Looking focused or exasperated depending on the viewer's interpretation, Merkel is flanked by British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron, their faces largely obscured.

President Donald Trump's trade tariffs on Canada are sparking retaliation. Mulroney began working with Trudeau previous year.

"I have had a good relationship with Justin and I think I have a very good relationship with chairman Kim right now", Trump said.

"I have made it very clear to the President that it is not something we relish doing, but it something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said.

Prior to Trump's departure for Singapore, global leaders met in Quebec over the weekend for the G7 conference.

"We hope it doesn't come to that, but if the USA tariffs remain in effect, we will impose our tariffs on July 1", he said.

The tariffs, as well as Trump's noted opposition to multilateralism, his criticism of Canadian trade barriers and suggestion that the union become the G8 with the inclusion of Russian Federation made for a chaotic lead into the G7 summit. But the trolled Prime Minister had his staunch supporters too.

"It would be with regret but it would be with absolute clarity and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1, applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applied to us", said Trudeau.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland says the ad hominem attacks by the White House are not helpful and defended Canada's position on trade and diplomacy.

Among the many topics the president addressed was his recent Twitter campaign against Trudeau, whom he has called "dishonest" and "weak". "And for God's sake, doing it against Canada after the prime minister issued a fairly mild statement about the Canadians just standing their ground, and then to have him attacked on the Sunday-morning talk shows...."

A theory that Justin Trudeau has fake eyebrows took over the Internet on Monday. And we were waiting for the document to come back so we could read it.

Asked whether allies had any reason to worry about Mr Trump's commitment to any deal he reaches with North Korea following his abrupt withdrawal from the G-7 communique, one US official appeared to brush aside the notion, saying other countries have got used to how the US President operates internationally.

Another stumbling block was the part regarding climate change, where the U.S. didn't want to see any reference to the Paris Agreement, from which the Trump administration has withdrawn, The Star reported.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland first announced "dollar-for-dollar tariffs" against the USA on May 31.
