In bombshell, Trump says USA backs out of G7 communique, criticises Trudeau

Peter Navarro, a trade adviser to President Donald Trump, escalated the White House's rebuke of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, calling him weak and dishonest on Sunday.

Trump, in a Twitter tirade on Thursday, pointed fingers at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French president Emmanuel Macron, stating that "they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

When Mr Trump's tweets withdrawing support from the G7 statement hit on Sunday, the Prime Minister's office said Mr Trudeau had not said anything in his closing news conference he has not said to the US President before.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had told reporters that "Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around" over Trump's decision to invoke national security to justify United States tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.

After Mr. Trump's departure from the G-7, Mr. Trudeau held a press conference Saturday stating that all of the member nations, including the USA, had signed a communique pledging to lower tariffs and other trade barriers.

"He really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said.

The outburst against Trudeau, and by association the other G7 members, is only the latest incident in which Trump has clashed with America's closest allies, even as he has had warm words for autocrats like Kim and Russia's Vladimir Putin.

US President Donald Trump will be leaving early from the summit with the leaders of the G7 countries after an unfruitful debate on trade tariffs. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did".

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", he wrote in one tweet that then went on to accuse Canada of imposing unfair taxes on United States dairy products.

Trudeau later said he reiterated to Trump that tariffs will harm industries and workers on both sides of the U.S.

It was the fourth year in a row the Warriors and Cavaliers met in the finals, Golden State winning in 2015 and the past two years. But it was Warriors forward Kevin Durant who was named the finals' Most Valuable Player for the second consecutive year.


Although Trump said the trade talk was "not contentious", his comments come amid a tense few days with multiple world leaders over Trump's decision to impose steel and aluminum tariffs on the country's biggest trading partners: Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

Despite Trump's comments, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday that Moscow was perfectly happy working with the larger G20 and had "never asked anyone to return" to the Group of Seven.

Trudeau, who announced that the G7 had issued a joint communique, had to suffer the wrath of Trump.

He added that Trump "is not going to let a Canadian prime minister push him around ... on the eve of this - he is not going to permit any show of weakness on a trip to negotiate with North Korea".

Trump criticizing the Group of Seven nations host and stepped back from the generally positive tone that had ended the two-day meeting in Quebec.

The group of seven nations that make up the G7 are Canada, France, the U.S., the UK, Germany, Japan and Italy.

At the G7 summit, Trump has said he wants to put an end to the United States' status as the world's "piggy bank" and suggested eliminating trade barriers between allies.

"We need to stand with our democratic allies", Feinstein said.

Kudlow says Trudeau's actions were a "sophomoric play" and says the prime minister stabbed his U.S. allies in the back, which he argues did a great disservice to the whole G7.
