President Trump Is Still Very Angry With Canada's PM Justin Trudeau

"I had a very good meeting with the G7", Trump said, rejecting suggestions the summit was a failure.

U.S. President Donald Trump wants to eradicate this country's dairy industry, the sector's farmers said Monday amidst increased trade tensions between Canada and the United States.

Bruce Heyman, the former U.S. Ambassador to Canada, on Monday slammed Donald Trump's treatment of Justin Trudeau, and Canada in general, demanding the president apologize for his surrogate's claim there's a "special place in hell" for people like the Canadian prime minister.

"I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said.

Calling Trudeau "dishonest" and "weak", Trump cited two reasons to withdraw the United States from a joint statement on "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade", which had been drafted at a summit of the Group of Seven industrialized nations over the weekend. Trudeau also pledged to impose retaliatory tariffs against the US, and added that Canada "will not be pushed around". Trump is due to meet with North Korea's Kim on Tuesday. "We just shook hands!'" Trump said Tuesday.

"On (Trump's) comments, I'm going to stay focused on defending jobs for Canadians and supporting Canadian interests".

"To leave Canada the way that we did and to make the statements about a trusted ally like this is just wrong", Flake told reporters, according to ABC News.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he had said.

Trump advisers also took up the attack in appearances on Sunday's news shows, leveling more withering and unprecedented criticism against Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time.

In the same set of tweets, Trump said: "Justin acts hurt when called out!"

"There are more jobs now posted than there are people looking for work in the United States, and we've cut immigration pretty substantially", he said, noting that the country's birth rate is low.

Trump said he chose to back out of the G7 communique after watching Trudeau's closing summit news conference, at which he warned that Canada would not be pushed around on tariffs - a point the Canadian prime minister had made several times before.

The US President Trump has again singled out Germany regarding North Atlantic Treaty Organisation payment and criticized Europe for running a massive trade surplus with the US.

"It's very unfair, and it's very unfair to our workers, and I'm gonna straighten it out".
