US President Donald Trump on Saturday said he had instructed his representatives not to endorse a joint communique put out by the Group of Seven leaders after what he called Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's "false statements" at a news conference.

At a news conference to close the summit of world leaders in Canada, Mr Trudeau said the people of his country would see the United States president's line on trade as "an insult" after a long history of cooperation between the countries.

President Donald Trump arrived late for a gender equality meeting at an global summit, prompting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to kick it off without waiting for "stragglers" to arrive.

"Maybe, but nobody is forever", he told a news conference flanked by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

At his news conference, Mr.Trump again called for Russian Federation to reinstated to the G7, a suggestion rejected by all the leaders, expect Italy's new populist Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.

The president went into the meeting under intense pressure from foreign leaders after he slapped high tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, citing US national security needs.

Although Canada and Mexico say the idea is unworkable, Trump told reporters earlier on Saturday that the new deal would contain such a provision.

Trump also railed against French President Emmanuel Macron, after Macron likened him to a rogue leader.

But Trump had already said he would not hesitate to shut countries out of the U.S. market if they retaliate to his tariffs.

"What we did this weekend was come together, roll up our sleeves and figure out a consensus language that we could all agree to", Trudeau said at a press conference, recognizing that there were major differences with Trump.

Just hours ago, President Donald Trump was tweeting about the "great meetings and relationships with the six Country Leaders".

"We're either going to have NAFTA in a better negotiated form or we're going to have two deals", the USA president said.

"The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversation with the President."

Trudeau said Canada wasn't backing down.

Trump will now begin his almost 20-hour journey to Singapore where he is expected to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on June 12, a tête-à-tête created to encourage the rogue state to end its nuclear program. "Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't".

Mr Trump left the summit early for Singapore, where he will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next week. Russian Federation joined the G-7 in the 1990s, making it the Group of Eight, but was expelled after its annexation of Crimea in 2014. "And we charge nothing", Trump said.

Throughout the escalation in rhetoric, Trudeau slammed Trump's tariffs in several media appearances, calling the decision "totally unacceptable" and "insulting".
