Trump renews criticism of Trudeau

Trump Attacks Trudeau, Macron, Allies Ahead of G7 Summit: 'Won't Be Talking About the Russian Witch Hunt Hoax for a While' Trump believes 'progress made' in G7 trade talks

President Donald Trump's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow and his trade adviser Peter Navarro blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday for "betraying" the United States and engaging in "bad faith diplomacy" at this week's fractious G7 summit.

"[Mr Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Mr Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council who had accompanied Mr Trump to the summit of wealthy nations on Saturday, said on CNN's State of the Union.

Bruce Heyman, a former US ambassador to Canada, said he feared that Mr. Trump is deliberately setting the stage to start the process of pulling the United States out of NAFTA by "setting up a narrative" that Canada is cheating America.

Trump also called Trudeau "dishonest and weak", an insult Navarro repeated in his appearance Sunday. According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with USA (guess they were bragging and got caught!).

After Trump departed for Singapore for a highly anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trudeau criticized Trump for triggering a trade dispute and said Canada would retaliate with tariffs against the U.S. We will stand by them and anyone who would depart from them, once their back was turned, shows their incoherence and inconsistency. "We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", it said, reflecting the typical language of decades of G7 statements. Trudeau's office, in turn, said the what the Canadian leader said on Saturday was nothing new. He railed about what he called "ridiculous and unacceptable" tariffs on USA goods and vowed to end them.

In the bigger picture, Trump's provocations are gauged to elicit a reaction, others said - and Trudeau's response, far from off-the-cuff snarkiness, is also carefully planned. But even those vested in Canadian trade are not expected to come to Trudeau's defence as long as the United States economy is roaring.

But President Donald Trump has helped bring together the most bitter of Canadian enemies, as he lashed out at Trudeau following the Group of Seven meeting in Quebec, and even the country's most staunch conservatives have publicly backed up their Liberal prime minister for taking a tough tone in the U.S.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump".

British Prime Minister Theresa May "is fully supportive" of Trudeau and his leadership, a senior United Kingdom government source said, while European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted: "There is a special place in heaven for @JustinTrudeau".

Looking for news you can trust?

When Trump left Quebec, it was thought that a compromise had been reached, despite the tension and the determination of European leaders Macron and Merkel to push back against the U.S. president's protectionist policies.

Ford told the Toronto Sun that when it comes to trade talks with Americans he and his team will "consult" with "our federal counterparts" on the appropriate moves.

A French official insisted France and its fellow G7 European nations were maintaining their support for the communique and said anyone departing from the commitments made at the summit would be showing their "incoherence and inconsistency". Trump as a result did not sign onto the joint statement concluding the meeting.
