Trump Says US Won't Endorse G7 Statement Approved Earlier

"Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't", McCain wrote in a tweet on Saturday in response to a series of messages sent by the president on the social media site.

While Europe's leaders have often allowed Germany and France to coordinate a common stance at global gatherings, Conte raised eyebrows at the start of the summit by siding with Trump on the issue of Russia's readmission to their club.

"The simple fact is that more trade has been overwhelmingly beneficial to USA families and to net USA job creation for 75 straight years, and pretending America has been taken advantage of - that is, pretending that we're losers - isn't true".

Although Macron was given the honor of the first state visit of the Trump era in April, one of the most enduring images of the trip was when Trump brushed some flecks of dandruff off the Frenchman's jacket in the White House.

Earlier on Saturday, Trump told reporters it would be "very easy" to make the case for tariffs on auto imports using the rationale that they threaten national security.

The summit came during an ongoing trade dispute with China and served as a precursor to his unprecedented meeting with Kim, in which he has sought to extend a hand to the Asian autocrat who has long bedeviled the worldwide order. "I think it would be good for the world, I think it would be good for Russian Federation, I think it would be good for the United States, I think it would be good for all of the countries of the current G7", Trump said.

The US president also repeated his call for Putin to join the other leaders around the summit table. "I would say the relationship is a 10".

"We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing ― and that ends", the president said. "It's going to stop or we'll stop trading with them", he declared.

Merkel's proposal was strongly supported by other leaders at the meeting, the official said, adding that European Commission President Juncker said he was ready to invest personally in it.

Trump revealed that the USA team had worked "very well" with the representatives from Pyongyang during the bilateral preparatory talks for the summit.

Days after igniting a trade war, Donald Trump declared Saturday that he wants a world free of all tariffs and trade barriers. To United States, frankly, it would be a good thing but I'm not looking to do that.

Trump left the summit early headed for his meeting with the leader of North Korea next Tuesday. Canada issued its own threat of tariffs, which don't go into effect until July. And while that's a fair target for any free trader, it missed the point that neither Mr. Trump nor the United States is a free-trader on dairy products or agriculture.

Disagreement over the sunset clause was the deal breaker that scuttled a possible meeting between Trump and Trudeau in Washington late last month in an attempt to bring the NAFTA talks to a conclusion.

La Malbaie. Canada: G7 leaders, who can usually at least pretend to be the best of friends, wrapped up a two-day summit in Canada on Sunday that was marked by startlingly outspoken criticism.

The US had nevertheless appeared to agree a form of words on contentious issues thanks to an all-night negotiating session by officials from all sides.
