"As Canadians we are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

Trudeau said he would not cave to Trump's trade demands, even if it meant a full-blown trade war.

Numerous G7 leaders have been angered by the Trump administration's harsh tariffs on steel and aluminum on national security grounds and the USA leader's shocking claim that Russian Federation - which was kicked out of what was then the G8 in 2014 after its seizure of Crimea - should be permitted to rejoin.

Trump will leave the summit about 4 hours early Saturday to fly to Singapore for his summit meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un...

In the last week, Trump and Trudeau have exchanged tough words over trade after the USA imposed hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, Mexico and Europe.

"It's very unfair to our farmers".

French President Emmanuel Macron said he and Trump had "open and direct" discussions, adding that he thought there was a way to get a "win-win" outcome on trade.

Trump met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Friday evening during the G-7 summit in La Malbaie, Quebec. Afterward, he said that talks had been "extremely productive" on trade and other issues.

Even for a presidency as capricious as Trump's, his action marked a new blurring of lines between his personal feelings towards other leaders, and United States government policy. "Because these six represent values, represent an economic market, and more than anything, represent a real force at the global level today".

He later wrote: "Tensions are growing everywhere".

He said while the USA has kept its tariffs low to promote global free trade, other countries have left protectionist policies in place, disadvantaging the U.S.

Cranberries and rice are mostly imported from key states that voted for Trump in the 2016 election.

The EU said it will impose the "rebalancing" tariffs on about $3.3 billion (2.8 billion euros) worth of USA steel, bourbon, agricultural products including sweet corn, orange juice, cranberries and certain clothing made of cotton.
