"I said very simply that it is not something we are even remotely interested or looking at this time to have Russian Federation returned to the G7", Trudeau said at the press conference following the two-day summit". "We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the #G7 summit", spokesman Cameron Ahmad said.
Trudeau said he would not cave to Trump's trade demands, even if it meant a full-blown trade war. France will host next year and the United States in 2020. "We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies".
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump raised eyebrows on Friday by suggesting Russian Federation should be allowed to rejoin G-7.
"Maybe the American president doesn't care about being isolated today, but we don't mind being six, if needs be", said the French President.
During the summit, Trump was accused of seeking to undermine the "rules-based" global order but the final statement began by stressing "the crucial role of a rules-based worldwide trading system" as well as a commitment to "continue to fight protectionism".
The White House said he would leave the talks four hours earlier than originally planned, flying to Singapore to prepare for a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday.
According to multiple reports, Trump brought up the idea of totally free trade during a meeting with the other G7 leaders which include the heads of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and representative for the EU.
The French president said he likes to keep his cards close to his vest and not reveal too much to the media.
Shortly before leaving, he also told reporters that the decision to remove Russian Federation from the group of the world's most advanced economies over the annexation of Crimea should be reversed. "It is going to stop or we are going to stop trading with them".
Trump's comments Friday on Russian Federation also could alienate him from his own party.
