White House adviser says Canada's Trudeau 'stabbed us in the back'

Trudeau hasn't responded directly to Trump and White House advisers' insults, instead touting on Twitter Sunday morning the accomplishments of the summit and the goals of the G7 communique Trump ditched.

Kudlow said the USA had spent the summit negotiating in "good faith" with Trudeau and the other assembled leaders, and that the US had planned to sign the communique until Trudeau's news conference, which Kudlow called a "sophomoric play".

More troubling, POTUS threatened to yank the endorsement of the summit's communique, essentially undoing the diplomatic gains made by the world leaders.

At a news conference to close the summit of world leaders in Canada, Mr Trudeau said the people of his country would see the USA president's line on trade as "an insult" after a long history of cooperation between the countries.

Donald Trump's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow has accused the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of "stabbing the U.S. in the back" with his comments at the G7 summit.

Kudlow said the president was merely flexing his muscles ahead of the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore on Tuesday.

Navarro also said Trump attending the G7 in Canada was a "courtesy" to Trudeau and that the President had "bigger things on his plate" in Singapore.

Saying Trudeau's statements are "amateurish" and "sophomoric" only "for domestic consumption", Kudlow said it was Trudeau's remarks that had prompted Trump to pull out of the joint communique.

"It's going to stop, or we'll stop trading with them", the president said at a news conference on the second day of the G7 summit in Quebec.

On June 1, the United States imposed a 25 per cent tariff for steel and 10 per cent for aluminium on imports from the European Union (EU), Canada, and Mexico. Canada, and Trudeau, stabbed American in the back, they say.

Trump said he didn't blame the G7 leaders for "unfair" trade deals but rather their predecessors.

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.

Last month, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced his government would retaliate against Trump's tariffs by imposing import taxes on $12.8 billion worth of USA imports in what Canada says its strongest trade action since the World War II.

The move infuriated White House staff on Air Force One, because Trudeau had sent more conciliatory signals while meeting with Trump in person during the summit, according to White House Director of Trade Policy Peter Navarro.

He did him a favour and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique.

While other presidents and prime ministers have had testy relations - president Richard Nixon famously used a profane word, behind closed doors, to refer to Trudeau's father Pierre Trudeau, also in the context of trade talks - neither side has demonstrated this level of animosity since John Diefenbaker feuded with John F. Kennedy in the early 1960s. "That will not stand", he noted. John McCain (R-Ariz.) sent a message Saturday night to US allies that the American people still stood with them.

Climate: An agreement to disagree. "Our tariffs are in response to his of 270 per cent on dairy!"

"Canada will not change its mind when it comes to the illegal and absolutely unjustified application of tariffs on steel and aluminum, not only coming from Canada, but on the steel and aluminum sold by all the G7 allies who are assembled here, to the United States", Freeland said in a news conference at the summit.
