Trump gives relationship with G7 countries 10 out of 10

Mr Trump tweeted: "PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he 'will not be pushed around'".

He plans to leave the summit four hours earlier than originally planned to fly to Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the White House said.

President Donald Trump delivered a stern warning on trade to foreign countries at the Group of Seven summit on Saturday, advising trading partners not to retaliate against USA tariffs on the imports of steel and aluminum.

Trump, in a Twitter tirade on Thursday, pointed fingers at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French president Emmanuel Macron, stating that "they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

CITY-President Donald Trump told the Group of Seven (G7) leaders that there should be no tariffs and barriers among the G7 countries, during the summit in La Malbaie, Quebec.

Before Trudeau's announcement, there had been speculation that the US might be excluded from the communique due to high tensions between Trump and some G-7 leaders over recently imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Mr. Macron, feuding with Mr. Trump over USA steel and aluminum tariffs on the European Union, tweeted that he and the other six leaders were prepared to turn their backs on Mr. Trump at the summit.

Trump said he doesn't blame the current leaders, but he had a sharp warning for them if they don't work with him to correct what he sees as an unfair situation. Trump accused President Obama of letting Russian Federation take over Crimea.

Donald Trump accused the European Union of a "brutal" approach to trade with the United States and warned that retaliating to American steel tariffs would be a mistake.

"We have to have deals that are fair", Trump said.

The fraught, contentious summit was like none other in memory, upending decades of worldwide cooperation on trade and policy with America's most steadfast allies, from Canada, Japan and Europe.

Despite Mr Trump's actions, the UK, France and Germany have insisted they will stand by the commitments made at the summit.

"And so began a long litany of recriminations, somewhat bitter reports that the United States was treated unfairly, that the trading system was totally unfavorable to the United States, the American economy, American workers, the middle class", the official said.

On Saturday, Giuseppe Conte was heading home to Italy as a fully-fledged member of the most exclusive club of world leaders.

The US president also repeated his call for Putin to join the other leaders around the summit table.

That global order appears to be in disarray now, nearly everyone agrees, including the United States leader largely responsible for the upheaval. "I'm not looking to play that game".

Trump fired back at the world leaders, attacking both Trudeau and Macron on Twitter the day before the summit.

But while the other leaders failed to persuade Trump that his view of global trade was overly simplistic and inaccurate, the US president surprised them during a meeting on Friday by suggesting that they work toward ending all tariffs and barriers, in what would effectively be the mother-of-all free trade agreements.
