G7 leaders meet amid fear of a global trade war

Lashing out at the longtime USA ally and northern neighbour, President Donald Trump tweeted that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is "dishonest & weak" and that the U.S. was pulling back its endorsement of the G-7 summit's communique in part because of what he called Trudeau's "false statements" at a news conference.

In a second tweet, Trump said that Trudeau acted "meek and mild" during the G7 summit and that the USA tariffs were in response to Canada's 270% tariff on dairy products.

Apart from trade, there also was disagreement at the summit over the G7's position on climate change and Trump's suggestion that Russian Federation be re-admitted to the group.

The latest series of tweets by Trump follow posts he made last night - including his accusation that his host Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is being "indignant".

World leaders including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are expected to raise the issue of tariffs with US President Donald Trump.

As Buzzfeed's David Mack noted, Trump's sudden change just doesn't look good considering he is on his way to a historic summit with North Korea and begs the question "Why on earth should they trust the United States?"

"If the expectation was that a weekend in attractive Charlevoix surrounded by lovely people was going to transform the president's outlook on trade and the world, then we didn't quite perhaps meet that bar", Trudeau said.

Still, Trudeau also gave an account of his discussions with the USA president.

After the summit in Quebec, Trump headed to Singapore, four hours earlier than originally planned, to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

They also stepped up Trump's assault on Trudeau himself - unprecedented in the neighbouring countries' longstanding relationship.

As he headed to a G7 summit in Canada, Mr Trump said: "Russia should be in the meeting".

"The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the president".

"The relationship that I've had with these leaders is you can tell that to your fake friends at CNN", he said after a reporter from that network asked about the state of the relationship with these close USA allies.

Trump and other world leaders don't agree on a wide range of issues from trade to the environment as well as Iran and the construction of a new United States embassy in Jerusalem.

"We stick to the communique as agreed by all participants", a European official said on condition of anonymity. He touted the "great meetings and relationships", and said that the other leaders "understand where I am coming from".

Earlier in the day, G7 countries announced they had raised more than $3.8 billion in an effort with other countries to send the world's poorest girls to school.

Macron said he and Trump held "open and direct" discussions, adding that he thought there was a way to get a "win-win" outcome on trade, though details remained unclear. They could also damage Japan and Germany. "If we're unable to make a deal we'll terminate Nafta", Trump said Friday morning.
