G7 row: Emmanuel Macron attacks Donald Trump's 'fits of anger'

Merkel's recalcitrance has put her on a clear collision course with Seehofer, whose CSU, theoretically a sister party of Merkel's CDU in the large state of Bavaria, has grown increasingly rebellious. Trump then declared on Twitter that he no longer endorsed the statement.

"We won't allow ourselves be ripped off again and again".

European Union nations' failure to speak and act with one voice overseas is a "danger", Merkel warned, as is the fact "that we have no collective approach to the question of managing migration", vital if freedom of movement within Europe's borders is to be upheld.

Albania's Prime Minister Edi Rama said in a press conference in Vienna at the end of May that his country counted 2,311 arrivals that month, up from 162 in January.

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.

Mr Seehofer, who received a phone call from his Italian counterpart Matteo Salvini, said the new government in Rome is interested in building a partnership focused on security, counterterrorism and migration.

Asked whether she supported the new "axis" on migration, Merkel said only that she backed "a shared European answer to the questions of illegal migration but also forms of legal migration".

The Charlevoix G-7 summit was marked by sharp disagreements over Trump's decision to impose higher import taxes on aluminum and steel imports.

"Canada does have a very big advantage over us".

In case ya missed it, the leaders of Germany, Canada, Japan, United States, France, Italy, and the United Kingdom have come together to talk global issues.

Although U.S. senators have warned that a spat risks launching a "trade war", the key factor behind Trump's apparent policy zigzag was a matter of his image ahead of a first ever meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un this week, according to Trump's economic adviser Larry Kudlow.

The group managed a common statement in which they agreed to disagree on some issues, only to have Trump disavow the document in a tweet after leaving the meeting.

The president also commented on his relationship with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, saying he was surprised by Mr. Trudeau's post-summit comments.

Emmanuel Macron has warned Donald Trump about "fits of anger" after the United States president refused to endorse a joint communique of G7 leaders.

The French president's office said in a statement: "International co-operation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks". "We stand by it and whoever leaves it and turns their back on it is showing inconsistency and lack of character".
