But the attempts to convey at least a semblance of unity were undermined when Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed he was going ahead with his tariffs against the United States in response to U.S. moves against his country's steel and aluminum industries.
US President Donald Trump has refused to endorse the Group of Seven leaders' summit statement in retaliation to what he has called "false statements" from the Canadian Prime Minister, despite the communique having already been released to the public.
Macron launched the offensive on Thursday at a joint news conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
"Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" the USA president tweeted.
Throughout the escalation in rhetoric, Trudeau slammed Trump's tariffs in several media appearances, calling the decision "totally unacceptable" and "insulting".
In response, the European Union is preparing new tariffs set to hit USA exports ranging from jeans to bourbon whiskey.
President Trump recaps his participation at a "tremendously successful" G7 summit, says trade, tariffs and immigration topped the agenda.
The Prime Minister said the United Kingdom still wanted to discuss a post-Brexit trade deal with the U.S. and said Mr Trump was still looking forward to July's visit to Britain. "I have made it clear to the president that [imposing retaliatory tariffs] is not something we relish doing, but it's something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said.
He added: "Canadians are polite, we're reasonable but we also will not be pushed around".

"Maybe the American president doesn't care about being isolated today, but we don't mind being six, if needs be", said the French President.
Trump was departing the Canadian summit several hours early, heading to Singapore for his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un on what he called a "mission of peace". At one point, the agreement states, "we acknowledge that free, fair and mutually beneficial trade and investment, while creating reciprocal benefits, are key engines for growth and job creation".
"In one way, it's easier and people find it fascinating", Trump said about the celebrity pardons in particular. Trump said, referencing the Canadian tariff levied on USA and foreign milk imports.
Over the course of the summit, the President pushed the narrative that the U.S.is a victim of a trade imbalance, though European leaders rejected these claims.
