TAORMINA, Italy (Reuters) - European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker denied on Friday that U.S. President Donald Trump had aggressively condemned German trade policies during at meeting in Brussels on Thursday.

German media reports said Trump had denounced Berlin's policies as "very bad" and had signalled that he wanted to limit sales of German cars in the United States.

"He did not say that the Germans were behaving badly," Juncker said in Sicily before the start of a Group of Seven (G7) summit that brings together the leaders of the United States, Germany, France, Britain, Italy, Japan and Canada.

Juncker called the media reports exaggerated, saying it was "not true" that Trump had been aggressive towards Germany in the talks.
