Trump Calls Justin Trudeau 'Very Weak And Dishonest'

"Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!" he wrote.

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.

Trump clashed with Trudeau after the prime minister said Canada would enact retaliatory tariffs in response to United States tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

"Applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applied to us", said Trudeau. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" a second tweet read. "The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the President".

Trump also broke with other G7 leaders by calling for Russian Federation to be re-admitted to the group.

However, Edward Alden, also a CFR senior fellow, said repairing relations with our immediate neighbors Mexico and Canada, who had felt NAFTA would shield them from the American government's more extreme protectionist measures, have found themselves essentially abandoned.

Trump also repeated an earlier proposal that US trading partners should drop all trade barriers, including tariffs and subsidies to industries and producers in their own countries.

In a statement, The Associated Press reported, a spokesman for Trudeau did not address Trump's tweeted insults. Copies that begin "We, the Leaders of the G7..." were distributed in the press room stamped "Approved".

On board Air Force One an AFP reporter was first told that Trump had indeed approved the agreement, only to be told later of the tweets.

The president warned America would win any trade war if they tried to retaliate against new tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

It was authored by drummer Mick Fleetwood , who reflected on Kirwan's stint as a guitarist during the group's formative years. His most recent work involved three solo albums which were given a belated CD release in February 2006, but only in Japan.

Ahead of his departure, Trump had criticised his predecessors for negotiating "unfair" trade deals.

"We commit to modernize the WTO to make it more fair as soon as possible".

"We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", the statement said.

Trudeau, who has been sparring with Mr. Trump on trade in recent days, announced at the conclusion of the G-7 summit in Canada that the retaliatory tariffs will go into effect July 1.

"The European Union is brutal to the United States ..."

He also said relationships with his G7 partners were a "10" before he left. "You know, it's like the gig is up".

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Mr Trump's announcement on Twitter had destroyed trust and Europe's answer must be to stick even closer together.

European leaders had put a fearless face on the results.

In a statement on Sunday, French President Emmanuel Macron's office said all of Europe would continue to stand behind the communiqué, which included a commitment by the seven leading industrialized democracies to a "rules-based global trading system" and a pledge to "continue to fight protectionism".
