Mr. Macron, feuding with Mr. Trump over USA steel and aluminum tariffs on the European Union, tweeted that he and the other six leaders were prepared to turn their backs on Mr. Trump at the summit.

Other G-7 leaders may also choose to be less confrontational with Trump. As expected he did not budge.

"The principle of a dialogue was agreed this afternoon", the French official said.

USA trading partners have been furious over Trump's decision last week to impose import tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico as part of his "America First" agenda.

"The rules-based worldwide order is being challenged, not by the usual suspects but by its main architect and guarantor: the United States", said European Council President Donald Tusk.

President Donald Trump on Friday threatened to "terminate" the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) if he is not able to reach a trade deal at the G7 Summit.

It spun a disorienting smoke bomb into a G7 summit that was turning into a gang-up on the U.S. President over steel tariffs.

"It's highly unlikely there will be a final communique", a G7 official said on condition of anonymity.

Britain, Germany and other members of the G-7 were unlikely to go along with Mr. Trump's suggestion, but he won support from Italy.

On Friday, he and Mr. Trump had a one-on-one meeting.

Indeed, Trump's earlier Twitter activity suggested he'd arrive in Quebec with his elbows up.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has predicted the G-7 talks will be heated because of the American stance on trade.

A few hours later, he added, "Take down your tariffs & barriers or we will more than match you!" We have to change it.

"We are actually working on it", Trump clarified.

At one point, Macron waxed on about the apparent negative effect of US hegemony, and suggested nothing short of sheer human mortality and the sweep of history would undo Trump's decision to dump the climate accord that was struck in the French capital nearly three years ago. Earlier, he welcomed President Trump to the summit with a warm handshake.

To Trump's suggestion that Russian Federation be welcomed back to the group, allies had mixed responses. "Ask this great lady".

Mr Trump's "America First" message to allies has hardened since he brought hardline national security adviser John Bolton on to his team.

The G7 Summit gets underway in Charlevoix, Quebec today as world leaders sit down for two days of talks on issues like economic growth, gender equality, climate change and plastic pollution.

G7 chiefs have largely praised Mr Trump for his efforts to stabilise the Korean peninsula, but they are unhappy he pulled out of an worldwide agreement to limit Iran's nuclear ambitions. Canada has countered with a plan to impose tariffs of its own on USA metals and other consumer goods.

Scheer says the solution to the problem lies in a renegotiation of the Safe Third Country Agreement between Canada and the United States.

The spat has financial markets anxious about tit-for-tit escalation.

That move unleashed fury in the Group of Seven industrialised nations and prompted quick retaliation from Canada and Mexico and a promise from the European Union to do so as well, unnerving investors who fear a trade war that could derail the global economy.

President Donald Trump fired off what appeared to be some passive-aggressive tweets to world leaders on Thursday, one day before he is set to meet G7 leaders for a summit in Canada.

While he's taken a tougher stance on traditional USA allies, Trump - who remains under investigation as part of an inquiry into potential collusion between his presidential campaign and the Kremlin - has charted a warmer course with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
