Macron said that recent trade actions taken by Trump are counterproductive to the economy of the United States.
In remarks to reporters before the leaving for the summit, Trump suggested Russian Federation should be included in the meeting of major industrialized countries. "I think the president's made that very clear". "In the interest of all".
In the run-up to the G7 summit, Trump continued to rile up his fellow world leaders with accusations of unfair trade practices, provoking angry responses from both Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron, who even suggested that the G7 could fare as the G6, without the USA if need be.

At issue are US tariffs against Canada and Trudeau's effort to retaliate against its neighbour - as well as Trudeau's comment to reporters that all seven leaders had come together to sign a joint declaration after the G-7 meeting.

The other six nations are pushing for the G-7 to affirm "collective trade rules" in the communique, the French official said.
"It's hard, it's depressing this time, but that's not the end" of the Group of Seven, she added.
