FRENCH President Emmanuel Macron said yesterday that "things were moving forward" at a G7 summit in Canada as he held talks with Donald Trump that focused on the United States president's decision to slap tariffs on America's allies.

The Prime minister's spokesman tweeting that what Trudeau said wasn't anything he hadn't already said to Trump himself.

Mr. Trump addressed the subject of worldwide trade during an impromptu news conference at the summit on Saturday, saying that he does not want to see other countries take advantage of the USA over trade.

Mr. Trump then tweeted that "based on Justin's false statements, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our USA farmers", he would not be following the final communique. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!

"These are jointly shared principles, although the pitfalls lie in the details", she said in a press conference, adding that she expected a joint G7 statement on trade would be issued at the end of the summit.

French President Emmanuel Macron responded in a "courteous but very firm tone" to present the European side of the story, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe chimed in as well, the official said. "Only to give a news conference after I left saying that "us tariffs were kind of insulting" and "he will not be pushed around".

"The rules-based worldwide order is being challenged, quite surprisingly, not by the usual suspects but by its main architect and guarantor, the US" - European Council president Donald Tusk vents his frustration at Trump.

"We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the G7 summit", the statement, released by Cameron Ahmad, said. In fact, Russian Federation was expelled from what was then the G-8 after it invaded and annexed Crimea and for its support for pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine.

As Buzzfeed's David Mack noted, Trump's sudden change just doesn't look good considering he is on his way to a historic summit with North Korea and begs the question "Why on earth should they trust the United States?"

Trump had entered the summit amid a spat with Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron over USA tariffs on steel and aluminum. "It is going to stop or we are going to stop trading with them".

On Friday, Mr Trump made a surprise call for Moscow to be readmitted but German Chancellor Angela Merkel said other members were against the idea. "But he doesn't bring up the fact that they charge us up to 300% on dairy - hurting our Farmers, killing our Agriculture", the USA president said.

"Maybe the American president doesn't care about being isolated today, but we don't mind being six, if needs be", said the French President.

President Donald Trump fired off what appeared to be passive-aggressive tweets to world leaders on Thursday, one day before he is set to meet G7 leaders for a summit in Canada.
