G7 row: Emmanuel Macron attacks Donald Trump's 'fits of anger'

Trump's comments on Twitter that the U.S. is the one being treated unfairly sparked outrage in Europe, the United Kingdom, and Canada, which came to a head after the USA president used the social media platform - his preferred method of venting often unfiltered and highly dubious claims against his domestic and worldwide counterparts - that he was backing out of the joint communique and subsequently torpedoed what appeared to be a fragile consensus on the ongoing trade dispute between Washington and its main partners in the seven-decade-old Euro-Atlantic alliance.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called President Donald Trump's choice to break ranks with USA allies-by backing out of a joint statement on social media and then deride foreign leaders-"a little depressing".
Merkel captioned the picture: "Day two of the G-7 summit in Canada: spontaneous meeting between two working sessions".
She said the European Union would "act" against the USA trade measures, which European leaders regard as going against the rules of the World Trade Organization.
"The other leaders presented their numbers and Trump presented his".

Echoing Trump's sentiments, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro also spoke harshly about Trudeau on Fox News over the weekend. Trump and Trudeau have been engaged in a war of words over trade since the weekend's Group of Seven economic summit.
Trump said that his ultimate goal was the elimination of all trade duties. "Sometimes it seems that the American president thinks that only one side wins and everyone else loses", Merkel said, apparently speaking about Trump's verbal attacks against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
"There is no reason for us not to talk to each other, but this is going to be hard", Merkel said, adding that her dialogue with Trump will continue during the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels in July. The EU has already said it will announce countermeasures against Trump's metals tariffs on July 1.
Doctored images showed the United States president as a petulant child - including memes with Trump overturning a bowl of noodles on his head or clutching a teddy bear as Merkel sternly looks on. The picture that has gone viral on social media shows Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron staring down US President Donald Trump. "We will act too", she said.
The US leader has blasted Europeans, Germany above all, for failing to spend enough on their own defence, claiming they are taking advantage of US military power. This year's summit had a particular focus on trade. We have a very big trade deficit with Canada.
During a rare solo news conference earlier Saturday, Trump said he pressed for the G7 countries to eliminate all tariffs, trade barriers and subsidies in their trading practices.
