On Canada and the summit: "It has worked out to be so wonderful".

When the topic of a trade war flaring up as a result of hiked tariffs that Trump promised to enforce, he declared that European countries and Canada need the USA more than the country needs them.

Mr. Trump and his classmates listened to the radio as President John F. Kennedy warned Khrushchev of American action if he did not pull back.

"It's unknown territory in the truest sense, but I really feel confident", he said.

Trumps remarks came after an uncomfortable overnight visit to the G7 where he and the other world leaders struggled to bridge their differences on trade and other matters. I blame our past leaders. "If there's a peace prize that anybody should get, we should get it", he quipped. (Carlos Barria/Reuters) North Korea handing over its nuclear weapons, however, is nearly certainly not going to happen at this meeting.

The US must hold to its demand for comprehensive denuclearization of North Korea to uphold the validity of the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT), deny North Korea the ability to use the nuclear threat to intimidate South Korean and Japanese allies, and eliminate risks of nuclear proliferation to other bad actors.

"We appreciate working together with North Korea".

One benefit of Singapore from the North Korean point of view is that there will probably not be any anti-North Korea protests during Kim's stay.

Beijing, the North's only major ally and key economic lifeline, is also ready for a peace agreement, according to William Overholt, an Asia expert and senior fellow at Harvard University, and could "come down very hard on the North" if Pyongyang refuses to abandon its nukes despite potential US offers of a peace treaty, security guarantees, diplomatic recognition and economic assistance.

On bringing Russian Federation back into the G7: "I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in".

"I will be on a mission of peace and will carry in my heart the hearts of millions of people, all over the world".

"I do think it's incumbent on us and the media and everybody else to keep this issue of human rights alive".

"But we have to, I think, remind people there are a couple of hundred thousand people in brutal death camps. I think it would be good for all of the countries of the current G7".

The president appeared to leverage those strong relationships and convince countries to agree with the idea of curbing tariffs and government subsidies altogether.

"It's got to change". At a time when students were used to air raid drills, the fears of these cadets went beyond the general dread of a nuclear exchange. And tariffs are going to come way down, because people can not continue to do that.

The administration initially exempted Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, the European Union, Mexico and South Korea from the duties, but imposed the tariffs on Canada, the European Union and Mexico last week, prompting retaliatory measures. "Both of those things could happen".
