President Trump arrived in Quebec on Friday for the G7 summit, where he is set to meet face-to-face with America's closest allies as tensions rise over his administration's new tariffs. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that Trump's claims that the tariffs were necessary for national security purposes were "insulting and totally unacceptable," and Trump's recent comments led French President Emmanuel Macron to warn that summit members could exclude the U.S. from the end-of-meeting joint statement. Trump was supposed to meet with Macron first thing after landing in Quebec, but the meeting is "no longer on the books." Before departing for the summit Friday morning, Trump issued a call to reinstate Russia to the group, further stoking tensions.
