Trump throws G7 into disarray with tweets after he leaves

US President Donald Trump has refused to endorse the Group of Seven leaders' summit statement in retaliation to what he has called "false statements" from the Canadian Prime Minister, despite the communique having already been released to the public.

Trump left the G7 summit in Canada early, then wrote on Twitter that Trudeau's remarks, including that his country would not be pushed around, "were very dishonest and weak".

While talking tough with USA allies such as Canada and the EU, Trump repeated his call for Russian Federation to be allowed back into the elite club, which includes Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the US and Japan.

Expressing his frustration, Trump said, " Can't do that.

"This is what a G7 is supposed to be about - all of us pulling together and doing things that matter for our citizens and for the world", Trudeau said. "We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the #G7 summit", spokesman Cameron Ahmad said.

"Tariffs are going to come way down because we people can not continue to do that".

A French official insisted France and its fellow G7 European nations were maintaining their support for the communique and said anyone departing from the commitments made at the summit would be showing their "incoherence and inconsistency".

The Canadian Press has learned the Trudeau government is planning to announce a 400-million-dollar investment to help send the world's poorest girls to school.

The president says he won't endorse the joint statement.

All the G7 nations have agreed at their summit in Canada on the importance of a "rules-based trading system", despite tensions with the US.

"We have a very good relationship with President Trump, we work with President Trump, the United Kingdom has a very good relationship with the USA", she said.

Mr. Trump's tweets taking aim at the leader of a country that has always been a United States ally came after the President left the G7 summit in Canada to travel to Singapore ahead of a planned diplomatic meeting with North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un, CNN reported.

Trudeau, who has been sparring with Mr. Trump on trade in recent days, announced at the conclusion of the G-7 summit in Canada that the retaliatory tariffs will go into effect July 1.

Saturday's picture was not the first awkward moment between Trump and Merkel, who makes no secret of her disagreement with the American leader's approach on trade, his rejection of the deal to limit Iran's nuclear program and his decision to take the United States out of the global Paris deal to fight climate change. "Angela and Emmanuel and Justin, I would say the relationshiip is a 10", he said.

The summit was wrapping up just as Chinese President Xi Jinping began hosting the leaders of Russian Federation and Iran at a regional security meeting in a symbol of the power-play between East and West.

The report found that firearms were the most common method of suicide for both those with and without mental illnesses. But local mental health advocates said they are also seeing younger people struggling with suicidal impulses.


At the summit, Trump played a wild card, suggesting that rather than both sides boosting retaliatory tariffs - as he has just done on steel and aluminum - they could declare for entirely free trade in the G7 zone.
