Trump SLAMS Canada’s Trudeau Over G7 Comments — ARCTIC BLAST

Shortly after the summit ended on Saturday, Mr Trump used Twitter to announce that he was ordering officials not to endorse the G7 communique agreed hours earlier by the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan.

But before the group could sign off on a joint statement of agreement on trade talks, Trump's advisers reportedly insisted that the US would not agree to two key points in the statement related to the environment.

US President Donald Trump called Mr Trudeau "very dishonest and weak" after leaving the Group of Seven heads of government meeting in Canada on Sunday, shattering any hope its northern neighbour could avoid US tariffs on steel and aluminium, or renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.

But unity was torn apart when the USA president took exception to Mr Trudeau calling U.S. policy "insulting".

Jeremy Corbyn said Donald Trump was to blame for the summit's "failure".

The United States and Canada are facing a diplomatic and trade crisis as top White House advisers hurled insults at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday morning, accusing him of "stabbing the U.S. in the back".

Trump had told Trudeau any retaliation would be a mistake and the prime minister agreed that it was "not something we want to do". As he headed to a G7 summit in Canada , Mr Trump said: "Russia should be in the meeting".

"As Canadians, we are polite, we're reasonable, but also we will not be pushed around,"Trudeau said".

Tom Tugendhat a Conservative MP for Tonbridge and Malling said: "What is slightly surprising when you see this is that there is this idea that there is a security risk with Canada".

Last week, Canada hit back at Trump administration by announcing retaliatory tariffs on up to 16.6 billion Canadian dollars (12.8 billion USA dollars) worth of US steel and aluminum as well as a diverse list of other products.

"He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea, nor should he", Kudlow said of Trump.

However, that was quickly crushed when Trump denounced the Communique, saying that was not his experience before taking personal swings at Trudeau for his comments to the press afterwards. "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did at that stunt press conference".

"He followed up by asking why the U.S. should "allow countries to continue to make "massive trade surpluses", asserting that it is "not fair to the people of America" and that the United States is suffering under a "$800 billion trade deficit".

Trump continued tweeting Sunday evening about Trudeau, accusing Canada of making $100 billion in trade with the U.S. And what did Trudeau do as soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace?

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

On Sunday, Mrs Merkel labelled Mr Trump's use of Twitter to withdraw from the G7 communique on trade "sobering and a bit depressing".

President Donald Trump told French President Emmanuel Macron that the European Union is worse than China on trade during a conversation that portended the tense end to this year's G7 summit.

She acknowledged the European Union would have to respond to the tariffs with its own penalties on United States imports but she hoped that it would not lead to wider "tit-for-tat" reprisals.

"It will certainly be an exciting day and I know that Kim Jong-un will work very hard to do something that has rarely been done before. create peace and great prosperity for his land". Trudeau stuck our president in the back.
