Trump's attacks against Trudeau unanimously condemned by Canadian lawmakers

President Donald Trump is still angry at Justin Trudeau for a perceived slight during a speech by the Canadian Prime Minister following the G-7 meeting.

Donald Trump's trade adviser has labelled Canadian premier Justin Trudeau a back-stabber unworthy of the U.S. president's time after the acrimonious end to the G7 summit.

"In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message", Navarro said at a Tuesday conference in Washington hosted by the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg reported.

The president said that Canada, Mexico and the European Union have taken advantage of an worldwide trading system, benefiting from low US tariffs while imposing high trade barriers of their own.

Over on CNN, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow repeated that Trudeau "stabbed us in the back" and insisted he apologize for his "betrayal".

To hear Donald Trump tell it, Justin Trudeau got too pushy in the G7 news conference he gave after the U.S. President flew away because he "probably doesn't know Air Force One has about 20 televisions".

We have very little use for Trudeau, that avatar of chic progressivism, or for Trump's other foil, Angela Merkel, the very embodiment of the short-sighted and high-handed European establishment.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has paid tribute to Canadian PM Justin Trudeau's leadership after a G7 summit which she described as "difficult".

Earlier today, Trudeau cheered Trump's bid to broker a deal to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons, but he stayed mum on the US administration's persistent trash talk.

In response to the massive steel and aluminium tariffs imposed by the Trump administration, Canada which is one of the largest exporters of the same spoke out against the exorbitant duties.

He did not specify which of Trudeau's statements he considered false.

Scaramucci went on to say that Trump has great respect for Trudeau, likes him personally and thinks he is an effective leader - and that Canadians shouldn't read too much into Trump's personal attacks.

Chris Coons, a Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations, told MSNBC Trump had welcomed authoritarian leaders in other countries even as he "picks fights as he just did at the G7 with our longest, oldest closest allies: democracies, developed Western countries like Canada".

At the same time, Easter said, business owners were expressing support for the Trudeau government in trying to de-escalate what has become a trade war.

"But here's what the story is: We have been taken advantage of as a country for decades by friends and enemies both", Trump said.

For his part, Trudeau cheered Trump's bid to broker a deal to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons, but he stayed mum on the president's persistent trash talk. Canada and Mexico are also taking action.

Francis agreed that "the trade deficit thing is nonsense, because we get the benefit of that", but made an appeal for bringing all tariffs down. Trump wrote in another post on Twitter. Sucking up to Russian President Vladimir Putin while hippie-punching Trudeau doesn't make Trump himself look stronger, either.
