Trump turns nasty against allies at G-7

Talks with Trump are like sausages, says French President Macron: Report

"No, he's happy", Trump said.

"When we're at war with our allies, if we need something, we don't have them to turn to", said Conley, now with the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.

Since we live in a world with social media, the publication of the photo kicked off something akin to a worldwide caption contest in which clever writers have been rewarded for their comedic quips with retweets, likes, favorites and new followers. The annual G7 conference is usually a fairly news-free endeavor, with agreements on the global economy hammered out well before world leaders gather for two days of talks.

US President Donald Trump is seated amid a crowd of officials.

Germany's Angela Merkel called for a spirit of "compromise" on reforming the euro zone at a meeting on Thursday (19 April) with French President Emmanuel Macron, who pressed for "solidarity" among members of the currency union. An aide will take his place, the White House said.

Robertson said there are other issues on which there will be agreement and the primary significance of these meetings anyhow is that "leaders get together and have those frank discussions".

Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, said that Trump's determination to bait his allies over trade and diplomatic engagements "would only play into the hands of those who seek a new post-West order where liberal democracy and fundamental freedoms would cease to exist".

Slamming Trump for "unproductive" tariffs that are "unilateral and illegal" and preventing other nations from dealing with Iran, Macron said that nothing "is forever" and even Trump's presidency would come to an end. Macron added that the United States is the historical ally of France, and Paris needs the support of Washington.

Back in Europe, the magazine for Sueddeutsche Zeitung, one of the largest daily newspapers in Germany, had a different view: that of an exasperated mother speaking to her insolent son.

In remarks to reporters before the leaving for the summit, Trump suggested Russian Federation should be included in the meeting of major industrialized countries.

Mr. Trump did smile and wave with the other leaders at the traditional posed "family photo", on a bluff high above the St. Lawrence River, despite the obvious tensions.

Trump made the comments in tweets from Air Force One as he headed to Singapore for his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

If there was any hope the fissures might be repaired before Trump arrived, it was dashed on Friday morning when the President told reporters he was open to reinstating Russia's participation in the group, which was suspended after Moscow's incursion into Ukraine in 2013.

While trade is expected to dominate, Trudeau also wants to focus on gender equality and climate change.

Trump, who is in Singapore for negotiations with North Korea, continued to rip into U.S. trading partners late Sunday night Eastern Time, repeating complaints about the United States trade deficit and contributions to NATO.
