Shortly after Trudeau said that he was "happy to announce that we have released a joint communique by all seven countries" indicating that the USA had signed on, Trump announced the U.S. would reverse its decision and not sign on to the statement after all.
Trump also took aim at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive automobile industry, throwing G7 efforts to show a united front into disarray.
"If the expectation was that a weekend in handsome Charlevoix with all sorts of lovely people was going to transform the president's outlook in the world", the Canadian prime minister said, "then we didn't quite reach that bar".
Kudlow said the USA had spent the summit negotiating in "good faith" with Trudeau and the other assembled leaders, and that the U.S. had planned to sign the communique until Trudeau's news conference, which Kudlow called a "sophomoric play".
"International cooperation can't depend on anger and small words". "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.
Trump, who left the summit early for his Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, took umbrage.
Trump, who repeated that his tariffs are meant to protect USA industry and workers from unfair global competition, told reporters he had suggested to the other G7 leaders that all trade barriers, including tariffs and subsidies, be eliminated.
"Trump did not want to be isolated", Macron said.

The mayor of Naples, who has repeatedly clashed with the League leader , said he would welcome in the humanitarian boat. However, Mr Salvini does not have authority over the ports and it was not immediately clear if his line would hold.
He told the G7 leaders during the summit that the United States wanted a quick end to trade practices that he said have led to an exodus of American companies and jobs to other countries.
During the discussions with the G7 leaders, Trump had warned that they could risk losing access to the world's largest economy if they refuse to reduce trade barriers with the U.S.
At his closing news conference, Trudeau had repeated his prior statements that he believed the US's national-security rationale for imposing steel and aluminum tariffs was "insulting", and that Canada would impose retaliatory tariffs.
But during his comments today, Trump raised multiple options for Nafta, including a potential new deal or the possibility of doing separate deals with Mexico and Canada, effectively cleaving the longtime agreement in two.
"On NAFTA we either leave it the way it is as a three-some deal with Canada, the United States and Mexico and change it very substantially - we're talking about very big changes".
G7 members Germany and France said they stood by the communique despite Trump's decision. "It is in everyone's interest", he said on Twitter according to an English translation.
A German government spokesman also said that Berlin stands by the jointly agreed G7 communique in which leaders underlined the crucial role of a rules-based worldwide trading system and promised to fight protectionism.
The president also referred to Trudeau's "false statements", which he didn't explain.
"The action which Canada has objected to, and will continue to object to very strongly, was the illegal and unjustified imposition of tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum".
Putin said he shares Trump's expression of concern about a renewed arms race expressed in a March phone call . He added that Moscow will continue to honor its obligations under the Iranian nuclear deal.
Morgan Bulman, 24, fondly remembered spending a summer watching " No Reservations " and called Bourdain's death a "personal loss". Years of hard work in kitchens around Manhattan, and as executive chef at Brasserie Les Halles, finally paid off.
Kim's personality profile then may well focus into the strategy for the summit, as will Trump's own attitude on the encounter. He said on Thursday that he didn't think he had to prepare very much for the summit and that "it's about attitude".
