Trump leaves G7 meet in shambles, calls Trudeau 'dishonest liar'

  • Trump told Macron EU worse than China on trade

President Donald Trump went on a Twitterstorm after his arrival in Singapore bashing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, kvetching about how much the United States pays towards North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, and calling out Germany for not paying its fair share.

"Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries", Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said.

Trump also took aim at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation for relying too heavily on the USA for their security.

He added: "Canadians are polite, we're reasonable but we also will not be pushed around".

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

Those tensions boiled over on Saturday, with Trudeau and European leaders reaffirming plans to institute retaliatory measures and Trump lashing out in response by refusing to endorse the the G7 communique, a negotiated statement on shared priorities among the group.

A former USA ambassador to Canada called on Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro to apologize for saying "there's a special place in hell" for Trudeau, whom he accused of practising "bad-faith diplomacy" at the weekend G7 summit in Quebec.

Former prime minister Brian Mulroney predicts Donald Trump's unprecedented diatribe against Justin Trudeau is a passing storm.

It's laughable to hear the White House insisting Trump won't be "pushed around" by Justin Trudeau, and trying to blame him for the possible failure of NAFTA.


Trump's supporters also criticized Trudeau. Can't do it in person.

The president has accused Canada of taking advantage of American workers through their trade practices. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore. And what did Trudeau do as soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace?

Asked about the president's Twitter blasts, Trudeau says June 7 that he won't sink to that level - "I've been firm, I've been clear, but I don't think descending into insults is right for the way Canada engages with the world". "That will not stand".

White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Sunday intensified the administration's feud with Justin Trudeau, calling the Canadian prime minister's criticisms of President Donald Trump's tariff proposals "a betrayal" that "really kind of stabbed us in the back". "The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the President", the office added.

Trudeau, in Quebec City for bilateral meetings with non-G7 leaders after the summit, did not comment as he arrived. But even more frightening, welcome to Trump's new America. "They're also anxious about the retaliatory measures that we will take".

"We should all be nervous about it", Pallister said. Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%.

"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade anymore".

"The United States loses political influence in the rest of the world, and they also lose position as a centerpiece in efforts to find global joint mechanisms and set the agenda", said Solberg, who had been invited to attend the summit.
