Following Trump's departure from the G7 summit, Trudeau said in a press conference that he told the USA president that his steel and aluminum tariffs were "kind of insulting", that Canada "will not be pushed around" and that it would not hesitate to impose retaliatory measures. Trump lashed out at his Canadian host over milk tariffs, which account for 0.2 percent of U.S.
Republican U.S. Senator Tom Cotton, however, said North Korea's leader could also face harsh words.
Over the weekend, President Trump suddenly retracted his endorsement of the final joint statement by the G-7 summit of world leaders, tweeting afterward he had instructed representatives "not to endorse" it. The ire directed at the prime minister by Trump and his advisors had confused some trade observers since the comments seemed to be just a reiteration of what the prime minister had said previously and not a personal insult. In a series of angry tweets, Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak" and said the U.S. won't be taken advantage of.
"I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message", he said.

Trudeau has declined to directly respond to Trump's criticism of him.
Those remarks then sparked a Twitter outburst from Trump in which he called Trudeau "so indignant".
Trump says Trudeau "probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions. That's going to cost him a lot of money". "The one thing politically it does mean: Now they have a clear scapegoat if NAFTA negotiations go sideways, they will be able to blame Donald Trump".
Earlier on Tuesday at the Washington conference, White House Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett said the United States and Canada need to "take a deep breath".
Still, winning the public relations war may not be enough for Trudeau to avoid additional U.S. trade penalties. "He learned", Trump said wagging his finger. During the Second World War, the USA joined Canada and the Allied forces to defeat the Axis powers. We protect Europe (which is good) at great financial loss, and then get unfairly clobbered on Trade. And I'll tell you this: "to my friends in Canada, that was one of the worst political miscalculations of a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history".
