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.

President Donald Trump leaves the main building alongside White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during the G7 Summit on June 9, 2018 in Quebec City, Canada.

He went on to personally criticize Trudeau, whom he said "acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings 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 two-day summit has been marred by a tit-for-tat exchanges of hostile tweets, with U.S. trading partners furious over Trump's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico as part of his "America First" agenda. To United States, frankly, it would be a good thing but I'm not looking to do that. "Many of the current discussions about trade, especially with the USA, despite the common commitment, will continue".

"Russia should be in this meeting, why are we having a meeting without Russian Federation in this meeting?' Trump said".

Syria (73), Lebanon (79), Kosovo (141) and Gibraltar (195) achieved their best ever positions in the rankings. The only change to the top 10 saw Poland rise two places to eighth, leapfrogging Chile and Spain.

But by insisting on re-negotiating every five years, Trump is diametrically opposed with Canada, which says the sunset clause would create perpetual uncertainty and harm long-term investment.

Earlier in the day, Trudeau said that the communique was agreed by all countries. "The United States has been taken advantage of for decades and decades", Mr. Trump told reporters, adding that did not blame G7 leaders for the "unfair" trade deals. "I think it will be very positive", Trump said on Friday, without giving details.

He said the USA required fair access to markets and an end to unfair trade practices, telling reporters the "United States has been taken advantage of for decades and decades". "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

Mr Trump says tariffs are needed to reverse America's trade deficit.

And he said he had told Trump "it would be with regret but it would be with absolute clarity and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1, applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applied to us".

The money raised exceeds the $1.3 billion United States over three years that a coalition of 30 non-governmental organizations had called on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to raise as part of his chairmanship of the G7 this year. "We have a tremendous trade imbalance".

Trump said the final outcome would lead either to a better agreement on NAFTA or separate trade deals with both Canada and Mexico.

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.
