President Bush flashes a "thumbs-up" after declaring the end of major combat in Iraq as he speaks aboard the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln off the California coast, in this May 1, 2003 file photo. Six months after he spoke on an aircraft carrier deck under a banner proclaiming "Mission Accomplished," President Bush disavowed any connection with the war message. Later, the White House changed its story and said there was a link.

European headlines and stories are blasting Trump after what is near unanimously considered a disaster of a summit

“We spent two days to obtain a text and commitments. We will stand by them and anyone who would depart from them, once their back was turned, shows their incoherence and inconsistency,” said the statement, quoted by Le Monde, which did not mention Trump by name but was clearly referring to his actions.

“International cooperation cannot depend on fits of anger or little words. Let us be serious and worthy of our people,” the statement said.

Foreign leaders stop playing nice with Trump on trade

Most leaders have tried to charm the unpredictable president into softening his policies. Until now.

 German Chancellor Angela Merkel added her voice to the chorus, saying she found Donald Trump’s actions “sobering and a bit depressing,” while calling for more civility in international exchanges.

“The situation isn’t very nice,” Merkel told German public television in a lengthy interview. “I don’t think that ratcheting up the rhetoric is going to improve things.”

OPINION

Trump just ruined the G7. Now what?

By calling for Russia’s return and rescinding his approval for the final statement, the US president showed his true colors

Europe is flaming after Trump’s disastrous show in Canada. It is simply unimaginable what the reaction would have been here at home had President Obama made any such confrontational statements at a foreign gathering. Or any foreign government made such a heinous remark about him. Our press is largely overlooking the G7 for the shiny object of the Kim Trump “summit”

According to TV talking head Larry Kudlow/adviser of something or other, Trump had to trash Trudeau after leaving the G7 so he wouldn’t look weak to Kim Jong Un. Because pushing around your  friend makes you look so strong

Trump has shredded Western alliances — just as Putin ordered
