The European Union on Monday backed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after US President Donald Trump branded him "dishonest" and "weak" following a Group of Seven summit of leaders.

But before the group could sign off on a joint statement of agreement on trade talks, Trump's advisers reportedly insisted that the US would not agree to two key points in the statement related to the environment.

In tweets, Trump insulted Trudeau as "dishonest" and "weak".

And Roland Paris, a former foreign policy adviser to Mr Trudeau, jabbed at Mr Trump on Twitter: "Big tough guy once he's back on his airplane".

Tensions between Canada and USA leaders ran high even before the weekend's G7 summit that was held primarily in Charlevoix, Que. "Let us be serious and worthy of our people", Macron's office said in a statement obtained by Le Monde.

David Akin wonders if Canada and its G7 allies can trust the U.S.?

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Navarro said.

Mr Trudeau has vowed retaliatory action next month over USA tariffs on steel and aluminium.

Two Trump advisers have used television interviews to attack Trudeau following the summit.

"We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", the G-7 nations said in their joint communique issued at the conclusion of the two-day summit in Canada.

"I'm very confident that relationships between our countries, the United States and those G-7 countries, will continue to move forward on a strong basis", Mr. Pompeo told reporters, speaking in advance of Mr. Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore. He really kind of stabbed us in the back.

Mr. Trump addressed the subject of worldwide trade during an impromptu news conference at the summit on Saturday, saying that he does not want to see other countries take advantage of the U.S. over trade.

However, despite Trump's heated rhetoric, the U.S. ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, has expressed confidence that the trade conflict can be settled, but said it would take some time. Trump's chief economic adviser said the United States pulled out of supporting the communique because the president was enraged by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

US President Donald Trump in a tweet on Sunday announced that he has directed US representatives to not sign the G7 Communiqué after Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's press conference vowing that Canada won't be "pushed around" by the US.

"Justin Trudeau's left eyebrow detached after meeting Trump - so what? Not fair to our farmers!" "Well, the in-factual, the non-factual part of this was they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said.
