White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said his harsh rhetoric came from

After leaving the summit Saturday, Trump announced that the USA was pulling back its endorsement of the G7 communique in part because of what he called "false statements" at a news conference by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Last month, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced his government would retaliate against Trump's tariffs by imposing import taxes on $12.8 billion worth of US imports in what Canada says its strongest trade action since the World War II.

Mr Trudeau, in Quebec City for bilateral meetings with non-G7 leaders after the summit, did not respond to reporters' questions as he arrived, but his office pointed to Ms Freeland as the minister responsible for Canada-US relations.

Mr. Trump addressed the subject of global trade during an impromptu news conference at the summit on Saturday, saying that he does not want to see other countries take advantage of the U.S. over trade.

During a rare solo news conference earlier Saturday, Trump said he pressed for the G7 countries to eliminate all tariffs, trade barriers and subsidies in their trading practices. Trump fired back, saying the U.S. had been duped for for years by barriers and that any country that imposed its own measures would regret it.


Kim Jong-un "must not see American weakness", Kudlow said, shaking his jowls in a very Nixonian fashion.

Kudlow's and Navarro's comments come on the heels of a tense G7 summit that left relations with US allies even more fractured than before. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did".

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland responded to the White House assault by saying ad hominem attacks were not helpful, that Canada would retaliate to U.S. tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way and that Canada would always be willing to talk.

He tweeted: "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".

In a tense interview today with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union", Trump's economic advisor Larry Kudlow lambasted Trudeau.


Kudlow says the White House has taken issue with Trudeau's comments during the news conference that Canada must stand up for itself and that recently imposed USA tariffs on steel and aluminum are "insulting".

Trump also took aim at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation for relying too heavily on the U.S. for their security.

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

"[Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said. He said that Canada has to stand up for itself. The EU trade surplus with the U.S.is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out.

The tweets Mr Trump posted after the G7 contained direct attacks on the Canadian PM.


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.
