Trump lashes out at U.S. allies in Twitter rant

Trump lashes out at U.S. allies in Twitter rant

And EU leaders at the summit also reportedly told Trump they had no choice but to impose their own tariffs against the U.S.

The situation only got messier from there, particularly in the leadup to, during and right after the G7 leaders' summit. Kudlow suggested on "Face the Nation" that Mr. Trump saw Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before that meeting, saying the president won't "allow the people to suddenly take pot shots at him".

"That's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference".

Trudeau called the fact that the U.S. had based the tariffs on a national security reason "kind of insulting". - "Let's be clear: These tariffs are totally unacceptable..."

McCain tweeted that the "bipartisan majorities of Americans" are in favor of free trade and globalization, and "supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values". He also announced over Twitter he'd instructed USA officials to not endorse the statement, which serves as a declaration and recap of what was decided in the meeting.

Trudeau said the communique has "strong commitments about the actions we are going to take". He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.

James Brander, an worldwide trade expert at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, said Freeland's comments were meaningful.

Two senior White House officials on Sunday blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over his earlier statements during the just concluded Group of Seven (G7) summit.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to the media as he leaves the G7 Summit in the Charlevoix town of La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, June 9, 2018. Merkel, whose nation is a G-7 member, also said the European Union would "act" against the US trade measures, which European leaders regard as going against the rules of the World Trade Organization. "Look forward to seeing them tomorrow". Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!'

"It's going to change", he said. And tariffs are going to come way down, because people can not continue to do that.

"We are convinced that a modernisation is perfectly possible, we are convinced that common sense will triumph", she said.

"I don't blame them, I blame our leaders", he said. Trade. They fully understand where I am coming from.

He said he believes other countries are now more committed to a fairer trade relationship.

But Mr. Trudeau also said it was "kind of insulting" the US had imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum under the guise of national security, noting Canadians stood "shoulder to shoulder" with Americans in overseas wars.

White House aide Larry Kudlow tells CNN's "State of the Union" says Trudeau has done a "great disservice" to the G-7 by saying Canada had to stand up for itself and that the USA was responsible for the problem with tariffs.

In a series of tweets on Saturday, Trump slammed Trudeau for acting "very dishonest & weak" at the Quebec meeting and announced that the USA will not sign the G7 traditional joint communique.

In an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union", Kudlow argued that Trudeau's critique amounted to a betrayal of the G7, as well as the U.S. "He really actually, you know what, he did a great disservice to the whole G-7".
