Canadian lawmakers unanimously accuse USA of attacking Trudeau

The G7 Summit runs from 8 to 9 June in Charlevoix Canada

Donald's Trump's chief economic adviser said the USA pulled out of a G7 communique because the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, "stabbed us in the back" and accused the leader of one America's most important allies of playing a "sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption".

He called Mr Trudeau "dishonest & weak" after Mr Trudeau said at a news conference that Canada would retaliate for new U.S. tariffs.

Last month, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced his government would retaliate against Trump's tariffs by imposing import taxes on $12.8 billion worth of USA imports in what Canada says its strongest trade action since the World War II.

Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, suggested that Trump saw Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before the summit with Kim.

Trump's latest twitter tirade came after he arrived in Singapore for his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong-un. He also attacked Trudeau's character, calling the Liberal Party leader meek, weak and dishonest.

But Trump's shots at Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau and his general churlishness served no useful end.

"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", Peter Navarro said.

Trump advisers also took up the attack in appearances on Sunday's news shows, leveling more withering and unprecedented criticism against Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time.

In a separate tweet Wednesday, Trump addressed the issue, saying that the US would "save a fortune" by not holding the "war games".

"We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", the statement said, which came despite Washington appearing intent on taking more punitive steps on trade.

"So long as the United States government persists on its present course where the instinct is to undo anything that is already there", said Sebastian Mallaby, senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, in a phone call with reporters ahead of the weekend summit.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he said.

McKenna commended Trudeau for refraining from personal attacks on the president and sticking to the substance of the trade disagreement.

On board Air Force One, an AFP reporter was told that Trump had approved the agreement, only to be told later of the tweets.

The report claims, according to press sources, both Canada and Mexico have dismissed the idea of bilateral deals, as have several key U.S. lawmakers. "The European Union is brutal to the United States".

The Trump-Trudeau scuffle represents a pivot away from the once-friendly relationship between the two leaders.

Mr Trump has infuriated the European Union, Canada and Mexico by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.
