U.S. President Donald Trump lashed out at Canada and the European Union on Friday and said he plans to leave a meeting with leaders of the Group of Seven nations early as fears of a trade war ratcheted higher.Trump, who aides said has little interest in multilateralism, resumed his tirade against Canada and "unfair trade deals" with G7 countries early Friday morning.By departing early, the U.S. leader will miss talks about climate change and clean energy, and be out of the country by the time Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other leaders begin closing news conferences likely to be laden with criticism of U.S. trade policy.Although Trump said the tariffs are necessary to protect U.S. industry, Canada and the European Union have denounced them as illegal and are preparing retaliatory measures.
