Grisham's explanation is more in the line with the Trump that the Group of Seven nations know, and who often drives them to distraction. "I have second thoughts about everything".
Later that afternoon, Trump shot back, saying he would raise to 15 percent the tariffs on $300 billion of Chinese imports due to take effect September 1 and December 15 and increase the 25 percent tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese goods to 30 percent on October 1.
White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Sunday he did not expect China to retaliate further.
Donald Trump acknowledged having second thoughts on escalating the trade war with China - only for his top spokeswoman to later say he meant he regretted not raising tariffs even more. Trump replied. Reporters asked again whether he had second thoughts. "We're talking", Trump said.
Trump said that at times they "go at each other a little bit" but had a "special relationship".
Trump promised he will raise existing duties on $250 billion U.S. in Chinese good to 30 per cent on October 1, and will hit an additional $300 billion in Chinese products on September 1.
Trump responded with more tariffs of his own and issued an extraordinary threat to declare a national emergency in an attempt to force US businesses to cut ties with China.
Trump then entered the first official summit meeting, initially set to be a discussion of foreign policy and security issues.
He was asked whether he had "any second thoughts on escalating the trade war" with China, after he announced higher tariffs late Friday. "We're in favor of trade peace".
"They have figured out how to deal with this president", said Jon Alterman, a senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "I think what we're going to see out of this summit is, on the one hand, an effort by countries and the leaders to align with the president, but also an understanding that we'll have to do more without the USA president". But White House aides claimed he engineered a late change to the summit schedule, adding economic issues to the agenda.
White House officials said Trump planned to press leaders to do more to spur economic growth, as well as to open European, Japanese and Canadian markets to American manufacturers and producers. Trump has imposed or threatened to impose tariffs on all three markets in his pursuit of free, fair and reciprocal trade.
In fact, European members of the G-7, which includes Britain, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Japan and the U.S., have repeatedly expressed concern over the trade war's threat to the wider global economy.
Some chanted "One, two, three degrees, it's a crime against humanity!" as they marched through the narrow streets of Bayonne, near the French resort of Biarritz where police had sealed off the town centre for the G7 summit. That was the backdrop for an impromptu two-hour lunch with French PresidentEmmanuel Macron outside the opulent Hotel du Palais.
"This may be the last moment to restore our political community", Tusk told a news conference in the seaside resort of Biarritz, France, where the leaders of the seven leading world economies have gathered for several days of meetings and talks.
France said G7 leaders had agreed that Macron should hold talks and pass on messages to Iran.
But Trump disputed that he had signed off on any message.
Trump also appeared at odds with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe over the seriousness of North Korea's series of short-range missile launches. Tensions between the USA and Iran have risen in recent years over Iran's nuclear program, and its role in Syria and other conflicts in the Middle East.
Trump said he was not considering taking that action at this time, however.
Macron held talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Friday to ease the crisis, proposing measures to provide Iran with an economic compensation mechanism.

Motegi declined to comment on details but said the negotiations were based on the two nations' joint statement in September. The United States and China are also engaged in an expensive trade dispute that has disrupted financial markets worldwide.

"On n'a pas d'argent", répète Villas-Boas
On peut imaginer que la communication très approximative du président de l'OM n'est pas étrangère à l'incompréhension du public. Il assure qu'aucune arrivée n'interviendra sans départ. "Je l'ai déjà dit: on n'a pas d'argent, a-t-il grincé".
