US, Canada, European countries caught up in growing G7 rift over tariffs

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May told MPs that the G7 had been

The G7 summit came after the Trump administration decided last week to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada and Mexico, which has drawn strong opposition from US business community and quick retaliation from major USA trading partners.

President Donald Trump's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow and his trade adviser Peter Navarro blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday for "betraying" the United States and engaging in "bad faith diplomacy" at this week's fractious G7 summit.

Meanwhile, Kudlow, speaking the "Face the Nation" on Sunday, said that Trudeau "should've known better."

Trump also renewed attacks on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who had hosted the G7 meeting in Quebec.

"Not only was Trump reluctant to go to the G7, but he also came with demands that include bringing Russian Federation back into the G7, which was nearly in itself a provocation.

You heard the president even make announcements there that our goal was to have no tariffs and no barriers, but I think that there was offense taken that once airborne on your way to an incredibly important global summit that the prime minister of Canada chose to take to the podium to condemn the actions of the United States", he continued.

Trudeau said he had reiterated to Mr. Trump, who left the G7 meeting before it ended, that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the U.S.

"The NDP stands in solidarity with the government and the prime minister against these provocative words from the American administration", said NDP House Leader Ruth Ellen Brosseau.

Kudlow, in a separate TV appearance, said Trudeau was "polarizing" and "really kind of stabbed us in the back".

"I've never seen language like this". He says that we are the problem with tariffs. "He is a thug using Soviet-style aggression to wage a shadow war against America, and our leaders should act like it", Sasse said. "Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%", he wrote in the first of five tweets relating to the weekend's summit.

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

Following the remarks by Kudlow and Navarro, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland is far less confrontational in an effort, perhaps, to dial things down - "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".

Have you ever heard in your life a bigger load of crap from an American trade official?

While making no direct criticism of Mr Trump, Mrs May told MPs: "This was a hard summit with, at times, some very candid discussions, but the conclusion I draw is that it is only through continued dialogue that we can find ways to work together to resolve the challenges we face". He reiterated his longstanding view that the USA has been taken advantage of in global trade, adding, "We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing, and that ends".

G7 allies seemed as perplexed as Canada at the sudden diplomatic row, and Germany and France accused Mr Trump of destroying trust and acting inconsistently.
