- Trump met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the G7 summit over the weekend. He later called Trudeau “very dishonest & weak” and refused to sign a joint statement following negotiations.

Photos taken just 48 hours apart show the contrast in President Donald Trump’s meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the G7 summit over the weekend and his talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday.
The two-day summit in Charlevoix, Quebec, featured a tense standoff between Trump and other G7 leaders. Trump refused to endorse the group’s joint statement, said that Russia should be readmitted, and traded barbs with Trudeau over an intensifying trade conflict.
Trump later accused Trudeau of making “false statements” and tweeted that the Canadian leader was “very dishonest & weak” during negotiations.
One photo in particular shows Trudeau trying to engage with a sullen Trump.
In contrast, Trump was incredibly friendly during his historic meeting with Kim in Singapore on Tuesday, even giving the North Korean leader a thumbs-up.
Trump and Kim shook hands and posed for photos before their nearly 40-minute one-on-one conversation behind closed doors.
Trump and Kim were mostly smiles following the discussions, with Trump saying the talks were “top of the line” and better than anticipated. The two then signed a joint statement.
