Trump's top economic adviser accuses Trudeau of backstabbing after G7

U.S. President Donald Trump waves as he arrives to board Air Force One to depart for travel to Singapore from the Canadian Forces Base Bagotville, Quebec, Canada.

Likewise, if Trump pushes for recognition, he will get plenty of pushback from within his government - an administration that has not only increased the sanctions regime against Russian Federation, but that recently announced the sale of Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine. "He is essentially double-crossing - not just double crossing President Trump, but the other members of the G7, who were working together and pulling together this communique", Kudlow said.

Trump called Trudeau "dishonest and weak" in a tweet on Saturday.

Mr Trudeau said: "Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable but we also will not be pushed around".

The US president warned that retaliation against metal tariffs - 25% on imports of steel and 10% on aluminium from countries including the United Kingdom and the rest of the European Union - would be a mistake after previously calling the EU approach to business "brutal".

That decision was "kind of insulting" to Canadian veterans who had stood by their USA allies in conflicts dating back to the first world war, Trudeau said.

Trump may eye Ali pardon, ask football players for ideas
He regained the boxing title in 1974 in the classic "Rumble in the Jungle" fight in the former Zaire against George Foreman. Trump had previously met with reality star Kim Kardashian , a champion of Johnson's case, to discuss the pardon.

Kudlow says Trudeau's actions were a "sophomoric play" and says the prime minister stabbed his USA allies in the back, which he argues did a great disservice to the whole G7.

Emmanuel Macron has warned Donald Trump about "fits of anger" after the U.S. president refused to endorse a joint communique of G7 leaders.

In the week leading up to the the G-7 Summit President Trump engaged in the most Trumpian sort of diplomacy: he very publicly attacked out closest allies.

In addition to his decision to double down on tariffs, prompting concerns of a global trade war, Trump suggested Russian Federation should re readmitted to the G7.

"PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he "will not be pushed around".

Trudeau has used the word "insulting" several times in the last couple of weeks to describe Trump's tariffs, as the prime minister has taken issue with the fact they're being applied on the premise that Canada poses a national security threat to the U.S.

US Representatives Told by Trump to Not Endorse G7 'False Statements' Communique
Trump called the summit a "one time shot" for Kim, but expressed optimism at the beginning of talks with the North Korean regime. In a statement issued following Mr Trump's tweets, Mr Trudeau said he remained focus on what was accomplished at the G7 summit.

Speaking on US broadcaster Fox News, US trade adviser Peter Navarro blamed Canada for the disastrous ending to the G7 summit.

Der Spiegel, the German weekly, called Trump's performance in Quebec "a scandal without precedent" and said that German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other traditional United States allies must now be prepared for anything - especially on trade, a topic dear to German hearts.

But there were signs, among otherwise frustrated European leaders, that they see Trump and his "America First" agenda as an aberration and not necessarily as expressive of a new reality that will never change.

Trudeau said he had reiterated to Trump that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the U.S.

Kudlow's remarks followed a Twitter attack on Trudeau by Trump, as well as Trump's decision to withdraw from a joint communique that he had endorsed only hours earlier. Member countries made a decision to expel Russian Federation in 2014 after it annexed Crimea from Ukraine.

A German government spokesman also said that Berlin stands by the jointly agreed G7 communique in which leaders underlined the crucial role of a rules-based worldwide trading system and promised to fight protectionism.
