Trump throws G-7 into disarray with tweets after he leaves

Trump to leave G7 summit early amid feud with Trudeau, Macron US Challenging rules-based international order: EU president Tusk

Trudeau said Canadians are nice but added, "We will not be pushed around".

Trump repeated his assertion that the United States has been taken advantage of for decades, citing Canada's tariffs on milk to protect its dairy farmers.

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

Trump, in a Twitter tirade on Thursday, pointed fingers at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French president Emmanuel Macron, stating that "they are charging the USA massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

Because of the disputes, many observers were not certain a statement would be issued under all seven countries' names.

In their communique, the leaders of the US, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan agreed on the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism. I think it would be good for the world.

Such a move could make it almost impossible to renegotiate the terms of the 1994 NAFTA pact between the United States, Canada and Mexico. "I think it would be good for all of the countries of the current G7".

The acrimonious fallout from the G7 began after Mr Trump watched Mr Trudeau's end-of-summit press conference.

Mr. Putin might be in his club as much as British Prime Minister Theresa May or Mr. Trudeau.

Trump was asked if he thought Russia's control over Crimea should be recognized by the global community, but he avoided answering directly and instead blamed his predecessor, Barack Obama, for the situation. "I think it would be good for the world, I think it would be good for Russian Federation, I think it would be good for the United States, I think it would be good for all of the countries of the current G7", Trump said.

"Let's say Canada, where we have tremendous tariffs". He wants to browbeat other countries for concessions, although he often fails to articulate which concessions he wants. Donald Trump with his armed crossed seems unconvinced by Angela Merkel, who is leaning on the table in front of him, attempting to convince him as Macron, May and Abe look on.

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain put it this way: "This is the antithesis of so-called "principled realism" and a sure path to diminishing America's leadership in the world".

"We have a very really good relationship, very special", Trump told reporters after Friday's handshake.

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.

At what a French described as one "extraordinary" session on Friday, leaders who had vowed to confront Trump over his decision to impose tariffs on United States allies last week as part of his "America First" agenda, showered Trump with data one after the other.

Paris also delivered a withering response to the USA president's tweeted instruction for American officials to withhold their endorsement.

May reiterated the need to avoid tit-for-tat actions in a trade dispute between the European Union and the United States. Mexico slapped a 25% import tariff on USA steel products, as well as 20% on pork products, 25% on bourbon and duties on other agricultural goods including cranberries.

The G7 leaders also discussed the issue of uncontrolled migration and the threat it poses to national security. However, it is unclear if it will get USA support.

"What this will look like in 2018 and potentially beyond is a more and more economically and politically isolated America, but the rest of the world is pretty much carrying on to the best of its ability just without the United States".

It did not specifically mention the 2015 nuclear accord, which provided Tehran with relief from sanctions in return for curbs on its nuclear program.

Mr. Trump has become the President who disrupts his allies more than his adversaries.
