Trump blasted Trudeau in a pair of tweets late Saturday after leaving the Group of Seven (G-7) summit.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday that he has asked U.S. representatives not to endorse the joint communique put out by the Group of Seven leaders after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's "false statements" at a news conference.

Mr. Trudeau's office responded to Mr. Trump's tweets accusing the Canadian leader of "false statements" on Saturday, saying that the Prime Minister said nothing during the G7 summit that he had not said previously.

However, the US president said that after his departure to Singapore the prime minister said that "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he "will not be pushed around".

In the end, the long charm offensive by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to avoid the ire of U.S. President Donald Trump failed just hours after success seemed closest, with Trump raining insults as Trudeau closed what seemed like a triumphant global summit.

The outburst suggested that any deal had collapsed and his more or less explicit threat to impose sanctions on imports of cars will outrage his ostensible allies - in particular Germany and Canada who produce many for the large United States market.

"Things are probably going to get worse before the United States changes its position", Fratto said.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", he reportedly added. But two sources close to the government said the country isn't looking to cut or strain ties with the USA regardless of any rhetoric out of the Trump administration because "we need to be able to play well in the sandbox", as one put it.

Trump says they will either have a better agreement on NAFTA or two deals involving separate trade deals with both Canada and Mexico.

In response, Trudeau's spokesman said the federal government was focused on what was accomplished at the summit.

Trump said Friday he thinks the group will produce a joint statement.

"He says that we are the problem with tariffs".

Sticking points also remain in the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta) renegotiations between Canada, the USA and Mexico, despite it being a key topic during the bilateral meeting between Mr Trump and Canadian PM Justin Trudeau.

"Prime Minister Trudeau is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the USA and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things.but he doesn't bring up the fact that they charge us up to 300 percent on dairy - hurting our Farmers, killing our Agriculture!"

Mr. Trudeau, along with other leaders of the G-7, have criticized Mr. Trump's proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum to stop the allies from taking "advantage" of the U.S.

"We have a very good relationship with President Trump, we work with President Trump, the United Kingdom has a very good relationship with the U.S.", she said.

"We commit to modernize the WTO to make it more fair as soon as possible".

"Very dishonest & weak", Trump continued.

The late arrival at a session, where the G7 leaders were discussing gender equality and women's empowerment sparked concerns that the U.S. president might not participate at all in Saturday's meetings.
