Trump Aide Larry Kudlow Calls Justin Trudeau Trade Comments A 'Betrayal'

German Chancellor Angela Merkel acknowledged differences between the United States and the six other members of the G7 remained, but said a joint statement on trade was expected to be issued at the end of the summit.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable, but we will also not be pushed around", the prime minister said. "You know, here's the thing". That's what weak dishonest Justin Trudeau did. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe stands next to Trump, also with folded arms, as French President Emmanuel Macron leans in next to Merkel.

Mrs May added: "President Trump and I had a brief word here at the summit about how he is looking forward to his visit to the United Kingdom and I look forward to welcoming him to the United Kingdom".

Larry Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council, lashed out at Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau as "amateurish" and "sophomoric" for a news conference he gave after Trump left the Group of Seven summit on Saturday.

Trudeau told reporters that he had spoken of retaliatory measures that Canada would take next month in response to Trump's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.

Kudlow acknowledged Trump's reaction to Trudeau's comments was "in large part" about the meeting with Kim.

After Mr. Trump's departure from the G-7, Mr. Trudeau held a press conference Saturday stating that all of the member nations, including the USA, had signed a communique pledging to lower tariffs and other trade barriers. I've worked with him in good faith getting through a good communique on Friday and Saturday.

But Trump remains firm in his determination to apply tariffs in a situation he believes is unfair to America's economy.

Navarro said Trump did Trudeau a "favour" by merely attending the summit in Canada and "was even willing to sign that socialist communique". Canadians, he said, "will not be pushed around".

The outburst suggested that any deal had collapsed and his threat to impose sanctions on auto imports will outrage his ostensible allies - especially Germany and Canada, major exporters to the USA market.

Trump negotiated in good faith on the communique agreed by the other members of the G7, only to have Trudeau criticize USA policy after he left, Kudlow said.

Merkel said she expects that all G7 nations will sign a final joint statement, although disagreements remain over the wording on trade, Iran and Russian Federation. "We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", it said, reflecting the typical language of decades of G-7 statements.

Morneau said that Canada is prepared, should the trade war escalate. However, in the context of calling to readmit Russian Federation to the G7 - it had been the G8 until Moscow was expelled due to its actions in Ukraine - Trump's comments appeared to hint that the White House was creeping closer to de jure recognition of Russia's control of the Ukrainian peninsula.

"I would say that the level of relationships is a 10 - we have a great relationship".

A German government spokesman also said that Berlin stands by the jointly agreed G7 communique in which leaders underlined the crucial role of a rules-based global trading system and promised to fight protectionism.
