Trump's Twitter rant against Trudeau garners global reactions

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.

Trade adviser Peter Navarro let fly with incendiary comments against the prime minister on Fox News Sunday, where he also described Trudeau as "weak" and "dishonest" a day after the G7 summit wrapped up in Quebec.

Ahead of the meeting, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave a joint press conference with French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron.

Less than 24 hours before his meeting with Kim, Trump found time to lambast what he sees as unfair trade practices among the other six industrialized democracies at the summit. But after this particular dog attack, the man, in the personification of Justin Trudeau, a nice looking fellow from Canada who seems like he's trying his best, bit ever so gently back.

"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", he said.

Ms. May ducked Mr. Corbyn's question and when later asked by Conservative MP Crispin Blunt: "Trudeau or Trump?", she smiled and replied: "I'm not sure what activity he's asking me to undertake with either of them".

"The United States loses political influence in the rest of the world, and they also lose position as a centerpiece in efforts to find global joint mechanisms and set the agenda", said Solberg, who had been invited to attend the summit. Trump has imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imported to the United States from the EU, Canada and Mexico. In an echo of Cold War meetings on neutral ground, Austria is encouraging the USA to hold a summit in Vienna, a White House official said last week.

"[Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said.

Malta refused , and when Italy instructed the ship to stay at sea, Malta accused Italy of violating global norms. It added that the Aquarius "is still waiting for definitive instructions regarding the port of safety".

Trump's decision to withdraw his support for the communiqué has drawn sharp criticism from Germany on Sunday.

His comments came after a new interview on Sunday that German Chancellor Angela Merkel gave, in which she said the European Union would follow through on its plan to implement retaliatory measures in response to Trump's recently announced steel and aluminum tariffs.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he said.

Trump on Sunday went on to criticize the European Union for having a $151 billion trade surplus with the US, when in fact it is $101 billion, according to the Associated Press.

"Eyebrow gate" emerged just as US President Donald Trump criticised Mr Trudeau for being "meek and mild".

"The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before-both in public, and in private conversations with the president", Trudeau's office announced in a statement, according to Reuters. "We need to stand with our democratic allies".

The president also repeated claims that Canada overtaxes American dairy products under its supply management system and complained about Canadian automobiles entering the USA market.

Canada uses fact-based arguments to drive home a point, says Chrystia Freeland.
