And tariffs are going to come way down because people can not continue to do that. "But the relationships are very good", he said.

Pierre Lampron, the president of Dairy Farmers of Canada, shot back at Trump's claims about his industry.

"He's got an opportunity the likes of which I think nearly - if you look into history - very few people have ever had", Mr. Trump said.

Before boarding the plane to Quebec for the G-7 summit, President Trump answered a lot of questions from the press.

Trump's imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs, as well as broader disagreements on trade, climate change and the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement, are setting the stage for some tense G7 talks once Trump arrives at the summit in the Quebec town of La Malbaie.

The summit came during an ongoing trade dispute with China and served as a precursor to his unprecedented meeting with Kim, in which he has sought to extend a hand to the Asian autocrat who has long bedeviled the worldwide order.

Trump announced worldwide tariffs on steel and aluminum imports in March, with an an exemption for some trading partners.

Trump had already roiled G-7 members ahead of the summit and raised fears of a trade war when he placed tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, the European Union and Mexico. Some countries have retaliated with their own levies on USA imports.

Trump said there are "some folks" in the news business who "are with the USA and the US citizens, proud citizens" and some of the "most outstanding people I know". Mexico and Canada have also responded with their own retaliatory tariffs.

"We will not stop trying to convince President Trump that undermining this order makes no sense at all".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed cynicism earlier this week about her prospects for the G7 summit, slyly faulting the Trump administration for its abandoning of old allegiances.

"He is very seriously contemplating kind of a shift in the NAFTA negotiations".

He said: "I wasn't aware of it, I didn't know that Britanny Kaiser had been to the embassy". Nix also called out Channel 4 for editing the footage to portray him in a worse light.

The tone was much different than Trump's earlier in the day.

But he said he was not going to budge in the trade fight.

The US president was very much the odd man out on climate change during the G7 in Italy previous year, later announcing his intention to withdraw from the landmark Paris agreement.

He blamed past world leaders, including past presidents, for that situation, but said the current crew - including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau - now know that the "gig is up".

"G7 Sherpa and Deputy Assistant to the President for International Economic Affairs Everett Eissenstat will represent the United States for the remaining G7 sessions", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. The U.S. government and other nations have imposed strict sanctions on Russian Federation related to its involvement in Crimea, and those penalties remain in effect. Like other countries attending the summit, May has criticized US tariffs, saying on Thursday that the United Kingdom seeks to be "a great champion for free trade around the world". He was also very forceful when he shook the hand of the Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe at the White House in June 2017.
