G7 photograph memifies Trump diplomacy

Earlier that day, Trump also tweeted: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the USA massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

Mr. Trudeau, though, said Canada would move forward with retaliatory measures in response to tariffs on metal.

The US president, who is in Singapore for a landmark summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, tweeted on Monday that America was paying disproportionately more towards the costs of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (Nato) than fellow members.

The president concluded his tweetstorm by saying, "Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on Trade anymore. And that's a very profitable answer, if we have to do it", Trump said in a bewildering press conference before he departed Canada, insisting that the summit was a success and the level of relationship he shared with the G7 leaders was a10 on a scale of one to ten.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called President Donald Trump's choice to break ranks with USA allies-by backing out of a joint statement on social media and then deride foreign leaders-"a little depressing". In his turn, Trump announced that the U.S. would be looking to impose tariffs on vehicle imports.

They made their online presence known with a tweet that says, 'Just so you know, yes it's true. "We must put the American worker first!" he later wrote.

Trudeau's office cast doubt over the genuineness of Trump's offense at the prime minister's remarks, pointing out that Trudeau's messages simply reiterated his position before the summit, that he will oppose attempts to bully Canada on trade.

Under his administration, the world's largest economy has undermined the multilateral orders it created and given up its leading role in the G7 as promoter of free and fair global trade based on World Trade Organization rules, economists say.

It was left to Trump's aides to figure out how to explain Trump's airing of grievances against trading partners instead of focusing on his coming talks with Kim, which the president's supporters hope will provide him with a major foreign policy win. The prime minister had played down divisions between the United States and the six other members of the G-7.

Media captionDairy wars: Why is Trump threatening Canada over milk?

"He was polarizing. He really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow, who literally at times was shaking with rage, said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Trump is seeking additional tariffs of as much as 25 percent on automobile imports, up from 2.5 percent, in a move that, if realized, could deal a huge blow to major auto exporters Japan and Germany.

As he flew from Canada to Singapore on Saturday night, Mr Trump displayed his ire via Twitter, which he also employed to insult Mr Trudeau as "dishonest" and "weak". Does anybody believe that makes sense?

"Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal", he tweeted.

Navarro was the second Trump official to target Trudeau in their Sunday show appearance after National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow said Trudeau's comments were a "diplomatic betrayal".

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Navarro stated.

World leaders at the summit believed they had a deal until the USA president pulled out of the previously agreed communique, which represented a minimal show of unity amid deep disagreements between Trump and the other leaders over trade.
