G7 row: Emmanuel Macron attacks Donald Trump's 'fits of anger'

That G7 photo: Who’s trumping whom? It’s perspective, stupid

"Actually, we were just talking - the whole group - about something unrelated to everything, very friendly".

But within minutes of the official summit communiqué, Trump lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau accusing him of making "false statements" during the closing news conference.

"I'm not saying that none of the things he wants will happen", Merkel said in an interview with ARD public television.

Trump revoked his administration's support for the G-7 communique after Trudeau's news conference. She also doubted if the United States leader still has what she called "the spirit of G7".

She also spoke about Trump's suggestion that Russian Federation be readmitted to the G-7, from which it was booted after its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.

"There are still good reasons to continue our fight [aimed at keeping close transatlantic partnership], even though we can not just rely on it anymore", she added.

Within Merkel's CDU party too, some are openly championing Seehofer's vision, including Saxony state premier Michael Kretschmer. Instead, she said that she would still try to achieve compromises through dialogue and "go her own way" if the dialogue brings no results.

Trump Wants to Pull U.S. Troops out of S.Korea

Banned former Federation Internationale de Football Association president Sepp Blatter to attend World Cup in Russia
President Donald Trump, who combined support for the bid with a veiled threat to those that planned to vote for competing offers. Canada's only appearance at the World Cup came in 1986 when it loss all three of its games and crashed out in the first round.

Trudeau, who announced that the G7 had issued a joint communique, had to suffer the wrath of Trump.

The German chancellor's comments on Sunday come after Trudeau announced that Canada would implement its own retaliatory tariffs on the U.S. Trump had given Canada, the European Union and Mexico temporary exemptions from the steel and aluminum tariffs he first announced in March, but said at the end of May that he would be ending the exemptions.

"We won't let ourselves be ripped off again and again", she said, referring to the new American tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

It was a picture that, by several accounts, summed up the tense G7 summit over the weekend in Quebec, Canada.

The US and its allies have been locked in a bitter dispute of trade tariffs and perceived trade "inequality" for quite some time. The move immediately provoked an angry reaction from the European Union, which already presented its own list of American goods that will be taxed in retaliation to the USA move.

Trump cited national security in imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum tariffs, a move that sparked tension at last week's summit of Group of Seven leaders.

Trump appeared to acquiesce to Merkel and other leaders' positions, as the G-7 issued a joint statement to uphold "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" at the end of the two-day summit.
