Trump withdraws endorsement of G7 joint statement, slams 'weak' Trudeau

The G7 leaders pose for the traditional family

The G7 leaders pose for the traditional family

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. -Canada ties but not talking about Canada's tariffs on dairy, which he says are "killing" American agriculture.

Before leaving for Singapore, Trump had delivered a stark warning to America's trading partners not to counter his decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Trudeau promised to fight back by slapping his own tariffs on American goods.

"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 in an interview on "Fox News Sunday". Instead of being awestruck by Trump's random bullying of Trudeau, wouldn't North Korea's Supreme Leader be gravely concerned by the temperament of a man he once called a "mentally deranged USA dotard"?

"Kim must not see American weakness", Kudlow said.

After Trump refused to sign a diplomatic communique agreed to with other G-7 nations at a summit last weekend, Schumer said Trump appeared to be tailoring his foreign policy to the wishes of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Lloyd Axworthy, who served as a Liberal foreign-affairs minister from 1996 to 2000, said the Trudeau government's months-long lobbying of governors, congressmen and USA business chambers will make it harder for Trump to put more tariffs on Canada.

Since Trump's election, Trudeau has tried to take a conciliatory approach to the Republican president.

U.S. President Donald Trump's blistering attack on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has driven bilateral relations to their lowest point in decades and left Ottawa with few options for averting a trade war with its much bigger neighbor.

Canadians have fought and died in almost every war alongside US troops.

In a sign of how limited their options are, Canadian officials said they planned to press harder with their USA lobbying campaign, focused on potentially sympathetic lawmakers outside the White House, while relying on support from allied nations and hoping Trump does not carry out all his threats.

A Trudeau spokesman, Cameron Ahmad, said Saturday night that Trudeau "said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public and in private conversations" with Mr. Trump.

Among other insults the president levelled at the PM, Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak", and accused Canada of ripping the USA off in trade. The prime minister had played down divisions between the United States and the six other members of the G-7.

Mrs May paid tribute to Canadian PM Justin Trudeau's leadership at the summit in the face of Mr Trump's criticisms. The U.S. government agency said U.S. had a $12.5 billion trade surplus for goods and services in 2016, exporting $320.1 billion and importing $307.6 billion.

The President ripped Trudeau on twitter over his "false statements" to the press; adding that he instructed his administration "not to endorse" a joint statement from the G7 countries following the contentious summit.

The President insists he has slapped the levies on to hit back at charges imposed by other countries and has accused his allies of trying to milk the Us's economy.

"The US pays close to the entire cost of Nato-protecting many of these same countries that rip us off on trade (they pay only a fraction of the cost-and laugh)", he tweeted. A spokesman pointed to previous statements saying the Trudeau government is strongly committed to supply management, although the Prime Minister's recent comments in USA media that Canada was moving toward "flexibility" on US access to certain agricultural products in Canada, including dairy, rattled the industry. "He's a pathetic little man-child".
