Allez Macron ! French president fires G-7 warning shot at Trump: "These 6 countries represent values...."

And so the G7 becomes the G6 + 1. French president Macron warns Trump that the G7 - minus the United States - is willing to sign an agreement without the US. Trump is now openly attacking (the poor lamb feels "hurt") Canadian PM Trudeau, Macron and others and will leave the summit one day early.
