He said: "Why are we having a meeting without Russian Federation in the meeting?"

"What worries me most, however, is the fact that the rules-based global order is being challenged, quite surprisingly not by the usual suspects but by its main architect and guarantor, the USA".

This will be Trump's second summit of the G-7, an informal gathering that meets every year under a rotating chairmanship.

Before traveling to Singapore for what's nearly sure to be a tense, high-stakes summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, President Donald Trump first travels to Canada Friday to attend what's shaping up to be a hard G7 summit amid tensions over tariffs with American allies. G7 chiefs have largely praised Trump for his efforts to stabilize the Korean peninsula, but they are unhappy he pulled out of an worldwide agreement to limit Iran's nuclear ambitions.

Earlier, Mr Trudeau had spoken of retaliatory measures that Canada would take next month in response to Mr Trump's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

Leaders have struggled to find ways of getting through to Trump and persuading him to budge from his pre-established positions.

The remark seemed destined to only escalate the existing tensions between Trump and the six other leaders gathered at a golf resort here.

President Donald Trump's planned meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron at the G7 is being pushed back to late Friday afternoon after a delayed departure from the White House. We can't pose a security threat to the United States, and I know that Americans understand that. Trump is unlikely to back away from the nationalistic policies that have frustrated and unnerved allies but which he sees as key promises to his most loyal voters. Macron added that the United States is the historical ally of France, and Paris needs the support of Washington.

The BBC parsed the picture by identifying all nine individuals in it, including British Prime Minister Theresa May, who is barely visible, and Larry Kudlow, head of Trump's National Economic Council as well as several Japanese officials and us national security adviser John Bolton. Tell us in the comment section below. More to come on the G7 Summit today.

She would also tell other leaders that rather than imposing tariffs on each other, pressure should be increased on China to reduce its excess steel capacity, the person said.

"We're going to deal with the unfair trade practices".
