Battered by Trump, G7 leaders choose to be 'polite,' productive

The View From Canada: G7 Summit, Tariffs And Trade

The View From Canada: G7 Summit, Tariffs And Trade

Trudeau says five of the G7 countries agreed to a plastics charter to further protect the environment and oceans.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump", Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro said on Fox News this weekend, following the G7 summit in Quebec.

"I've never seen language like this, least of all from subordinates of the president directed at the prime minister of their greatest friend and ally", Mulroney said.

Hashtag #Eyebrowgate trended and soon, Trudeau's Eyebrows even had their own Twitter account.

Trump's supporters also criticized Trudeau.

The US President gave a press conference at the seat of the summit in the Canadian town of La Malbaie shortly before he left the meeting to head for Singapore, where on June 12 he will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Efe reported.

When asked if the statements came from the president, Navarro said that the words were his own, but "they reflected the sentiment that was on Air Force One".

Asked what Trudeau did that amounted to betrayal, Kudlow criticized the Canadian leader for holding a press conference in which he called USA tariffs "insulting".

Mr. Trump called Trudeau "dishonest & weak" after Trudeau said at a news conference that Canada would retaliate for new US tariffs.

Earlier that day, Trump also tweeted: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers". Trump wrote on Twitter. "Well, the in-factual, the non-factual part of this was they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said. In tweets, Trump insulted Trudeau as "dishonest" and "weak". I've worked with him in good faith getting through a good communique on Friday and Saturday.

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 communiqué, one USA official appeared to brush aside the notion, saying other countries have got used to how the president operates internationally. "We will stand by them and anyone who would depart from them... shows their incoherence and inconsistency". He described all seven leaders coming together to sign the joint declaration despite having "some strong, firm conversations on trade, and specifically on American tariffs".

Top White House officials ratcheted up their attack on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Sunday, accusing him of a "betrayal" and saying there was a "special place in hell" for leaders who cross President Donald Trump, a day after Trudeau's remarks at a news conference led Trump to withdraw support of a Group of 7 agreement with allies.

Trump has infuriated the European Union, Canada and Mexico by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.

Trump said he hasn't talked with Putin for some time and justified his proposal because the reincorporation would be good for the world, for Russian Federation, for the United States and for the G7 countries.

The leaders of Canada and the United States are locked in an ugly, escalating public dispute over trade barriers, tariffs and how they think they world should resolve its problems.
