With negatives included, no.
You can add a negative with a positive and get a lesser number than you would when subtracting, only if you subtract the negative from the positive, making it become addition.
1 + (1) = 0, while 1  (1) = 2. Some more examples are 3 and 8, 4 and 1.
Hope this helps! :)

No, inverse integers, are a simple example of the counter argument, and the greater the magnitude of those integers the greater the difference while the sum remains zero. For example:
100 and 100
Their difference is 200 and their sum is zero
