Donald Trump disrupts G7 women's empowerment session by showing up late

The president said the US was "pretty close" to reaching an agreement on the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico and had discussed two types of sunset provisions in which any of the countries could leave the deal.

Trump lashed out at Trudeau after the G7 issued a joint communique on Saturday in which the embattled alliance managed to overcome some differences and find areas of common ground.

He said that he didn't blame them for what he saw as an unbalanced trade relationship which hurts the U.S.

"We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", they said in the statement.

But expectations for any breakthroughs at the two-day Group of Seven meeting in La Malbaie, Quebec, are low.

There'd been speculation Trump would cancel his appearance at the meeting amid widespread criticism from allies over steel and aluminum tariffs imposed by the recent weeks.

"It's a lucky number", Donald Tusk said shortly before the start of the G7 summit.

"In fact, I congratulate leaders of other leaders for so crazily being able to make those trade deals that were so good for their country and bad for the United States".

The G7 - an informal annual summit of democracies with highly developed economies - took place on Friday and Saturday in the Quebec resort town of Charlevoix in Canada, which holds the rotating leadership this year.

Though the USA appears increasingly isolated from its allies, Trump on Saturday insisted that his relationships with other leaders remains "great".

"Nevertheless, I do not consider that with a declaration all is obtained and it is obvious that we will have in the coming weeks, the next months, to continue to work", Macron told reporters.

Before leaving for the Group of Seven Summit in Quebec this morning, Trump mused to reporters in Washington that it was time to re-admit Russian Federation.

"The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a 6 country agreement if need be", he tweeted.

He continued, "We're like the piggy bank that everyone's robbing, and that ends".

Trump's tirade came before he was to leave for Singapore for his historic summit with the North Korean leader North Korea's Kim Jong Un. Mexico slapped a 25% import tariff on USA steel products, as well as 20% on pork products, 25% on bourbon and duties on other agricultural goods including cranberries.
