President Trump lands in Biarritz for G7 summit

Trump arrived in Biarritz a day after lashing back at a new round of Chinese tariffs by imposing an additional 5% duty on some $550 billion in targeted Chinese goods in the latest tit-for-tat trade war escalation by the world's two largest economies.

Trump also repeated his threat to tax French wines in retaliation for a new French levy on digital services, which the U.S. president says unfairly targets U.S. companies.

Summit host French President Emmanuel Macron wants the heads of Britain, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States to focus on the defense of democracy, gender equality, education and the environment and has invited Asian, African and Latin American leaders to join them for a global push on these issues.
