how she views the growing discord in the g. seven here's part of what she had to say. these are. all issues not great and that is why i have talked about. which is a lot to me. i think you can call it depressing but personally i don't believe that's a continuation of this heated language will help the issue. today is chief political correspondent joins me now for more reaction to the g. seven summit so misael of the interviewer told marco that she was surprised at her quote tranquillity and her response to president trump's moves this weekend do you think she was tranquil. well these are not trying times and that something actually she mapped out the very fact that she went on to this requisite saying program that really sets of physical records for for the week spontaneously says a lot she's not known for any kind of passionate language both in positive when you compare it to french president call my call but also in negative terms where she's
11:03 pm
now warning for potential against this this war of words that really we see sort of thing there certainly between the canadian prime minister justin trudeau and donald trump so her concern is that there won't be enough talking going on and that this could spiral out of control america was also asked if this weekend spells the end of the transatlantic partnership partnership let's take a listen to her response. that's go business no i don't think so there are good reasons to continue fighting for it from our side but we cannot simply rely on it we have to ask ourselves where we can act and that of course means new responsibilities for europe and it is specially means that we in europe need to be loyal to ourselves. so we're there calling for a unified response from europe do you think that's likely. well the question is it's just got more likely actually because more external pressure is being applied
11:04 pm
on the european union to basically knock heads together and find common positions and when you talk about talking about the transatlantic relationship say with politicians but also increasingly in the us i mean john mccain senator john mccain he tweeted that basically america is not just the president so transatlantic relations doesn't mean the relationship between donald trump and the rest of the world and we're seeing a shift of respite care of connections being made to individual u.s. states rather than going through washington simply a lot of messages are not getting through at this very moment in time so we're certainly seeing a change in those relationships machall him up doubt that it is vital to find common foreign policy positions but also to find a core common approach to sign him here in the u. otherwise that would be danger for the european union as a whole but he doesn't talk about potential failure as in monaco was not shy of saying as america has been the only one reacting to the outcome of this week's

weekend's the seven meeting let's take a look at some of the other reactions. canada's pm didn't want to talk about it but the flux of reporters we do the we do. know the reaction. he dodged the questions about the u.s. a surprise rejection of the summits closing document. canada's foreign minister objected to the substance of trump's decision rather than his style what is insulting and what i object to very strongly is the illegal and unjustified in position of tariffs on canadian steel and aluminum on the street the national security pretext is absurd and frankly insulting to canadians meanwhile european leaders have joined in the criticism of france as a manual mccauley lambasted trump for rejecting the g seven communicate sane in a statement it showed washington's quote incoherence and inconsistency germany's
11:06 pm
foreign minister also had harsh words for the us president social media diplomacy are coming to you can destroy trust within seconds with two hundred eighty twitter characters. rebuilding it takes longer. we now must keep cool and take the appropriate steps are one of those will be standing up for our interests in europe in a much more united fashion. russia's president vladimir putin weighed in on the war of words after a g. seven statement criticize russia for what it called its destabilizing behavior. i think it's time to stop all this idle talk creative idle talk and get to issues related to real cooperation seems that the bush cooperation with moscow looks to be on washington's agenda with trump seen russia should rejoin what was once the g eight putin suggested his door was still open if the group's leaders were willing to hold talks in moscow on russia's terms. there's
11:07 pm
a lot of criticism there for washington so what's next after all of this material with all these cracks showing does it look like it's the end of the group of seven for what could be the beginning of a new set up or could be the beginning of six plus one but certainly i mean you know during the previous g. seven summit i was on. what's the point of this and the whole point is actually getting together and talking to each other and even if they're trading insults afterwards on twitter one thing is then highlighted here that this form is absolutely key turning point for tension events but also that the need for talks is that in fact the macro today says she would welcome donald trump and russia's vladimir putin sitting down for longer than they did over desert g twenty last year in hamburg so the need for talk has increased if anything. our chief political editor here thank you so much for your insights. this is the venue for the historic

11:10 pm
build in the first place and all have failed we're we're hopeful that this time will be different but i think we do have to be pragmatic about. the summit is a boat building a relationship with him but he also promises to walk over to the meeting if it's not fruitful the truth is this is a gamble and no one knows how it's going to do not. could i don't know if i'm conventional approach brink a breakthrough some here in washington actually believe it's worth a try but most experts remain skeptical they believe that this summit in singapore will be a little more than the photo op followed by a long negotiations over the details of an agreement and potentially an even longer phase of implementation and verification enough time for the north korean regime to play its usual game making promises extracting concessions and in the end not
