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

Mr Kudlow suggested Mr Trump saw Mr Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before that meeting, saying the president will not "let a Canadian prime minister push him around ..."

Trump continued tweeting Sunday evening about Trudeau, accusing Canada of making $100 billion in trade with the U.S.

Trump was reacting to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who said Saturday that Canada would retaliate for Trump's proposed new tariffs. "Our tariffs are in response to his 270 percent on dairy".

Trudeau didn't respond to questions about Mr. Trump when the prime minister arrived at a Quebec City hotel Sunday for meetings with other world leaders, though Freeland later told reporters that "we don't think that's a useful or productive way to do business".

Donald Trump is due to fly into Quebec on Friday morning for a G7 meeting which, even before it has begun, is already on the way to being the most acrimonious in the summit's history.

Kudlow, who was in Canada with President Trump for the G-7 meeting, told CNN on Sunday that the US had come to an agreement with the other highly-industrialized nations in the group on a joint communique until Trudeau's "sophomoric play". "We know that a non-partisan majority in Congress and the Senate and above all in the USA public feels just the same".

Trump also reportedly didn't put on his headphones for translation when French President Emmanuel Macron spoke during the session.

A day after the G7 summit, German Chancellor Angela Merkel hit back at President Donald Trump's tariffs.

Navarro, the Trump trade adviser, said his harsh assessment of what "bad faith" Trudeau did with "that stunt press conference" on Saturday "comes right from Air Force One". "He did a great disservice to the whole G7", Kudlow said. On Twitter he accused Trudeau of "false statements" and wrote that he had ordered his aides to withdraw USA endorsement of the joint communique.

Kudlow also accused Trudeau of trying to undermine the US president at a critical time before his summit with the reclusive Kim on Tuesday.
