Kudlow, who was in Canada with President Trump for the G-7 meeting, told CNN on Sunday that the US had come to an agreement with the other highly-industrialized nations in the group on a joint communique until Trudeau's "sophomoric play".

The G7 summit came after the Trump administration decided last week to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada and Mexico, which has drawn strong opposition from USA business community and quick retaliation from major us trading partners.

Prior to the meeting, a White House official has told the Washington Post that Trump was contemplating not signing the statement but "in the end what Trump did seemed significantly pettier" says Vox, claiming he made a decision to take his support back because Trudeau pledged to follow through on earlier promises to retaliate against United States tariffs at a press conference after he left.

Mr Trump said the move was based on Mr Trudeau's "false statements. and the fact that Canada is charging massive tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies".

Guy Verhofstaft, the European Union parliament's representative in Brexit negotiations and former prime minister of Belgium, shared a photo of Merkel staring down President Trump during a meeting at the G7 summit.

The captions reads: "Day two of the G7 summit in Canada: spontaneous meeting between two working sessions".

On Saturday, he called Mr Trudeau "very dishonest and weak". -Canada border. He said unleashing retaliatory measures "is not something I relish doing" but that he wouldn't hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests".

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland spoke against the United States over its tariffs on steel and aluminum on Friday during the summit.


"[Mr Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Mr Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council who had accompanied Mr Trump to the summit of wealthy nations on Saturday, said on CNN's State of the Union.
A senior United States administration official said that Trump had been angered by Trudeau's comments.

President Donald Trump took more swipes at Canada and its prime minister over trade issues as he settled in for a summit with North Korea in Singapore, contending that "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".

"That's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", Navarro said. He says that we are the problem with tariffs.

When Wallace pressed if the "strong words" Navarro had for Trudeau came from Trump, Navarro said "those are my words, but they are the sentiment that were on Air Force One". And what did Trudeau do as soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace? "The non-factual part of this is - they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said. Trudeau stuck our president in the back.


Even so, dialogue with the U.S. president must continue and global partnerships aren't over, she said.

"I have instructed our US Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the US Market!"

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