Donald Trump to leave meeting early, missing environmental talks

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".

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday that he has instructed U.S. representatives not to endorse the joint communique released at the end of the Group of Seven (G7) summit in Quebec, Canada.

Trump said he doesn't blame foreign leaders for the state of the trading relationship, instead laying blame on past USA presidents who have entered into deals that, he asserts, have enriched allies while hollowing out American industry. He called many current tariffs on USA goods and services "ridiculous".

Shortly afterwards, the White House issued a separate photo showing a sitting Mr Trump speaking as Mrs Merkel, Mr Abe and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau listen. "And that ends." - Trump insists that the current status quo on trade can not be allowed to continue. According to the Telegraph, it appears as if Emmanuel Macron made a decision to give Trump a taste of his own medicine in what is being described as a bit of an awkward encounter between the two. Others said "make what you will" of the forcible handshake.

Trade battle lines were drawn even before he arrived in a series of dueling tweets and statements between Trump and his onetime friend French President Emmanuel Macron.

Mr. Macron, feuding with Mr. Trump over US 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's next stop after the G7 summit is to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

Trump campaign manager trying to pick up 'Roseanne' show

Trump, who arrived late to the first meeting on gender equality today, will leave before talks on climate change and the health of oceans, after not gaining support in his grievances over USA tariffs.

He later said that Russia's return to the group would be "an asset" and that it would be a good move for peace in the world.

"We have a tremendous trade imbalance", Trump said during Saturday's press conference.

This meant there were some pretty big characters in that room - German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British PM Theresa May, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron, as well as Europe chiefs Donald Tusk and Jean-Claude Juncker.

Trump's counterparts in the G7 had sought this week to try to find some semblance of consensus with Washington on trade and the other key issues that have formed the basis of the 42-year-old grouping of industrialized nations.

Trump also criticized his predecessor Barack Obama, saying he allowed Russian Federation to annex Crimea in 2014. A subsequent visit in April this year warranted only a working lunch for the German leader, several days after fellow European Union leader Macron got the full, formal state dinner treatment from Trump. But the leaders are saying they're committed to continuing the dialogue and continuing to work on this matter.
