White House Economic Adviser: Canada's Trudeau 'Stabbed Us In The Back'

White House Economic Adviser: Canada's Trudeau 'Stabbed Us In The Back'

But the president also felt he couldn't be pushed around by the Canadian leader on the cusp of a major summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

White House Trade Adviser Peter Navarro had even harsher words for Trudeau.

"POTUS is not going to let a Canadian prime minister push him around ... on the eve of this", Larry Kudlow told CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday.

Martin said while Trudeau shouldn't wade into the name-calling, "he certainly has to call a fact a fact, and that's what he's doing".

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

The Prime Minister's Office did release a statement late Saturday, following Trump's tweets that said: "We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the G7 summit".

Speaking to reporters at Queen's Park on Sunday, Ford offered his support to Trudeau. As he entered G7 meetings in Quebec, he thanked residents for hosting world leaders and kept walking past reporters. "The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the President". "I'm arguing Trudeau picked the fight", Kudlow said.

Trump called Trudeau "dishonest and weak" in a tweet on Saturday.

"PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he "will not be pushed around". 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 US goods and services but is willing to do so.

O'Neal's parents are Ryan O'Neal and the late Fawcett, who were together from 1979 to 1997 and 2001 until her death in 2009. Redmond O'Neal, Ryan O'Neal and Farrah Fawcett attend the "Malibu's Most Wanted" Los Angeles Premiere on April 10, 2003.

After Trudeau announced that the members of the G7 had signed a joint statement, Trump took a jab at him on Twitter, stating that the United States will not endorse the communique.

The early exit also means he will be gone before allies begin closing news conferences likely to be laden with criticism of the United States stance on trade and Mr Trump's abrupt suggestion on Friday that Russian Federation be re-admitted to the elite grouping.

The German chancellor shared the photo on June 9 and captioned it simply, "Day two of the G7 summit in Canada: spontaneous meeting between two working sessions".

Never before have senior White House officials gone on television and made such claims about Canada's leader. Trump is due to meet with North Korea's Kim on Tuesday. "They know it", he insisted in his departing news conference.

Merkel is centre stage, arms planted on a table, with the Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, standing to her left, arms folded and a look of resignation on his face. "So, I ask you: He gets up in the airplane and leaves, and then Trudeau starts blasting him at a domestic news conference?"

"What we did this weekend, was come together, roll up our sleeves and figure out consensus language that we could all agree to on a broad range of issues".

"He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea", Kudlow told CNN.

"You just don't behave that way, OK?"

"It was a betrayal, it was a double-cross", he added. And he claimed, wrongly, that Canada and the USA had been close to a NAFTA deal before Trudeau's comment. He described Trudeau's news conference as "sophomoric" and a "political stunt".
