Trump's concerns are said to be based on the fact that other leaders who are attending the summit disagree with him on key issues and he "does not want to be lectured by them". President Trump tweeted directly at the leaders he was about to sit down with.
Mr Macron was speaking alongside Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau, who is hosting the summit, and the pair signalled they would warn Mr Trump of the potential damage tariffs could cause the US.
Trump also repeatedly insists that the U.S. runs a large trade deficit with Canada, importing more goods from that country than it sells to its northern neighbor.

In talks in Beijing over the weekend, China offered to buy close to $70 billion in USA agriculture, energy and manufacturing products over a year as part of a package meant to ward off US tariffs, according to a person briefed on the talks with the White House. The point isn't that each of those deals were flawless, but to Trump they were disastrous primarily because they involved the United States joining with other countries in the hopes that everyone could emerge better off.
"I think we'll have a joint statement", he said.

"Why isn't the European Union and Canada informing the public that for years they have used massive Trade Tariffs and non-monetary Trade Barriers against the USA", he later added. The EU trade surplus with the United States is $151bn, and Canada keeps a farmers and others out. "Look forward to seeing them tomorrow".
When Trudeau complained to Trump about the new tariffs he slapped on Canadian goods, saying he was especially upset that the pretext Trump used was that Canada formed a "national security threat" to the US, Trump replied, "didn't you guys burn down the White House?".
Mr Trump has periodically called for closer ties with Russian Federation, although his administration's policy has included strong sanctions against Moscow.
Late Thursday, the White House announced that Trump would be leaving the G-7 late Saturday morning to head to Singapore ahead of his summit with Kim, though the G-7 meeting was scheduled to last until later that day.
Officials from the European Union also attend the meetings.

Larry Kudlow, Trump's top economic adviser, called the spat a "family quarrel" Thursday. Let them meet; let them discuss. Either we're the victor or the loser, and if it's not obvious that we're the victor then we must be the loser, the chump, the sap, the sucker.

USA allies, including Canada, are furious with the president's decision to impose steep steel and aluminum tariffs on their exports. Otherwise they may decide to have a Canada First moment and retaliate against Trump's tariffs in a warlike manner.
With its presidential election 26 days away, Mexico's government imposed a 20 percent tariff on us pork, apples and potatoes and 20 to 25 percent tariffs on cheese and bourbon. Kudlow, in line with the longstanding expert consensus in the G7 industrialised democracies, had long opposed tariffs before joining Trump's team, but now says he agrees that the trade status quo hurts America. But it's nonetheless one that critics have taken issue with, making it relevant here.
