Trump cited unfair trade and tariffs from Canada, a longtime USA ally, as one of the reasons he refused to back the joint statement.

Trump ultimately refused to sign on to the communique.

Merkel and Trump also had a brief conversation at the summit.

"He learned", Trump said. "It may not be politically correct to say it, but we have a world to run".

Trump had delivered a stark warning to America's trading partners not to counter his decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

US President Donald Trump left after holding a press conference ahead of his early departure from the G7 Summit on June 9, 2018, in La Malbaie, Canada. In his address President Trump spoke about his recent appearance at the G7 summit, "I had a very good meeting with the G7".

Trump said that his ultimate goal was the elimination of all trade duties.

Fans wonder whether LeBron's injured hand cost the Cavs a championship
I get it would be for LeBron James , but I'm not under the belief that you try to fix something that wasn't necessarily broken. I think it's more special when you do it with people who support you and love you, care about what you do as a ball player.

The culinary diplomacy of the Trump-Kim summit lunch menu
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe travelled to Washington last week and urged Trump to raise that issue in his summit with Kim. They walked in from opposite sides of the building and met in front of a row of interspersed American and North Korean flags.

Adam Scotti, photographer to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, captured images of Trudeau standing above the group as well as a moment where he is gesturing to Trump, who appears actively listening.

The US leader accused the G7 nations of "robbing" the US, and stated his nation had been "taken advantage of for decades and decades" in global trade.

Russia has not released its hold on Crimea and has not been willing to negotiate on the Minsk Protocol agreement, which would ease the Russian occupation of the region; most recently, 14 Russian nationals were indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for interfering with the 2016 USA election, including the former business partner (and suspected Russian spy) of Paul Manafort, Trump's one-time campaign manager.

"We had been talking seriously about key issues, we had reached an agreement and then the way the President withdrew his support, through a tweet, was like a cold and even depressing shower", Merkel told local media.

Germany's influential centre-right leader said a tariff-free area among G7 allies would be an ideal outcome, but she made clear that any talks about this sort of trade bloc would have to include non-tariff barriers to trade as well as free access to public tenders, which Trump's isolationist and protectionist supporters in the U.S. have opposed.

The two-day G7 summit ended on Sunday. "We stand by it and whoever leaves it and turns their back on it is showing inconsistency and lack of character".
