Trump's Chief Economic Adviser Says Justin Trudeau "Stabbed Us in the Back"

Trump accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of making "false statements", and said the United States is looking into automobile tariffs.

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.

The aftermath of the G7 Summit was rife with strife Sunday, with American economic director Larry Kudlow saying Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "stabbed us in the back".

Mr Trump earlier warned his counterparts against retaliation after the USA imposed tariffs on steel and aluminium from Europe, Mexico and Canada - saying they would be "making a mistake".

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.

The White House has escalated its trade tirade by levelling more withering and unprecedented criticism against Canada's prime minister, branding Justin Trudeau a back-stabber unworthy of President Donald Trump's time.

"That's what weak dishonest Justin Trudeau did", he added.

Peter Navarro watches as President Donald Trump speaks before signing Section 232 proclamations on steel and aluminum imports in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on March 8, 2018 in Washington, D.C.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said at the G7.

Israel has tried to discredit the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement for years claiming it is anti-Semitic. Player Gonzalo Higuain said in an interview with ESPN "I think at the end we were able to do the right thing".

He told the G7 leaders during the summit that the U.S. wanted a quick end to trade practices that he said have led to an exodus of American companies and jobs to other countries.

Kudlow also insisted that Trudeau's remarks were created to make America look weak as Trump flies to Singapore for his meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

The office of German Chancellor Angela Merkel also said it stood by the communique.

Kudlow repeatedly charged Trudeau with the "betrayal" of Trump and other leaders of the G-7. "But I don't see any fundamental problem in the Canadian-American trade relationship".

Trump lashed out at Trudeau after the G7 issued a joint communique on Saturday in which the embattled alliance managed to overcome some differences and find areas of common ground.

"And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", he continued.

After bashing Trudeau and the other attendees, President Trump's top economic advisor actually took to CNN Sunday morning, claiming Prime Minister Trudeau "stabbed" America "in the back".

Trump on Saturday publicly humiliated Trudeau after he released the joint communique.
