France warns Trump over 'fits of anger' after G7 statement u-turn

The top White House economic adviser accused Canada's prime minister on Sunday of betraying US President Donald Trump with "polarising" statements on US trade policy that risked making the American leader look weak on the eve of a historic summit with North Korea.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow continued the war of words between the Trump administration and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday morning.

Earlier in the day, Trump had said there should be "tariff free" trade between the G-7 nations, though he did not elaborate on how or whether the U.S. would reduce barriers.

When asked if the president shares his views, Navarro said that the sentiment came from "Air Force One". Halting all trade with countries that don't drop tariffs is a "very profitable answer", Trump said.

After Trump left the summit early to fly to Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Trudeau conducted a press conference in which he said Canada would not be pushed around by Trump's tariff threats.

France released a statement on Sunday condemning President Donald Trump for withdrawing from a previously agreed-upon statement by all seven nations in the Group of Seven. "The non-factual part of this is - they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said.

"Kim must not see American weakness", he told CNN.

Trudeau said the communique has "strong commitments about the actions we are going to take".

According to media reports, Canadian officials have been mystified by the attack on Trudeau by both Kudlow and U.S. President Donald Trump, since at a press conference after the summit ended Saturday, the prime minister used the same language as he had all week.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shot back at Trump's comments at a press conference Saturday by saying Canadians "did not take lightly" that the American tariffs were introduced on a basis of national security, and that they would not be "pushed around".

France has warned that "fits of anger" can not not dictate global cooperation after US President Donald Trump abruptly rejected a previously agreed joint statement in the wake of a fractious Group of Seven (G7) summit in Canada.

"This year's G7 meeting is already going down as the G6 + 1, with six members on one side and President Trump on the other", Al Jazeera's John Hendren, reporting from Quebec, said. Trudeau stuck our president in the back.

"A special place in hell" for one of America's closest allies? The President made it clear today. He also said that because of Trudeau's comments, he instructed USA trade representatives to not sign the communique the G-7 leaders had agreed upon expressing the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade".

"Not to sign a statement of solidarity, which stands for everything that we stand for, is a big mistake", Feinstein said.

"Trudeau picked the fight", he said, insisting the United States had engaged in good faith trade negotiations during the summit in Quebec.
