Trump leaves G7 meet in shambles, calls Trudeau 'dishonest liar'

US signs G-7 declaration calling for reduction of tariffs after tense summit with allies

US signs G-7 declaration calling for reduction of tariffs after tense summit with allies

The United States and Canada are facing a diplomatic and trade crisis as top White House advisers hurled insults at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday morning, accusing him of "stabbing the U.S. in the back".

On Saturday, Trudeau used a press conference to refuse U.S.'s demand for a sunset clause in NAFTA, the agreement that Trump has on various moments, pushed to abolish or renegotiate.

Canada's House of Commons has unanimously condemned personal attacks on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau by US President Donald Trump and his aides as the famously polite nation simmered over the weekend broadsides by its US ally.

And Roland Paris, a former foreign policy adviser to Trudeau, jabbed at Trump on Twitter: "Big tough guy once he's back on his airplane".

Merkel, whose nation is a G-7 member, also said the European Union would "act" against the US trade measures, which European leaders regard as going against the rules of the World Trade Organization.

"We do protect our dairy industry", said Charest.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel found the contentious Group of Seven summit with U. S. "We make commitments and keep them".

President Donald Trump has ramped up his messaging about the G7 and Canada in recent days, accusing the other G7 countries of unfair trade practices. According to Trudeau, he told the president that Canadians may be polite and reasonable but they will not be pushed around and that his nation doesn't "relish" putting tariffs on USA goods and services but is willing to do so.

Trudeau has so far not commented on Trump's tirade.

"There are always irritants in relationships", Pompeo said, adding that without partners like Canada, "we wouldn't be in this place, we wouldn't have this diplomatic opportunity" with the North.

He will arrive at the annual gathering, held this year in Quebec, but will leave on Saturday morning before the event is over, heading to Singapore for his highly anticipated summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

June 10 - Trump's economic advisor Larry Kudlow tells CNN that Trudeau "stabbed us in the back".

Kudlow, in a separate TV appearance, said Trudeau was "polarizing" and "really kind of stabbed us in the back".

Among other insults the president levelled at the PM, Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak", and accused Canada of ripping the US off in trade.

Trump contends that other countries "have been taking advantage of the United States on trade".

Justin Trudeau's stance was solid and clear! And I'll tell you this: "to my friends in Canada, that was one of the worst political miscalculations of a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history".

After the conclusion of the summit, Trump again said he would not allow other countries to impose barriers on the United States.
