Dem Congressman Sides With Trump, Slams Trudeau on Trade

U.S. President Donald Trump shakes hands with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during a meeting at the G-7 summit Friday Dem Congressman Sides With Trump, Slams Trudeau on Trade

"(Trudeau) really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council who had accompanied Trump to Canada, said on CNN's "State of the Union.

The move enraged Trump, who branded his Canadian counterpart "dishonest and weak" in a furious tweet, announcing the USA would pull out of an agreed communique.

Trudeau said he had told Trump "it would be with regret but it would be with absolute clarity and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1, applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applied to us".

Kudlow said Trump won't let a Canadian prime minister push him around on the eve of his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Public opinion has been fairly supportive of Trudeau all along, including his mild approach to Trump, said Nik Nanos, a leading Canadian pollster.

Freeland reiterated that Canada would retaliate to United States tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way, adding the country would always be willing to talk. Asked who won the tug-of-war with Mr Trump, Mr Macron said: "There is no victor, there are only losers when you take that strategy". In response to US duties, Canada has already issued its own tariff threats, which Trudeau said would go into effect on July 1.

Ford also tweeted in standing "shoulder to shoulder with the prime minister and people of Canada" he said "my number one goal is to protect jobs in Ontario, starting with my unwavering support for our steel and aluminium workers".

He said that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation nations should "pay much more for the Military", tweeting that "Germany pays 1% (slowly) of GDP towards North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, while we pay 4% of a MUCH larger GDP".

U.S. President Donald Trump shakes hands with Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a bilateral meeting at the G7 Summit in in Charlevoix, Quebec, Canada, June 8, 2018.

Trade adviser Peter Navarro told Fox News Sunday that "there is a special place in hell for any leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy" with Mr Trump.

At one point Kudlow, 70, referred to Canada's leader as "Pierre" Trudeau, confusing the prime minister with his late father, who served in the same capacity for more than 15 years between 1968 and 1984 and died in 2000.

Mr Trump said the move was based on Mr Trudeau's "false statements. and the fact that Canada is charging massive tariffs to our United States farmers, workers and companies".

Continuing the back-and-forth exchange of words, Trump lashed out at the Canadian leader on Twitter, calling him "very dishonest and weak", and his statements "false".

"Well, he holds a press conference and he says the U.S.is insulting".

Trump's top economic advisor Larry Kudlow went after Trudeau Sunday.

A French official insisted France and its fellow G7 European nations were maintaining their support for the communique and said anyone departing from the commitments made at the summit would be showing their "incoherence and inconsistency". Instead, the gathering apparently served to further inflame Mr Trump's belief that the USA is being treated unfairly by countries with which prior presidents had long ago negotiated trade agreements for the flow of goods and services.

Mr Trump said the move would protect domestic producers that were vital to USA security.
