Trump pulls out of joint G7 statement, calls Trudeau 'weak'

Mr Trump, who initially appeared ready to endorse the communique, pulled out after firing off a series of angry tweets aimed at Canadian premier Justin Trudeau.

President Donald Trump has slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as "dishonest and weak", using a tweet to retract his support for the G7 traditional joint communiqué.

Besides the escalated risk of a trade war, Trump's blistering personal attack on Trudeau poses domestic economic and political risks for the Canadian prime minister, who has stuck to a conciliatory stance in the face of US threats on NAFTA and other bilateral trade cases.

"We'll either leave it the way it is as a threesome deal" and "change it very substantially", Trump said Saturday in La Malbaie, Quebec, speaking to reporters before departing the Group of Seven leaders' meeting.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced he told President Trump he will go through retaliatory tariffs after Mr. Trump's decision not to exempt allies such as Canada from tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. "But the relationships are very good", he said.

But after saying he would give his relationship with fellow world leaders 10 out of 10, Mr Trump hit out at his northern neighbour. "We make commitments and keep them".

The G7 includes the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Canada, the US, France and Japan.

He said USA farmers had been harmed by tariffs and other barriers and warned that US trading partners would need to provide him with more favorable terms.

"We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", they said.

"If they retaliate, they're making a mistake", Trump declared.

Trade experts who have watched Trump negotiate with tough words on Twitter before said the bark of Trump's tweets often exceeds the bite of his policy - but that this time, Canada might struggle to respond.

US President Donald Trump left Canada before the end of the G7 summit and even before the final wording of a joint statement had been agreed.

"The United States has been taken advantage of for decades and decades", Trump said.

In a statement, the Canadian government did not address Trump's tweets, saying 'we are focused on everything we accomplished here at the #G7 summit, ' spokesman Cameron Ahmad said.

Diplomacy can not be dictated by "fits of anger", French President Emmanuel Macron warned after a G7 summit in Canada ended in acrimony.

Led by the United States, the group kicked out Russian Federation in 2014 over its annexation of Crimea and its support for pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine.

Vice President Mike Pence told Trudeau he would have to agree to that before Trump would agree to meet him. Trump said he had not spoken with Russian President Vladimir Putin in a while.

"We have done just that at this summit, registering our deep disappointment at the unjustified decision by the USA to apply tariffs to European Union steel and aluminium imports".

"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in, 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 the countries of the current G7", he said.
