White House Economic Adviser: Canada's Trudeau 'Stabbed Us In The Back'

White House Economic Adviser: Canada's Trudeau 'Stabbed Us In The Back'

Trudeau had announced that the G7 members - Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the US - had agreed upon a joint communiqué, or formal statement, after a hard week on trade issues.

President Donald Trump shakes hands with Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a bilateral meeting at the G-7 summit in in Charlevoix, Quebec, Canada, June 8, 2018.

President Trump lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Twitter Sunday night over their disagreement on trade tariffs. Yet after leaving the summit for his Tuesday meeting with the leader of North Korea, Trump tweeted that he would instruct USA officials not to endorse the G7 statement, after objecting to comments from summit host Trudeau.

Responding to Trump, Trudeau's spokesperson Cameron Ahmad said: "We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the G7 summit".

In return, Mr Trump made the French president his guest at his first White House state dinner, after which the USA president said of his visitor: "I like him a lot".

In his tweets following the G-7 summit, Trump also indicated that he may soon target foreign cars produced for the US market.

"I would rather see Russian Federation in the G8 as opposed to the G7", Trump said at a press conference on the sidelines of a G7 summit in Charlevoix, Canada. "Let us be serious and worthy of our people".

Although U.S. senators have warned that a spat risks launching a "trade war", the key factor behind Trump's apparent policy zigzag was a matter of his image ahead of a first ever meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un this week, according to Trump's economic adviser Larry Kudlow.

"Well, he holds a press conference and he says the U.S.is insulting".

The Spaniard has now responded to the accusations, telling Catalan station TV3: "It's a lie and he knows it". I don't know why but I have the impression that he was jealous, he took me for a rival.

A viral photo shared by the German government shows Trump, arms folded, being stared down by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did".

Peter Navarro, a trade adviser for Trump, was even more damning in his comments about Trudeau.

"Donald Trump has dealt a further heavy blow to the Western community of states with his behavior after the G-7 summit", said Johann Wadephul, a deputy caucus leader of Merkel's bloc.

In a separate tweet, Trump said Trudeau had been "meek and mild" during the summit and attacked his criticism of steel and aluminum tariffs on imports from the European Union, Canada, and Mexico recently imposed by the US.

He said the European Union "should pay much more for Military!"

The statement continued on: "We spend two days working out a [joint] statement and commitments".

In response to the initial tweets critical of her country and prime minister, Canada's foreign minister Chrystia Freeland said her nation "does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks".

"We have a very good relationship with President Trump, we work with President Trump, the United Kingdom has a very good relationship with the U.S.", she said.

While Trump won a quick endorsement from Italy, other nations including Germany and the United Kingdom warned that Russian Federation would need to change its behavior for the G8 to be revived.
