Just hours after issuing a series of aggressive messages about global trade and Canadian dairy practices, Donald Trump has arrived in Quebec to attend some of the G7 summit - his first visit to Canada as US president.
"You know, whether you like it or not - and it may not be politically correct - but we have a world to run", Trump said.
Trump himself said Friday, "I think we'll have a joint statement", when asked if the leaders could come to an agreement.
"They should let Russian Federation come back in".
Before leaving Washington this morning, Mr Trump caused fresh controversy by suggesting Russian Federation should be invited back into the G7, to reform the G8, after Vladimir Putin was kicked out in 2014 after his annexation of Crimea.
Before arriving in Canada, British Prime Minister Theresa May called on fellow European Union leaders to take proportionate responses to the USA tariffs and shrugged off a rebuff by Trump for a formal one-on-one meeting at the G-7.

"Russia is focussed on other formats, apart from the G7", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a brief statement reported by the government-controlled Sputnik news agency.
The comments followed a string of tweets from the president railing against Canada, France and other European allies for what the president has described as an imbalanced trade relationship.

And he warned it was now the U.S., and not "usual suspects" such as Russian Federation, which posed the biggest threat to the current, Western-led global order.
Trump was the last G7 leader to arrive Friday and on Saturday, he will probably be the first to leave, in a hurry to move on to his nuclear summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un in Singapore. The G7 leaders were planning to press him to lift those duties in their opening sessions Friday, egged on by Trump's early morning tweets complaining about unfair trade and Canada's supply management.
Mr Trump's imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminium imports has sparked anger, with even United States allies falling subject to them.

"Threats to our collective security have not waned, whether terrorism to the south or Russia's aggression and hybrid threats to the east", Mattis told reporters in Brussels after a meeting of defense ministers from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. "But now we are seeing that this is happening".
In one phone call, the Canadian PM scoffed at the idea that Canada posed a national security threat to the U.S., the administration's pretext for imposing the steep tariffs on imported aluminum and steel.
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".
Gardiner said there would be "no winners" if the European Union and the United States entered a full-scale trade war. Over the past year, the G-7 blamed the USA for failure to reach climate change agreement but did nothing about it.
