White House Economic Adviser: Canada's Trudeau 'Stabbed Us In The Back'

Trump said that Trudeau was "meek and mild" during the G7 meeting.

Bashing the leader of one of America's venerable allies, the White House escalated its trade tirade and leveled more withering and unprecedented criticism Sunday against Canada's prime minister, branding Justin Trudeau a back-stabber unworthy of President Donald Trump's time.

Trudeau told reporters that Canada would move forward on July 1 with retaliatory tariffs to answer for Trump's tariffs on aluminum and steel that were "unjustly applied to us".

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (R) meets with US President Donald Trump during the G7 Summit in the Charlevoix town of La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada on June 8, 2018.

Fellow G7 members responded harshly to President Donald Trump's refusal to sign a previously agreed-upon joint statement authored by all seven nations at a summit this weekend, with Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland on Sunday pointedly condemning Trump and his advisers' "ad hominem attacks".

Trade adviser Peter Navarro told "Fox News Sunday" that "there is a special place in hell for any leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy" with Trump. "We make commitments and keep them", the presidency said, adding that "France and Europe maintain their support for this statement".

Photos that have gone viral show how Macron turned part of Trump's hand pale with a blood-squeezing grip when they met Friday on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Canada.

The eight-page statement also included joint commitments to ensure that Iran will "never seek, develop or acquire a nuclear weapon" as well as demands for Russian Federation to stop undermining Western democracies.

Kudlow, in a separate TV appearance, said Trudeau was "polarizing" and "really kind of stabbed us in the back".

In Berlin, German Foreign minister Heiko Maas said Mr Trump's opposition to the G7 communique was "not a real surprise" given his record, including ending America's support for an global deal on Iran.

The accusation came "right from Air Force One", said Navarro, as Trump was flying to Singapore for a historic summit with the dictator of North Korea.

Trump tweeted his reversal after what he called "false statements" by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who he labeled "dishonest and weak".

The letter, which comes after Trump imposed hefty aluminium and steel tariffs on the European Union and other trade allies, focuses on the trade and investment relationship between the European Union and the United States - a relationship which, the ambassadors say, "other countries can only dream of". A senior administration official told the reporter that Trump had been angered by Trudeau's comments. We're going to stand united. "We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies".
