France, Europe stand by G7 statement after Trump U-turn: French official

US President Donald Trump speaks following a meeting on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington DC

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Bill Morneau said that message was communicated clearly to Trump during his meetings at the G7 leaders' summit, which is wrapping up Saturday.

Trump, who repeated that his tariffs are meant to protect US industry and workers from unfair worldwide competition, said he had suggested to the other G7 leaders that all trade barriers, including tariffs and subsidies, be eliminated.

Trudeau closed the G7 summit by issuing a strong rebuke Trump's trade threats, calling them "kind of insulting" and saying they would be met with retaliatory measures from July.

Trump had told Trudeau any retaliation would be a mistake and the prime minister agreed that it was "not something we want to do".

The G-7 used to be the G-8, when Russian Federation was a member along with Britain, Germany, Italy, Canada, the United States, France and Japan.

At his news conference, Mr.Trump again called for Russian Federation to reinstated to the G7, a suggestion rejected by all the leaders, expect Italy's new populist Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.

Mr. Trump, though, said conversations were cordial and respectful at the summit.

Before the summit, finance ministers from the other six countries that form the Group of 7, or G-7, condemned Mr Trump's trade decisions in an extraordinary rebuke of a member nation's president.

"And so began a long litany of recriminations, somewhat bitter reports that the United States was treated unfairly, that the trading system was totally unfavorable to the United States, the American economy, American workers, the middle class", the official said.

Fears of a looming trade war were heightened last week after all the G7 nations announced plans to retaliate against Trump's tariffs with tariffs of their own. "We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies".

The French president tweeted his intentions.

"We have a tremendous trade imbalance", Trump said during Saturday's press conference.

"These are jointly shared principles, although the pitfalls lie in the details", she said in a press conference, adding that she expected a joint G7 statement on trade would be issued at the end of the summit. The president is flying to Singapore to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

He said he didn't blame the other world leaders, saying their countries struck good deals at America's expense, and said he blamed previous us presidents.
