"After a long day of work and very direct dialogue, we are actively seeking an ambitious agreement", an English translation of Macron's tweet reads.

"For today, I think it's much more important to convince our American partners to strengthen our format as guarantor of world order, than to look for something new, more challenging, more hard", EU President Donald Tusk said Friday. "$800 Billion Trade Deficit..."

Macron also reportedly threatened not to sign the official G7 communique unless the U.S. was willing to make serious concessions on trade.

What did other leaders say?

Leaders of the G7 nations spent hunting for a face saving formula to mask the deep rift inflicted on the Western alliance by US President Donald Trump's assault on global trade rules.

"We've had really a very good relationship, very special", the United States president said of Macron, a day after the two leaders had exchanged terse messages on Twitter.

Along with other G7 leaders, he also was not terribly pleased with Trump's view that Russian Federation should be readmitted to the global order's top table.

French President Emmanuel Macron isn't disclosing details of his phone call last week with U.S. President Donald Trump, after an unnamed source told CNN television it went badly.

Macron represents not the only formerly friendly relationship that Trump's tariffs have soured.

Ahead of the encounter, the allies made no secret of their anger at Trump's stance, pointed starkly to fears that he is undermining the rules-based world order and driving former USA friends into a damaging trade war.

Trump, for his part, has argued that the European Union countries and Canada have imposed tariffs on USA goods for years to the detriment of U.S. farmers and factories, though he did not mention any specific regulations.

Navarro calls that a "socialist communique" that Trump pulled out of.

Trump has pointed to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's criticism of him as a reason for withdrawing from the consensus statement.

The G7 summit in La Malbaie, Canada, is set to take place over Friday and Saturday.

Specifically, Macron reportedly said that Trump would be excluded from a group declaration of unity to conclude the summit, a punishment for Trump's recent trade threats levied at the United States' closest allies.

He arrived behind schedule and planned an early leave from the G7 meeting today for Singapore, where he will attend the highly anticipated summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
