British Prime Minister Theresa May offered some support for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the fallout from the Group of Seven leaders meeting in Quebec, but she stopped short of condemning critical comments made by U.S. President Donald Trump's trade adviser.
Trump's tweets appeared to single out Trudeau, alleging he was "very dishonest & weak" in a series of Twitter posts as he backed out of the joint statement on fair trade, saying it should now be called "fool trade".
The joint statement between the leaders of the U.S., France, Germany, the U.K., Japan, Italy, and Canada comes after President Trump refused to back down from his decision to impose worldwide tariffs on goods, including steel and aluminum imports.
Justin Trudeau is raising eyebrows among internet sleuths who want to know what's going on with the Canadian prime minister's facial hair.
Later on June 9, after he left the G7 summit, Trump unleashed a barrage of tweets, likely while he was aboard Air Force One on his way to Singapore for his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - "Just left the @G7 Summit in handsome Canada".
Trump advisers had taken up the attack in appearances on Sunday's news shows, leveling more withering and unprecedented criticism against Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time.
Tusk's comments came shortly after President Trump's trade adviser Peter Navarro said there was a "special place in hell" for leaders who betrayed Trump.

In response to Mr Trump's decision to withhold USA support for the summit conclusions, a senior United Kingdom government source said: "We stand by the commitments made in the G7 communique". Although an event entirely comprising of US allies, Trump had angered the majority of the leaders before he had even arrived, imposing trade tariffs on European and Canadian exports. In an echo of Cold War meetings on neutral ground, Austria is encouraging the U.S. to hold a summit in Vienna, a White House official said last week. "But he acknowledged that deep disagreements remained between Mr. Trump and the leaders of the other nations, especially on trade".
Saying Trudeau's statements are "amateurish" and "sophomoric" only "for domestic consumption", Kudlow said it was Trudeau's remarks that had prompted Trump to pull out of the joint communique.
In response to Trump's tweets on Saturday, Trudeau's office contended that the Canadian leader said nothing he had not said previously "both in public and in private conversations" with Trump. She also said the USA president wasn't entirely wrong in pressing Germany to increase defence spending.
Trump continued tweeting Sunday evening about Trudeau, accusing Canada of making $100 billion in trade with the U.S.
"They should have said to him, 'God speed, you are negotiating with the insane nuclear tyrant in North Korea, and we are behind you, '" Kudlow added.
Russian President Vladimir Putin wasn't invited to the G-7 summit in Canada, although US President Donald Trump suggested he be readmitted. "We need to stand with our democratic allies". "Our tariffs are in response to his of 270 per cent on dairy!"
"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.
