Trump's tirade sparks calls for calm, promises of support for Trudeau

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow also said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that "we were very close to making a deal with Canada on NAFTA" before Trudeau criticized the USA after a meeting of the Group of Seven nations, drawing a rebuke from Trump.

At his news conference, Trudeau said Canada would take retaliatory measures next month in response to Trump's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

Hours after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Saturday that all G-7 nations had agreed to sign on to the communique, Trump rebuked the Canadian leader via Twitter.

French President Emmanuel Macron said the summit's trade discussions were "sometimes quite heated", and the New York Times reported Trump "delivered a running monologue" at the closed-door meetings, taking leaders to task on how he believed their countries had "mistreated" the U.S.

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro went a step further, suggesting to Fox News Sunday morning that there's a "special place in hell" for the Canadian prime minister.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he said. The G7 meeting in La Malbaie, Que., which was hosted by Trudeau, marked Trump's first visit to Canada as president.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is winning support from his political rivals in his feud with the Trump administration over G7 and trade, including incoming Ontario premier Doug Ford.

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

If you focus on who is saying the right things, you shouldn't get lost in the noise that's going on right now. So I want to give him full credit when his team beats the Cleveland Cavaliers for another league championship.

"Kim must not see American weakness", he said.

Leaving the Group of Seven Summit for Singapore, President Trump tweeted that he has instructed us representatives to not endorse a joint communique issued by the G-7 leaders.

Trump tweeted his reversal after what he called "false statements" by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who he labeled "dishonest and weak". "All Justin Trudeau had to do was take the win". "He should pull back on his statements, and wish President Trump well in the Korean negotiations".

Mr Trudeau said he had reiterated to Mr Trump, who left the G7 meeting before it ended, that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the US-Canada border.

In a news conference June 9 shortly before his departure from Quebec, Trump brings up his problems with trading with his friends - "It's going to change, a hundred per cent".

Freeland said of the USA tariffs, "The national security pretext is absurd and frankly insulting to Canadians, the closest and strongest ally the United States has had".

The outburst suggested that any deal had collapsed and his more or less explicit threat to impose sanctions on imports of cars will outrage his ostensible allies - in particular Germany and Canada who produce many for the large USA market.
