Trump says that Russian Federation should be reinstated as a G8 member

The two leaders offered that olive branch to Trump on Thursday ahead of his arrival at the G7 summit in Quebec on Friday, where disagreements on trade will be front and centre.

Trump's comments on agriculture, his imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs, as well as broader disagreements on trade, climate change and the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement, are setting the stage for some tense G7 talks.

US President Donald Trump has grown exhausted of Theresa May's "school mistress" tone, the president's allies say amid fears that the pair will not hold talks in Canada.

This year, the summit will be Friday and Saturday in Quebec, Canada.

The tariffs, as well as broader disagreements on trade, climate change and the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement, are setting the stage for some tense face-to-face meetings here once Trump arrives Friday at the Quebec summit.

"The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a six country agreement if need be", Macron tweeted. "And we don't want there to be one", Macron said.

When Donald Trump sits down with his fellow G7 leaders in Canada, he should in theory be in the company of the United States' closest allies.

European Council President Donald Tusk, who will attend the meeting of EU leaders, said in the New York Times this week "Europe must now do everything in its power to protect the trans-Atlantic bond, in spite of today's mood".

Although Trump said the tariffs are necessary to protect USA industry, Canada and the European Union have denounced them as illegal and are preparing retaliatory measures. Trudeau and Macron expressed strong support for those institutions Thursday. Conte said in a tweet that the move would be "in everyone's interest".

They also renewed their commitment to the fight against climate change and to promote democratic values, free and open trade, and gender equality.

It is been reported that, in a phone call between the two leaders, Mr Trump wrongly accused Canada of "burning down the White House in 1812" as partial justification. Trump said it should be readmitted, an idea that was unlikely to gain any traction at the G7 gathering, which groups Canada, the United States, Japan, Britain, Italy, France and Germany.

The latest series of tweets by Trump follow posts he made last night - including his accusation that his host Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is being "indignant". German Chancellor Angela Merkelsaid they were "illegal", while Trudeau said they were "insulting and totally unacceptable".

Leaders were also expected to use the event to raise contentious issues like USA participation in the Iran nuclear deal, known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and US participation in global climate treaties.

"We think that demonstrating the strength of NAFTA as a solid community as we take on the world is very much in all 3 of our advantages and we'll continue to negotiate that way".

In one phone call, the Canadian PM scoffed at the idea that Canada posed a national security threat to the USA, the administration's pretext for imposing the steep tariffs on imported aluminum and steel.
