White House Economic Adviser: Canada's Trudeau 'Stabbed Us In The Back'

Trump-G7 chafing, Pruitt moisturizing: Darcy cartoon G7 tensions high after 'rant' over trade

The top White House economic adviser accused Canada's prime minister on Sunday of betraying Trump with "polarising" statements on US trade policy that risked undermining the American leader on the eve of a historic summit with North Korea.

Kudlow doubled down on blaming Trudeau in an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation" later Sunday morning when he said the prime minister "picked a fight" and left Trump no choice but to pull out of the group's communique.

The announcement and Trump's planned tariffs have also put him on a collision course with Trudeau, leader of another key USA ally. "He did a whole disservice to the whole G-7".

The G7 is made up of Canada, France, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan and Italy.

Mr Trudeau's office responded by saying the prime minister had said nothing he had not said before, both in public and in private conversations with Mr Trump.

He was reacting to Trudeau's declaration that Canadians would "not be pushed around" and would hit back at punishing United States tariffs on metal imports with "equivalent tariffs".

"Well, he holds a press conference and he says the U.S.is insulting".

But Trump said that the notion that the G7 summit was in any way contentious was "fake news", telling reporters Saturday that the conference had been "so wonderful".

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

In an interview with CNN, Mr Bornstein said the 2015 letter suggesting that Trump would be the "healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency" was not his professional assessment. The United States pays enormous tariffs on dairy.

U.S. President Donald Trump angered his G7 allies last week by slapping them with hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum - a move that prompted Canada and the European Union to threaten duties of their own.

Leaders of the G7 nations on Saturday papered over the cracks in their alliance at a summit in Canada but came away with little more than an agreement to disagree on trade, as U.S. President Donald Trump defiantly brandished his "America First" agenda.

Mr. Trump said on Saturday that he had told the G7 leaders that the USA required fair access to markets and an end to unfair trade practices.

Having left the G7 summit in Canada early, Trump's announcement on Twitter that he was backing out of the joint communique torpedoed what appeared to be a fragile consensus on a trade dispute between Washington and its top allies. "All Justin Trudeau had to do was take the win".

Those were fighting words for Trump, who accused Trudeau of "false statements" and of being "very dishonest & weak".

French President Emmanuel Macron, who among all European leaders arguably enjoys the strongest personal rapport with Trump, did not hesitate to voice his disappointment and displeasure at several moments the summit. He told CNN's Jake Tapper that "of course" Trump's tweets about Trudeau actually had to do with North Korea "in large part".

"President Trump saw that he had a united front before him", Macron said via Twitter.

"And as far as this retaliation goes, the American press needs to do a much better job of what the Canadians are getting ready to do because it's nothing short of an attack on our political system and it's nothing short of Canada trying to raise its high protectionist barriers even higher on things like maple syrup and other goods", Navarro said.
