After days of insults, Trump and Trudeau pal around at G7

"I think it will be very positive", Trump said on Friday, without giving details.

Tusk had earlier lamented that the "rules-based worldwide order is being challenged" by current US President Donald Trump.

Despite being at odds with other countries at the G7 in Canada, Trump rated his relationship with their leaders as a "10" - naming Germany's Angela Merkel, French president Emmanuel Macron and Canada's Justin Trudeau, but not the UK's Prime Minister Theresa May.

The president has angered Canada, Mexico and European countries with his recent decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. The president says at the Group of Seven summit: "If they retaliate, they're making a mistake".

"The European Union is brutal to the United States and they know it", Trump said, adding that other leaders acknowledge as much in private. "When we can underscore this, and we see that there's a lot of pressure within the USA, perhaps he will revise his position". "Let us look at history: isolationism is bad for the American people".

The president has been a disruptive force for the global trading order, insisting other countries move to reduce barriers he said have left the US with a trade deficit of more than $800 billion.

Trump often appeared more interested in the unprecedented summit he will hold Tuesday with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, where he said he looks forward to sizing up both Kim and the potential for ending one of the worlds most risky nuclear standoffs.

President Donald Trump is issuing a stern warning to foreign countries not to retaliate against US tariffs on the imports of steel and aluminum.

He then held on to Trump, and pulled his hand towards him, forcing the U.S President, who is 30 years his senior, to break it off.

He is not expected to stay till the end of the summit.

Before departing the G7 summit in Quebec on Saturday, Trump said he wants to make a deal on NAFTA, and he's open to working with the current pact or striking separate agreements with Canada and Mexico - as long as they agree to renegotiate every five years.

The US leader will miss talks about climate change and clean energy, and will have left Canada by the time the other leaders begin closing news conferences likely to be laden with criticism of Washington's policies. "And no subsidies, I even said".

G7 summit 2018 in pictures: World leaders unite in Canada Sat, June 9, 2018 The G7 Summit runs from 8 to 9 June in Charlevoix, Canada.

Donald Trump said "we can't do that anymore" and said it was time for the U.S. to be treated better by the EU, Canada and other trading partners not represented at the summit. He and Trudeau discussed the notion of a bilateral deal when they met Friday, according to a White House statement.

The president defended the "national security" rationale for the tariffs.

Trudeau has made the issue of gender equality a priority for the gathering.

And the British PM urged other countries to support giving the chemical weapons watchdog the power to identify states responsible for attacks such as the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.
