Leaders vow to fight protectionism
Leaders from the Group of Seven countries reached consensus on fighting protectionism. But could not find it on climate change. That’s the message of a communique at the end of a two-day summit in Italy. In the statement, the leaders endorsed free trade, vowing to fight protectionism. U.S. President Donald Trump has pushed back against making similar statements in the past. On climate change, all but Trump reaffirmed a commitment to swiftly implement the 2015 Paris Agreement.
誓う、先進7か国、合意に達する、保護貿易主義と戦う、気候変動、支持する、自由貿易、に抵抗する（making similar statement）、似ている声明を出す、トランプ以外、再確認する、速やかに、実行する、協定、
The statement says U.S. is reviewing its policies on the Paris deal and on climate change. Trump tweeted he will make a decision in the coming week. During the presidential campaign, he promised to pull the U.S. out of the deal. German Chancellor Angela Merkel described the discussions as very difficult. She characterized the situation as “six against one.” French President Emmanuel Macron said President Trump is a pragmatist. He said he hopes Trump will confirm his commitment to the agreement because it would be in the best interests of the United States.
‐The Paris accord would undermine our economy, hamstring our workers, weakening our sovereignty, …
… unacceptable legal risk and put us at a permanent disadvantage to the other countries of the world.

Canada elects first tattooed Prime Minister
On October 19th, Justin Trudeau was elected Prime Minister of Canada at the age of 43. Meanwhile, on Twitter a photo of him at age 40 with long hair and a tattoo on his left shoulder has been circulating, and many are asking if Trudeau is the only leader of a major nation with a tattoo. The tattoo is an image of the Earth on top of a raven symbol used by the Haida tribe of indigenous people. The Trudeau family are honorary members of the tribe.
