But the president broadsided his allies after leaving the meeting by disavowing a joint statement the US had agreed to, criticizing Trudeau and vowing tariffs on automobiles.

Bashing the leader of one of America's venerable allies, the White House escalated its trade tirade and leveled more withering and unprecedented criticism Sunday against Canada's prime minister, branding Justin Trudeau a back-stabber unworthy of President Trump's time.

Trump lashed out at Trudeau after the G7 issued a joint communique on Saturday in which the embattled alliance managed to overcome some differences and find areas of common ground.

Mr Trump's salvo capped a rollecoaster two days of controversies that began with his suggestion Russian Federation be readmitted to the G7, then what a French official described as a "rant" full of "recriminations" against United States trading partners, followed by a denial of any tensions with leaders at the summit and his description of their relationship as a "10".

"In the name of the Western allies, he ought to come out today and wish President Trump well in the negotiations, instead of taking potshots at us", Kudlow said. "Well, the in-factual, the non-factual part of this was they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said.

Reacting to Mr Trump's tweets, Mr Trudeau's office said: "We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the summit".

Freeland reiterated that Canada would retaliate to United States tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way, adding the country would always be willing to talk.

Trump himself told reporters on Saturday that the summit was not contentious and called his relationship with G7 allies a "10".

Trump says 'looking forward' to resolving trade disputes at G7
US President Donald Trump speaks to the press as he leaves the G7 Summit in the Charlevoix town of La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada. That was Justin Trudeau's late father, who served several terms as Canada's prime minister, starting in the late 1960s.

According to BBC, Canada, the U.S., the U.K., France, Italy, Japan, and Germany agreed on "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade", as well as, the importance to fight protectionism.

Donald Trump and the White House are going after Justin Trudeau for this G-7 remarks over USA tariffs.

Just as the Trudeau-hosted G7 meeting of the world's leading industrialized nations had seemed to weather Mr. Trump's threats of a trade war, the president backed out of the group's joint statement that Trudeau said all the leaders had come together to sign.

Trudeau, in Quebec City for bilateral meetings with non-G7 leaders after the summit, did not comment as he arrived.

Sharply criticizing Trump's remarks on tariffs, Prime Minister Trudeau promised that Canada would answer with its own on July 1 unless the US reversed course. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.

"Europe will implement counter-measures against United States tariffs on steel and aluminum just like Canada, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said, voicing regret about Trump's decision to withdraw support for the communique". "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did".

Trump's conduct was "actually not a real surprise, we have seen this with the climate agreement or the Iran deal", Maas, a senior member of the Social Democrats (SPD), a partner in Chancellor Angela Merkel's governing coalition, told reporters. "It's a one-time shot and I think it's going to work out very well".
