Merkel: EU will act against USA tariffs on steel, aluminium - worldwide

Trump later reacted to the photo, saying it was captured during a discussion that was "unrelated to anything".

The picture of the German Chancellor, shared on her Instagram account, has invited hilarious captions and memes on social media with many calling it an "iconic photo" of the summit.

And in a picture released by the Japanese leaders officials, Shinzo Abe looks powerful as he towers over the seated United States leader.

Trump's "America First" message to allies has hardened since he brought hardline national security adviser John Bolton on to his team.

"#G7Charlevoix, second day: A new step has been taken".

Trump was especially "strong" towards Trudeau, ranting about agriculture, and Merkel. "And they understand it's going to happen", Trump said.

Trouble for Trump began before he arrived in Canada.

The G-7 summit was coming down to the wire.

Graham Spruiell, professor in clinical psychiatry, says the problem may continue. "But homicides still get more attention". Bourdain died by suicide. "Our mental health systems are just really struggling across the country", Prof Cerel says.


"He learned", Trump said.

"I can imagine Russia's return".

The German chancellor also said she is not ready to "give up on G7" but would seek dialogue with Russian Federation and try to "work very closely" with Japan, Canada, India and China.

Allowing Russia back into the G-7 is an unpopular idea among the other countries. She also said the United States president wasn't entirely wrong in pressing Germany to increase defence spending. Shortly afterward, the White House issued a separate photo showing a sitting Trump speaking as Merkel, Abe and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau listen. Trump reportedly missed Trudeau's opening remarks.

The leaders had been meeting at the Group of Seven summit in Quebec, Canada over the weekend. Trump initially refused to sign the statement, but agreed to sign it prior to his departure. "It's kind of insulting", said Trudeau, noting that many "Canadians fought side-by-side with American soldiers".

The United States' closest trading partners - the EU, Canada and Mexico - have vowed to impose retaliatory tariffs on scores of USA products beginning in the coming weeks. The president, en route to Singapore, lashed out at the Canadian leader via Twitter, stating that the US will not endorse the communique. Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%. "International cooperation cannot depend on anger or small words".

Trump's late arrival also highlighted his early departure.

There was much speculation at the G7 summit about whether the leaders would be able to agree on enough to issue a joint communiqué, given serious differences over trade and climate change policies.
