Trump's imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs on his G7 partners, as well as broader disagreements on trade and climate change, are setting the stage for some tense face-to-face meetings here Friday after Trump's arrival at the Quebec summit.
US President Donald Trump will skip scheduled sessions on climate change, clean energy and oceans during the two-day G7 Summit which is slated to begin on Friday in Quebec, Canada, the White House announced.
"Because these six represent values, represent an economic market, and more than anything, represent a real force at the worldwide level today".
But Mr Trump showed no sign of backing down on Thursday, first taking to Twitter to accuse both France and Canada of imposing massive tariffs on U.S. goods and then accusing Trudeau of "being so indignant".
"The American president may not mind being isolated, " Macron tweeted, "but neither do we mind signing a six-country agreement if need be".
"They want to punish us, but ... the Americans will pay a big price for the product they want from us", said Regis Gauthier, shortly after he chatted with Trudeau while the prime minister greeted people at the food court.
It's safe to say this is going to be one interesting trip.
As tempers frayed, Trump had a ready retort, via tweet: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers". Washington has demanded that Beijing take steps to open its markets further to USA goods.
Trump, who met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Washington before the summit, may be more preoccupied with next week's historic nuclear summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Much of his fellow members' anger stems from Trump's recent imposition of tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, but relations had already been soured by the United States pullout from an worldwide climate accord and a deal created to contain Iran's nuclear program. "If it doesn't happen, we come out even better".
Mr Kudlow described the discontent among USA allies as being like a "family quarrel" but said that the White House was confident that talks would bring a solution.
Edward Alden, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, said this marked the lowest point in decades in Canada-U.S. relations, describing the two countries as allies that have "fought and died alongside each other" since World War I. "So I think his cause is just and I think the rest of the world agrees with him".
His plea for unity may fail, even within the European Union.
The comments coincide with other claims in a report by the Washington Post, which claims that Trump has hit out at May's "political correctness" in private, stating that May is too anxious about offending other people.
The summit threatens to mark the outer limit of global patience for the avowed nationalistic Trump, as leaders who had sought to cajole and "bromance" the president are embracing more hard-nosed tactics.
Macron also threatened to leave Trump out of the G7 alliance.
Trump may have less to fear than slow-growing Europe and Japan from a trade war in terms of economic losses if the "G6" pushes back on tariffs.
