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

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

"Actually, Trudeau did not make President Trump look weak".

"If the expectation was that a weekend in lovely Charlevoix....was going to transform the president's outlook on trade and the world, then we didn't quite reach that bar", Trudeau said.

Trump wasn't alone in attacking Canada: Two of the president's highest-ranking economic advisers also joined in.

KUDLOW: Kim must not see American weakness.

After departing from the Quebec summit for Singapore, Trump tweeted that Trudeau's remarks at a news conference, where he said Canada would not be pushed around, "were very dishonest and weak". "We don't think that that is a useful or productive way to do business".

While other presidents and prime ministers have had testy relations - president Richard Nixon famously used a profane word, behind closed doors, to refer to Trudeau's father Pierre Trudeau, also in the context of trade talks - neither side has demonstrated this level of animosity since John Diefenbaker feuded with John F. Kennedy in the early 1960s.

But unity was torn apart when the U.S. president took exception to Mr Trudeau calling United States policy "insulting". Can't do it in person. "He's a pathetic little man-child".

Mr. Trudeau said on Saturday during a news conference that Canada will "move forward with retaliatory measures" on July 1 in response to the Trump administration's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico.

Asked what Trudeau did that amounted to betrayal, Kudlow criticized the Canadian leader for holding a press conference in which he called USA tariffs "insulting".

"That's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", Navarro said.

Trump lawyer Giuliani says president can probably pardon himself
Giuliani added that a subpoena of Trump is "unnecessary" because Mueller's team has everything they need already. He said that Trump wants to testify but that Giuliani and his team are leaning against recommending that.

Trump travelled to Singapore from Canada, where he met other world leaders.

Navarro calls that a "socialist communique" that Trump pulled out of. And what did Trudeau do as soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace?

Trudeau fires back on May 31 over the tariffs being applied on the premise Canada poses a national security threat to the U.S. "That will not stand".

Trudeau "really kinda stabbed us in the back", top U.S. economic advisor Larry Kudlow said on CNN's "State of the Union". "There is a movement in our party that Trump's seized that got him the nomination, and eventually became president of the United States". "Let's be serious", the French official, speaking on condition of anonymity, added.

But the criticism left a former Canadian prime minister, Stephen Harper, stumped.

Some 75 per cent of Canadian exports go to the USA, making Canada uniquely vulnerable to a United States trade war. From promoting democracy and to fighting terrorism, "we're on the same page".

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he said.

The European Union on Monday backed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after U.S. President Donald Trump branded him "dishonest" and "weak" following a Group of Seven summit of leaders.

Navarro was referring to the prime minister's announcing after the Group of Seven meeting Saturday that Canada will "not be pushed around" by the USA with its decision to slap tariffs on some imports from Canada and other countries.

"It is a historic negotiation and there is no way this president is not going to stand strong", Kudkow said on CBS' Face the Nation.
