G7 row: Emmanuel Macron attacks Donald Trump's 'fits of anger'

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said Monday that his "worst expectations" of President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump: "Excitement in the air" ahead of Kim meeting Trump doubles down on criticism of EU, Canada Merkel: EU will retaliate against Trump tariffs MORE were met over the weekend at the Group of Seven (G-7) summit after the president urged USA allies to clear away trade barriers that he argues create huge trade deficits for the U.S.

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". Trump did not name the document that he was referring to.

At his closing press conference, Trudeau called U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Navarro stated.

In response, Canada, Mexico and the European Union said they were putting in place their own retaliatory measures. At one point he wrote, "Justin acts hurt when called out!" "We will act too", Merkel said. Trudeau again denounced Trump's decision to invoke national security concerns to impose tariffs on aluminium and steel as "insulting" to the Canadian war veterans who had fought alongside USA allies.

Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and the other leaders clashed with Trump over steel and aluminum tariffs as well as his decision to abandon a deal with Iran to limit its nuclear program. Repeating his criticism of United States trade policies with Canada, he also took aim at Germany in a multi-tweet rant that went beyond 200 words all told.

Trump says Canadian prime minister 'acts hurt when called out'
Kudlow, in a separate TV appearance, said Trudeau was "polarizing" and "really kind of stabbed us in the back". The EU trade surplus with the U.S.is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out.

Trump decides to leave G7 meeting in Quebec early after trade dispute
The president suggested the idea of ending all tariffs on trade barriers between the USA and its G7 allies. Trump contends that other countries "have been taking advantage of the United States on trade".

Speaking on "Fox News Sunday", Navarro doubled down on Kudlow's rhetoric and said Trudeau's post-conference comments were in bad faith.

"That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did", Navarro said. Japan had already been subject to the levies as part of Trump's "America First" policies. He also said the G7 countries had "again" failed to provide any evidence that Russian Federation was behind the poisoning of a former double agent and his daughter in Britain in March.

In view of threatened United States tariffs on vehicle imports, which would particularly affect Germany, Grenell said that he was a "big auto fan" and knew how important the industry was. Although an event entirely comprising of US allies, Trump had angered the majority of the leaders before he had even arrived, imposing trade tariffs on European and Canadian exports.

In response to Trudeau's news conference, Trump shot back on June 9 - once again, he was likely aboard the presidential aircraft - "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 as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!"

"There are still good reasons to continue our fight [aimed at keeping close transatlantic partnership], even though we can not just rely on it anymore", she added. Freeland later told reporters that "we don't think that's a useful or productive way to do business".

"We spend two days working out a [joint] statement and commitments".
