A look at the events leading up to Canada vs. USA battle

The Latest: Merkel finds Trump's action sobering, depressing

Just minutes after a joint G7 communique was published Saturday in summit host city Quebec, President Donald Trump launched a Twitter broadside, taking exception to comments made by Trudeau at a news conference and saying he had instructed United States representatives not to endorse the joint communique.

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.

Trump is scheduled to meet Tuesday with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un just days after ruffling feathers at the G7 summit in Canada and engaging in a public spat with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a move that even a handful of lawmakers in the President's own party are questioning.

Trade adviser Peter Navarro told "Fox News Sunday" that "there is a special place in hell for any leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy" with Trump.

"The New York Times notes that in a press conference Saturday afternoon, ".Mr. Trudeau said the seven nations had reached broad agreements on a range of economic and foreign policy goals.

What did Kudlow say?

Trump and Trudeau have been at odds ever since the United States announced in late May that Canada will no longer be exempt from steel and aluminum tariffs, a decision that Trudeau described as "totally unacceptable". He really kind of stabbed us in the back.

Kudlow also accused Trudeau of going "rogue" and "pouring collateral damage on this whole Korean trip".

Trudeau and the rest of the G-7 failed to seize on Trump's proposal.

The President ripped Trudeau on twitter over his "false statements" to the press; adding that he instructed his administration "not to endorse" a joint statement from the G7 countries following the contentious summit.

A media statement by one of Trump's top White House advisers that there was a "special place in hell" for Trudeau also had a former USA ambassador to Canada demanding an apology.

But then Trump pulled out of a joint statement while citing "false statements" by Canada's prime minister, Justin Trudeau.

"I have made it clear to [President Trump] that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said.

Economists and trade analysts note that the rules of world trade aren't as one-sided as the president argues. Trump was said to have lobbied hard to have Vladimir Putin's position within the "G8 summit" restored.


"We are, by-and-large, integrated because we have common values and common legal systems and common strategic objectives", he said.

The communique was supposed to illustrate shared ground between the US, Germany, the UK, Canada, France, Italy and Japan following Mr Trump's imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.

"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.

There were two crucial points that didn't satisfy the United States delegation, the Canadian media points out. The G7 meeting in La Malbaie, Que., which was hosted by Trudeau, marked Trump's first visit to Canada as president.

The verbal volleys by Navarro and Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, picked up where Trump had left off Saturday evening.

According to a report by CTV, she said that Canada is "very measured" and that the country's officials "use fact-based arguments" to drive home a point.

President Donald Trump's top economic adviser says Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "really kind of stabbed us in the back" when Trudeau said at the end of the Group of Seven summit that Canada wouldn't be pushed around by the USA and its trade tariffs.
