It’s something of a political Rorschach test as Trump’s supporters will surely see the moment as a show of American strength, while the president’s critics will argue it is proof of bad diplomacy.

President Trump ruffled some feathers after he took a tough stance on tariffs imposed by other nations on the United States, saying the days of the world taking advantage of the U.S. are over.

“Just left the @G7 Summit in beautiful Canada. Great meetings and relationships with the six Country Leaders especially since they know I cannot allow them to apply large Tariffs and strong barriers to…U.S.A. Trade,” Trump tweeted. They fully understand where I am coming from. After many decades, fair and reciprocal Trade will happen!”

He added, “The United States will not allow other countries to impose massive Tariffs and Trade Barriers on its farmers, workers and companies. While sending their product into our country tax free. We have put up with Trade Abuse for many decades — and that is long enough.”
