PICTURE: Trump sits defiant against G7 leaders

Merkel-Trump G7 face-off photo headed for history books

In response to Mr Trump's decision to withhold USA support for the summit conclusions, a senior United Kingdom government source said: "We stand by the commitments made in the G7 communique".

Just like Canada, the European Union is preparing counter-measures against USA tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, Merkel said.

"International cooperation can't depend on anger and small words". Let's be serious and worthy of our people. We stick to it. We are sticking to them and whoever reneges on them is showing incoherence and inconsistency.

"It's actually not a real surprise". We have seen this with the climate agreement or the Iran deal.

"You can destroy an incredible amount of trust very quickly in a tweet", he said. "To build that up again will take much longer", he told reporters in Berlin.

"One will be that we will have to represent our interests in Europe as much more closed from the outside. And that's why we need to increase our defence spending", Merkel said. Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Canada are the other members of the G7.

Trump appeared to acquiesce to Merkel and other leaders' positions, as the G-7 issued a joint statement to uphold "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" at the end of the two-day summit.

Tensions between the USA and the European Union saw the G7 summit end in chaos after Mr Trump refused to sign the joint statement of world leaders.

Trump's angry tweets leave G7 in disarray; Abe in delicate situation
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has vowed retaliatory action next month over U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminium. What did Trudeau and Trump say? He did him a favor and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique.

Mr Trump on Saturday threw the G-7's efforts to show a united front into disarray after he became angry with Mr Trudeau, and said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive auto industry.

Merkel said that Trump would probably retaliate by implementing new tariffs on German vehicles.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", Trudeau said. Shortly after that statement was published online, Trump complained about comments made by Trudeau and revoked his support.

New Italian premier Giuseppe Conte also took a similar line, with his press team tweeting an image of the leader taking charge as he read to the group at the two-day summit in Canada.

"It's going to change", he said. He reiterated his longstanding view that the USA has been taken advantage of in global trade, adding, "We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing, and that ends".

On Sunday, Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland called the tariffs illegal and insulting.

"We won't allow ourselves be ripped off again and again".
