The announcement and Trump's planned tariffs have also put him on a collision course with Trudeau, leader of another key USA ally.
Tensions between the two allies increased following the Group of Seven summit in Quebec this weekend, when Trump met with leaders of Canada, Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan to discuss economic issues facing the nations, including trade relations.
Another picture appears to show the 71-year-old Trump wincing slightly as he struggles to get to grips with his 40-year-old counterpart.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", he said.
At the end of the summit, Trudeau held a press conference where he called Trump's tariff talk "kind of insulting", and said that "it would be with regret but it would be with absolute certainty and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1st, applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that Americans have unjustly applied to us".
Trump repeatedly insisted America's allies would yield to his trade demands and that Washington would crush any opposition in a potential trade war. Trump blamed former President Barack Obama, instead of Putin, for the annexation.
Although Canada and Mexico say the idea is unworkable, Trump told reporters on Saturday that the new deal would contain such a provision.
G7 leaders had meant to use the summit to confront Trump on the tariffs, which they have described as protectionist and a threat to the global economy.
"We spend two days working out a (joint) statement and commitments".
He blamed past world leaders, including past presidents, for that situation, but said the current crew - including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau - now know that the "gig is up". He also attacked Trudeau's character, calling the Liberal Party leader meek, weak and dishonest.
"In the name of the Western allies, he ought to come out today and wish President Trump well in the negotiations, instead of taking potshots at us", Kudlow said. "And we charge nothing", Trump said.
