G-7 summit with Trump a 'sobering' experience

Donald Trump withdraws endorsement of G7 joint statement, slams Trudeau

In an echo of Cold War meetings on neutral ground, Austria is encouraging the United States to hold a summit in Vienna, a White House official said last week.

"I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do because Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said. "The differences in opinion have not been taken off the table".

Leading up to the meetings, Trump, Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron had suggested the potential for a tough tone, though they were cordial in face-to-face meetings.

Trump said it should be readmitted, an idea that was unlikely to gain any traction at the G7 gathering, which groups Canada, the United States, Japan, Britain, Italy, France and Germany. 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.

Earlier on Saturday, Trump arrived late for a breakfast G7 discussion on gender equality, with summit host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, kicking off things off without waiting for those he described as "stragglers" to arrive. Instead, she said that she would still try to achieve compromises through dialogue and "go her own way" if the dialogue brings no results.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel posted an extraordinary picture from this weekend's G7 summit in Canada.

"I will blame them if they don't act smart and do what they have to do because they have no choice", he said. Russian Federation was suspended from the group - then known as the G8 - in 2014 after the majority of member countries allied against its annexation of Crimea.

Mr Trudeau said he had reiterated to Mr Trump, who left the G7 meeting before it ended, that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the US-Canada border. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., also called Trudeau's comments a stab in the back to Trump.
