Trump takes more swipes at Canada after arrival in Singapore

U.S. President Donald Trump shakes hands with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during a meeting at the G-7 summit Friday

The United States and Canada are facing a diplomatic and trade crisis as top White House advisers hurled insults at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday morning, accusing him of "stabbing the U.S. in the back".

Trump, en route to Singapore, called Trudeau's news conference "very dishonest & weak" following his tweet ahead of the G7 summit calling Trudeau "indignant".

"Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers", Trump said Thursday on Twitter.

Trump said in another tweet that Trudeau was "meek and mild" during their private meeting, only to hold a news conference calling the US tariffs "insulting".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron spoke candidly about pushing Trump to reverse his position on the tariffs.

After bashing Trudeau and the other attendees, President Trump's top economic advisor actually took to CNN Sunday morning, claiming Prime Minister Trudeau "stabbed" America "in the back".

Another user shared footage from the press conference, writing: "Justin Trudeau's left eyebrow detached after meeting Trump-so what?"

"For Canadians who ... stood shoulder to shoulder with American soldiers in far-off lands and conflicts from the First World War onward.it's kind of insulting", Trudeau said.


Kudlow's and Navarro's comments come on the heels of a tense G7 summit that left relations with USA allies even more fractured than before.

Mr Trump posted a string of tweets attacking the Canadian prime minister's personality just hours after leaving the divisive meeting in Quebec. Canada does indeed impose a 270% tariff on dairy that has kept many USA dairy products from making their way from the U.S.to Canada.

"Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".

In a tense interview today with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union", Trump's economic advisor Larry Kudlow lambasted Trudeau.

She said: "The withdrawal, so to speak, via tweet is of course sobering and a bit depressing". "But he also pledged to retaliate against the United States tariffs on steel and aluminum products in defense of Canadian workers". "We make commitments and keep them", the presidency said, adding that "France and Europe maintain their support for this (G7) statement".

One stunning photograph captured the tensions between the U.S. and other nations at the G7 summit in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada on June 9, 2018.

In response to Mr Trump's decision to withhold United States support for the summit conclusions, a senior United Kingdom government source said: "We stand by the commitments made in the G7 communique".
