Trade adviser Peter Navarro told "Fox News Sunday" that "there is a special place in hell for any leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy" with Trump.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Sunday that President Trump's refusal to endorse a communique from the Group of Seven (G7) leaders was "sobering and a bit depressing".

The calamitous summit ended in disarray after Trump broadsided his allies by disavowing a joint statement the USA had agreed to.

Trump did not name the document that he was referring to.

U.S. Republican Sen. John McCain, a vocal Trump critic, offered support for the other six world leaders at the Canadian summit.

US President Donald Trump on Monday continued his vitriolic attacks on several close allies in the wake of his early departure from an unusually discordant G7 meeting in Canada, which saw him withdraw US support for a joint communique.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks at the final press conference of the G7 summit. "Canada, thank you for the flawless organisation of G7!", he said further, about the meet hosted by Trudeau in Quebec.

The communique, which had appeared to have papered over the cracks that surfaced so uncharacteristically at the G7, said the leaders of the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan were agreed on the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism. A senior U.S. administration official said that Trump had been angered by Trudeau's comments.

"This year's G7 meeting is already going down as the G6 + 1, with six members on one side and President Trump on the other", Al Jazeera's John Hendren, reporting from Quebec, said.

"The United States loses political influence in the rest of the world, and they also lose position as a centerpiece in efforts to find global joint mechanisms and set the agenda", said Solberg, who had been invited to attend the summit.

"He held a press conference and he said the U.S.is insulting".

When Wallace pressed if the "strong words" Navarro had for Trudeau came from Trump, Navarro said "those are my words, but they are the sentiment that were on Air Force One".

Canadian officials, including Trudeau, have fanned out across the United States as part of a months-long charm offensive to appeal to pro-trade Republicans at every level.

"We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", it said.

In a news conference after the summit, Mr Trudeau had said that while he did not want to "punish American workers", his job was to protect Canadians and as such he would press ahead with tariffs on some U.S. imports.

The German foreign minister, Heiko Maas, on Sunday called on European nations to stick together following Trump's announcement.

Even so, dialogue with the USA president must continue and global partnerships aren't over, she said.

The EU then announced retaliatory tariffs on USA goods ranging from Harley-Davidson motorcycles to bourbon.

"I think she is outlining Canada's actual position and is outlining actual steps that have been taken and are being taken", he told Xinhua in an interview.
