Trump backs out of G-7 communique, criticises Canadian PM Trudeau

"The other leaders presented their numbers and Trump presented his".

The leaders discussed trade in their afternoon group meeting, touching on the World Trade Organization, the North American Free Trade Agreement, and the steel and aluminum tariffs that Trump recently imposed on Canada and the European Union, the Canadian official said. While many said that the picture sums up Trump's time at G-7, several others called it a "power dynamic".

"We must stop this escalation of tensions, the tit-for-tat process is not going to be helpful. new sectors will be brought into the picture, which is something that will harm everyone", he said.

It was a picture that, by several accounts, summed up the tense G7 summit over the weekend in Quebec, Canada.

His comment sparked a new diplomatic spat between Trudeau and the Trump administration and led Chancellor Merkel to criticize Trump's handling of the matter.

American National Security Advisor John Bolton, however, offered a different interpretation of the photograph. "That was put out by my people", Trump told Stephanopoulos. In his turn, Trump announced that the USA would be looking to impose tariffs on vehicle imports.

Although he arrived in Canada on Friday, Trump also arrived late to the G-7's summit first session on Saturday morning, a breakfast meeting about gender equality. He reiterated his longstanding view that the USA has been taken advantage of in global trade, adding, "We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing, and that ends".

Trump left the meeting between the world's leading industrialized countries with a warning to USA allies, saying that if they don't remove trade barriers with the US then they will face consequences.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on Sunday called on European nations to stick together following Trump's announcement. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe did not show a clear stance on the issue, the official said.

Shortly after that statement was published online, Trump complained about comments made by Trudeau and revoked his support.

Although Trump and Kudlow have since claimed Trudeau "stabbed us in the back" and was the reason for the U-turn, it is Trump's actions that other G7 leaders appeared to find frustrating.

There were also no more references to Trump's off-the-cuff remark about the need to bring Russian President Vladimir Putin back into the fold of the worldwide community. "International cooperation cannot depend on anger or small words".
