White House blasts Trudeau over G7 statements

  • The Latest: Merkel finds Trump's action sobering, depressing

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had responded to Trump's recent threats and installing of tariffs in a press conference at the end of the summit. "I mean, he really kind of stabbed us in the back".

Following Trudeau's statement, Trump tweeted that the United States would not sign on to the summit's official communique- a largely symbolic but still largely unprecedented move.

The United States and Canada swung further on Sunday toward a diplomatic and trade crisis as top White House advisers lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a day after US President Trump called him "very dishonest and weak".

In a pointed criticism of Trump's policy, May said that the most effective way of reaping the benefits of globalisation was through multilateral action, adding: "It can not be done by taking unilateral action against your partners".

"If they retaliate, they're making a mistake", Mr. Trump said.

Mr Trump also said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive auto industry, throwing the G7's efforts to show a united front into disarray.

On trade, she said multilateral action was the way forward, not unilateral action against one's partners.

U.S. President Donald Trump angered his G7 allies last week by slapping them with hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum - a move that prompted Canada and the European Union to threaten duties of their own.

Later on June 9, after he left the G7 summit, Trump unleashed a barrage of tweets, likely while he was aboard Air Force One on his way to Singapore for his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - "Just left the @G7 Summit in attractive Canada".

At a post-match news conference, he added: "We will continue to improve and when the tournament starts, we will be there". We started well and the first-half was okay, then we let up and gave away too many chances.

It seems the true explanation for Trump's rhetorical attack on Trudeau is not Canadian tariffs or the content of the prime minister's news conference. Hours ago, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held a news conference in which he said Trump is prepared to offer North Korea unprecedented security assurances, although he did not specify what these guarantees would be.

The top White House economic adviser accused Canada's prime minister on Sunday of betraying President Donald Trump with "polarizing" statements on US trade policy that risked making the American leader look weak on the eve of a historic summit with North Korea.

What did Trudeau and Trump say?

His tweet, shortly after leaving Charlevoix in Quebec, came in response to what he claimed were "false statements" by the summit host, Canadian premier Justin Trudeau.

In view of threatened USA tariffs on auto imports, which would particularly affect Germany, Grenell said that he was a "big vehicle fan" and knew how important the industry was.

However, despite Trump's heated rhetoric, the USA ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, has expressed confidence that the trade conflict can be settled, but said it would take some time. We get on the plane, and then this guy, Trudeau, starts blasting us.

Meanwhile, Kudlow, speaking the "Face the Nation" on Sunday, said that Trudeau "should've known better."

Liberal MP and former dairy farmer Wayne Easter said a real sense of panic is building in his P.E.I. riding over the implications of Trump's pronouncements following his departure from the G7 gathering. "But to walk away from our allies in this way, I think, is a mistake".

Greg Valliere, the chief global strategist at Horizon Investments, wrote Monday that the back-and-forth would most likely only cement the resolve of both Trump and Trudeau. "Well, the in-factual, the non-factual part of this was they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said.
