"Very dishonest & weak", the president tweeted.

In response, Trudeau's spokesman said the federal government was focused on what was accomplished at the summit.

Donald Trump's top economic adviser is accusing Justin Trudeau of betraying the US administration hours after the president himself launched insults at the prime minister, calling him "very dishonest and weak".

The President's move to reject the communique followed a statement from Trudeau earlier, in which the prime minister announced, "We have released a joint communique by all seven countries" indicating that the United States had signed on.

"Maybe the American president doesn't care about being isolated today, but we don't mind being six, if needs be", Macron said.

Trump's counterparts in the G7 have been scrambling this week to try to find some semblance of consensus with Washington on trade and the other key issues that have formed the basis of the 42-year-old organization. "And I don't blame other leaders for that. There was no reason that this should have happened".

"You go tariff-free, you go barrier-free, you go subsidy free", he said.

Trump also tweeted that United States tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, including from Canada, were in response to Canada's tariffs on American dairy products.

"I would say that the level of relationship is a 10".

"The president's support for inviting Russian Federation back into the G-7, just after they meddled in the election to support his campaign, will leave millions of Americans with serious questions and suspicions", Schumer said.

He followed up by tweeting: "PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he "will not be pushed around". He will fly to Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, which he described as a "mission of peace".

The Charlevoix G7 summit was marked by sharp disagreements over Mr Trump's decision to impose higher import taxes on aluminium and steel imports.

"The relationship that I've had [with the other leaders] is great, so you can tell that to your fake friends at CNN", the president told one reporter. "Just my touch, my feel". We appreciate the working together with North Korea.

"This is unknown territory in the truest sense".

On Friday, French President Emmanuel Macron appeared to indicate room for negotiation ahead of a delayed meeting with Trump, telling reporters "Sometimes we disagree".
