White House economic advisor says Justin Trudeau ‘stabbed us in the back’

President Trump "is not going to let a Canadian Prime Minister push him around - push him, POTUS, President Trump, around - on the eve of this" North Korean Summit, Kudlow announced. "Divisive rhetoric and personal attacks from the United States administration are clearly unhelpful".

Trudeau said Canada planned to retaliate after the Trump administration announced tariffs last month that will be coming as of July 1.

Reacting to Mr Trump's tweets, Mr Trudeau's office said: "We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the summit".

Trudeau refused to respond early Sunday to the insults.

The late arrival at a session, where the G7 leaders were discussing gender equality and women's empowerment sparked concerns that the U.S. president might not participate at all in Saturday's meetings.

"Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Mr Trudeau said. Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe, French president Emmanuel Macron, and British prime minister Theresa May can also be seen standing in the photo.

What did Trudeau say to warrant Kudlow's claims?

Following his departure from the summit Saturday evening, Trump tweeted that Trudeau was "Very dishonest & weak" during the summit, drawing criticism from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, including Arizona Republican Sen.

Larry Kudlow, director of the U.S. National Economic Council, said on CNN that Trudeau engaged in "betrayal" and "stabbed us in the back".

President Trump's chief economic adviser accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of stabbing the US and fellow G-7 negotiators in the back with "amateurish" verbal attacks during a domestic press conference. Trump was also furious with him for holding a press conference in which Trudeau reasserted his opposition to the US tariffs, and vowed to impose similar tariffs on USA goods.

"I highlighted directly to the president that Canadians did not take it lightly, the United States' move forward with significant tariffs on our steel and aluminum industry", began Trudeau.

"We spend two days working out a (joint) statement and commitments". The rhetoric was particularly striking given Trump's positive words this week about Kim, a brutal totalitarian.

Trump also lashed out at longtime allies over their criticism of his trade policies.

"Here's the thing. "He really kind of stabbed us in the back".

"Ultimately that's what you want", Trump said.

"We were coming together beautifully, OK?" He said US representatives will examine the tariffs on automobiles coming into the country and bemoaned the Canadian tariffs that affect American companies and farmers.

"You just don't behave that way. He essentially double-crossed him" - and that the prime minister should apologize.
