Trump threatens U.S. allies on trade as he exits G7 summit

G-7 split over Trump's call to readmit Russia

President Donald Trump delivered a stern warning on trade to foreign countries at the Group of Seven summit on Saturday, advising trading partners not to retaliate against US tariffs on the imports of steel and aluminum.

Within minutes of the official release of the document, Trump attacked Trudeau on Twitter over what he described as the prime minister's "false statements" during the closing news conference - and the president announced the USA would no longer endorse the communique.

"Prime Minister Trudeau is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the US and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things", Trump said in a tweet on Thursday.

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

But of course, the biggest is US President Donald Trump.

French President Emmanuel Macron responded in a "courteous but very firm tone" to present the European side of the story, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe chimed in as well, the official said.

Trump's tweets about not signing the communique were sent while he was in travel to Singapore ahead of a planned diplomatic meeting with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel acknowledged differences between the United States and the six other members of the G7 remained, but said a joint statement on trade was expected to be issued at the end of the two-day summit in La Malbaie, Quebec.

But, he said, the USA could no longer tolerate "brutal" deals, even threatening to tear up the North American Free Trade Agreement if he didn't get his way. "I think having Russian Federation back in would be a positive thing".

"The loss of trade through tariffs undermines competition, reduces productivity and removes the incentive to innovate and ultimately makes everyone poorer", she said.

"I think President Trump knows that".

While the G7 chiefs have largely praised Trump for his efforts to stabilise the Korean peninsula, they are unhappy he pulled out of an global agreement created to limit Iran's nuclear ambitions.

"I think there are various discussions about alternatives that would not be that, and that would not be entirely destabilising for a trade deal, and I think we are open to creativity", he said.

Trump announced the move last month to the dismay of partners in Europe and beyond who were left scrambling to keep the landmark 2015 agreement in place.

Once again, Trump emphasized that the days of the US getting the short end of the stick in its trading relationships with the world were over under his watch.
