Trump's Chief Economic Adviser Says Justin Trudeau "Stabbed Us in the Back"

Trump's Chief Economic Adviser Says Justin Trudeau

The president renewed his attack on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who had hosted the G7 meeting in Canada, tweeting "Justin acts hurt when called out!".

After President Trump left, from Air Force One, he rage-tweeted an attack on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and announced the US was revoking its agreement to accept the joint statement of the G-7 members.

US 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.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said at the G7.

"The New York Times notes that in a press conference Saturday afternoon, ".Mr. Trudeau said the seven nations had reached broad agreements on a range of economic and foreign policy goals.

Mexico hit back with fiscal penalties on USA exports like pork, steel, cheese and whiskey.

"He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea", Kudlow said.

Donald Trump has taken a fresh swipe at key allies after a war of words broke out following the USA president's decision not to endorse the conclusions of a G7 summit.

Mr Trump posted a string of tweets attacking the Canadian prime minister's personality just hours after leaving the divisive meeting in Quebec.

Speaking in her first interview since the G7 summit in Canada, the chancellor said the European Union would continue preparing countermeasures to USA metal tariffs.

Trump's stinging critique - while technically accurate - obscures the larger trade relationship between the two countries.

But unity was torn apart when the United States president took exception to Mr Trudeau calling USA policy "insulting".

Although Trump said the trade talk was "not contentious", his comments come amid a tense few days with multiple world leaders over Trump's decision to impose steel and aluminum tariffs on the country's biggest trading partners: Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

Some 75 per cent of Canadian exports go to the U.S., making Canada uniquely vulnerable to a USA trade war.

Krishnamoorthi warned that "by driving both sides into their corners instead of encouraging a more diplomatic dialogue", the Canadian prime minister is sabotaging trade negotiations between the USA and Canada.

"He really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said.

It was a stunning statement, and it echoed the aggression employed by White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow in a separate interview Sunday following this weekend's G7 summit.

He told Fox News Mr. Trump "did the courtesy to Justin Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit".
