Canadian lawmakers unanimously accuse USA of attacking Trudeau

President Donald Trump said that his recent feud with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau would "cost a lot of money for the people of Canada".

IT WOULD BE so easy to blame Justin Trudeau for the blow-up of the G7 economic conference, to say it's all his fault that everything fell apart after Donald Trump jumped on an airplane to Singapore.

"And that's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said during a Fox News interview Sunday.

Asked about Navarro's comments, Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said, according to reporter Daniel Dale, "Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks".

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". Economic chief Larry Kudlow told CNN that Mr. Trump was getting "pushed around" by Mr. Trudeau, and that the Prime Minister was making the President look weak before his meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

The comments, made after Trump had left to go to Singapore for his much-anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, infuriated the US president.

"We have done just that at this summit, registering our deep disappointment at the unjustified decision by the U.S. to apply tariffs to European Union steel and aluminium imports".

A Trump adviser had suggested Sunday that Trump saw Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before the meeting with Kim. It came in sharp contrast to a roar of disapproval among Canadian politicians, who banded together across party lines to denounce Trump's attack and praise the bilateral and trading relationship between the two neighbors.

"I have made it very clear to the President that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do. That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did", said Navarro, referring to the joint press conference that is routinely held at the end of the annual events.

"Looking forward to straightening out unfair Trade Deals with the G-7 countries", Trump wrote on Twitter early Friday morning.

Trump wouldn't discuss the reasons why Russian Federation was expelled from the group in 2014, specifically because of its annexation of the Ukrainian territory of Crimea, but blamed his predecessor, Barack Obama, for allowing it to happen, and said he would have done things very differently.

But Mr Trudeau's comments provoked a response from the U.S. president.

Despite the tension between Trump, Europe and Canada, the president has emphasized what he has described as strong relations.

G7 allies seemed as perplexed as Canada at the sudden diplomatic row, and Germany and France accused Mr Trump of destroying trust and acting inconsistently. Among other things, she said the government should be preparing to keep pace with corporate tax cuts and tax breaks south of the border.
