The Charlevoix G-7 summit was marked by sharp disagreements over Trump's decision to impose higher import taxes on aluminum and steel imports.
"I'm not saying that none of the things he wants will happen", Merkel said in an interview with ARD public television.
"We need Russian Federation for disarmament talks" and for discussions about both Ukraine and Syria, Merkel said.
Trump tweeted: "Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!"
Looking ahead to the next major diplomatic encounter with Trump - a meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance leaders in July - "it won't be easy", Merkel said.
The photo shared by Merkel's office on Saturday was simply captioned "Day two of the G7 summit in Canada: spontaneous meeting between two working sessions". It's long and hard, it takes a lot of time and determination. "Sometimes I get the impression that the USA president believes that only one side wins and the other loses".
Tesla cutting 9% of jobs - Elon Musk
Tesla has never been profitable in its 15-year existence. "I'm deeply grateful for your many contributions to our mission". Tesla's announcement comes a month after Musk announced a restructuring of Tesla's organizational chart.
When asked if she was concerned that Trump could retaliate against EU counter-measures by imposing tariffs on European-made and designed cars, Merkel added, "First of all, we'll try and see if we can prevent this... Preach Chancellor, preach!", "As US we apologise for his childish behavior", "Show him who's the boss Angela", a social media user said. The EU also won't be "taken for a ride" in its trade conflict with the United States, she said.
Merkel reiterated that Europe has to take its destiny in their hands, sometimes together with Japan and Canada, in the face of a US President who has a clear agenda, Xinhua reported.
But it's Merkel's that's undoubtedly the most striking.
"We need a real European border police that can act if necessary even if it displeases one of the (EU) states with external borders".
"Sometimes, you just have to weather a dry spell", Merkel said.
At the same time, she suggested that US-European ties will outlast Trump.
