  • G-7 protesters gather as leaders arrive in France

However, there may be no final declaration as leaders try to avoid a repeat of past year in Quebec, where President Donald Trump pulled the US out of the communiqué in a Twitter attack from Air Force One.

In another piece of brinkmanship, he also confirmed right before departing on the Marine One helicopter that he would retaliate against France's iconic wine exports if President Emmanuel Macron didn't retreat on a new tax that will hit U.S. digital giants like Google.

"I will protect French wine with genuine determination", Tusk said.

The European Union and Germany have already backed French President Emmanuel Macron's call to put the Amazon fires on the agenda for the meeting in Biarritz.

Other G7 leaders are already alarmed at the fallout from the escalating US-China trade war.

Ahead of the summit, French winegrowers were on tenterhooks to see whether Trump would follow through with his repeated threats to impose retaliatory tariffs after he vowed to take "substantial reciprocal action".

Trump will tell his partners "to write the rules for this century, in contrast to the unfair trade practices that we see coming out of China", a senior administration official told reporters.

"And if they do that, we'll be taxing their wine or doing something else".

Earlier this week, a United States official confirmed the "highly-discriminatory digital service tax that France has decided upon" would be raised at the summit.

"I'm not happy with Jay Powell".

"He's going to be a bull in a china shop", Robert Guttman, director of the Center for Politics & Foreign Relations at Johns Hopkins University, said of Mr Trump at the summit in France.

White House officials have confirmed the bilateral meeting between the two leaders.

Yet another diplomatic hand grenade went off days before the trip, when Trump reiterated his desire to recreate the G8 format with Russian Federation, expelled in 2014 after Vladimir Putin's invasion of Crimea.

Instead, discussions between Trudeau, Trump, Johnson and other world leaders will focus mainly on economic issues, including their shared commitment to the new North American trade deal - christened by Trump the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA.

Trudeau will also meet with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo in private, one-on-one meetings before the official beginning of the summit Saturday night.
