White House economic advisor says Justin Trudeau ‘stabbed us in the back’

U.S. President Donald Trump talks with Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a bilateral meeting at the G7 Summit in Charlevoix, Quebec, Canada, June 8, 2018.

Before the G-7 summit, Trump scuffled with Macron over the tariffs.

Larry Kudlow, a former CNBC commentator who is now Trump's top economic adviser, said Trudeau had engaged in "betrayal" of the U.S.

Kudlow alleged that the Canadian Prime Minister used the G-7 summit for his domestic political consumption. "We coordinated very closely with the European Union, with Mexico, on our list of retaliatory measures and actions".

"They pay only a fraction of the cost - and laugh", he wrote, adding that the European Union needed to pay "much more" to help fund the global military alliance, which comprises 28 members including the UK, US, Germany, Canada and Turkey. The European Union targets USA -built cars with a 10-percent tariff, while the United States distinguishes between vans or pickup trucks and other cars.

Trump's attacks have Canadian businesses that use aluminum and steel very anxious, said Ontario Conservative MP John Brassard, who added that there is real concern that there will be serious job implications in very short order.

Hours after Trump withdrew his support for the joint statement and attacked Trudeau, White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro drove the message home on Sunday morning news shows in an extraordinary assault on a close USA ally and neighbor.

President Donald Trump on Saturday said the United States will not endorse a G7 communique via a tweet that accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of making "false statements". "We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", the members said, reflecting the typical language of decades of G7 statements.

'Avengers: Infinity War' crosses $2 billion in box office
It's now the third highest-grossing offshore release of all time behind Avatar ($2.027 billion), and Titanic ($1.528 billion). The film now sits at #4 of the all-time box office list and is $67 million away from passing Star Wars: The Force Awakens .

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".

Trudeau himself was nowhere to be seen Monday, taking a break after hosting the tense, three-day summit, to which Trump arrived late, left early and then upended with a Twitter tirade from Air Force One.

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

"In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters", German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said when asked about Mr Trump's U-turn, adding it would take much longer to rebuild lost trust.

Reneging on the commitments agreed in the communique showed "incoherence and inconsistency", it said in a statement.

As well, she said the government should accelerate work on its Plan B in the event that Trump blows up NAFTA or follows through on threats to impose tariffs on autos and auto parts - a move Ambrose said would be devastating to Canada's economy.

"He's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States". It came in sharp contrast to a roar of disapproval among Canadian politicians, who banded together across party lines to denounce Trump's attack and praise the bilateral and trading relationship between the two neighbors. "And if it's not fixed, we're not going to deal with these countries".
