What Really Sparked Trump's Outrage Over Trudeau's Statement?

Trump says it was snapped as they waited for changes he'd requested to the communique he ended up pulling out of.

The United States and Canada swung sharply towards a diplomatic and trade crisis on Sunday as top White House advisers lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a day after U.S. President Trump called him "very dishonest and weak".

"Canadians.stood shoulder to shoulder with American soldiers in far-off lands in conflicts from the First World War onward", he said. "It's kind of insulting". "Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

Presumably, as Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale pointed out on Twitter, Kudlow was upset that Trudeau's comments could hurt Trump's chances of impressing Kim Jong Un ahead of his meeting with the North Korean dictator in Singapore this week.

President Emmanuel Macron reacted with a statement slamming Mr Trump's behaviour at the summit.

Asked what Trudeau did that amounted to betrayal, Kudlow criticized the Canadian leader for holding a press conference in which he called US tariffs "insulting". "This I've never seen before, nor has anyone else", Mulroney said.

Hours after Trump withdrew his support for the joint statement and attacked Trudeau, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro drove the message home on Sunday morning news shows in an extraordinary assault on a close USA ally and neighbor.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Navarro said to Fox NewsSunday host Chris Wallace.

A video posted of Trudeau delivering a press conference appeared to show Trudeau's left eyebrow "falling off" his face.

"When I got on to the plane, I think that Justin probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions", Trump said.

"I have great friendships", he told Stephanopoulos.

Former CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden testifies at a hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Capitol Hill, on August 4, 2015.

Diplomatic sources tell CNN that once the final language was agreed upon, it was seen as an achievement since the discussions with Trump were "very intense" and "difficult".

May warned of the risks of a tit-for-tat escalation of the trade dispute and said Britain continued to support the G7 communique, which mentioned the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism.
