US President Donald Trump left after holding a press conference ahead of his early departure from the G7 Summit on June 9, 2018, in La Malbaie, Canada.

Even a boilerplate communiqué, which reiterated the rich nations' commitment to free and fair trade, was undermined at the last minute, when American president Donald Trump repudiated the agreement.

"We need Canada's help and support".

While there was "common ground" in some areas, she said she was "disappointed" by the U.S. stance on trade.

His tweet, shortly after leaving Charlevoix in Quebec, came in response to what he claimed were "false statements" by the summit host, Canadian premier Justin Trudeau.

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade", he added in response to the threat of the retaliatory tariffs against the US. At a news conference after his meeting with Kim, the president said the Canadian leader must not have realized that Trump had televisions on Air Force One, allowing him to monitor Trudeau's news conference at the end of the G-7 summit.

In addition to rejecting the insults aimed at Mr. Trudeau, the measure passed Monday said that lawmakers "strongly oppose the illegitimate tariffs imposed by the USA government against Canadian steel and aluminum workers" and "stand in solidarity with the Government of Canada in its decision to impose retaliatory tariffs". The latter is about the start this week when Canadian foreign affairs minister Chrystia Freeland will travel to Washington targeting on trade talks in an attempt to alter the deteriorating situation and prevent a possible trade war.
