Trump's volley comes amid rising tensions with Germany, highlighted by Chancellor Angela Merkel's remarks Sunday suggesting doubts about the strength of its alliances.

Her main challenger in September, the Social Democrats' candidate Martin Schulz, doubled down on Merkel's Sunday comments, saying the summits made it clear that Trump was a president "who wants to humiliate others, who presents himself like an authoritarian ruler". She also spoke of Britain's decision to leave the European Union, which means the bloc will lose its second-largest economy and one of its two nuclear powers.

"Very bad for US This will change".

Her comments came after Trump said during the G-7 meeting he needed more time to decide if the USA would continue backing the Paris climate deal, which has frustrated European diplomats. "We are committed to provide a supportive business ecosystem to those who join us in our growth story", Modi said.
