Europe will implement counter-measures against us tariffs on steel and aluminium, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Sunday, voicing regret about President Donald Trump's abrupt decision to withdraw support for a Group of Seven communique.

Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market! Trump initially refused to sign the statement, but agreed to sign it prior to his departure.

Merkel did not know Trump planned to do this and only found out he pulled out from the "arduously negotiated" declaration while she was returning from the summit.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel called Trump's action and behavior "sobering and a bit depressing".

Nevertheless, she vowed to continue to work on the often-fractious relationship with Trump's White House.

"The issue of tariffs can not be looked at in isolation, we must also think about issues such as subsidies", she said.

"I don't want us to keep inflating our language", she added, saying the word "depressed" was "already a lot, coming from me", in an ironic reference to her usual unflappable appearance.

Trump had delivered a stark warning to America's trading partners not to counter his decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. In his address President Trump spoke about his recent appearance at the G7 summit, "I had a very good meeting with the G7".

She was referring to an agreement that the G7 leaders came to when they said the group would jointly review their trade ties and assess the scope of existing tariffs in order to avoid further trade barriers. As the summit closed, Trudeau held a televised news conference to discuss the communication, where he was asked about Trump's new tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum. We have a very big trade deficit with Canada.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel found the contentious Group of Seven summit with U. S.

"The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before-both in public, and in private conversations with the president", Trudeau's office announced in a statement, according to Reuters. "Sometimes I get the impression that the USA president believes that only one side wins and the other loses".

After Trump left the summit, tensions between him and the rest of the G7 continued to escalate.

Echoing Merkel's sentiments, French President Emmanuel Macron's office said that "international cooperation can not depend on fits of anger and a few words", according to a statement published by French public broadcaster RFI.

"We have spent two days to secure a text and commitments".
