Trudeau, Macron support Trump on North Korea but will confront on trade at G7 › Medicine Hat News

President Donald Trump's top economic adviser says Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "really kind of stabbed us in the back" when Trudeau said at the end of the Group of Seven summit that Canada wouldn't be pushed around by the USA and its trade tariffs.

"PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that. he 'will not be pushed around.' Very dishonest & weak", Trump said in his tweet.

Europe will implement counter-measures against US tariffs on steel and aluminum just like Canada, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said, voicing regret about Trump's decision to withdraw support for the communique.

On Friday, he faced our angry allies at the G-7 conference in Quebec, a face-to-face battle in what could become a destructive trade war.

Speaking at his closing news conference, Trudeau says the G7 has agreed to an "ambitious" communique - but he did not immediately release a document or provide details of where the exclusive club of wealthy democracies found common ground.

He really kind of stabbed us in the back.

British Prime Minister Theresa May "is fully supportive" of Trudeau and his leadership, a senior United Kingdom government source said, while European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted: "There is a special place in heaven for @JustinTrudeau". "We are very measured".

"The European Union is brutal to the United States".

She said with the Trump administration's decision to implement new tariffs on aluminum and steel imports to the United States, "multilateralism right now is in a complicated and hard phase".

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday", Navarro said: "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump".

Peter Navarro, a trade adviser to President Donald Trump, escalated the White House's rebuke of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, calling him weak and dishonest on Sunday.

European officials said Trump had tried to water down the language in the draft final summit communique on the World Trade Organization and rules-based trade.

The forward has been expected to confirm his future before the World Cup and said Saturday that was still the case. Some heartwarming footage has emerged of a young Antoine Griezmann meeting his France heroes back in 1998.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland responded to the White House assault by saying ad hominem attacks were not helpful, that Canada would retaliate to United States tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way and that Canada would always be willing to talk.

Trump's latest twitter tirade came after he arrived in Singapore for his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong-un.

Lucey reported from Singapore and Gillies from Quebec City. But even those vested in Canadian trade are not expected to come to Trudeau's defense as long as the USA economy is roaring.

"I think that those are words that I would not have chosen", Short said. Trump wrote on Twitter.

Trump is right to assail China for unfair trade, but doing the same with our closest allies is a mistake.

France is also standing by the G7 communique, a French presidency official said, adding anyone departing from the commitments made at the summit would be showing their "incoherence and inconsistency". "That Canada could be considered a national security threat to the United States is inconceivable". We'd have a deal, we'd have a great deal with NAFTA, by now, if the Canadians would spend more time at the bargaining table and less time lobbying Capitol Hill and our press and state governments here, they are just simply not playing fair. Trump said it was snapped as they waited for changes he'd requested to the communique, which he ended up pulling out of.
