Trudeau 'stabbed us in back' on trade, says Trump chief economic adviser

Minutes after the publication on Saturday of the joint communique that was approved by all the leaders in the G7 bloc - US, France, Germany, Japan, Britain, Italy and Canada - Trump announced on Twitter that he was retracting his support.

A tardy Donald Trump created a distraction this morning when he showed up late for a G7 meeting on women's empowerment.

Peter Navarro lit into Canadian Prime Minister, accusing him of acting in 'bad faith'.

It's a startling attack on the leader of the US neighbor and ally. - "Let's be clear: These tariffs are totally unacceptable..."

"To our allies: bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free trade, pro-globalization & supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values", McCain tweeted.

"We have to keep a cool head now and draw the right conclusions", Maas said. And, overall, the US has an $8.4 billion surplus with Canada.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he said. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.

At a rare solo news conference before heading to Asia, Trump said he pressed for the G-7 countries to eliminate all tariffs, trade barriers and subsidies in their trading practices.

Trudeau didn't respond to questions about Mr. Trump when the prime minister arrived at a Quebec City hotel Sunday for meetings with other world leaders, though Freeland later told reporters that "we don't think that's a useful or productive way to do business".

Health officials link pre-cut melon to salmonella outbreak in MI

Barca star in middle of Israel-Palestinian spat
Rajoub told journalists he had written to Argentina's government asking that Messi not take part in the June 9 friendly. A statement from the Embassy of Israel in Argentina detailed some of the issues behind the decision.

The EU has "a $151 billion surplus" which it should use to fund "military", said Trump Monday, referencing what Trump believes is the US' outsized financial contribution to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. "Look forward to seeing them tomorrow". They didn't tell you that, did they?

"He's not going to tolerate that, nor should he", Graham said on Fox News.

The summit came in the wake of Trump announcing steel and aluminum tariffs on US allies.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's ill-fated press conference, where he vowed to retaliate to the tariffs imposed by the United States on steel and aluminum, seems to have opened a can of worms, as less than 24 hours before his historic meeting with Kim Jong Un, the United States leader continues to be preoccupied with imbalances in trade and "dishonest" Trudeau. 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. "I understand the president was upset".

Trump's stinging critique - while technically accurate - obscures the larger trade relationship between the two countries.

British Prime Minister Theresa May, who also attended the G7 summit in Canada, stood with Trudeau on the issue of trade.

The director of the national economic council under the Trump administration, Larry Kudlow, said during a CNN interview that Justin Trudeau stabbed the the with his comments during a press conference held after U.S. President Donald Trump left the summit.

Less than 24 hours before his meeting with Kim, Trump found time to lambast what he sees as unfair trade practices among the other six industrialized democracies at the summit. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

"He made an error", Kudlow said on CNN's "State of the Union".

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