Those discussions are likely to focus on Trump's decision last week to impose punishing tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum from Washington's closest allies, including Canada, the European Union and Japan.
The retaliatory measures include a 25% import tariff on steel products, 20% on pork products, 20% to 25% duties on cheeses and a 25% duty on bourbon.
"There are disagreements. He's sticking to his guns".
Regardless of what the rest of the world might think, Trump is deadly serious about reforming a global trade system he believes is fundamentally broken, Kudlow said.

Mexico has hit back against President Trump's tariffs on steel and aluminium, imposing its own import taxes on American goods including pork, potatoes and apples.

Trump is to attend the summit Friday and Saturday before flying to Singapore for a historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12. "The impact on Canada and ultimately on workers in the USA won't be a laughing matter".
New US tariffs would make trade deals void, China says
French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire even referred to the bloc as G6+1 as an indication of the deepening rift. Some U.S. companies that buy steel are complaining that Trump's tariffs put them at a competitive disadvantage.
The comments in the White House press briefing room came shortly after both Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is hosting the G-7 summit in Quebec's Charlevoix region, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel forecast hard discussions on Friday and Saturday. For example, Mexico is the second-largest consumer of US pig meat, making the industry vulnerable to Mexican tariffs.

The statement, the official added, would accept no language about Iran not respecting the terms of the nuclear accord or any condemnation of the agreement. European allies have urged Trump to reconsider. As of May 31, they've all expired, and the US government decided not to renew them.
The apple trade industry will shift its focus to increase sales to USA markets and exports to countries that don't have import tariffs, he said.
Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland questioned the Trump administration's move on CNN.
