  • Donald Trump withdraws endorsement of G7 joint statement, slams Trudeau

Later on Saturday, after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said all seven nations had signed a joint communique at the end of the summit, Trump angrily lashed out on Twitter, stating the US would not endorse the statement. She also said the U.S. president wasn't entirely wrong in pressing Germany to increase defence spending.

Trump also tweeted that U.S. tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, including from Canada, were in response to Canada's tariffs on American dairy products.

Trump has pointed to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's criticism of him as a reason for withdrawing from the consensus statement. "So we are going in with a really positive spirit", the USA president said.

The French president's office said in a statement: "International co-operation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks".

Trudeau refused, and the meeting was off the table, but the lead ministers from both countries talked trade on the sidelines of the G7 leaders' talks on Friday.

Trudeau told reporters that Canada would move forward on July 1 with retaliatory tariffs to answer for Trump's tariffs on aluminum and steel that were "unjustly applied to us".

He said Trump had done Trudeau the "courtesy" of traveling to the summit when "he had other things, bigger things on his plate", referring to Trump's June 12 summit with North Korean ruler Kim Jong-un.

Trump is issuing a stern warning to foreign countries not to retaliate against U.S. tariffs on the imports of steel and aluminum. By its second day, the summit had dissolved into chaos, with Trump leaving early and then retracting his endorsement of the final statement from the G7.

Leading up to the meetings, Trump, Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron had suggested the potential for a tough tone, though they were cordial in face-to-face meetings.

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. The EU also won't be "taken for a ride" in its trade conflict with the USA, she said.

Russian Federation has been shut out since its 2014 annexation of the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine, and has since earned Western condemnation for its military intervention in Syria in support of dictator Bashar al-Assad.

"I'm certainly in favour of that", Merkel said in a German television interview.

"The continuation of sanctions is clearly linked to Russia's failure to demonstrate complete implementation of its commitments in the Minsk Agreements and respect for Ukraine's sovereignty", it said.

In response, the European Union is preparing new tariffs set to hit United States exports ranging from jeans to bourbon whiskey.

US President Donald Trump has left following his brief trip to Canada saying his relationship with the G7 countries is a 10 out of 10, and reports of rifts between the powerful countries are simply "fake news".
