"We commit to modernize the WTO to make it more fair as soon as possible". Take down your tariffs & barriers or we will more than match you!
Earlier on Saturday, Trump arrived late for a breakfast G7 discussion on gender equality, with summit host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, kicking off things off without waiting for those he described as "stragglers" to arrive.
"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said.
Trump, who repeated that his tariffs are meant to protect USA industry and workers from unfair worldwide competition, told reporters he had suggested to the other G7 leaders that all trade barriers, including tariffs and subsidies, be eliminated.
Germany's Angela Merkel says nothing has changed when it comes to Russian Federation.
"The European Union is brutal to the United States". "And I don't blame other leaders for that. You know, it's like the gig is up" - Trump lashes Europe over what he sees as their unfair trading practices.
In his final news conference before leaving, Mr Trump said trade was at the top of the agenda and the U.S. has been taken advantage of for decades and it cannot go on. "Trade", Trump wrote in a pair of tweets.
European leaders put a fearless face on the results.
The office of German Chancellor Angela Merkel also said it stood by the communique.
"Naturally we can not force the USA to change their mind", said Tusk, who is a former prime minister of Poland and is now president of the European Council.
"We're the piggy bank that everybody is robbing".
"The fact that we weren't ready to downgrade our positions allowed us to have a better result than we might have hoped for".
Trump warned countries against levying retaliatory tariffs on the US after his administration imposed punitive tariffs on aluminum and steel imports from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union on national security grounds. That's the way it should be.
Trump's change of heart appeared to have been invoked by Trudeau's comments on Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs against Canada and other allies.
Trump's utopian idea was greeted with skepticism, but he appeared to take it seriously, arguing that the United States had been taken for a ride by the rest of the world.
During the summit, Trump was accused of seeking to undermine the "rules-based" global order but the final statement began by stressing "the crucial role of a rules-based worldwide trading system" as well as a commitment to "continue to fight protectionism".
Trump has announced tariffs of up to $150 billion on Chinese goods over US complaints of Beijing's trade practices and its alleged theft of USA technology. "It's going to stop".
"We are not going to live with the deals the way they are", he said.
"On NAFTA we either leave it the way it is as a three-some deal with Canada, the United States and Mexico and change it very substantially - we're talking about very big changes". Trump said, referencing the Canadian tariff levied on US and foreign milk imports.
"We'll win that war 1,000 times out of a 1,000", he said.
But a French official insisted France and its fellow G7 European nations were maintaining their support communique and said anyone departing from the commitments made at the summit would be showing their "incoherence and inconsistency".
