Trump's tweets slam Canada and Trudeau anew from Singapore

The Latest: Merkel finds Trump's action sobering, depressing

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau holds a press conference at the G7 Summit in the Charlevoix town of La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, June 9, 2018.

"Here's the thing", Kudlow said, "he really kind of stabbed us in the back".

Just as the G7 meeting of the world's leading industrialised nations had seemed to weather Mr Trump's threats of a trade war, the president backed out of the group's joint statement that Mr Trudeau said all the leaders had come together to sign.

President Donald Trump accused Prime Minister Trudeau of acting "meek and mild" during meetings at the G7 Summit, only to attack the U.S. at a news conference.

But Kudlow said he doesn't know whether there will be a deal and that Trump had no alternative but to respond the way he did to Trudeau's "very unfortunate" statements.

Hayden added that the display reminded him of Sean Spicer lying about crowd sizes in a press briefing after Trump's inauguration: "He did it for personal survival", Hayden said. So far in 2018, Canada is also the top export destination for U.S. goods, with over $98 billion worth of goods going over the border.

The fight could have serious economic consequences, since Canada is the US's top trade partner and the largest export market for 32 states.

Trudeau had told reporters that Trump's decision to invoke national security to justify U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum imports was "kind of insulting" to Canadian veterans who had stood by their USA allies in conflicts dating back to World War I.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Trudeau of undermining Trump right before his meeting in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

KUDLOW: Kim must not see American weakness. After that, Trudeau's attack on the president - after a joint communiqué had been signed, and after Trump had already left for the summit with North Korea in Singapore - was not only offensive to Trump, but pathetic. Still, numerous Canadian officials, including Trudeau's spokesperson, noted that he said nothing new or anything that hadn't been discussed with Trump in private.

Speaking at his closing news conference, Trudeau says the G7 has agreed to an "ambitious" communique - but he did not immediately release a document or provide details of where the exclusive club of wealthy democracies found common ground.

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

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro blasted Trudeau in an interview Sunday.

What did Kudlow say?

On Friday, Trump called for Russian Federation to be added to the summit to restore it the G8, a statement that Nebraska Republican Sen.

While Trump also presented the idea that the member countries should drop off tariffs and trade barriers, he also reportedly complained to the other leaders about their trade policies and said the United States would continue with tariffs absent concessions.

"Are you disappointed the President is leaving early?" a reporter asked Trudeau.

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg said the United States loses influence in the world after Trump pulled back support of the G7 summit statement, public broadcaster NRK reported Sunday. I mean we have China where this is completely different because tariffs are a national security issue.
