Trump followed up on Sunday with tweets calling free trade with Canada "fools trade" and said Trudeau "acts hurt when called out".

How should Trudeau respond to the White House's insults?

"If what happened at the G-7 repeats at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, then we are in a worrying situation". Kudlow was referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Can't do it in person.

The coordinated attack against Trudeau from the USA officials, not to mention Trump's tweets calling Trudeau "weak" and dishonest, has led former US ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman to conclude the White House is trying to make Canada the scapegoat for troubled NAFTA negotiations.

"And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", he said. The US president and Mr Trudeau have had a friendly relationship in the past, but tensions over US tariffs have strained the diplomatic partnership. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore. European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted: "There is a special place in heaven" for Trudeau. "That will not stand".

"We get on the plane and then this guy Trudeau starts blasting us", Kudlow told CNN.

Chief Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow said it is unclear if the US will be able to renegotiate NAFTA amid heightened tensions with Canada.

Elon Musk's Boring Company has gotten its $500 flamethrowers into the hands of consumers for the first time. He has advertised the flamethrowers as "guaranteed to liven up any party", drawing a huge reaction online.

"Don't blame Trump. It was Trudeau who started blasting Trump after he left, after the deals had been made". He learned. That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada. "The Canadians will regret this action by their prime minister", Gorka said. "I own that. That was my mistake, those were my words". From promoting democracy and to fighting terrorism, "we're on the same page".

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

Navarro then went on Fox News and harshly criticized Trudeau in one of the fiercest attacks aimed at a foreign head of state by a relatively obscure administration official.

Officials in two different European capitals said there isn't a "Plan B" to configure an worldwide trade and defense system without US leadership or even involvement. "I don't know what it might be, but the message that the president sent was so strong to one of our allies that I really don't understand why they would do that unless he truly felt that there had been a violation of trust".

Earlier today, Trudeau cheered Trump's bid to broker a deal to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons, but he stayed mum on the USA administration's persistent trash talk.

For dairy products, which has been the focus of Trump's anger, those tariffs range from almost 300 per cent for excess imports of butter and cream to 270 per cent for certain dairy powders to 240 per cent for cheese, whole milk and yogurt.
