White House slams Canadian PM Justine Trudeau; accuses him of betrayal

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro lit into Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday, saying there's a "special place in hell" for a world leader that double crosses U.S. President Donald Trump.

Tweeted Trump in a series of tweets starting last night: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the USA massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

"As Canadians, we are polite, we're reasonable, but also we will not be pushed around,"Trudeau said".

Trudeau's announcement, which came after the G-7 leaders signed a joint statement on trade, obviously frustrated the US envoy, spurring Trump to revoke the USA endorsement of the statement. Trump tweeted that Trudeau was "very dishonest & weak".

When Tapper asked if Trump was planning any payback for Trudeau's comments, Kudlow said he wasn't aware of any further moves.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said: "In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters".

On Twitter, Mr. Trump called his remarks "very dishonest and weak", citing Canada's imposition of tariffs on dairy products.

Kudlow, in a separate TV appearance, said Trudeau was "polarizing" and "really kind of stabbed us in the back". A Trudeau spokesman, Cameron Ahmad, said Saturday night that Trudeau "said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public and in private conversations" with Trump.

"After calling out Trudeau and Macron before the summit, he took a different approach on Saturday, "[congratulating] he leaders of other countries for crazily being able to make these trade deals that were so good for their countries and bad for the United States" and chastising his predecessors for allowing the be taken advantage of.

The two-day G7 summit that began on Friday, was held in La Malbaie, Quebec province.

"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in", Trump told reporters shortly before flying out of the ongoing Group of Seven summit. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) said on CBS' "Face The Nation" that "right now, the President is actually driving our allies away from us as we need them even more, while welcoming in the Russians".

Mr Trump has angered America's closest allies by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico.

He instructed USA representatives not to sign the communique from the summit, raising new questions about Mr. Trump's strained relationship with leaders of historic allies.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau then "acts hurt when called out!"
