Nevertheless, Saturday's events only reinforced the chancellor's commitment to forging a stronger, more unified European Union.

What caused the rift?

Shibaike said there was little the Japanese prime minister could have done except "take a back seat on the trade issue while seeking reassurance that the United States and Japan are on the same page regarding North Korea".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who chaired the summit, expressed his disappointment over Washington's recent decision to impose new tariffs on steel and aluminum in a post-meeting press conference, and Trump responded by calling him "very dishonest and weak", backing off from the communique he signed hours earlier. Speaking on the condition of anonymity a Canadian official told national broadcaster CBC that not only had Trudeau made these remarks prior to the meeting, on US television last week, he had also informed Trump of his position before he went on air.

President Donald Trump lashed out at United States allies Monday in a Twitter rant focusing on trade following a contentious G7 summit of economic powers in Canada at the weekend. The photo, the editors wrote, was the only glimpse we got of the U.S.'s "disastrous showing" at the summit.

The president did not specify which exact remarks he considered to be false.

Trump arrived late to the G-7, after letting it be known he had no desire to show up at all. The president, en route to Singapore, lashed out at the Canadian leader via Twitter, stating that the US will not endorse the communique.

Based on that account, Trudeau wasn't the only G-7 leader who toned down the rhetoric in direct talks.

The leaders eventually agreed on the joint communique, which included pledges to engage in "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade and investment".

Paris also delivered a withering response to the United States president's tweeted instruction for American officials to withhold their endorsement. According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with US (guess they were bragging and got caught!).

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade", he added in response to the threat of new tariffs against the US. "Then Justin acts hurt when called out!"

On Thursday, Macron berated Trump for imposing unilateral tariffs on imported steel and aluminium rather than go through worldwide arbitration, and for walking out of a multilateral nuclear deal with Iran. Due to Canada's protectionist dairy industry, Canadian farmers earn much more per liter of milk.

On Sunday's CNN's "State of the Union", Kudlow called Trudeau's criticism of us tariffs "non-factual", adding that Canada had "enormous tariffs" on USA imports.

Donald Trump is due to fly into Quebec on Friday morning for a G7 meeting which, even before it has begun, is already on the way to being the most acrimonious in the summit's history. He said USA representatives will examine the tariffs on automobiles coming into the country and bemoaned the Canadian tariffs that affect American companies and farmers.
