Trump Says U.S. Will Not Endorse G7 Statement Approved Earlier

Trump also slammed Trudeau for "making false statements" and accused him of being "meek and mild" in their one-on-one meeting on Friday before the Canadian leader came out swinging against the U.S. in a press conference on Saturday. "It's kind of insulting".

The joint communique that was thrashed out over two days of negotiations vowed that members would reform multilateral oversight of commerce through the World Trade Organization (WTO) and seek to cut tariffs.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May stood with Trudeau on the issue of trade.

At what a French presidential official described as one "extraordinary" session on Friday, leaders who had vowed to confront Trump over his decision to impose tariffs on US allies last week as part of his "America First" agenda, showered Trump with data one after the other.

"So, if I can get the president to actually realize that what he's doing is counterproductive for his own goals as well, then perhaps we can move forward in a smarter way". "And no subsides, I even said not tariffs".

Besides the escalated risk of a trade war, Trump's blistering personal attack on Trudeau poses domestic economic and political risks for the Canadian prime minister, who has stuck to a conciliatory stance in the face of US threats on NAFTA and other bilateral trade cases.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe - a veteran of seven G7 leaders' meetings - said the Charlevoix summit featured heated exchanges, the likes of which he has never seen.

Earlier on Saturday, President Trump concluded his visit to the Group of Seven summit with warnings to US allies, saying if they don't eliminate barriers to trade, they could lose access to the USA economy.

Calling out one of America's closest allies by name, Trump accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of making "false statements" during a presser after his departure.

May reiterated the need to avoid tit-for-tat actions in a trade dispute between the European Union and the United States. "It was a hard time, rough, very frank".

"We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing", Trump said.

The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the official's remarks about Trump.

Trump's salvo capped a dizzying two days of controversies that began with his suggestion Russian Federation be readmitted to the G7, then what a French official described as a "rant" full of "recriminations" against USA trading partners, followed by Trump's denial of any contention with leaders at the summit and his description of their relationship as a "10".

At their root, tensions between Trump and fellow leaders run deeper than personality.

Trump criticized the Canadian prime minister for acting "meek and mild" during their G-7 meetings, accusing him of changing his tone after Trump departed for a planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

La Malbaie. Canada: G7 leaders, who can usually at least pretend to be the best of friends, wrapped up a two-day summit in Canada on Sunday that was marked by startlingly outspoken criticism.

"I did suggest it and people were - I guess they're going to go back to the drawing board and check it out", Trump said.

European officials described a much different encounter with Trump than the one he portrayed. "If you give in now, he will come back tomorrow for more".

He said the move was based on Mr Trudeau's "false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive tariffs to our USA farmers, workers and companies". "Very dishonest & weak", the president tweeted.

The summit came during an ongoing trade dispute with China and served as a precursor to the unprecedented meeting with Kim, in which Trump has sought to extend a hand to the Asian autocrat who has long bedeviled the worldwide order.
