THE G7 Summit in Canada will be dominated by Donald Trump’s pending trade war as Theresa May meets with EU leaders for an unprecedented meeting to discuss how they plan to retaliate against the US President’s raft of tariffs.

World leaders from the group of the seven richest nations are set for a dramatic showdown with the firebrand Republican as they pressure him to lift levies on steel and aluminium.

But not before Theresa May joins forces with EU member leaders, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanul Macron and new Italian PM Giuseppe Conte in a meeting to discuss how they plan to tackle the threat from Mr Trump before the summit gets started.

Mrs May looks set to play a diplomatic go-between role as she tries to keep tensions from simmering over.

Last night she called from restraint from the European Union, which is set to unveil its own list of tariffs on US exports in retaliation.

But on Friday morning, the PM was reporteldy denied a bilateral-meeting with the US leader.

Number 10 refused to say if the PM had requested a meeting.

Asked if Mrs May believed she had been snubbed, a spokeswoman replied: “No. She will be working alongside him today in many of the working sessions and she obviously spoke to him earlier this week, and will be seeing him for his visit next month.

“So, she has had lots of opportunity to talk to him.”

“They have a good working relationship. She speaks to him regularly and she’s looking forward to seeing him next month.”

Riot police have been pictured in the streets surrounding Quebec as campaigners gather pace in protest against the two-day summit.
