Trump says he ordered his representatives not to sign G7’s final communique

Donald Trump: Top economies should drop all tariffs Trump disrupts gender equality meeting at G-7 summit by arriving late

While the two men have had several seemingly congenial meetings and phone calls since Trump took office, they could not be more different in terms of policy, with Trudeau a progressive liberal, outspoken on feminism and the merits of diversity and who was close to former president Barack Obama.

The US president, who left the summit in La Malbaie early to head for his talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, told reporters the US needed protectionist tariffs because "we are like the piggy bank that everyone is robbing".

It comes after Trudeau explained his position at a news conference in which he outlined the difficulties in moving forward with the North American Free Trade Agreement. "Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't".

Democrats Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Calif., and Sen. Charles Schumer, N.Y., also tweeted their opposition to Trump. "After the last few days, it's hard to tell".

G-7 leaders had hoped the annual summit would strengthen ties that had been tested by trade disputes.

Such a move could make it almost impossible to renegotiate the terms of the 1994 NAFTA pact between the United States, Canada and Mexico.

The war of words between Trudeau and Trump escalated after the US president left the meeting early.

I don't know where to go with this dog bites man metaphor but boy isn't this a insane world we live in!

He told the G7 leaders during the summit that the USA wanted a quick end to trade practices that he said have led to an exodus of American companies and jobs to other countries.

Trump cautioned other nations - those in the G-7 and around the world - that the size of the USA economy means other nations can't win a trade war.

"If there were to be a different United States government with a different agenda the [relationships] would come back really quickly" because of the U.S. economy's massive size and the dollar's preeminent role in global finance". And what of China's foreign direct investment into the United States?

The spat has financial markets anxious about tit-for-tit escalation that could lead to a full-blown global trade war.

The summit was wrapping up just as Chinese President Xi Jinping began hosting the leaders of Russian Federation and Iran at a regional security meeting in a symbol of the power-play between East and West. They also discussed speeding up talks and the future of Nafta, a Canadian government official said late Friday. "And we charge nothing", he said.

Russian Federation is a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council and plays a significant role in worldwide security issues. There will be no world hegemony if we know how to organise ourselves. I said okay, but so far we're getting nothing.

The Trump administration has blamed Canada for Trump's decision to not sign on to a communique at the G-7 summit in Quebec, Canada, over the weekend.

"Ultimately that's what you want". "Very dishonest and weak", Trump said.

"It doesn't make sense to arbitrarily patch up our differences", she said.

"POTUS is not going to let a Canadian prime minister push him around on the eve of this", Kudlow said, using an acronym for president of the United States.

French President Emmanuel Macron said the agreement would be a good first step and represented the G7 nations' desire to stabilize the situation.

The photo will come to define the insular and hostile Trump presidency, many commentators were quick to predict.

Trudeau said he told Trump that readmitting Russian Federation "is not something that we are even remotely looking at at this time".

"It's like the gig is up", he said. He gets 50%, and they think we're doing - like they're doing us a favour.

"He held a press conference and he said the U.S.is insulting".
