Trump gave "a long, frank rant", the official said, repeating a position he carried through the 2016 U.S. election campaign into the White House that the United States had suffered at the hands of its trading partners, with French president Emmanuel Macron pushing back on the assertion and Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe chiming in.

In a second tweet, Mr. Trump said: "PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he "will not be pushed around" Very dishonest and weak".

Former prime minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, reacts to dispute between Trump and Trudeau at the G7 summit and discusses the North Korea summit on 'Sunday Morning Futures'.

When asked if the president shares his views, Navarro said that the sentiment came from "Air Force One".

Trump announced after Trudeau's press conference that the USA would not sign onto the G-7 communique.

Reacting to Mr Trump's tweets, Mr Trudeau's office said: "We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the summit. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270 percent on dairy!" the United States president tweeted.

Saying Trudeau is "dishonest & weak", he also threatened "tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!" Trudeau stuck our president in the back.

In his news conference, Mr Trudeau had spoken of retaliatory measures that Canada would take next month in response to Mr Trump's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.

"It's nothing dramatic, we just don't want to take any risk and he was able to sprint in training". Germany host Saudi Arabia here on Friday.

Kudlow, who was in Canada with President Trump for the G-7 meeting, told CNN on Sunday that the US had come to an agreement with the other highly-industrialized nations in the group on a joint communique until Trudeau's "sophomoric play".

Kudlow said the US participated in G7 talks and bilateral talks on Nafta in good faith and that Trump had been "charming".

"Canada is our closest ally, our best friend, our best trading partner in the world", he said.

At one point Kudlow, 70, referred to Canada's leader as "Pierre" Trudeau, confusing the prime minister with his late father, who served in the same capacity for more than 15 years between 1968 and 1984 and died in 2000.

"I'm arguing Trudeau picked the fight", Kudlow said.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

Leaders from Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, the European Union and Japan attended a tense meeting this past Friday and Saturday at the G7 summit.

"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. Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland met with Mr. Trump's trade chief, Robert Lighthizer, at the G7 to discuss the pact and is scheduled to see him again in Washington this week.

Trump insisted relationships with allies were a "10" just before he left the summit.
