The president also withdrew USA support for a G-7 communique.

Trump is in Singapore where he is meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. Trump advisers also took up the attack in appearances on Sunday's news shows, leveling more withering and unprecedented criticism against Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time.

"On (Trump's) comments, I'm going to stay focused on defending jobs for Canadians and supporting Canadian interests".

Smith further said Trump's latest attitude towards Trudeau isn't a new thing and he has "been kicking allies in the teeth his whole presidency". He said Mr Trudeau was "very dishonest and weak" and "acts hurt when called out".

Trump said he chose to back out of the G7 communique after watching Trudeau's closing summit news conference, at which he warned that Canada would not be pushed around on tariffs - a point the Canadian prime minister had made several times before.

"I see the television and he's giving a news conference about how he "will not be pushed around" by the United States".

"To leave Canada the way that we did and to make the statements about a trusted ally like this is just wrong", Flake told reporters, according to ABC News.

Donald Trump meets Kim Jong Un
Some critics questioned the pomp surrounding the Singapore summit, saying it unduly elevated North Korea's rogue regime. The talks - unimaginable just a few months ago - will focus on North Korea's controversial nuclear programme.

"It's kind of like ... if you were sitting with a friend and then out of the blue, you just punched them in the face", he said. "And it won't even be tough".

Without any resolution, Trudeau has promised to impose retaliatory tariffs on metals and a range of other U.S. products by Canada Day.

Growing tensions between the United States and Canada after a series of attacks from President Donald Trump and his aides have left Republicans on Capitol Hill as stupefied as much of the rest of the world.

And it concludes with a direct shot at Trump, calling on the House to "reject disparaging and ad hominem statements by US officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute".

Heyman said Trump's tweets and protectionist about-face could and force Canada to look for trade partners beyond the USA, noting Canada's trade frameworks with Europe and Asia.

"In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message", Navarro said.

"That was my mistake, those were my words".

"There had to be an agreement someplace that the president clearly felt other members had clearly violated, or at least the prime minister had violated", Rounds said.

"The picture with Angela Merkel, who I get along with very well, where I'm sitting there like this" - Trump said, crossing his arms - "that picture, I'm waiting for the document because I wanted to see the final document".
