May characterized her relationship with Trump as "very good".
A French presidential official described the Friday session as "extraordinary", saying leaders who had vowed to confront Mr Trump over his decision to impose tariffs on U.S. allies last week as part of his "America First" agenda, showered Mr Trump with data one after the other. But she added that Britain had expressed its "deep disappointment at the unjustified decision by the U.S.to apply tariffs to European Union steel and aluminum imports".
Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska said Trump's comments on eliminating tariffs among G7 nations would be "tremendous news" if the President is serious about the issue, adding, "I would happily carry his bag to every single meeting of those negotiations".
In a last-minute twist-by-tweet, Donald Trump lashed out, again.
"The nature of the debate we had was rather appeasement and it stopped the escalation in terms of behavior", Macron, who had exchanged terse Twitter messages with Trump in the run-up to the summit, told reporters. "Look forward to seeing them tomorrow". "Deliberations on the fringes of the official agenda".
One U.S. official told Breitbart News Economics and Finance Editor John Carney that world leaders were mistaken if they believed President Trump would soften his position on tariffs.
Asked about Trump's tariffs in March, Spain's Economy Minister Roman Escolano said that most countries at the summit shared the "belief that protectionism is a huge historical mistake".
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he will impose retaliatory measures to answer President Trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum: "Canadians: we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".
President Trump on Saturday doubled down on his calls for Russian Federation to be reinstated to the G-7 group of nations, saying that the group would be more meaningful if that country could be brought back into the fold.
Trump had come to Quebec insisting on his long-standing claim that America has been exploited for too long by existing trade arrangements - and he was met by counterparts equally determined to protect the "rules-based" global system.
"They do so much more business with us than we do with them ... the numbers are so astronomically against them? we win that war a thousand times out of a thousand". He says that Kim has a one-time shot to make a better situation for his country, and he could do that by making a deal with the U.S. Trump also said that he would know in the first minute of the meeting whether it would be successful just based off of his interactions with Kim - the touch, the feel.
But their facts, figures and plaintive explanations - including about Europeans' love of Apple iPhones, or that there can be trade imbalances between countries in the EU's single market that have zero tariffs between them - fell on deaf ears.
As soon as the summit ended in Canada, after alienating America's most steadfast allies, Donald Trump jetted for Singapore for a historic meeting with Kim Jong Un - one of the few world leaders who might be even more erratic and unpredictable than he is. "And I don't blame other leaders for that".
