White House Economic Adviser: Canada's Trudeau 'Stabbed Us In The Back'
G7 tensions high after 'rant' over trade
10 June, 2018, 22:49
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".
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.

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.

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