G7 leaders defend summit after Trump disowns free trade communique

Отказ Дональда Трампа подписать итоговый документ G7 шокировал участников саммита Photo shared by Angela Merkel hints at tension at G7

Time magazine attempted to analyze the body language of the people depicted in the photograph, noting that it's easy to perceive Trump as "weak and defensive", and that "he looks like he's getting grilled, taken to task for not acting like his predecessor".

But some European states have baulked at some of his ideas for closer integration, including a hefty eurozone budget, and Merkel has been much more reticent than Macron would like.

Berlin, Germany―World Trade Organization chief Roberto Azevedo warned Monday against a damaging "escalation" of trade tensions between the United States and other major economies, following a divisive G7 summit.

Asked about Trump's threat to target U.S. tariffs against cars - a vital industry for Germany which supports over 800,000 jobs - "we will have to think again about what we'll do", Merkel said.

So with the internet being the internet - memes, paintings, and captions are happening.

Russia has not released its hold on Crimea and has not been willing to negotiate on the Minsk Protocol agreement, which would ease the Russian occupation of the region; most recently, 14 Russian nationals were indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for interfering with the 2016 US election, including the former business partner (and suspected Russian spy) of Paul Manafort, Trump's one-time campaign manager.

Despite Trump's withdrawal and decision to double down on restricting foreign goods entering the USA market, Merkel insisted that she would continue to hold talks and work together with the president.

But the humor could not mask a deep sense of unease that the end of the transatlantic partnership was nigh.

This picture from G7 summit 'speaks a thousand words' on global power dynamics

"For today, I think it's much more important to convince our American partners to strengthen our format as guarantor of world order, than to look for something new, more challenging, more hard", EU President Donald Tusk said Friday.

"First of all, we'll try and see if we can prevent this".

"The situation isn't very nice", Merkel said.

Merkel made the remark during an interview with Germany's ARD television broadcaster following the conclusion of the summit in Quebec. "Europe United is the answer to America First". "After a long day of work and very direct dialogue, we are actively seeking an ambitious agreement", an English translation of Macron's tweet reads.

Macron sees Merkel's support as crucial to carrying out his ambitious European Union reform agenda.

She said the European Union would "act" against the USA trade measures, which European leaders regard as going against the rules of the World Trade Organization.

But with an eye to the trade dispute, she added, "we won't be bamboozled - we will take action".
