However, despite Trump's decision, Merkel insisted that she would continue working with him and at the same time, prepare the European Union to counter the United States tariffs on steel and aluminum just like Canada.

Meanwhile, when asked about Kudlow and Navarro's comments, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said that she was thankful she was "not responsible for explaining the reasoning behind any comments made by the officials of any foreign government".

This week, the annual G-7 summit was held in Charlevoix, Quebec in Canada, and this remarkable photo, taken by Jesco Denzel of the Associated Press, has become a defining example of President Donald Trump's attitude toward the United States' closest allies, the G-7. This year's summit had a particular focus on trade.

The UK prime minister expressed disappointment over U.S. decision to tax steel and aluminum imports from the European Union.

Merkel was not the only one to criticize Trump's move. "We are standing by them, and whoever turns their back on them shows their incoherence and inconsistencies", an aide to Macron said. "I would say that the G-8 is a more meaningful group than the G-7, absolutely", Trump said.

"If they retaliate, they're making a mistake", Trump declared before departing the annual Group of Seven summit, which includes Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan. The official said disagreements remain, particularly with the US on a number of issues, but the goal remains to reach agreement on all the big issues.

The British leader echoed disappointment from other leaders that President Donald Trump first agreed to a communique for "free, fair and mutually beneficial trade" and the reduction of "tariff barriers", but later tweeted he wouldn't endorse the deal.

Germany's Angela Merkel called for a spirit of "compromise" on reforming the euro zone at a meeting on Thursday (19 April) with French President Emmanuel Macron, who pressed for "solidarity" among members of the currency union.
