Trump withdraws endorsement of G7 joint statement, slams 'weak' Trudeau

"Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" the United States president tweeted.

Mr. Trump also warned that retaliating against the US tariffs would be a "mistake", suggesting that the USA might just not deal with countries who fail to treat the his standards. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did".

"I have made it very clear to the President that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said.

"Canadians.stood shoulder to shoulder with American soldiers in far off lands in conflicts from the First World War onward", Trudeau reminded Trump.

And more: "Looking forward to straightening out unfair Trade Deals with the G-7 countries". Trump fired back, saying the USA had been duped for for years by barriers and that any country that imposed its own measures would regret it.

"They should let Russian Federation come back in because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table", he said.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", he added.

The G7 includes the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Canada, the US, France and Japan.

The US leader left the summit earlier than planned on Saturday to fly to Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, which he described as a "mission of peace".

Trump has already initiated a trade war and that trade war is already hurting USA businesses and consumers, and will continue to do a so.

"We're either going to have NAFTA in a better negotiated form or we're going to have two deals", the USA president said.

He said he didn't blame the other world leaders, saying their countries struck good deals at America's expense, and said he blamed previous US presidents.

U.S. trade advisor Peter Navarro, speaking on "Fox News Sunday", reinforced that message.

"The president of the Wisconsin Farmers Union told me that what they really wanted was a supply-managed system like ours", he said.

Despite the tension, the member states' leaders were cordial in person, Trump included.

Over the course of his presidency, Trump has inflamed allies with his isolationist policies, including withdrawing the US from the Paris climate accord and the global Iran nuclear agreement.

A senior United Kingdom official said May was using a G7 discussion on the global economy to make her argument. "We didn't do votes or anything, but it has been discussed", he said.

That leaves Trump diametrically opposed with Canada, which says renegotiating the deal every five years would create perpetual uncertainty and harm long-term investment. Although, new Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte sided with Trump. He added that the US will take the necessary steps to protect industry and workers from unfair practices. "They know it", he insisted in his departing news conference.

As they departed Saturday, it became clear that many are still searching for ways to deal with the unpredictable US leader.

He said Saturday that he's also considering scrapping the North American Free Trade Agreement in favor of bilateral trade deals with Canada and Mexico individually.

"It was not contentious", Trump said. Great meetings and relationships with the six Country Leaders especially since they know I can not allow them to apply large Tariffs and strong barriers to. "I don't blame other leaders for that, I blame our past leaders".

"It's like the gig is up", he said. "I may have had a much different attitude".

Trump angrily hit back at suggestions that he had thrown the West into turmoil at the G7 summit in Canada, branding a question over any downturn in relations as "fake news". They didn't tell you that, did they?

They had been careful not to reveal their approach before meeting with Trump, although it appeared very calculated.

His anger was revealing of his operating method as President, his attitude towards America's traditional foreign policy positions and his skill in using theatrical moments on the world stage to send a strong message to his loyal voters back home.
