US President Donald Trump fired off a volley of tweets yesterday venting anger on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, the European Union (EU) and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the wake of a divisive Group of Seven (G-7) meeting over the weekend.
He said Mr Trudeau was "very dishonest and weak" and "acts hurt when called out".
Trudeau had said after Trump's exit that Canada would retaliate against US tariffs.
Kudlow sought to tie Trump's reaction to the upcoming summit with Kim Jong Un, saying the North Korean leader "must not see American weakness". He also attacked Trudeau's character, calling the Liberal Party leader meek, weak and dishonest.
It came in response to what he claimed were "false statements" by Canadian premier Justin Trudeau.
She left no doubt that European Union nations will impose counter-measures on USA goods in response, but cautioned against tit-for-tat retaliation which might lead to a trade war.
While foreign policy issues such as North Korea do not usually have much bearing on the polls, Mr Trump's outburst against Nato allies, the European Union and Canada appeared aimed at striking a chord with voters who support his America First agenda.
Hours after Trump withdrew his support for the joint statement and attacked Trudeau, White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro drove the message home on Sunday morning news shows in an extraordinary assault on a close US ally and neighbor.
"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada", Trump said.
Mr Trump also said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive auto industry, throwing the G7's efforts to show a united front into disarray.
Trudeau stuck our president in the back.
Hours after Mr Trump withdrew his support for the joint statement and attacked Mr Trudeau, Mr Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro drove the message home on Sunday morning news shows in an extraordinary assault on a close United States ally and neighbour. Meanwhile on CNN Larry Kudlow said Trudeau "stabbed us in the back". "We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", it said, reflecting the typical language of decades of G7 statements. U.S. officioals too, took on Mr Trudeau. Trump said in a second tweet.
G7 allies seemed as perplexed as Canada at the sudden diplomatic row, and Germany and France accused Trump of destroying trust and acting inconsistently.
"The countries are all going to retaliate - what you will get is a period of time where each of the countries is going to have to evaluate the impact of the new tariffs".
While trade is expected to dominate, Trudeau also wants to focus on gender equality and climate change.
