Trump Aide Larry Kudlow Calls Justin Trudeau Trade Comments A 'Betrayal'

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May told MPs that the G7 had been

Trudeau, who had said at the news conference that Canada would retaliate for new US tariffs, didn't respond to questions about Trump when the prime minister arrived at a Quebec City hotel Sunday for meetings with other world leaders.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were all jokes and smiles for the media as they met at the Group of Seven leaders summit in Quebec on Friday, but neither budged on the serious trade dispute between them.

You would think a US president who is hours away from sitting down for negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and perhaps bring an end to the Korean War and maybe making some headway on the denuclearization of the Koreas would be completely focused on that, but not Donald Trump.

US President Donald Trump issued a volley of tweets on Monday venting anger on some of Washington's closest North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over the United State's trade deficit, following a divisive G7 meeting in Canada. "I don't understand the obsession with trade relations with Canada", he said on Fox's "Sunday Morning Futures", given that Canada is the biggest single buyer of American goods and services in the world.

The President insisted his allies were trying to take advantage of the United States over trade and financing North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

"In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters", German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said when asked about Mr Trump's U-turn, adding it would take much longer to rebuild lost trust.

He hit out after the G7 summit ended in acrimony and the growing threat of a transatlantic trade war triggered by his decision to impose tariffs on imports of European steel.

Trump was reacting to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who said Saturday that Canada would retaliate for Trump's proposed new tariffs.

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

It's all Trudeau's fault because Trudeau had the temerity to stand up for his own country to the bully Trump and somehow this might throw Trump off his game as he heads to Singapore?

"I think that those are words that I would not have chosen", Short told CNN's John Berman.

While making no direct criticism of Mr Trump, she left no doubt that European Union nations will impose counter-measures on USA goods in response.

So what exactly did Trudeau say?

Navarro called Trudeau's comments "nothing short of an attack on our political system".

There were two crucial points that didn't satisfy the USA delegation, the Canadian media points out. "I think we're in a hard place now, I'd like to see this thing settle down".

Trump blew apart a G7 summit in Canada over the weekend, blasting Trudeau as "very dishonest and weak" and raising the prospect of tariffs against auto imports, a move that would imperil the Canadian economy.

At his closing G7 news conference, Trudeau once again refers to the national-security premise behind the tariffs as "kind of insulting" and then explains Canada's retaliation - "I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do because Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around". "On the contrary, as part of the USA law, we are part of the national defense base of the United States". The G-7 also includes Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan.
