Trump agreed with the language in the communique from the summit in Canada Friday and Saturday, but took offense at criticism of US tariffs by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at his news conference after Trump left early.

"In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message", Navarro said. "I mean seriously, Russia, who took over Crimea, all the violence that's taken place in Ukraine, the poisoning of people in the United Kingdom, the influence in our election this last time period", Heyman recounted.

After the G7 summit, Trump blasted Trudeau as "dishonest & weak", and a top Trump adviser said there was a "special place in hell" for the Canadian prime minster.

Asked about Trump's tweets and the future of the G7 late Saturday during a photo op in La Malbaie, Trudeau declined to respond to several questions.

"Trudeau did not make President Trump look weak".

After Mr Trump left a tense G7 summit early, Mr Trudeau said he would answer U.S. tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminium with retaliatory tariffs against United States products next month.

Speaking to CNN today, Trump adviser Larry Kudlow says he personally negotiated with Trudeau during the two-day G7 summit in Quebec's Charlevoix region and insists the U.S. agreed to the language in the communique in good faith.

Trudeau said in a press conference that Canada will "move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1, applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that Americans have unjustly applied to us".

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Sunday that "Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries".

The only hint of a softening came when Peter Navarro, the White House economic advisor, apologized for saying there was a "special place in hell" for Trudeau.

Trump said that he watched Trudeau's press conference aboard Air Force One and was stunned.

Trump also said at his news conference that a photograph released by German Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman that went viral captured a friendlier mood than what the snapshot conveyed to many analysts.

On Monday, MPs in the House of Commons approved a motion denouncing Trump's name-calling tirade and endorsing Trudeau's decision to stand his ground against USA tariffs and tweeted presidential threats.

"From the beginning we have said that our approach would be to hope for the best, to work for the best possible outcome but always be prepared for the worst, to have a Plan B, C, D, E and F - and maybe to the end of the alphabet".

Trump gave a wide-ranging news conference in Singapore on Tuesday following his landmark summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, in which the two leaders spoke for several hours. And I say, 'Push him around?

"I would say that the level of relationships is a 10 - we have a great relationship. We just shook hands!'" Trump said Tuesday. The relationship between the two leaders appears to have soured since comments were made regarding US tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum imports.
