White House Economic Adviser: Canada's Trudeau 'Stabbed Us In The Back'

Премьер Италии поддержал Трампа и призвал вернуть Россию в G8

After the conclusion of the G7 summit in Quebec on Sunday, President Donald Trump and his top economic advisers hurled a barrage of insults at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

He said Trump had done Trudeau the "courtesy" of traveling to the summit when "he had other things, bigger things on his plate", referring to Trump's June 12 summit with North Korean ruler Kim Jong-un.

Mere hours earlier, Trudeau had announced that all G7 countries had signed the joint communique.

Mr Trudeau didn't respond to questions about Mr Trump when the prime minister arrived at a Quebec City hotel today for meetings with other world leaders. "As Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but also we will not be pushed around", he said.

The president also tweeted from aboard Air Force One that due to "Justin's false statements" the USA would not sign on with the other six members of the G-7 to a joint communique that was to follow the meeting.

On Saturday, en route to Singapore, President Trump tweeted that the United States will not endorse the communique. That was Justin Trudeau's late father, who served several terms as Canada's prime minister, starting in the late 1960s.

"We have a tremendous trade imbalance", Trump said during Saturday's press conference.

"He was polarizing", Kudlow said during a Sunday morning appearance on CNN's "State of the Union".

Mr Trump's salvo capped a rollecoaster two days of controversies that began with his suggestion Russian Federation be readmitted to the G7, then what a French official described as a "rant" full of "recriminations" against U.S. trading partners, followed by a denial of any tensions with leaders at the summit and his description of their relationship as a "10".

Some are calling it part of the "the Trump curse", how bad and embarrassing things seem to befall those critical of President Trump.

US President Donald Trump has imposed a 25 per cent tariff on import of steel from Canada and another 15 per cent on aluminium using the "national security interest" provisions of the existing American laws. "He was even willing to sign that socialist communique".

"Canada is very clear", Freeland said.

Kudlow called Trudeau's press conference a "sophomoric, political stunt for domestic consumption".

In a statement issued following Mr Trump's tweets, Mr Trudeau said he remained focused on what was accomplished at the G7 summit. "Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't", he tweeted.

"He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea -" Kudlow added.

Kudlow said that Trudeau's press conference criticisms of Trump's trade tariffs were inappropriate.

In an interview Sunday on German public television, Merkel also says European leaders won't be "taken advantage of" on trade.
