Trump advisers blast Trudeau with 'unprecedented' language: political scientist

A divisive summit in Canada at the weekend ended with U.S. President Donald Trump firing off a volley of tweets, venting anger against North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, the European Union and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday downplayed the feud between the USA and allies in the G7 after President Trump and members of his administration teed off on Justin Trudeau, with one saying there's a "special place in hell" for the Canadian prime minister.

In urging Trudeau to apologize for his comments, he also said the prime minister's statements were a "diplomatic betrayal" as Trump headed to Singapore to his high-profile summit with North Korean leader with Kim Jong-un.

Just as the Trudeau-hosted Group of Seven meeting of the world's leading industrialized nations had seemed to weather Trump's threats of a trade war, the president backed out of the group's joint statement that Trudeau said all the leaders had come together to sign.

But, Mrs May highlighted a need to "avoid a continued tit-for-tat escalation", adding to MPs: "That is why it was right that we had such an open and direct discussion at this summit".

Mr Trump also said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive auto industry, throwing the G7's efforts to show a united front into disarray.

Ms. May ducked Mr. Corbyn's question and when later asked by Conservative MP Crispin Blunt: "Trudeau or Trump?", she smiled and replied: "I'm not sure what activity he's asking me to undertake with either of them".

"Justin has agreed to cut all tariffs, all trade barriers between Canada and the United States, so I'm very happy", Trump told reporters. "The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the president".

Fox News host sorry for calling Trump, Kim 'two dictators'
She apologised on her show and on Twitter as critics called her gaffe a " Freudian slip ". Let's see how this meeting with the two dictators , *cough* I mean leaders goes.

In a sign of how limited their options are, Canadian officials said they planned to press harder with their USA lobbying campaign, focused on potentially sympathetic lawmakers outside the White House, while relying on support from allied nations and hoping Trump does not carry out all his threats.

Trump engaged Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a war of words and promised to continue recent trade protectionism.

The prime minister confirmed the European Union will impose "countermeasures" in response to the American tariffs, which she said "ultimately makes everyone poorer". He adds that America "cannot let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade anymore".

Kudlow's and Navarro's comments come on the heels of a tense G7 summit that left relations with USA allies even more fractured than before. "Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

"Then (Canadian Prime Minister) Justin (Trudeau) acts hurt when called out!" Freeland later told reporters that "we don't think that's a useful or productive way to do business".

President Trump unloaded on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau this week; slamming the "meek and mild" leader after he publicly criticized Trump's decision to slap hefty tariffs on his nation's exports.

Have you ever heard in your life a bigger load of crap from an American trade official? "I think we're in a hard place now, I'd like to see this thing settle down. On the contrary, as part of the USA law, we are part of the national defense base of the United States".

The G7 groups the United States, Japan, Germany, France, Britain, Italy and Canada.
