President Donald Trump threw the G-7 summit into disarray Saturday, tweeting that the USA was pulling back its endorsement of the group's communique in part because of what he called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's "false statements" at a news conference.
US President Donald Trump said yesterday that he brought up the dramatic prospect of completely eliminating tariffs on goods and services at the Group of Seven (G-7) summit, even as he threatened to end all trade with America's closest allies if they do not stop what he says are unfair trade practices.
On Saturday, Trump arrived late for the first working session on gender equality but Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau forged ahead with opening remarks without him, commenting wryly about "stragglers".
Sen. John McCain pushed back Saturday night against President Donald Trump's reversal of an agreement to sign onto a statement by the G7 countries, saying that Americans would continue to stand with its historical allies.
His words contained nothing he had not said before, both in public and in private conversations with Mr Trump, his office said later.
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. In the weeks leading up to the summit, he imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union. "But we're getting them worked out, slowly but surely". "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.

"We're talking to all countries", he said, denouncing what he said were huge existing tariffs on U.S. exports around the world.
But Trump said that the notion that the G7 summit was in any way contentious was "fake news", telling reporters Saturday that the conference had been "so wonderful".
Going into the summit, Mr Trump was at odds with other leaders on issues such as trade, Iran and climate change.
That means he will have left Canada by the time the other leaders begin closing news conferences likely to be laden with criticism of Washington's trade and diplomatic policies.
Journalists traveling on Air Force One to Singapore with Trump had been told that the U.S. had chose to be part of the joint communique, which represented a minimal show of unity amid deep disagreements between Trump and the other six leaders over trade.
"I think the G-8 would be better. We're not looking to play games", he said.
A reporter asked Trump about his relationships with the other countries in the G7 and whether he felt like alliances were shifting.
