Former Trudeau adviser: Trump is a 'pathetic little man child'

Trump-G7 chafing, Pruitt moisturizing: Darcy cartoon G7 tensions high after 'rant' over trade

President Donald Trump's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow called comments by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the G7 summit a "diplomatic betrayal".

Trudeau "kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said.

Mr Trump had already threatened to divide the G7, made up of the US, France, UK, Italy, Germany, Japan and Canada, when he suggested Russian Federation should be allowed to rejoin the group.

"I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!", Trump tweeted Saturday evening while en route to Singapore aboard Air Force One.

In her own tweet, Green Party leader Elizabeth May says Trudeau is handling what she calls Trump's outbursts and bullying as well as anyone, and that all Canadian leaders need to support the prime minister.

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

Former FBI director James Comey subtly condemned President Donald Trump for attacking Canada, a long-time USA ally, and its prime minister, Justin Trudeau.

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

"In terms of the approach that governments choose to take, Canada does not believe that ad-hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries", Freeland told reporters in Quebec City.

At the time of the interview, the president had just landed in Singapore for his upcoming summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"These are jointly shared principles, although the pitfalls lie in the details", German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a press conference before the release of the communique.

"He must mean there are 10 things on which we totally disagree", the diplomat said.

"I personally negotiated with Prime Minister Trudeau", Mr. Kudlow said. "They have tariffs on certain dairy and food products - 290 [to] 295 percent".

"Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks", Freeland said.

At his news conference, Trudeau said Canada would take retaliatory measures next month in response to Trump's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

But, he said, the US could no longer tolerate "brutal" deals, even threatening to tear up the North American Free Trade Agreement if he didn't get his way.

Responding to Kudlow's remarks on Sunday-which came just as Trump touched down in Singapore after ducking out of the G7 summit early-Huffington Post reporter Matt Fuller wrote: "It's incredible that Larry Kudlow thinks he's helping the U.S".

Tweeting en route to his next summit in Singapore, Mr Trump said he had instructed United States officials "not to endorse the communique as we look at tariffs on automobiles".

"Very dishonest [and] weak", Trump tweeted.

"We spend two days working out a [joint] statement and commitments".

"Great meetings and relationships with the six Country Leaders especially since they know I can not allow them to apply large Tariffs and strong barriers to. United States of America".

Prior to his arrival on Friday, the president injected additional controversy by suggesting that the G-7 offer a seat at the table to Russian Federation, which was ousted from the group in 2014. "I think it will be very positive", Trump said on Friday, without giving details.
