Two tweets and an insult spoil G-7 unity

Trump G-7

Trump agreed with the language in the communique from the summit in Canada Friday and Saturday, but took offense at criticism of USA tariffs by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at his news conference after Trump left early.

Ahead of the meeting, Trump already set a hostile tone on his Twitter profile, lashing out against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over fees on dairy products, calling him indignant, in addition to criticising unfair tariff barriers.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she finds President Donald Trump's tweet disavowing a common statement after the Group of Seven summit in Canada "sobering" and "a little depressing".

And that ends. Reporter: President trump said previous U.S. Presidents allowed other countries to take advantage of us.

In response to Trump's tweets, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau' s Office said that Trudeau has been consistent with Trump both in public and private conversations.

But a French official insisted France and its fellow G7 European nations were maintaining their support communique and said anyone departing from the commitments made at the summit would be showing their "incoherence and inconsistency".

A few hours earlier, Trudeau had told reporters that all seven leaders had come together to sign the joint declaration.

Trump G-7
Donald Trump and Justin Trudeau have been at loggerheads over trade tariffs

Trump called Trudeau "dishonest & weak" after Trudeau said at a news conference that Canada would retaliate for new USA tariffs.

President Trump will head to Singapore next week for an historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, where he will address the rogue country's controversial nuclear program. "I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in".

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".

The other G7 leaders will meet without him for the rest of the day, discussing climate change and worldwide development. 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. The EU also won't be "taken for a ride" in its trade conflict with the U.S., she said. Some countries have retaliated with their own levies on USA imports.

"There are good reasons on our side to continue to fight for it but we can't count on it anymore", she said.

After a failure to get Trump to budge on the tariffs he placed against America's G7 allies, Justin Trudeau held a press conference in which he vowed retaliatory action.

The US president argued that the invasion and annexation happened a long time ago and that a G8 (G7 plus Russia) makes more sense than the G7.
