Trump exposes the G-7 summit as a total fraud https://t.co/fMe4NeGqmu— American Thinker (@AmericanThinker) June 10, 2018
...You would expect a meeting of the leaders of the most important countries to be concerned about fighting terrorism, reducing taxes and regulations, and reducing trading barriers. That last issue was the one that President Trump focused on, to the dismay of the other attendees who wanted their usual painless photo op where they could virtue signal about women or the environment.
But to their surprise President Trump focused on the important things, reducing global trade barriers, even suggesting the total elimination of all tariffs in all G-7 countries. This would greatly spur economic growth, if agreed to.
But don't expect the media to focus on that. Rather than honestly reporting that Trump focused on our top international economic priority, access to foreign markets, they will portray Trump as a boor and an unenlightened unenvironmentalist. For me, the defining photo was the one the liberal media is peddling of Angela Merkel staring Trump down while Trump, with John Bolton at his side, looks impassive, like Gandalf on the bridge of Khazad-Dum when he told the Balrog, "You shall not pass!"

...U.S.A. Trade. They fully understand where I am coming from. After many decades, fair and reciprocal Trade will happen!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 9, 2018
The United States will not allow other countries to impose massive Tariffs and Trade Barriers on its farmers, workers and companies. While sending their product into our country tax free. We have put up with Trade Abuse for many decades — and that is long enough.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 9, 2018
I am on my way to Singapore where we have a chance to achieve a truly wonderful result for North Korea and the World.

…Create peace and great prosperity for his land. I look forward to meeting him and have a feeling that this one-time opportunity will not be wasted!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 9, 2018
PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, “US Tariffs were kind of insulting” and he “will not be pushed around.” Very dishonest & weak. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 9, 2018
