US blames Canada for G7 fiasco, says Trudeau 'stabbed us in the back'

The Latest: Merkel finds Trump's action sobering, depressing

"So he holds a press conference - the president is barely out of there on the plane to North Korea, and he starts insulting us, he starts talking about the U.S.is insulting Canada", Kudlow said.

Trump responded to the Canadian prime minster's news conference by tweeting that because of Trudeau's statement, he would not sign the communique that the G-7 nations had drafted at the summit.

And Roland Paris, a former foreign policy adviser to Trudeau, jabbed at Trump on Twitter: "Big tough guy once he's back on his airplane". You know, the way they say that you know if you're going to like somebody in the first five seconds? Trump has pointed to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's criticism of him as a reason for withdrawing from the consensus statement.

The Prime Minister said: "Where we disagree with our allies on something it is right that we say so and air the issue openly and frankly".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who also attended the summit, told German public television that she found Mr Trump's tweet disavowing the G7 statement "sobering" and "a little depressing".

"Kim must not see American weakness", he told CNN.

While other presidents and prime ministers have had testy relations - president Richard Nixon famously used a profane word, behind closed doors, to refer to Trudeau's father Pierre Trudeau, also in the context of trade talks - neither side has demonstrated this level of animosity since John Diefenbaker feuded with John F. Kennedy in the early 1960s.

The top White House economic adviser accused Canada's prime minister on Sunday of betraying President Donald Trump with "polarizing" statements on USA trade policy that risked making the American leader look weak on the eve of a historic summit with North Korea.

Just minutes after a joint communique, approved by the leaders of the Group of Seven allies, was published in Canada's summit host city Quebec, Trump launched his Twitter broadside, taking exception to comments made by Trudeau at a news conference.

"We would hope that the United States will similarly honour the commitments that they have made", he said, speaking before a parliamentary statement on the summit by Prime Minister Theresa May.

In an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union," Kudlow argued that Trudeau's critique amounted to a betrayal of the G7, as well as the U.S. Trudeau's office, in turn, said what the Canadian leader said on Saturday was nothing new.

Speaking at his closing news conference, Trudeau says the G7 has agreed to an "ambitious" communique - but he did not immediately release a document or provide details of where the exclusive club of wealthy democracies found common ground.

On trade, said she had been "very clear" that U.S. tariffs on European steel and aluminium imports were damaging and dialogue was needed to ensure the dispute did not escalate into a full-blown trade war.

The G7 also includes Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan.

Mr. Trump addressed the subject of global trade during an impromptu news conference at the summit on Saturday, saying that he does not want to see other countries take advantage of the U.S. over trade.
