Trump says Canadian prime minister 'acts hurt when called out'

They didn't tell you that, did they?

Mr Trudeau's office responded by saying he had "said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the president" and vowed to abide by the G7 final communique.

And Trudeau has certainly been among the leaders in that regard in recent days.

President Trump left the meeting half-way, warning the G7 nations that if they don't remove trade barriers with the US, they will face consequences.

"It was a betrayal", Kudlow said on CNN's "State of the Union".

The G7, the annual summit of democracies with developed economies, took place last Friday and Saturday in the Quebec resort town of Charlevoix in Canada.

President Trump's chief economic adviser accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of stabbing the US and fellow G-7 negotiators in the back with "amateurish" verbal attacks during a domestic press conference.

Mumbai: Coming down heavily on countries over import tariffs during the G7 summit in Canada, US president Donald Trump also drew India into the fracas and claimed that the United States is like a piggy bank everybody is "robbing". The EU trade surplus with the U.S.is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out. According to Trudeau, he told the president that Canadians may be polite and reasonable but they will not be pushed around and that his nation doesn't "relish" putting tariffs on US goods and services but is willing to do so. "He did a great disservice to the whole (G-7)", White House Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow told CNN.

Kudlow, in a separate TV appearance, said Trudeau was "polarizing" and "really kind of stabbed us in the back".

However, despite Trump's heated rhetoric, the U.S. ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, has expressed confidence that the trade conflict can be settled, but said it would take some time.

Trudeau added that he had not agreed to a new North American Free Trade Agreement with a sunset clause. "I personally negotiated with Prime Minister Trudeau", Mr. Kudlow said. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One".

"He did him a favor", Navarro said.

Tusk was referencing a comment made by Trump aide Peter Navarro, who shocked even the US President's Republican colleagues when he called Trudeau a backstabber - over the issue of trade tariffs - and verbally consigned him to "hell" after a G7 meet in Canada over the weekend.

The G7 summit, which brought together world leaders from Germany, Japan, Canada, the US, Italy, France and the United Kingdom, was held in Canada over the weekend and it wasn't plain sailing for Trump and the other leaders. He said US representatives will examine the tariffs on automobiles coming into the country and bemoaned the Canadian tariffs that affect American companies and farmers.

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", said Trump, ahead of his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Does he wear the makeup in the family?
