Dem sen: ‘Difficult to understand’ Trump’s treatment of allies

Also in response, Larry Kudlow, director of the White House's National Economic Council, said on Sunday in an interview with CNN that Trudeau betrayed Trump with "polarizing" statements on US trade policy.

Prior to Trump's tweet, Trudeau had said all G-7 members signed the joint statement following the summit in Canada.

Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska, R-Neb., said in a statement: "If the president is actually serious about leading the expansion of a G-7 no-tariff, free-trade agreement, that's tremendous, tremendous news - for the US and for the free nations of the world". Canadians, he said, "will not be pushed around".

Mr Trudeau said: "We had some strong, firm conversations on trade and specifically on American tariffs".

In a meeting at the White House during the French president's visit to Washington in April, Macron suggested the United States and France should work together to resolve shared trade problems with Beijing, prompting Trump to make his remark, a person in the room told CNN.

"We have to keep a cool head now and draw the right conclusions", Maas said.

"He did a great disservice to the whole G7".

Merkel said she expected Italy's new coalition government to vote for the extension of European sanctions against Russian Federation.

"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", Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro said on "Fox News Sunday".

Canada's Justin Trudeau and other leaders had given closing press conferences and announced a US-backed joint statement.

Nearly as an afterthought, Trump - now in Singapore for a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un - tweeted: "Great to be in Singapore, excitement in the air!"

In his tweets, Trump attacked Trudeau by calling him "dishonest and weak" and denouncing statements as "false".

"Kim must not see American weakness", Kudlow said. "He can't do that".

British Prime Minister Theresa May also went out of her way to thank Trudeau "for his leadership and skillful chairing" of what she called "a hard summit with at times some very candid discussions".

"And President Trump, throughout his presidency, he started with criticizing our closest allies when he became president", he added.

"Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal". Or we'll stop trading with them.

Mr Trudeau said he had reiterated to Mr Trump, who left the G7 meeting before it ended, that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the US-Canada border.

"Justin acts hurt when called out!" the U.S.

"He followed up by asking why the U.S. should "allow countries to continue to make "massive trade surpluses", asserting that it is "not fair to the people of America" and that the USA is suffering under a "$800 billion trade deficit".

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". He says that we are the problem with tariffs.
