Picture of Trump, G7 leaders goes viral

The leaders discussed trade in their afternoon group meeting, touching on the World Trade Organization, the North American Free Trade Agreement, and the steel and aluminum tariffs that Trump recently imposed on Canada and the European Union, the Canadian official said.

The EU has already said it will announce countermeasures against Trump's metals tariffs on July 1.

After leaving the summit Saturday, Trump announced that the US was pulling back its endorsement of the G7 communique in part because of what he called "false statements" at a news conference by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Merkel singled out Macron's hope for a jointly managed investment budget of "one or two percent of gross domestic product" in the single currency area as overambitious.

"Actually, we were just talking - the whole group - about something unrelated to everything, very friendly", Mr Trump said.

That wrestling cry would have been an apt announcement at the G-7 summit, what with the USA and other heads of state at each other's throats using the thrust and parry of rude remarks and social media to pummel each other.

Trump revoked his administration's support for the G7 communique after Trudeau's news conference. "We agree that a return by Russian Federation to the G-7 format can not happen as long as there isn't any substantial progress in regard to the problems with Ukraine", said Merkel, CNN reported. Trump cited unfair trade and tariffs from Canada, a longtime United States ally, as one of the reasons he refused to back the joint statement. He has directed US officials "not to endorse" the G-7 joint statement, and personally insulted Trudeau in a series of Twitter posts. He reiterated his longstanding view that the USA has been taken advantage of in global trade, adding, "We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing, and that ends".

Trump left Charlevoix before the G-7 summit had concluded in order to attend the bilateral summit in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. "International cooperation cannot depend on anger or small words".
