Trump pulls out of joint G7 statement, calls Trudeau "weak"

The Latest: Merkel finds Trump's action sobering, depressing US blames Canada for G7 fiasco, says Trudeau 'stabbed us in the back'

Trump is set to meet with the North's leader, Kim Jong Un, on Tuesday in Singapore in the first-ever summit between sitting leaders of the US and North Korea. 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".

From Singapore, where he is set to hold a historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, he unleashed a volley of angry tweets targeting the European Union, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and NATO allies, including Germany.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is "meek and mild", according to a recent Twitter tirade from President Trump. "Canada, thank you for the flawless organisation of G7!", he said further, about the meet hosted by Trudeau in Quebec.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said that while he's not an expert on the matter and agreed with critics that Russian Federation has been a bad actor, it's worth considering bringing the country back in the G8. "He's a pathetic little man-child".

In response to Trump's tweets on Saturday, Trudeau's office contended that the Canadian leader said nothing he had not said previously "both in public and in private conversations" with Trump. At a rare solo news conference before heading to Asia, Trump said he pressed for the G-7 countries to eliminate all tariffs, trade barriers and subsidies in their trading practices. Navarro later clarified that his comments were "the sentiment that was on Air Force One after that".

This video was taken during a joint news conference with Trudeau and the French president Emmanuel Macron ahead of the G7 summit. Big trade barriers against US farmers, and other businesses, will finally be broken.

So there you have it. Justin Trudeau's eyebrows are just fine, thanks. Trudeau stuck our president in the back.

"That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did", Navarro said. UK Prime Minister Theresa May stood with Trudeau on the issue of trade.

"He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea", Kudlow said.

"In general, it was an attack on the president", he claimed. "I don't understand the obsession with trade relations with Canada", he said on Fox News, given that Canada is the biggest single buyer of American goods and services in the world. For democracy's sake, we must control ourselves!

Another stumbling block was the part regarding climate change, where the United States didn't want to see any reference to the Paris Agreement, from which the Trump administration has withdrawn, The Star reported.

At his closing G7 news conference, Trudeau once again refers to the national-security premise behind the tariffs as "kind of insulting" and then explains Canada's retaliation - "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 because Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

Trump may not be the free trader Kudlow describes him to be. Even before arriving in Charlevoix, the American leader drew fire from his G7 peers for new tariffs on imported steel and aluminum products including those from Canada and the European Union.
