Trump warns Trudeau: Trade row 'will cost Canada a lot of money’

Theresa May meeting Donald Trump

Peter Navarro, the White House director of trade policy, was perhaps one of the fiercest critics of one other particular leader who attended the summit, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"I think he set the news in a completely wrong direction as he headed off to Singapore", Heyman said.

"My mission was to send a strong signal of strength".

Navarro now regrets the "inappropriate" language he used, he admitted at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday.

Two points of the joint communique formulated by the G7 members were not negotiated with the USA president, but that didn't prevent the Canadian prime minister from announcing that all member-states had reached common ground on the final statement.

Speaking during a press conference following his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore, Trump suggested Trudeau's remarks during the G7, in which he claimed that Canada "will not be pushed around" by the USA, has soured the relationship between the pair.

In a pair of tweets, Trump lashed out at his G-7 host, accusing its leader of being dishonest and weak and contending that Canada had taken advantage of us interests.

Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, suggested that Trump saw Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before the summit with Kim.

Navarro exacerbated bilateral tensions between the USA and Canada on Sunday when he criticized Trudeau for double-crossing President Donald Trump. The U.S.at the end of May imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum imports against Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada; he learned", Mr Trump said wagging his finger.

Navarro said Sunday that his sentiment came "right from Air Force One".

MacLauchlan said he supported the Prime Minister's retaliatory tariffs in response to USA tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum and called on opposition parties to join him in expressing support for the federal government. Donald Trump took offence to that and called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak" on Twitter for his "false statements".

Mr. Trudeau especially objected to the Trump administration's justification of the tariffs, saying Ottawa isn't a national security threat to Washington.

"We are urging all sides to resolve their differences on trade amicably", she told reporters in Canberra on Tuesday. "You can't do that", the U.S. president added.
