Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks in wake of Trump-Kim summit

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's speech at the G7 summit, in which he rebuked President Trump and vowed to protect Canadian interests, has drawn comparisons to an iconic movie moment near and dear to the hearts of many a Hugh Grant fan.

On CNN's State of the Union, Trump economic advisor Larry Kudlow labeled Trudeau as "polarizing", "sophomoric", "deceptive", and "amateurish". "I'm unconcerned about our capacity to continue to do what we need to do".

As he flew from Quebec to Singapore for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump responded to Trudeau's comments on Saturday by withdrawing the United States from a joint document that summarized what was agreed to at the G-7 summit. "Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!" he tweeted.

The prime minister's silence on Monday 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 neighbours.

But the criticism left a former Canadian prime minister, Stephen Harper, stumped. The president also repeated claims that Canada overtaxes American dairy products under its supply management system and complained about Canadian automobiles flooding the US market.

Trade adviser Peter Navarro told "Fox News Sunday" that "there is a special place in hell for any leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy" with Trump.

Earlier this month, Trump imposed tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum from Canada and other American allies, a reversal from a previous indication that those countries would have an opportunity to avoid the tariffs.

"We finished the (G7) meeting and really everybody was happy".

MPs of all political stripes unanimously adopted a motion to that effect proposed by New Democrat MP Tracey Ramsey even as Trump continued to rail against what he described as unfair trade policies of Canada and other traditional USA allies. However instead due to President Trumps harsh remarks this uncalled for clash started.

Smith further said Trump's latest attitude towards Trudeau isn't a new thing and he has "been kicking allies in the teeth his whole presidency".

"I've never seen language like this, least of all from subordinates of the president directed at the prime minister of their greatest friend and ally", Mulroney said.

People close to the situation said they were disappointed the outreach had not been as productive as they hoped. He claims these unfair trade practices cost American jobs and somehow create a national security risk by weakening producers.

"Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" Mr Trump said the move would protect domestic producers that were vital to USA security.
