White House economic advisor says Justin Trudeau ‘stabbed us in the back’

Kudlow had been negotiating nicely with Trudeau at the summit in Quebec and the USA had agreed to join the joint communique, but Trump pulled out after he felt betrayed by Trudeau's news conference where the prime minister called Trump's tariffs on Canadian aluminum and steel exports "insulting".

Mr. Trudeau, along with other leaders of the G-7, have criticized Mr. Trump's proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum to stop the allies from taking "advantage" of the U.S.

"He was polarizing", Kudlow said during a Sunday morning appearance on CNN's "State of the Union".

Navarro, the Trump trade adviser, said his harsh assessment of what "bad faith" Trudeau did with "that stunt press conference" on Saturday "comes right from Air Force One".

He described Trudeau as "meek" and "dishonest" and rescinded his earlier promise to sign the communique traditionally issued following G7 summits.

European leaders had put a courageous face on the results.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump".

Freeland, asked about support from allies, said: "The position of our European allies, including Japan, is the same as ours".

"Canada has already raised cases at the WTO and at NAFTA, and we will retaliate", she said. Trudeau again denounced Trump's decision to invoke national security concerns to impose tariffs on aluminium and steel as "insulting" to the Canadian war veterans who had fought alongside United States allies.

Canadian officials, including Trudeau, have fanned across America as part of a months-long charm offensive to appeal to pro-trade Republicans at every level.

That move was met with criticism at home, including from Republicans , and announcements of retaliatory tariffs from US allies. President Donald Trump's move to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports and tear up a nuclear deal with Iran.

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".

The eight-page statement also included joint commitments to ensure that Iran will "never seek, develop or acquire a nuclear weapon" as well as demands for Russian Federation to stop undermining Western democracies.

The G7 leaders also discussed the issue of uncontrolled migration and the threat it poses to national security. Now there is a question mark over that. They must open their markets and take down their trade barriers!

"This is of great concern to the G7".

"The United States will not allow other countries to impose massive Tariffs and Trade Barriers on its farmers, workers and companies. It is impossible to predict what Trump will do next", said a senior G7 official on the summit outcome.

Seven world leaders met Friday and Saturday in Charlevoix, Quebec for what is known as the G7 summit.

The U.S. wants North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program, a demand North Korea has rejected without concessions from the U.S. The U.S. has a near-$350 billion goods trade deficit with China and a goods trade deficit with Mexico of slightly more than $71 billion, according to the Trade Representative's office.

Talks to modernise NAFTA, which started last August, have effectively stalled as Canada and Mexico resist United States demands for major changes such as the sunset clause and boosting the North American content of autos made in the three nations.

"We commit to modernize the WTO to make it more fair as soon as possible".
