Trump says has good relationship with Canada's Trudeau after G7 meeting

Trump roiled the weekend Group of Seven meeting of industrialized nations in Canada by agreeing to a group statement on trade only to withdraw from it while flying to Asia.

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".

The attack on a longtime ally and its leader drew sharp criticism.

Navarro wasn't the only Trump official to go after Trudeau. "Then Justin acts hurt when called out!" The standard line from Republicans since the president came into office has been that they'll work with him when it's good for their states and the country, and oppose him when it's bad.

Yet his top diplomat, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, downplayed the severity of the rift.

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", said Trump, who flew from Canada to Singapore for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"We hope it doesn't come to that, but if the USA tariffs remain in effect, we will impose our tariffs on July 1", he said.

"It's time for action and mobilizing Congress to push back against the president, Sen. That will not stand".

Larry Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council, lashed out at Trudeau as "amateurish" and "sophomoric". Freeland later told reporters that "we don't think that's a useful or productive way to do business". Can't do it in person.

On Tuesday, Trump said: "We have a big trade deficit with Canada.it's close to $100 billion a year deal loss".

The summit was seen as an opportunity to overcome disagreements on new tariffs imposed by the U.S. on imports.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May told MPs on Monday that she wanted to pay "a particular tribute" to Mr Trudeau for his leadership and skilful chairing. From promoting democracy and to fighting terrorism, "we're on the same page". "And in fact the picture with Angela Merkel, who I get along with very well, where I'm sitting there like this. we're waiting for the document because I wanted to see the final document as changed".
