After 'difficult' G7 summit, UK's May warns against unilateral action on trade

Kudlow, the conservative economist who directs the National Economic Council, was upset with Trudeau's comments at a press conference after the contentious Group of 7 summit in Quebec.

Having left the G7 summit in Canada early, Trump's announcement on Twitter that he was backing out of the joint communique torpedoed what appeared to be a fragile consensus on a trade dispute between Washington and its top allies.

President Donald Trump left leaders at G7 Summit angry after he refused to sign the joint statement of world leaders, and accused the European Union for treating the U.S. as its own "piggy bank".

The president ruffled feathers at the G7 summit, not backing down from stiff tariffs on aluminum and steel imports.

"They should have said to him, 'God speed, you are negotiating with the insane nuclear tyrant in North Korea, and we are behind you, '" Kudlow added.

"He did a great disservice to the whole G7".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, late Sunday, called Trump's revocation of support for the G7 joint communique "sobering and a little depressing", while adding, in a rare one-on-one interview with ARD public television, "but that's not the end" of the Group of Seven.

As Trump flew from the summit with USA allies to a planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, he lashed out at Trudeau for what he said were his "false statements" at a news conference and said the US would not endorse the G7 communique, a negotiated statement on shared priorities among the group.

Trump has slapped import tariffs on metals, saying he has to protect American jobs against what he says is unfair competition. "We must put the American worker first!" he later wrote.

"Canadians - we're polite, we're reasonable - but we also will not be pushed around".

Trump, who is in Singapore for meetings with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, tweeted that "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal" and suggested that Canada is "bragging" in an unspecified release about benefiting from United States trade.

"[Trudeau] went out of his way to try to downplay tensions", said White House reporter Michael Shear.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland had responded to the White House comments by saying that Canada will retaliate to U.S. tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way and that Canada will always be willing to talk.

Hayden added that the display reminded him of Sean Spicer lying about crowd sizes in a press briefing after Trump's inauguration: "He did it for personal survival", Hayden said. "He is a thug using Soviet-style aggression to wage a shadow war against America, and our leaders should act like it", Sasse said.

"We would hope that the USA will similarly honour the commitments that they have made", he said, speaking before a parliamentary statement on the summit by Prime Minister Theresa May.

But two sources with direct knowledge of the situation told CBC News that Canada has heard this kind of positive rhetoric from Trump before - without seeing results at the NAFTA negotiating table.
