Trump withdraws endorsement of G7 joint statement, slams 'weak' Trudeau

In the week leading up to the the G-7 Summit President Trump engaged in the most Trumpian sort of diplomacy: he very publicly attacked out closest allies.

On CTV's Question Period Sunday morning, Former premier of Quebec and deputy prime minister Jean Charest said Canada has to prepare for Trump to act, because as seen with the levelling of steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada, "he tends to follow through on the threats he makes".

Yet the US President and his aides have lashed the leader of America's neighbour, longtime ally, Five Eyes member and G7 Summit host with language usually reserved for rogue nations just before the bombs begin to fall.

Kudlow adds that Trudeau's press conference was indignant and seemed to claim it was an attempt to undermine President Trump's historic summit with Kim Jong un in three days.

French President Emmanuel Macron hit back at President Donald Trump after he refused to endorse a joint communique by the G7 nations. "Well, the in-factual, the non-factual part of this was they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270 percent on dairy!" the U.S. president tweeted.

He accused him of "sophomoric play" for insulting the United States during his press conference.

Kudlow, who was in Canada with President Trump for the G-7 meeting, told CNN on Sunday that the US had come to an agreement with the other highly-industrialized nations in the group on a joint communique until Trudeau's "sophomoric play".

President Trump's chief economic adviser called comments made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "polarizing" and said the Canadian leader "stabbed us in the back".

Last year, Tyson recalled about 2.5 million pounds of ready-to-eat breaded chicken "due to misbranding and undeclared allergens". The department's Food Safety and Inspection Service said some of the products may be at food service institutions.

On Twitter, Mr. Trump called his remarks "very dishonest and weak", citing Canada's imposition of tariffs on dairy products.

Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday, Kudlow characterized Trudeau's post-G7 news conference, in which he promised to "move forward with retaliatory measures" to counter USA tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico, as a "betrayal".

Trudeau, in Quebec City for bilateral meetings with non-G7 leaders after the summit, did not comment as he arrived.

Justin Trudeau and President Trump participate in the working session at the G7 summit on Friday.

Kudlow said, Trump doesn't want "any show of weakness", any publicly-stated attempt to "push him around" beforehand. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.

"I think she is outlining Canada's actual position and is outlining actual steps that have been taken and are being taken", he told Xinhua in an interview.

"It would be with regret but it would be with absolute certainty and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1 applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applies to us", Trudeau said at a press conference closing the summit.
