As leaders of the Group of Seven industrialized countries meet in Quebec, Trump is facing serious opposition from some of America's closest allies, with some Western leaders warning that they are willing to part company with the US over trade. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau insists the Trump hard line will only hurt the U.S.

"Russia is focused on other formats, apart from the G7", the spokesman stated. Italy, France, Germany and the United Kingdom are members of the EU.

It used to be the Group of Eight, but in 2014 the other nations booted Russian Federation for annexing Crimea and supporting pro-Kremlin separatists in eastern Ukraine.

Before boarding the plane to Quebec for the G-7 summit, President Trump answered a lot of questions from the press.

Another posting says he is looking forward to straightening out unfair trade deals with the G7 countries.

Trump's comment on Twitter sets the stage for what could be an uncomfortable confrontation over economic policy on Friday.

European leaders criticize the USA decision to impose protectionist tariffs on steel and aluminum and to exit the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate agreement.

It was only six weeks ago when U.S. President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron grinned, laughed, and hugged their way through a state visit in Washington, showing all the signs of two leaders with a genuine friendship.

For his part, Trudeau has expressed his displeasure over the tariffs (which were invoked citing national security) saying that Canada and the US have had a great relationship over the years.

Russian Federation was invited to join in 1998 as a way to encourage capitalist reforms in the country, turning it into the G8.

President Trump will head to Singapore next week for an historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, where he will address the rogue country's controversial nuclear program.

Even before these developments it had become clear that this would be one of the more contentious G-7 meetings in memory.

Trump took the action on the grounds that weak domestic industries could affect US national security. Then he threw in another smoke bomb, suggesting he might split NAFTA up into separate deals with Canada and Mexico.

The two leaders talked on the phone last week after Trump announced US tariffs on European goods.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has predicted the G-7 talks will be heated because of the American stance on trade.

Trump joined the leaders of major industrialized nations in an idyllic Canadian resort town after days of escalating conflict over new USA tariffs he slapped on imports of steel and aluminum.

Tweeting in English, Macron stressed: "No leader is eternal".

And he said Trump's determination to bait his allies over trade and diplomatic engagements "would only play into the hands of those who seek a new post-West order where liberal democracy and fundamental freedoms would cease to exist". Salvini and fellow euro-skeptic coalition partner Luigi Di Maio, of the 5-Star Movement, agreed to back Conte so their parties could govern.

Sure, President Trump will attend the G7 Summit this weekend but he's out of there early.
