Trump advisers blast Trudeau with 'unprecedented' language: political scientist

The decision to back out of the communique was "in large part" because of the upcoming North Korea summit, Kudlow said. "I know it didn't look friendly; it was reported as nasty both ways, I was angry with her - actually, we were just talking, the whole group, unrelated to everything, very friendly, waiting for the document to come back".

According to US Census Bureau data, Canada was the top export destination for 32 states in 2016, by far the most of any country. We agreed. We compromised on the communique.

Larry Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council, lashed out at Trudeau as "amateurish" and "sophomoric" for a news conference he gave after Trump left the G7 summit on Saturday.

"He's not going to tolerate that, nor should he", Graham said on Fox News.

President Donald Trump's fight with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau not only threatens to unravel the US's relationship with one of its oldest worldwide partners - it could also significantly damage the U.S. economy. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One".

Mr. Trump called Trudeau "dishonest & weak" after Trudeau said at a news conference that Canada would retaliate for new USA tariffs.

Trump - who has a history of hair-trigger responses to slights - landed in Singapore on Sunday for the Tuesday summit meeting with Kim. The US president accused Trudeau of giving false statements at his news conference.

Trump responded to the Canadian prime minster's news conference by tweeting that because of Trudeau's statement, he would not sign the communique that the G-7 nations had drafted at the summit. "Canada, thank you for the ideal organisation of G7!", he said further, about the meet hosted by Trudeau in Quebec.

Freeland said of the USA tariffs, "The national security pretext is absurd and frankly insulting to Canadians, the closest and strongest ally the United States has had".

Trump, as well as some of his aides, went on the attack this past weekend against the Prime Minister, throwing heavy insults at him after he refused to submit to the President's contentious tariff demands - mainly on steel and aluminum.

The former Conservative prime minister said that while he believes the dispute is serious, that doesn't make it "lethal".

No real headway was made at the G7 summit in this matter, and uncertainty and frustration still abounds in related negotiations between the US and Canada.

"That's what matters", he wrote.

Trump had earlier called Trudeau's statement as "dishonest and weak".

"International cooperation can not depend on being angry and on sound bites".

On Monday, European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said the EU "stands fully behind" the statement and "will continue to stand up for an global, rules-based, multilateral system".

Mr Trump also responded by announcing that he was backing out of a joint communiqué on trade between the U.S. and its main allies.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Mr Trump's announcement on Twitter had destroyed trust and Europe's answer must be to stick even closer together.

"Trump mentions Canada again in a couple more tweets about trade on June 4 - "... "It's for them that we made strong commitments during this #G7Charlevoix".

"(Canada and the U.S.) have a great relationship and we've had it for 150 years and I think we'll have ups and downs like this", he said.
