LA MALBAIE, Quebec (AP) — The Latest on President Donald Trump at the Group of Seven summit (all times local):

8:20 a.m.

President Donald Trump has opened his second day at an international summit at a breakfast discussion on gender equality.

Trump arrived late for Saturday's meeting during the Group of Seven summit of leading industrialized nations being held in Quebec.

The summit host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, kicked things off without waiting for those he described as "stragglers" to arrive.

Trudeau has made the issue of gender equality a priority for the gathering. He says gender equality must "cut through" everything the G-7 does.

Trump was seated between Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, and Christine Whitecross, a Canadian lieutenant general.

1 a.m.

President Donald Trump headed into the Group of Seven summit in Canada at odds with allies over U.S. trade penalties. Then he tried to ease tension with friendly banter and vague claims of progress in trade talks.

But details are scant so far, and clear differences are remaining.

At issue are new U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Trump contends that other countries "have been taking advantage of the United States on trade."
