One 'rant,' rough talks sour G7 mood in confrontations with Trump

"PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that. he 'will not be pushed around.' Very dishonest & weak", he added.

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

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron spoke candidly about pushing Trump to reverse his position on the tariffs.

Canada's Justin Trudeau and other leaders had given closing press conferences and announced a US-backed joint statement.

Trudeau used a media conference on Saturday to reject a United States demand for a sunset clause in the North American trade agreement, Nafta, that Trump has at different times pressed to abolish or renegotiate.

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.

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

The president also called Trudeau "indignant" on trade and accused Canada of charging the U.S. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did".

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland had responded to the White House comments by saying that Canada will retaliate to United States tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way and that Canada will always be willing to talk.

Wallace pressed him on the results of Trump's aggressive trade stance: Weren't other countries' newly announced tariffs on American goods the opposite of what the White House wanted?

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

Before leaving for Singapore, Trump had delivered a stark warning to America's trading partners not to counter his decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Kudlow said allies should have been more supportive of Trump given the meeting with Kim, using the words "crazy nuclear tyrant" in reference to the North Korean leader.

"Canada is very clear", Freeland said.

Still, an European Union official said the rest of the group will stick to the communique as agreed by all participants.

"Trump declared that the trading policy of foreign countries with the U.S. is unfair, claiming that there is an "$800 Billion Trade Deficit", a figure that is as yet unsubstantiated by expert research.

"If they retaliate, they're making a mistake", Trump declared before departing the annual Group of Seven summit, which includes Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan.

At the G7 summit, Trump has said he wants to put an end to the United States' status as the world's "piggy bank" and suggested eliminating trade barriers between allies.

Larry Kudlow, director of the U.S. National Economic Council, said on CNN that Trudeau engaged in "betrayal" and "stabbed us in the back".
