We’ll honour pledges made at ‘difficult’ G7, says Theresa May

Navarro added that Trudeau's move was "one of the worst political miscalculations of a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history". And, overall, the USA has an $8.4 billion surplus with Canada.

Trump - who has a history of hair-trigger responses to slights - landed in Singapore on Sunday for the Tuesday summit meeting with Kim.

A few hours earlier, Trudeau had told reporters that all seven leaders had come together to sign the joint declaration.

Donald's Trump's chief economic adviser said the U.S. pulled out of a G7 communique because the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, "stabbed us in the back" and accused the leader of one America's most important allies of playing a "sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption". "He learned", Trump said wagging his finger.

Trump went on to say that the U.S. gets "unfairly clobbered" on trade despite "protecting Europe at great financial loss". Can't do it in person. "He's a pathetic little man-child".

Europe will implement counter-measures against USA tariffs on steel and aluminum just like Canada, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said, voicing regret about Trump's decision to withdraw support for the communique. "That's clearly what was the frustration, but no, I think that the Judgement Day that separates us from Heaven and Hell is not dependent on whether you agree with the President".

"That's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", Navarro said.

Asked if these were statements from the President, Navarro said they were his words, but that they reflected "the sentiment that was on Air Force One".

Trump also called Trudeau "very weak and dishonest" following the summit. Big trade barriers against USA farmers, and other businesses, will finally be broken.

McKenna commended Trudeau for refraining from personal attacks on the president and sticking to the substance of the trade disagreement. "That will not stand".

"In general, it was an attack on the president", he claimed.

- Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau may have expected a lot to happen during the G-7 summit last weekend, but being condemned to an afterlife in both hell and heaven probably wasn't on the list.

The motion in parliament, introduced by the opposition New Democrats, rejected "disparaging ad hominem statements by United States officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations".

"Canadians are polite and reasonable, but we will not be pushed around", Trudeau recently said.

"Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique", Trump wrote.

European officials suggested that the upbeat, punchy news conference that Trump delivered before skipping out was aimed at his trade-skeptic supporters back home and did not reflect the results of the summit.

Leaders from Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, the European Union and Japan attended a tense meeting this past Friday and Saturday at the G7 summit.

Larry Kudlow, Trump's top economic adviser, took things further Sunday morning, saying on CNN's "State of the Union" that Trudeau's comments amounted to a "betrayal".
