Trump Criticizes Justin Trudeau, Says US Won’t Endorse G7 Statement

Mr Trump's looming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un heightened tension, and White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Mr Trudeau of betraying Mr Trump with "polarising" statements on trade policy that risked making the United States leader look weak on the eve of the historic North Korea summit.

In a second tweet, Trump said that Trudeau acted "meek and mild" during the G7 summit and that the U.S. tariffs were in response to Canada's 270% tariff on dairy products.

At his closing news conference, Trudeau had repeated his prior statements that he believed the US's national-security rationale for imposing steel and aluminum tariffs was "insulting", and that Canada would impose retaliatory tariffs.

Macron said that the US, which had pulled out of the Paris Accord and the Iran nuclear deal, and which has now imposed steep steel and aluminum tariffs on Europe, Canada, and Mexico, needs to be persuaded to remain in the "community of nations".

The G7 also includes Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan.

"He ought to come out and apologize in the name of the western allies", Kudlow said of Trudeau.

"POTUS is not gonna let a Canadian prime minister push him around, " Kudlow said.

President Trump arrives at Paya Lebar Air Base for a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Sunday, June 10, in Singapore.

Mr Trump made the comments after the communique had already been officially released in response to a press conference held by Justin Trudeau to mark the close of the summit.

He added: "Canadians are polite, we're reasonable but we also will not be pushed around". But, Trump's defenders today say that he is simply standing up for America.

Also in response, Larry Kudlow, director of the White House's National Economic Council, said on Sunday in an interview with CNN that Trudeau betrayed Trump with "polarizing" statements on US trade policy.

The move enraged Trump, who branded his Canadian counterpart "dishonest and weak" in a furious tweet, announcing the USA would pull out of an agreed communique.

"State of the Union" host Jake Tapper asked Kudlow what right Trump and other USA officials had to be offended by Trudeau's comments, given the dispute.

Canada's foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, said her country "does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks". Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., also called Trudeau's comments a stab in the back to Trump.

Trump lashed out at Trudeau after the G7 issued a joint communique on Saturday in which the embattled alliance managed to overcome some differences and find areas of common ground. "But I don't see any fundamental problem in the Canadian-American trade relationship".

Speaking on Fox, Navarro said, "It's going to be three strikes you're out on ZTE".

"And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", he continued.

Two senior White House officials on Sunday blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over his earlier statements during the just concluded Group of Seven (G7) summit.
