White House economic advisor says Justin Trudeau ‘stabbed us in the back’

Leaders wave after posing for family Donald Trump: Top economies should drop all tariffs

The remarks apparently upset Trump, who had left the conference early to travel to Singapore for a highly anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

The comments come in the midst of Trump's ongoing trade war with allied nations.

"The United States has been taken advantage of for decades and decades", Trump said.

"These issues are too fundamental for the World Trade Organization process to resolve", said.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he said.

Trump also repeated an earlier proposal that USA trading partners should drop all trade barriers, including tariffs and subsidies to industries and producers in their own countries. "And it's going to stop".

"Of course it was, in large part", Kudlow said, noting Trudeau made his comments as Trump was en route to Singapore. "And if it's not fixed, then we're not going to deal with these countries". They also discussed speeding up talks and the future of Nafta, a Canadian government official said late Friday. Readmitting Russia to the group would be an "asset", according to the president.

Trudeau announced Saturday, following the conclusion of the G-7 summit, that he plans to move forward with retaliatory tariffs in direct response to Trump's controversial new tariffs.

Trudeau said he told Trump that readmitting Russian Federation "is not something that we are even remotely looking at at this time".

A subsequent visit in April this year warranted only a working lunch for the German leader, several days after fellow European Union leader Macron got the full, formal state dinner treatment from Trump.

Command & Conquer makes its way to smartphones with Rivals
The heavy focus on multiplayer gameplay is also likely to dissuade fans of the single-player campaigns in the original game. Command & Conquer Rivals is a free-to-play mobile title that the company says places PvP action at its heart.

He says Russia's return as a member of the Group of Seven would be "an asset".

Russian Federation was suspended in 2014 because of its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.

Trump placed the blame on his predecessor, President Barack Obama. "He was the one who let Crimea get away - that was during his administration", he said, adding, "Obama can say all he wants, but he allowed Russian Federation to take Crimea".

It was not clear what Trump thought Obama should have done to prevent Putin from sending in Russian troops to seize the Black Sea peninsula from neighboring Ukraine.

The communique said the leaders of the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany, and Japan agreed on the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism.

Trump has announced tariffs of up to $150 billion on Chinese goods over USA complaints of Beijing's trade practices and its alleged theft of US technology. "That's a very profitable answer if we have to do it", he said at a press conference.

French President Emmanuel Macron stared at Trump after he sat down.

"Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau had told reporters as he reiterated that Canada would retaliate against USA tariffs on steel and aluminum, adding Trump's rationale had been insulting.

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".

Once again, Trump emphasized that the days of the US getting the short end of the stick in its trading relationships with the world were over under his watch. A lot of people wrote a couple of things that weren't quite true. A little bit accurate, perhaps. "We have a little test every once in a while when it comes to trade". On Friday, he reiterated a threat to quit the existing pact altogether if he doesn't get his way, only days after White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Trump wouldn't walk away.
