White House blasts Trudeau over G7 statements

US President Donald Trump accuses India of charging 100 per cent tariff on some imports

Mr. Trump wrote (below).

President Donald Trump's shortened stint at the G7 summit threw the worldwide trading order into chaos and most likely put the U.S. on the path to a trade war.

The remarks apparently upset Trump, who had left the conference early to travel to Singapore for a highly anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

The source said Friday's conversation was going so well that "Trump waved away the importance of a sunset clause, and I can tell you it took his chief negotiator by surprise".

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said after the summit ended in controversy.

The accusation of backstabbing does not comport with Trudeau's overall message, which was mild and echoed some of his previous statements.

The G7 meeting was expected to be tense after Trump's decision to impose steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada, Mexico, and the European Union.

At his closing press conference, Trudeau called United States steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs.

A boxing enthusiast who dons his gloves to work off the stress of the job in his rare free time, the Canadian prime minister will have to carefully measure his punches against the USA leader, who publicly accused him of weakness and dishonesty after the meeting of the G7 nations in Quebec at the weekend.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro drove the message home in an extraordinary assault on a close U.S. ally and neighbour.

"Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks ... and we refrain particularly from ad hominem attacks when it comes from a close ally", Ms Freeland told reporters in Quebec City on Sunday.

When the deal was not made official on Friday, doubts were cast over the player's fitness as he had suffered a serious injury to his right knee previously.

President Trump's senior trade advisor, Peter Navarro, had even worse criticism of Trudeau.

Maas said: "It's actually not a real surprise, we have seen this with the climate agreement or the Iran deal". Trump is due to meet with North Korea's Kim on Tuesday.

Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipila said Sunday that the rift between G7 members at the summit reflects the unpredictability in worldwide political arena, and he hoped the aftermath of the summit would be cleared up quickly.

But Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday on ABC's "This Week", "I'm not so sure John's right about where America is on trade".

There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door.

The public sniping at a sitting leader of state by White House aides shocked some veteran diplomats. "Most inept and shameless Administration since Harding".

He also said that because of Trudeau's comments, he instructed USA trade representatives to not sign the communique the G-7 leaders had agreed upon expressing the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade".

Trump wasn't alone in attacking Canada: Two of the president's highest-ranking economic advisers also joined in. "Who picked the fight?" Trudeau responds with a laugh: "So I'd say NAFTA is in good shape".

"I have made it clear to [President Trump] that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said.

The US has said that the best way to solve trade disputes was by lowering tariff and non-tariff barriers by countries and allowing the free market to operate. Trade. They fully understand where I am coming from.
