Trump says does not endorse G7 communique, after 'weak' Trudeau comments

US President Donald Trump gives a news briefing at the G7 Summit in the Charlevoix city of La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, June 9, 2018.

Hours earlier, Trudeau had announced that all leaders of the G-7 had signed on to a joint statement at the summit's conclusion, as is customary.

In a statement, a spokesman for Trudeau did not address Trump's insults. "Or we're going to make a deal directly with Canada, directly with Mexico", Trump said.

Trump said that America's trading partners would be making a mistake if they retaliated against new USA tariffs.

In retrospect, the consensus had appeared shaky from the outset, and even as Trump flew out it was clear that the summit had failed to heal the rift on trade.

Vice President Mike Pence told Trudeau he would have to agree to that before Trump would agree to meet him.

The summit came during an ongoing trade dispute with China and served as a precursor to the unprecedented meeting with Kim, in which Trump has sought to extend a hand to the Asian autocrat who has long bedeviled the worldwide order.

"Russia has done nothing to earn its way back to the table", Donilon also said.

The President had expressed displeasure at having to the attend the summit, a gathering that began Friday in this town outside Quebec City amid tensions over the Trump administration's imposition of metals tariffs on United States allies.

"Canadians ... stood shoulder to shoulder with American soldiers in far off lands in conflicts from the First World War onward", the prime minister said at a press conference at the end of the summit, The Washington Post reported.

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

At his closing news conference, Trudeau had repeated his prior statements that he believed the US's national-security rationale for imposing steel and aluminum tariffs was "insulting", and that Canada would impose retaliatory tariffs.

Trump insisted that either version of the any future North American trade deal must have one key feature - a five-year sunset clause. A Canadian official said the leaders discussed accelerating the pace of the talks.

The money raised exceeds the $1.3 billion United States over three years that a coalition of 30 non-governmental organizations had called on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to raise as part of his chairmanship of the G7 this year.

President Trump's public comments Saturday morning reflected his aggressive approach with world leaders Friday night.

Trump placed the blame on his predecessor, President Barack Obama. And he was also asked for his thoughts on what Trump's move could mean for the future of the G-7. He touted the "great meetings and relationships", and said that the other leaders "understand where I am coming from". Trump said he had not spoken with Russian President Vladimir Putin in a while. A little bit accurate, perhaps.

The trade spat dominated the meeting, with Canadian and European leaders threatening retaliatory duties in response to the U.S. levies.
