Trump’s ultimatum to G7 allies: Stop tariffs or we’ll cut off trade – nypost

“That’s the way it should be – no tariffs, no barriers and no subsidies,” he said at a press conference in Charlevoix, Quebec, just days after imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports that infuriated the nation’s biggest trading partners.

“I did suggest it, and I guess they’re going to go back to the drawing board and figure it out,” Trump added.

He tightened the screws on Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan, all of which apply high tariffs to U.S. goods.
