Trump pulls out of joint G7 statement, calls Trudeau 'weak'

The Latest: Merkel finds Trump's action sobering, depressing US blames Canada for G7 fiasco, says Trudeau 'stabbed us in the back'

In the air by then, Trump tweeted: "Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!"

In his summit statement, Trudeau called USA tariffs imposed on Canadian steel and aluminum imports "insulting" - a word he had used several times in the last two weeks to describe the American premise that Canada poses a national security threat to the U.S.

Saturday, Trump summit pulled the USA endorsement of the summit communique - a joint statement that was signed by all the other G7 participants: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom.

The reason? Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau defended his country against tariffs put into place by President Donald Trump.

Saturday's picture was not the first awkward moment between Trump and Merkel, who makes no secret of her disagreement with the American leader's approach on trade, his rejection of the deal to limit Iran's nuclear program and his decision to take the United States out of the global Paris deal to fight climate change.

The remarks apparently upset Trump, who had left the conference early to travel to Singapore for a highly anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

So there you have it. Justin Trudeau's eyebrows are just fine, thanks.

"The president will continue to say what he says", he said of Trump. Trudeau pulled a "sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption" that amounted to "a betrayal", said Kudlow, who appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" and CBS' "Face the Nation". "He is a thug using Soviet-style aggression to wage a shadow war against America, and our leaders should act like it", Sasse said.

"Here's the thing", Kudlow said, "he really kind of stabbed us in the back".

"Others too followed suit, referencing President Trump's Saturday night twitter attack on Trudeau Another twitter user said, 'Justin Trudeau's eyebrows just stole my whiskey and drove off in my auto".

The tweetstorm is the latest fallout from a bad-tempered G7 summit in Quebec, Canada, in which the President found himself at odds with numerous leaders present, largely over his planned tariffs on a range of goods, including steel and aluminum. And much is being made of a photograph showing Trump and Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe with their arms crossed as German chancellor Angela Merkel and French president Emmanuel Macron lean on a table between them and Trump, seemingly trying to convince him of something.

Trump agreed to a statement on trade but withdrew from it later. Still, numerous Canadian officials, including Trudeau's spokesperson, noted that he said nothing new or anything that hadn't been discussed with Trump in private. "We stand by it and whoever leaves it and turns their back on it is showing inconsistency and lack of character". "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

Some 75 per cent of Canadian exports go to the United States, making Canada uniquely vulnerable to a USA trade war.

Europe's answer must be to stick even closer together, defend its interests and strengthen alliances with countries such as Japan and Canada, Mr Maas said.
