Emmanuel Macron engaged in a Twitter spat with President Trump over the tariffs just hours before it was due to start - leading some to question whether the blossoming "bromance" between the two was over.

On Saturday morning Trump said he was open to getting rid of the tariffs if the other countries agreed to a more pure form of free trade. Russian Federation used to be included rounding out the group to G8, Trump has been lobbying for the country to be let back in.
