Donald Trump Slams Justin Trudeau, Calls Him "Dishonest & Weak" Over G7 Verdict

Donald Trump Slams Justin Trudeau, Calls Him

As Trump flew from the summit with USA allies to a planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, he lashed out at Trudeau for what he said were his "false statements" at a news conference and said the us would not endorse the G7 communique, a negotiated statement on shared priorities among the group.

Trump and the White House are upset that Trudeau told reporters that Canada would stand firm when it came to new USA tariffs and "not be pushed around". "Kim must not see American weakness".

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 U.S. leader look weak on the eve of the historic North Korea summit.

"It was a betrayal", Kudlow said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Trump and Trudeau exchanged barbs after a highly contentious G-7 meeting resulted in a press conference in which Trudeau promised not to be pushed around.

"We have a tremendous trade imbalance", Trump said during Saturday's press conference.

Responding to Kudlow's remarks on Sunday-which came just as Trump touched down in Singapore after ducking out of the G7 summit early-Huffington Post reporter Matt Fuller wrote: "It's unbelievable that Larry Kudlow thinks he's helping the U.S".

Trudeau at a press conference in Quebec as the G-7 meeting ended said he had highlighted in the session that "Canadians did not take it lightly that the United States has moved forward with significant tariffs on our steel and aluminum industry".

Jackson Odell , who played Ari on ABC's The Goldbergs , has died; the actor was just 20 years old. At least for their part, initially, police sources say there is no sign of foul play.

Continuing the back-and-forth exchange of words, Trump lashed out at the Canadian leader on Twitter, calling him "very dishonest and weak", and his statements "false". In a pair of tweets, Trump slammed Trudeau for being inconsistent and announced that the USA would not sign the joint statement.

G7 member countries say that despite the sharp tensions they had signed the joint statement advocating a "rules-based trading system".

Follow his statement, Trump and several of his advisors went on the attack, citing similar talking points.

In response, Canada, Mexico and the European Union said they were putting in place their own retaliatory measures. "Don't blame Trump. It was Trudeau who started blasting Trump after he left, after the deals had been made".

"Who picked the fight?"

As America distanced itself from its allies while attempting to pick a genuine fight with its placid neighbor to the north, a dumbfounded rest of the world reacted - and a couple of Republicans weighed in, too.

The brouhaha evaporated any goodwill that had been fostered between the US and its allies at the G7.

"Not to sign a statement of solidarity, which stands for everything that we stand for, is a big mistake", Feinstein said. The president could have said that.
