'Fair trade now fool trade', Trump vents anger on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, Trudeau

Trump's team kept up the barrage of criticism on USA media Sunday.

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 U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum are "insulting". "He did a great disservice to the whole G-7".

By the time the G7 summit began in Quebec, Mr Trudeau appeared to be in an awkward negotiating position.

U.S. 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".

Trump - who has a history of hair-trigger responses to slights - landed in Singapore on Sunday for the Tuesday summit meeting with Kim.

Asked whether allies had any reason to worry about Trump's commitment to any deal he reaches with North Korea following his abrupt withdrawal from the G7 communique, one USA official dismissed the issue, saying other countries have gotten used to the sometimes abrasive way the president operates internationally. "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference". Trudeau said Canada will enforce retaliatory tariffs because of Trump's actions.

Mr Trudeau has vowed retaliatory action next month over United States tariffs on steel and aluminium.

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

His most recent tweets are part of an ongoing argument Trump has made that Canada and other countries have been taking advantage of the U.S. In fact, contrary to his tweet, the U.S. ran a trade deficit in 2017 of $568.4 billion, according to the Census Bureau and Bureau of Economic Analysis.

While Trump won a quick endorsement from Italy, other nations including Germany and the United Kingdom warned that Russian Federation would need to change its behavior for the G8 to be revived.

"POTUS is not gonna let a Canadian prime minister push him around, " Kudlow said.

"Here's the thing. "He really kind of stabbed us in the back".

"The historic and important agreement we all reached at #G7Charlevoix will help make our economies stronger & people more prosperous, protect our democracies, safeguard our environment and protect women & girls' rights around the world", Trudeau tweeted.

"That's what matters", he wrote.

French President Emmanuel Macron said worldwide co-operation could not be "dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks".

France is also standing by the G7 communique, a French presidency official said.

Mr Trudeau had sought to play down personal clashes with Mr Trump as he wrapped up the summit, calling the meeting "very successful" and saying he was "inspired by the discussion".

Reporters on Air Force One had been told the USA would sign the joint statement.

Ms Freeland told reporters that she had met with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Friday and would speak to him later on Sunday, adding that she believes a deal to renew the North American Free Trade Agreement is still possible. Joint ideas and compromises on trade and joint ideas and compromises to strengthen the bonds between the world's top industrialized nations. "We make commitments and keep to them". Great meetings and relationships with the six Country Leaders especially since they know I can not allow them to apply large Tariffs and strong barriers to... United States of America.

She also addressed Germany's defense spending, which has come under frequent fire from Trump, suggesting that the US president had a point and that her country would start spending more.
