US blames Canada for G7 fiasco, says Trudeau 'stabbed us in the back'
Nearly as an afterthought, Trump - now in Singapore for a summit with North Korean leader Kum Jong Un - tweeted: "Great to be in Singapore, excitement in the air!"
The BBC parsed the picture by identifying all nine individuals in it, including British Prime Minister Theresa May, who is barely visible, and Larry Kudlow, head of Trump's National Economic Council as well as several Japanese officials and US national security adviser John Bolton. "Kim must not see weakness". But U.S. President Donald Trump's abrupt rejection of the joint communique and angry tweets left the annual meeting in disarray.
Kudlow admitted to CNN on Sunday that Trump had "compromised on the communique" but changed his mind later, seeing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau'sappear vindicated after the summit. He complained that he had been blindsided by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's criticism of his tariff threats at a summit-ending news conference. "$800 Billion Trade Deficit ..." Navarro also said Trump attending the G7 in Canada was a "courtesy" to Trudeau and that the President had "bigger things on his plate" in Singapore. Can't do it in person. "He's a pathetic little man-child".
On June 7 - the eve of Trudeau's G7 summit - Trump sends out another missive - "Prime Minister Trudeau is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the USA and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things. but he doesn't bring up the fact that they charge us up to 300% on dairy - hurting our Farmers, killing our Agriculture!" "I have made it clear to the president that [imposing retaliatory tariffs] is not something we relish doing, but it's something that we absolutely will do".
Navarro, the Trump trade adviser, said his harsh assessment of what "bad faith" Trudeau did with "that stunt press conference" on Saturday "comes right from Air Force One".
But unity was torn apart when the U.S. president took exception to Mr Trudeau calling United States policy "insulting". He did him a favor and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique. "It is a betrayal", he said.
Merkel's comment was one of two nods to Trump during her hourlong ARD interview after her return from the G-7. "All Canadians stand united against these inflammatory attacks on our government officials", he said. "We will stand shoulder to shoulder with the Prime Minister and the people of Canada", Ford wrote.
Kudlow said Trump won't let a Canadian prime minister push him around on the eve of his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump", Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro said on Fox News this weekend, following the G7 summit in Quebec. "We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies, ' it said".
The details of the conversation, which Axios previously reported, come amid fears of a looming trade war over the Trump administration's move to impose steep tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada and Mexico.
Germany and France are also standing by the jointly agreed communique.
He also said relationships with his G7 partners were a "10" before he left.
In London, Mayor Sadiq Khan said he hopes Trump will reconsider his trade policies.
"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on Trade anymore".
