Trump will stay at G7 for women's rights, but not ecology

But Trump's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum - and eventually other goods, such as German luxury cars - have pushed G7 members to the brink of all-out trade war.

Trump's tweets came after Macron threatened to exclude the United States from the G-7 final statement to be issued in the mountainous tourism destination of Charlevoix. Trump said it should be readmitted, an idea that was unlikely to gain any traction at the G7 gathering, which groups Canada, the United States, Japan, Britain, Italy, France and Germany.

Earlier Thursday, Trudeau offered Trump some qualified kudos on his North Korea peace efforts, along with French President Emmanuel Macron and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Trump's schedule means that while he will sit through the G-7 working session on "gender equality and women's empowerment", but the session on "climate change and clean energy" will kick off without him. "Maybe we should come up with a new slogan", he said.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is hosting the world's most powerful countries at the two-day summit in La Malbaie, in Quebec's Charlevoix region.

"There are disagreements. He's sticking to his guns, and he's going to talk to them", said Larry Kudlow, Trump's top economic adviser, at a briefing on Wednesday.

In his own tweets in French and English, Macron stated that while Trump "may not mind being isolated" the other six leaders meeting in Canada would also not mind signing an agreement among themselves.

Mr. Trump claims France, Canada and other nations are taking advantage of the US on trade. We take them on.

When Mr. Trump was planning to trigger USA withdrawal from NAFTA to mark his 100th day in office, a hastily organized campaign by the Trump administration's pro-trade advisers, along with phone calls from Mr. Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, pulled him back.

The U.S. president is lashing out on several fronts.

Trump's comment on Twitter sets the stage for what could be an uncomfortable confrontation over economic policy on Friday.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called President Trump's new tariffs "insulting" earlier this week, wondering why the US was suddenly treating its Northern neighbor like a national security threat. Canada has countered with a plan to impose tariffs of its own on USA metals and other consumer goods. "Look forward to seeing them tomorrow".

"Prime Minister Trudeau is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the USA and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things.but he doesn't bring up the fact that they charge us up to 300% on dairy - hurting our Farmers, killing our Agriculture!"

The Canadian official responded that "the prime minister and the president have very frank, direct, candid, honest conversations".

And Trump has complained to aides about spending two days in Canada for a summit of world leaders, believing the trip is a distraction from his upcoming Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, according to three people familiar with Trump's views.

Most recently, Trump pulled the USA out of the Iran nuclear agreement, following his earlier decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord.
