Trump's top economic aide on Trudeau: 'It was a betrayal'

President Trump is greeted by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the official welcome of a G-7 summit Friday in Quebec. The summit comes as the U.S. is clashing with Canada and other big trading partners over tariffs Trump's top economic aide on Trudeau: 'It was a betrayal'

Trump has pointed to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's criticism of him as a reason for withdrawing from the consensus statement.

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

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Twitter Saturday sought to counter the comments about Trudeau.

What do YOU think?

Trump and the White House are upset that Trudeau told reporters that Canada would stand firm when it came to new USA tariffs and "not be pushed around".

The two leaders are affirming their strong support for world institutions today after discussions on how to handle Trump at the G7.

Trudeau also stated that Canada would retaliate in response to Trump's move to impose punishing tariffs on aluminum and steel goods from Canada, the European Union and Canada.

Mr Trudeau said he had reiterated to Mr Trump, who left the G7 meeting before it ended, that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the US-Canada border.

Freeland said of the USA tariffs, "The national security pretext is absurd and frankly insulting to Canadians, the closest and strongest ally the United States has had".

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", said Trump, who flew from Canada to Singapore on Sunday to prepare for the first-ever summit between a US and North Korean leader.

France has warned that "fits of anger" can not not dictate worldwide cooperation after US President Donald Trump abruptly rejected a previously agreed joint statement in the wake of a fractious Group of Seven (G7) summit in Canada. He described Trudeau's news conference as "sophomoric" and a "political stunt".

"Very disappointing and childish and unprofessional behavior [from Trudeau]", Gorka said while on Fox & Friends on Monday.

When asked if the president shares his views, Navarro said that the sentiment came from "Air Force One".

After some intense discussion, Justin Trudeau was desperately trying to hammer out a Communique proclaiming the G7 a success with some common ground.

"He did him a favor", Navarro said.

Navarro calls that a "socialist communique" that Trump pulled out of.

He added that Trump "is not going to let a Canadian prime minister push him around ... on the eve of this - he is not going to permit any show of weakness on a trip to negotiate with North Korea". He also said that the North American Free Trade Agreement could either be renegotiated, split up into separate trade deals, or the USA could pull out entirely.

"Of course it was, in large part, " Kudlow said.

President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau engaged in a war of words after the G7 summit. If it is fake, I have little hope for Canada while he is in charge.
