President Donald Trump broadsided his allies and upended a Group of Seven meeting just as it wound up — disavowing a joint statement the U.S. had agreed to, lashing out at Canada’s Justin Trudeau and ratcheting up trade tensions.

Trudeau and other leaders had given closing press conferences and announced a U.S.-backed joint G7 statement. Minutes after that...
