Trump tweeted: "Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!"

Decided on following Canada's example, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Sunday that the European Union would implement counter-measures against the US tariffs on steel and aluminium, "voicing regret about President Donald Trump's abrupt decision to withdraw support for a G7 communique", Reuters reports.

The proposal, made during the two-day Group of Seven nations summit in La Malbaie, Quebec, was strongly supported by other leaders present, the official said, adding that European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said he was ready to invest personally in it. Juncker has also offered to visit Washington for a common assessment of EU-US trade to help resolve the dispute, an official said.

Friday's trade session, where G7 allies planned to confront the US president over trade tariffs, had "some emotions" but was civilized and diplomatic, said the official who followed the talks.

Closer home, Indian Twitter users spotted an opportunity to make the photo more relatable by editing Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Trump's place, asking when they would receive the Rs 15 lakhs Bharatiya Janata Party leaders promised each Indian would receive if they were voted into power in 2014.

Trump said that his ultimate goal was the elimination of all trade duties.

Trudeau later said he reiterated to Trump that tariffs will harm industries and workers on both sides of the U.S. The EU has already said it will announce countermeasures against Trump's metals tariffs on July 1.

The calamitous summit ended in disarray after Trump broadsided his allies by disavowing a joint statement the U.S. had agreed to.

Trump left the meeting between the world's leading industrialized countries with a warning to USA allies, saying that if they don't remove trade barriers with the US then they will face consequences.

Describing her impression from Trump's behavior at the summit as "disillusionment", Merkel said that "we will not allow ourselves to be deceived again and again" and that Europe will not permit the American president to do "whatever he pleases". "Instead, we act then too", Merkel said in an unusually combative tone. She further said that the U.S. tariffs were "illegal and unjustified" and Canada did not believe in using "ad hominem attacks".

Responding to the threat of new tariffs against the United States, he said: "Fair trade is now to be called fool trade".

Merkel's comment was one of two nods to Trump during her hourlong ARD interview after her return from the G-7.
