World Leaders Take Turns Attacking Donald Trump After Disastrous G7 Summit

President Donald Trump might be focused on his historic meeting with Kim Jong-Un but world leaders are still reeling from the President’s poor showing at the G7 Summit.

Trump left the summit early on Saturday but not before he lobbied on behalf of restoring Russia’s position which was stripped from the country over its annexation of Crimea. Trump was said to have lobbied hard to have Vladimir Putin’s position within the “G8 summit” restored.

President Trump then Twitter raged against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after Trudeau once again clearly stated Canada’s trade policies with the United States.

Former Trudeau foreign policy adviser Roland Paris didn’t take kindly to the attack, calling Trump “a pathetic little man-child.”

Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland offered a more polite response to Trump’s attacks on Trudeau.

“In terms of the approach that governments choose to take, Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries.”

The French Attack

While French President Emmanuel Macron’s office didn’t directly name Trump, they did release a statement that was obviously targeted at the 45th POTUS.

“We spent two days to obtain a text and commitments. We will stand by them and anyone who would depart from them, once their back was turned, shows their incoherence and inconsistency. International cooperation cannot depend on fits of anger or little words.”

The Belgian Sense Of Humor

Former Belgian Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt posted a now infamous G-7 photo with the following caption: “Just tell us what Vladimir has on you. Maybe we can help.”

How did Trump respond to all of this? His advisors hit the talk show circuit on Sunday in an attempt to convince viewers that Trump needed to show his strength ahead of his North Korea summit with Kim Jong Un.

Instead, Trump’s attacks on world leaders have shown that he is incapable of balancing diplomacy with hardline politics.
