Earlier in the day, the USA leader tweeted that he had instructed his representatives not to sign the statement, hours after the summit's host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, announced all countries had supported it.
President Donald Trump said he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were waiting for a final draft of a joint statement by G-7 leaders when an iconic photograph was taken over the weekend showing the two leaders in what appeared to be a confrontation.
The captions reads: "Day two of the G7 summit in Canada: spontaneous meeting between two working sessions".
"There remain good reasons to fight for the transatlantic partnership", she said, adding that the current round of trade tariffs that the U.S. and European Union have imposed on each other did not signal the end of a partnership. In the U.S. version, we see Mr Trump face on, apparently calm, leaning back confidently with a sceptical, nearly sarcastic air, his arms crossed in a rebuff to the other leaders, bent towards him pleadingly.
The leaders discussed trade in their afternoon group meeting, touching on the World Trade Organization, the North American Free Trade Agreement, and the steel and aluminum tariffs that Trump recently imposed on Canada and the European Union, the Canadian official said.
President Trump left the meeting half-way, warning the G7 nations that if they don't remove trade barriers with the USA, they will face consequences.

Later on Saturday, after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said all seven nations had signed a joint communique at the end of the summit, Trump angrily lashed out on Twitter, stating the USA would not endorse the statement.
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. "Instead, we act then too", Merkel said in an unusually combative tone.
"I have instructed our US Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the US Market!"
Merkel did not know Trump planned to do this and only found out he pulled out from the "arduously negotiated" declaration while she was returning from the summit. After hearing Canadian prime minister's comments vowing to retaliate for United States tariffs on steel and aluminum during a news conference, Trump tweeted that Trudeau had made "false statements", and White House officials had harsh criticism for Trudeau during the Sunday morning news programs.
"We're going to deal with the unfair trade practices".
Merkel said that Trump would probably retaliate by implementing new tariffs on German vehicles.
