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

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

Internationally, one European diplomat says the rest of the G7 will carry on despite the president's online attack against Trudeau and his decision to pull out of the final G7 communique.

The comments come in the midst of Trump's ongoing trade war with allied nations.

But Trudeau pointed to firm commitments from some members of the G7 to promote cleaner oceans and fund better access to education for girls in poor countries.

If not, can someone explain what the public is seeing in this video?

The president slammed Trudeau via Twitter on Saturday, calling out his counterpart for acting "meek and mild".

What do YOU think? That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did. Take the WND Poll!

In a tense interview today with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union", Trump's economic advisor Larry Kudlow lambasted Trudeau.

Kudlow said the USA participated in G7 talks and bilateral talks on Nafta in good faith and that Trump had been "charming".

Kudlow was speaking following the G7 summit in Canada on Saturday.

After President Trump left, from Air Force One, he rage-tweeted an attack on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and announced the USA was revoking its agreement to accept the joint statement of the G-7 members.

At a news conference to close the summit of world leaders in Canada, Mr Trudeau said the people of his country would see the USA president's line on trade as "an insult" after a long history of cooperation between the countries. "This G7 meeting is in some ways unprecedented - we've never not signed a communique", he added.

"We had extremely productive discussions on the need to have fair and reciprocal" trade, he said. "He did a great disservice to the whole G7", Kudlow said.

Kudlow says Trudeau's actions were a "sophomoric play" and says the prime minister stabbed his United States allies in the back, which he argues did a great disservice to the whole G7. He also said that because of Trudeau's comments, he instructed USA trade representatives to not sign the communique the G-7 leaders had agreed upon expressing the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade". "Very dishonest & weak", he said of Trudeau.

Navarro added that while these were his own words, they reflected the "the sentiment that was on Air Force One".

Mr Trudeau did not immediately respond, but his office said on Saturday after Mr Trump withdrew support for the communique that the Prime Minister had not said anything in his closing news conference he has not said to Mr Trump before. He did him a favor and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique.

"He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea", Kudlow said.

Trump on Sunday arrived in Singapore, where he and Kim are to meet Tuesday to discuss that nation's nuclear arsenal.

As America distanced itself from its allies while attempting to pick a genuine fight with its placid neighbor to the north, a dumbfounded rest of the world reacted - and a couple of Republicans weighed in, too. So, I ask you: "He gets up in the airplane and leaves, and then Trudeau starts blasting him at a domestic news conference?"
