President Trump Withdraws Support For G-7 Joint Statement Following Remarks From Trudeau

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.

Mr Trump's salvo capped a rollecoaster two days of controversies that began with his suggestion Russian Federation be readmitted to the G7, then what a French official described as a "rant" full of "recriminations" against U.S. trading partners, followed by a denial of any tensions with leaders at the summit and his description of their relationship as a "10". "And I think that's what the prime minister did today", said Jaime Watt, a Toronto-based conservative political strategist.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

When pressed on how exactly Trudeau may have betrayed the US, Kudlow revealed that the White House was interpreting Trudeau's comments as a stunt created to threaten Trump's much-anticipated upcoming meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un this week.

Throughout the summit, photographers captured photos of the tension between Trump and other world leaders.

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. Trump tweeted, referring to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

W.H. trade adviser Peter Navarro: "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with Pres. Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out. that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did".

Shortly after Mr. Trudeau said that he was "happy to announce that we have released a joint communique by all seven countries" indicating that the USA was also included, Mr. Trump announced that Washington would reverse its decision and not sign the statement. "Canadians are polite, we are reasonable, but we will also not be pushed around".

Navarro was referring to the prime minister's announcing after the Group of Seven meeting Saturday that Canada will "not be pushed around" by the USA with its decision to slap tariffs on some imports from Canada and other countries.

Trump responded to Trudeau's comments, tweeting the United States would not endorse the joint communique from the G7 Summit and accusing Trudeau of making "false statements" about their talks.

French President Emmanuel Macron said global co-operation could not be "dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks". "He didn't attack [President Trump] in any way, other than restate Canada would retaliate for tariffs".

On Sunday, Trudeau ignored the barbs from Trump's advisors, tweeting a link to the G7 communique and hailing the "historic and important agreement we all reached".

"That's what matters", he wrote.

French President Emmanuel Macron's office reacted Sunday by saying that "international cooperation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks". "He should pull back on his statements, and wish President Trump well in the Korean negotiations".

These remarks forced Trump to retract the joint statement. "And that comes right from Air Force One". According to Independent, the joint communique stated that the G7 nations need to evaluate worldwide trade rules and develop new ones, if necessary, going forward to ensure an equal trading playing field.

"We are convinced that a modernisation is perfectly possible, we are convinced that common sense will triumph", she said.

"The only way we can move forward is (to) say very clearly that these tariffs don't work for us".
