President Donald Trump fired off what appeared to be some passive-aggressive tweets to world leaders on Thursday, one day before he is set to meet G7 leaders for a summit in Canada.
Last year, at Trump's first G-7 meeting, he agreed to sign on to the joint statement, even embracing language that the leaders of Europe and Canada have accused the United States of now violating.

In two tweets Thursday evening, Trump accused the Canadian prime minister, as well as French President Emmanuel Macron, of "charging the USA massive tariffs" and creating "non-monetary barriers".
Putin never showed, and President Trump is apparently still pining for the Russian president's approval. He has sought to renegotiate trade agreements and threatened to impose tariffs on countries that resisted.
