Trump appeared to have taken notice and pushed back: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers", Trump said in a tweet.

President Donald Trump on Friday called for Russian Federation to be invited back to the G7, telling reporters the country should be at this weekend's meeting of major world leaders.

Thursday, Trump took aim at Trudeau and Macron, accusing them of benefiting from one-sided trade arrangements with the United States.

Trump and other world leaders don't agree on a wide range of issues from trade to the environment as well as Iran and the construction of a new United States embassy in Jerusalem.

The US tariffs have been condemned by nations across the world, with Canada last week announcing it will impose tariffs on as much as $C16.6 billion of US steel, aluminium and other products from July 1.

According to CNN, Trudeau asked Trump how he justified imposing tariffs as a national security issue during a May 25 phone call.

Trump's planned meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron at the G-7 is being pushed back into late Friday afternoon.




However, in an interview this week Trudeau acknowledged the challenges to be expected during the summit as President Trump continues his hard-line stance.

The meeting on Friday and Saturday in Charlevoix, Quebec, will be the first chance G7 leaders have had to confront Trump in person since US tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union were imposed last week. The Commerce Department said foreign production of steel and aluminum was driving down prices and hurting USA producers, creating a "national security threat". French President Emmanuel Macron said members of the global organization will stand behind Trump in his efforts to promote the denuclearization of the peninsula.

"Why isn't the European Union and Canada informing the public that for years they have used massive Trade Tariffs and non-monetary Trade Barriers against the US", he later added. French President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday on Twitter, "The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a 6 country agreement if need be".

Mr. Trump showed no sign of backing down on Thursday, first taking to Twitter to accuse both France and Canada of imposing massive tariffs on US goods and then accusing Mr. Trudeau of "being so indignant". Canada vowed to hit the US with almost $17 billion worth of tariffs on various goods from the USA, such as toilet paper and maple syrup, and the European Union announced planned duties as well. The event brings together the world's foremost economic powerhouses, including Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.

"None of us is eternal, so therefore our countries, the commitments we have made, transcend us", he said.

Officials from the European Union also attend the meetings. The summit comes as the U.S.is clashing with Canada and other big trading partners over tariffs. "Headline risk is elevated into the G7 leaders' summit as market participants focus on trade and President Trump", said Shaun Osborne, chief currency strategist at Scotiabank in Toronto.
