  • Trump to leave G7 summit early amid feud with Trudeau, Macron

Trump accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of making "false statements", and said the United States is looking into automobile tariffs.

The US leader left the summit earlier than planned on Saturday to fly to Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, which he described as a "mission of peace".

Kudlow had been negotiating nicely with Trudeau at the summit in Quebec and the USA had agreed to join the joint communique, but Trump pulled out after he felt betrayed by Trudeau's news conference where the prime minister called Trump's tariffs on Canadian aluminum and steel exports "insulting".

Trudeau announced on Saturday that all G7 members had endorsed the joint communique; however, he noted that the US tariffs are "insulting" and Canada "will not be pushed around".

The G7 members are Canada, the U.S., U.K. Germany, Italy, Japan and France.

There has rarely been such a coordinated and acerbic series of attacks by White House advisers aimed at a USA ally, revealing the extent to which Trump possibly felt slighted by Trudeau as he left for his North Korea talks.

"When we disagree with our allies on something it is right that we say so and air the issue openly and frankly", she said at a news conference.

He told Fox News Mr. Trump "did the courtesy to Justin Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit".

Peter Navarro, a trade adviser to President Donald Trump, escalated the White House's rebuke of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, calling him weak and dishonest on Sunday. He had criticised USA tariffs at a press conference, as Trump was leaving early to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

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

The comments from Trudeau prompted Trump to criticize the Canadian leader on Twitter and decline to endorse the G7 communique.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said at the G7. But, Trump's defenders today say that he is simply standing up for America.

Navarro also blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Sunday, echoing the sentiments of White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow.

Kudlow said Trudeau had engaged in a "a sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption" and should apologize. He said Canada has to stand up for itself. In a pair of tweets, Trump slammed Trudeau for being inconsistent and announced that the US would not sign the joint statement. He said US representatives will examine the tariffs on automobiles coming into the country and bemoaned the Canadian tariffs that affect American companies and farmers.

It's a startling attack on the leader of the US neighbor and ally. "I have made it clear to the president that [imposing retaliatory tariffs] is not something we relish doing, but it's something that we absolutely will do".
