Donald Trump Slams Justin Trudeau, Calls Him "Dishonest & Weak" Over G7 Verdict

Europe will implement counter-measures against US tariffs on steel and aluminium just like Canada, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Sunday, voicing regret about President Donald Trump's abrupt decision to withdraw support for a G7 communique.

Mr Trump, who left the summit in La Malbaie early to head for his talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, told reporters the U.S. needed protectionist tariffs because "we are like the piggy bank that everyone is robbing".

Kudlow, the White House National Economic Council director, appearing on CNN's "State of the Union," described Trudeau's remarks as a "sophomoric play".

However, Merkel avoided giving a definitive answer to the question of whether Germany will stop seeing the USA as an "important partner".

Trump left Quebec before the G-7 summit had ended to head to Singapore, ahead of a highly anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a longtime foe of the United States.

"Kim must not see American weakness".

"I can't fault Trudeau for how he's handled Trump or tried to handle it", said Andrew MacDougall, who acted as communications director for former Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper. These differences need to be sorted out and in addition, India could also lower taxes on American products, increase its imports from the USA and in exchange seek greater exports to the US.

Justin Trudeau and President Trump participate in the working session at the G7 summit on Friday. "The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the president".

"That's what matters", he wrote.

"I would say that the level of relationships is a 10 - we have a great relationship".

"International cooperation can not depend on being angry and on sound bites".

Shortly after that statement was published online, Trump complained about comments made by Trudeau and revoked his support.

Soon afterwards, Trump rejected in a series of angry tweets from Air Force One the text of a G7 consensus statement - traditionally a paean to shared Western values and objectives under American leadership.

"[Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said.

The US leader has blasted Europeans, Germany above all, for failing to spend enough on their own defense, claiming they are taking advantage of US military power. And so we are talking to many countries.

In the bigger picture, Trump's provocations are gauged to elicit a reaction, others said - and Trudeau's response, far from off-the-cuff snarkiness, is also carefully planned. "You know, it's like the gig is up".

"The U.S. pays close to the entire cost of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation - protecting many of these same countries that rip us off on trade (they pay only a fraction of the cost - and laugh!)", he tweeted.

"He followed up by asking why the U.S. should "allow countries to continue to make "massive trade surpluses", asserting that it is "not fair to the people of America" and that the USA is suffering under a "$800 billion trade deficit".

European officials said Trump had tried to water down the language in the draft communique on the WTO and rules-based trade.
