"Very dishonest and weak".

The photo will come to define the insular and hostile Trump presidency, many commentators were quick to predict.

Earlier on Saturday, Trudeau said that the Group of Seven members managed to coordinate the final communique of the summit that had ended in La Malbaie, Canada.

After Trump's tweets, Trudeau's office released the following statement: "The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the president".

President Donald Trump on Saturday tweeted the U.S. won't endorse the joint statement from the Group of Seven summit, and threatened auto tariffs.

Trump quickly responded on Twitter that he was surprised by Trudeau's comments because he found the prime minister "so meek and mild" at the summit.

"There's some movement within Congress now to rein in Trump on trade policy", Gertz said.

"I wasn't sure - he said it so beautifully. There was no reason that this should have happened".

He branded the EU as "brutal" in business and warned countries it would be a "mistake" to retaliate against his 25% tariffs on steel and 10% on aluminium from countries including the United Kingdom and members of the European Union.

The G-7 - an informal annual summit of democracies with highly developed economies - took place Friday and Saturday in the Quebec resort town of Charlevoix in Canada, which holds the rotating leadership this year.

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

Canada, along with the European Union, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the World Bank, will partner on the funds, which will go towards supporting women acquiring job skills, improving teacher training to improve curriculum for girls, expanding the quality of data available on female education and promoting more coordination between humanitarian partners.

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

But Trump had already said he would not hesitate to shut countries out of the USA market if they retaliate to his tariffs. "I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in".

Trump departed the annual G7 gathering after arriving late to a breakfast on gender equity and skipping later sessions on climate change, clean energy and ocean protection.

Trump will then head to Singapore ahead of his highly-anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday.

"I think there are various discussions about alternatives that would not be that, and that would not be entirely destabilizing for a trade deal, and I think we are open to creativity", he said. "That's what I do". During his time in La Malbaie, the US president refused to back down.

Trump tweets dumb things and Trudeau smacks him down. Roughly 28,000 American service members and civilian military personnel are now stationed in South Korea.

But I feel really confident", Trump said of Monday's meeting, which is the first between a North Korean leader and sitting USA president, "It's never been done, It's never been tested.

"Tariffs are going to come way down because we people can not continue to do that".

Fellow G7 leaders stared at Trump as he slowly made his way to his seat, which was across the table from Trudeau and next to International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde.
