Browbeaten? On Twitter, Justin Trudeau's 'Fake Eyebrows' Trumps US Tirade

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", said Trump, who flew from Canada to Singapore for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Among other insults the president levelled at the PM, Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak", and accused Canada of ripping the US off in trade.

Trump's comments came after Trudeau's closing news conference at the G7 summit in Quebec, where the prime minister said he had pushed back against the Trump administration's tariffs on steel and aluminum.

In the end, Trump never visited the sessions on climate or the ocean, but held its own news conference, where he slammed "unfair trade" and promised to cut ties with countries that didn't adhere to a "zero tariffs", policy, then leaving for a summit in Singapore.

Theresa May drew roars of laughter from MPs after she was asked to chose between Canadian leader Justin Trudeau and US President Donald Trump. "President Trump made President Trump look unstable, erratic and thin-skinned".

Ottawa has announced dollar-for-dollar retaliation on the US imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada. And I see the television and he's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States and I say push him around?

Former U.S. ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman also wants Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro to apologize for saying "there's a special place in hell" for Trudeau, whom he accused of practising "bad-faith diplomacy" at the weekend G7 summit in Quebec.

The British government has been eager to sign a trade deal with the USA after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union next year.

"There had to be an agreement someplace that the president clearly felt other members had clearly violated, or at least the prime minister had violated", Rounds said. He complained that he had been blindsided by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's criticism of his tariff threats at a summit-ending news conference.

A Trudeau spokesman, Cameron Ahmad, said Saturday night that Trudeau "said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public and in private conversations" with Trump.

Trump went on to say that the U.S. gets "unfairly clobbered" on trade despite "protecting Europe at great financial loss".

Trump's behavior at the G-7 summit was criticized by both Republican and Democratic lawmakers as being antagonistic of USA allies. "We just shook hands!'" Trump said Tuesday.

Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME said that while her state has experienced "frictions" with Canada over lobsters and other goods, the USA should not be alienating one of its biggest trading partners.

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

The relationship between the US and its allies was already off-balance after Mr. Trump just a week before the summit imposed 25% tariffs on steel and 10% tariffs on aluminum from the European Union and Canada.

She said it had been "a hard summit with, at times, some very candid discussions" and that the United Kingdom would honour its commitments in the joint communique. We are sticking to them and whoever reneges on them is showing incoherence and inconsistency.
