Merkel: EU will retaliate against Trump tariffs

On the other hand, another social media user said, "It looks as if Madam Merkel is teaching The Donald a lesson!"

"The situation isn't very nice", Merkel said.

She also spoke about Trump's suggestion that Russian Federation be readmitted to the G-7, from which it was booted after its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.

Officials from Justin Trudeau's team also shared an image of the Canadian PM and summit host leader being presented with work by Prime Minister Theresa May, Mr Macron and Mrs Merkel, while an uninterested Mr Trump stares into space.

Merkel described the joint communiqué Trump refused to sign, despite America's co-authorship, as "arduously negotiated".

We will act too, says the German Chancellor.

Trump has already announced tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada and Europe, which will impact major exporter Germany and he intends to hit another key sector for the German economy-auto exports.

Europe will implement counter-measures against USA tariffs on steel and aluminium just like Canada, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Sunday, voicing regret about President Donald Trump's abrupt decision to withdraw support for a G7 communique. He will not be attending the second day, as he is all set to leave for Singapore where is scheduled to meet North Korea's Kim Jong-un on June 12.

Earlier in the day, the United States leader tweeted that he had instructed his representatives not to sign the statement, hours after the summit's host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, announced all countries had supported it.

Trudeau's office cast doubt over the genuineness of Trump's offense at the prime minister's remarks, pointing out that Trudeau's messages simply reiterated his position before the summit, that he will oppose attempts to bully Canada on trade.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", Trudeau said.

Merkel said she expected Italy's new coalition government to vote for the extension of European sanctions against Russian Federation. "We stand by it and whoever leaves it and turns their back on it is showing inconsistency and lack of character".
