U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday accused other countries of "robbing" the United States on trade and threatened to stop doing business with them altogether as he pushed his "America First" agenda at a Group of Seven nations summit.
On Saturday, while diplomats wrangled in private, summit host Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gathered the other leaders for a breakfast session on women's equality.
Though the US appears increasingly isolated from its allies, Trump on Saturday insisted that his relationships with other leaders remains "great".
Macron, who signaled closer ties with Trudeau ahead of the summit, rebuked Trump and likened him to a rogue leader.
"Foreign actors seek to undermine our democratic societies and institutions, our electoral processes, our sovereignty and our security", the G7 leaders said in a statement.
"It has been discussed - some people like the idea of bringing Russian Federation back in", Trump told reporters in Quebec, Canada during the annual G7 summit.
In the brief photo opportunity that started their bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the fractious G7 summit, Trump followed Trudeau's diplomatic introduction by joking that Trudeau had backed down on retaliatory tariffs.
The PM also said she had spoken to Mr Trump "briefly" at the summit about his upcoming visit to the UK.
That comment has Trump squarely offside with this fellow G7 leaders, including Canada, who view Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula and its meddling in western elections as a major global security concern.
The U.S. president is lashing out on several fronts.
In a thinly veiled swipe at the United States, the PM said "not all countries play by the rules" and insisted "just because a country has issues with its trading partners, it doesn't mean that you take unilateral against them". For example, they told Trump that millions of European citizens own Apple iPhones. "Not fair to our farmers!"
"And so began a long litany of recriminations, somewhat bitter reports that the United States was treated unfairly, that the trading system was totally unfavorable to the United States, the American economy, American workers, the middle class", the official said.

"The United States has been taken advantage of for decades and decades and we can't do that anymore".
"We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", the leaders were quoted as saying by Reuters in a statement after a meeting that focused heavily on a current trade row between the USA and its allies.
"Its a one-time shot, and I think its going to work out very well", Trump said, adding later that there is also a significant chance of failure.
Canada wants a deal too, but Trudeau reiterated the government view that the U.S.'s proposed five-year sunset clause is a non-starter.
Mr. Trump said he stood up his G7 allies who were angry over US steel and aluminum tariffs imposed against Canada, Europe and Mexico.
The President warned Canada and Europe to back off their threats to hit back with retaliatory trade measures on July 1 if the US does not lift the steel and aluminum levies.
Trudeau has worked hard to find common ground with the unpredictable president, but the personal bond he has tried to forge has been strained.
He has called Trump's imposition of the tariffs "irresponsible" and "insulting" because the two countries have fought as allies in Second World War, Korea and Afghanistan.
The relationship has reportedly frayed to the point where Trump was considering sending Vice President Mike Pence to the G7 summit in his place, according to a Washington Post report.
"We are actually working on it".
