After departing from the Quebec summit for Singapore, Trump tweeted that Trudeau's remarks at a news conference, where he said Canada would not be pushed around, "were very dishonest and weak".

Before Trudeau's announcement, there had been speculation that the US might be excluded from the communique due to high tensions between Trump and some G-7 leaders over recently imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Trump, who angered his G7 partners last week with tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico as part of his "America First" agenda, vowed to hold firm until us goods had "fair" access to markets.

But even though he has made his criticism of globalization a major part of his appeal to voters, Trump was the main target of a protest by around 400 demonstrators on Thursday night who set fire to USA and other G7 flags.

"I highlighted directly to the president that Canadians did not take it lightly that the United States has moved forward with significant tariffs", said Trudeau.

Following his announcement that the USA would be pulling its endorsement of the joint statement, Trump took another jab at Trudeau in a second tweet.

The war of words between Trudeau and Trump escalated after the USA president left the meeting early.

Trump also said Trudeau was being "indignant" about the cross-border trade relationship.

Earlier on Saturday, Trump told reporters it would be "very easy" to make the case for tariffs on auto imports using the rationale that they threaten national security.

The President said Canada and Mexico were also close to a deal on a sunset clause on NAFTA, but a senior Canadian official said Ottawa is not interested in such a clause that would trigger reopening the trade pact in five years.

Despite the tough words, Trump said his relationship with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Trudeau is at a "10".

"Our common goal is to try to find a text that can be signed by everyone.That said, I agree with what Justin Trudeau has said many times the desire to sign a common G7 declaration must not outweigh the need to be mindful of the content", he explained.

The furious USA president, speaking in Quebec, Canada, said the United States had been "taken advantage of for decades and decades" by the res too the world.

"The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversation with the President."

"Maybe the American president doesn't care about being isolated today, but we don't mind being six, if needs be", Macron told reporters.

President Trump leaves the G-7 summit after holding a press conference in the Canadian resort town of La Malbaie. Why are we having a meeting without them? He said other world leaders reacted positively to the idea.

Fears of a looming trade war were heightened last week after all the G7 nations announced plans to retaliate against Trump's tariffs with tariffs of their own. "With one country we have $375 billion in trade deficits".

Officials from European delegations quickly leaked copies of the joint statement to AFP, and it was published publicly online before Trump tweeted. They could also damage Japan and Germany.

On the subject of Russia, Trump said he thought it would be "an asset" to have the country in what would be the G8. The United States pays enormous tariffs on dairy.
