U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference after his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore June 12, 2018.

Among the many topics the president addressed was his recent Twitter campaign against Trudeau, whom he has called "dishonest" and "weak".

When Mr Trump's tweets withdrawing support from the G7 statement hit on Sunday, the Prime Minister's office said Mr Trudeau had not said anything in his closing news conference he has not said to the US President before.

In the end, Trump never visited the sessions on climate or the ocean, but held its own news conference, where he slammed "unfair trade" and promised to cut ties with countries that didn't adhere to a "zero tariffs", policy, then leaving for a summit in Singapore.

Trump said Trudeau "probably doesn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions and I see the television and he's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States and I say 'push him around?"

In the same set of tweets, Trump said: "Justin acts hurt when called out!"

Trudeau last week said in a U.S. television interview that Canada had "flexibility" on dairy, while U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue told U.S. Farm Report that Canada offered dairy concessions that were insufficient.

"(Trudeau) really kind of stabbed us in the back", White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow, who had accompanied Trump to Canada, said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Growing tensions between the United States and Canada after a series of attacks from President Donald Trump and his aides have left Republicans on Capitol Hill as stupefied as much of the rest of the world. But the trolled Prime Minister had his staunch supporters too.

As the Trump administration came out swinging, the response from congressional leaders was. total silence.

Ms. May also rejected President Trump's suggestion that Russian Federation should be brought back into the G7.

"They can continue to have a supply management system, but they can't have the incredibly high tariffs and other barriers and manoeuvres that they do to deal with the problems that are created by the supply management system", Vilsack said. "The problem was that in conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate". "We just shook hands!"

Ries says that strong stance could help more Americans realize they don't want a trade war with Canada.

The U.S. actually has a trade surplus with Canada. "I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do because Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said Saturday. May said the USA has already asked about negotiating a trade agreement post-Brexit and she expressed confidence that the United Kingdom government will be able to negotiate a fair arrangement.
