Canadian lawmakers unanimously accuse U.S. of attacking Trudeau

Mr. Trump called Trudeau "dishonest & weak" after Trudeau said at a news conference that Canada would retaliate for new US tariffs.

White House aide Larry Kudlow tells CNN's "State of the Union" says Trudeau has done a "great disservice" to the G-7 by saying Canada had to stand up for itself and that the USA was responsible for the problem with tariffs.

Trump arrived in Singapore on Sunday for the summit that could lay the groundwork for ending a nuclear stand-off between the old foes.

But trade policy experts say Canada's trade relationship with the U.S.is key to our domestic economy.

Merkel, whose office over the weekend released a photo of leaders and aides which illustrates the divide between Trump and his allies, said she had "tried hard to find a compromise and we fought hard for it. this was an important announcement".

It came in response to what he claimed were "false statements" by Canadian premier Justin Trudeau.

Trump fired off a volley of tweets on Monday further venting anger at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, the European Union and Trudeau. "What we have is a country here in the United States, which has the lowest tariffs in the world, lowest non-tariff barriers in the world", said Peter Navarro, a White House trade adviser, on CNN in March.

"The world as we know it, namely the USA -led rules-based multilateralism, is now in serious danger of unraveling, as illustrated at the G7 meeting", said Erik Nielsen, chief economist at Unicredit Bank.

Schinas added that EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker thanked Trudeau - who Trump called "dishonest" and "weak" on Twitter - "for the excellent preparation and chairing of this challenging summit".

Golfers, tennis players and other athletes in traditionally nonrevenue sports can transfer one time without sitting out. "This change promotes not only fairness for college athletes, but also their health and well-being", Blake said.

"We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", the statement said, which came despite Washington appearing intent on taking more punitive steps on trade.

Later on June 9, after he left the G7 summit, Trump unleashed a barrage of tweets, likely while he was aboard Air Force One on his way to Singapore for his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - "Just left the @G7 Summit in handsome Canada".

Those tensions boiled over on Saturday, with Trudeau and European leaders reaffirming plans to institute retaliatory measures and Trump lashing out in response by refusing to endorse the the G7 communique, a negotiated statement on shared priorities among the group.

Trudeau, in Quebec City for bilateral meetings with non-G7 leaders after the summit, did not comment as he arrived. "And no subsidies. I even said, 'no tariffs!'" Trump insisted.

Trump is right to assail China for unfair trade, but doing the same with our closest allies is a mistake.

"In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters", German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said when asked about Trump's U-turn.

Trump has infuriated the European Union, Canada and Mexico by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Reneging on the commitments agreed in the communique showed "incoherence and inconsistency", it said in a statement.

"We're talking to all countries", Trump said, denouncing what he said were huge existing tariffs on United States exports around the world.
