Some 75 per cent of Canadian exports go to the United States, making Canada uniquely vulnerable to a USA trade war. Larry Kudlow, the National Economic Council director, said Trudeau "kind of stabbed us in the back" during the closing press conference.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a television interview on Sunday that the summit is a "sobering" and "depressing" experience with an outcome that "wasn't a great thing". The clashes between America and Canada started right after the G7 summit.

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.

At his closing press conference, Trudeau called USA steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs.

"He made an error", Kudlow said on CNN's "State of the Union". He really kind of stabbed us in the back.

Net neutrality rollback: FCC chairman Ajit Pai responds to critics
It will head to the State Assembly, where hearings will begin in June and must be voted on by the end of August. Pai says this system lets the FTC focus on "the bad apples" and allows other players "thrive in a free market".

President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau engaged in a war of words after the G7 summit.

White House officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the characterisations by the official of Trump's remarks.

- White House trade advisor Peter Navarro ups the ante, telling Fox News that there's a "special place in hell" for Trudeau, who he accuses of engaging in "bad-faith diplomacy" with Trump. Trump said that he withdrew the US from the G-7's joint statement because of that slight.

Trump was on board Air Force One when he issued a series of tweets on Saturday, attacking Trudeau who he called "very dishonest" and "weak" and apparently pulling out of the joint statement.

Europe's answer must be to stick even closer together, defend its interests and strengthen alliances with countries such as Japan and Canada, Mr Maas said.

U.S. President Donald Trump issued a volley of tweets on Monday venting anger on some of Washington's closest North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over the United State's trade deficit, following a divisive G7 meeting in Canada.

All the New Details About the First ‘Game of Thrones' Spin-Off
We know that All Men Must Die but it's clear that all the Game of Thrones shows are still living. More likely HBO will want to work the phrase " game of thrones " in there somewhere.

The source said Friday's conversation was going so well that "Trump waved away the importance of a sunset clause, and I can tell you it took his chief negotiator by surprise".

Analysts are looking at a range of options, which sources say could include placing even more retaliatory tariffs on American products.

The joint communique was published online before Trump tweeted his disapproval after comments made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the new trade tariffs.

Despite his conservative rivals snapping at his heels in polls, Trudeau has seen Canadian politicians from across the spectrum close ranks around him after Trump threatened to slap tariffs on the automobile sector, which would mark a dramatic escalation in the trade spat.

Social media quickly divided into two camps: eyebrow "truthers" and eyebrow "sceptics". Does he wear the makeup in the family? He accused him of "sophomoric play" for insulting the United States during his press conference. Anything but what he's doing. I mean, it's not a question of 'I hope it changes.' It's going to change, a hundred percent. He has to wear more makeup than his wife.

Twitter conspiracy theorists have gone into a meltdown over them, with many replacing cries of "Fake News" with 'Fake Brows'.
