariffs on steel and aluminum, citing national security and concerns of unfairness.

The top German diplomat specifically referenced Trump's decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and Paris climate accords, as well as the imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminum, as unfathomable measures to take against his nation's closest allies.

Trump has also feuded on Twitter this week with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron, who are both attending this year's summit.

Trump shocked the summit earlier today by calling for Russian Federation to be allowed to return to the G7 after it was kicked out in 2014 for invading Ukraine and annexing Crimea. Canada vowed to hit the US with almost $17 billion worth of tariffs on various goods from the USA, such as toilet paper and maple syrup, and the European Union announced planned duties as well.

They also renewed their commitment to the fight against climate change and to promote democratic values, free and open trade, and gender equality. "But he doesn't bring up the fact that they charge us up to 300% on dairy - hurting our Farmers, killing our Agriculture", the United States president said.

Friday's trade session, where G7 allies planned to confront the USA president over trade tariffs, had "some emotions" but was civilized and diplomatic, said the official who followed the talks. The raid, made in revenge for the American burning of York - present-day Toronto - the previous year, saw the British briefly capture and set fire to the US capital.

"All of these countries have been taking advantage of the United States on trade", he said before flying out.

Trump's attitude towards the global summit is already causing some reaction online.

Trump may well be distracted by preparations for his June 12 summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, which will be in Singapore immediately after the rich-world talking shop in Canada.

Trump said as he departed the White House for the summit in Quebec.

His stance will receive such a hostile reception from the other leaders of the world's richest democracies that some observers have suggested renaming the G7 summit the G6+1. "Maybe it doesn't bother the American president to be isolated, but it doesn't bother us to be six if need be".

Trump repeatedly praised Putin during the 2016 campaign.

Mr. Trump's chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, played down the feud at a White House briefing Wednesday.

A French presidential source said Trump's proposal did not seem "coherent" in view of the latest economic sanctions imposed by the United States on Moscow.

Previous G7 summits have seen large-scale anti-globalisation protests, but Trump was a main target of the demonstration as masked anarchists set fire to USA flags and those of other G7 nations.

Summits of the Group of Seven powers are often marred by anti-globalist demonstrations in the streets of the host city.
