Donald Trump's G7 Tweets Were Depressing, Says Angela Merkel

The G7 summit is coming down to the wire.

"This has solidified my belief that we, Europeans, should decide our fate by ourselves", the German leader said, calling on EU to be more active in defending its values and principles.

The center-right leader said a tariff-free area among G7 allies would be an ideal outcome, but she made clear that any talks about such a trade bloc would have to include non-tariff barriers to trade as well as free access to public tenders.

Jeremy Corbyn said Donald Trump was to blame for the summit's "failure".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel's viral photo staring down President Trump last weekend is just one of many moments captured during the Group of Seven summit - many seem to show conflicting stories.

In a statement to MPs on the summit, Mrs May praised Mr Trudeau's "skilful" handling of proceedings and said the leaders had established "common ground" on a range of matters.

The United States imposed a 25-percent tariff on steel imports and a 10-percent duty on aluminum imports in March but suspended the tariffs on Canada, Mexico, several other states and the European Union in order to attempt to negotiate a better deal. "Instead, we act then too", were Merkel's words who used a rather strong language she usually avoids. He has directed US officials "not to endorse" the G-7 joint statement, and personally insulted Trudeau in a series of Twitter posts.

But it turns out, the issue was discussed and will be again in the future. "We pay for the majority of them", the president said . President Donald Trump speaks during a press conference in Singapore on June 12, 2018 , in this photo released by the AFP.

US President Donald Trump is seated amid a crowd of officials. But the summit host, Trudeau, whose nation was among those singled out by Trump, pushed back and said he would not hesitate to retaliate against his neighbor to the south.

Trans-Atlantic and other trade wars would have "a long-term impact on the global economy", he said at a Berlin meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and leaders of the IMF, World Bank and other worldwide institutions.

On Russia's possible return to the G7, Merkel said she could imagine it in the future but that the conditions had to be right for that. Russian Federation was thrown out of what was then the G8 after it invaded and annexed Crimea - a strategic Black Sea peninsula - from Kyiv in 2014 and later fomented an ongoing war in Ukraine's eastern Donbass region that has killed almost 11,000 people. "After a long day of work and very direct dialogue, we are actively seeking an ambitious agreement", an English translation of Macron's tweet reads.

Speaking in the House of Commons, Theresa May said: "This was a hard summit, with at times some very candid discussions".

"Why should I, as President of the United States, allow countries to continue to make Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our Farmers, Workers & Taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay?" the President continued.

"The other leaders presented their numbers and Trump presented his".
