June 6 - Trudeau tells Global National that he's "disappointed" at the reasoning behind Trump's tariffs, saying he doesn't understand "in what universe" a long-time ally of the US could be considered a national security threat.
Asked what Trudeau did that amounted to betrayal, Kudlow criticized the Canadian leader for holding a press conference in which he called USA tariffs "insulting".
Trump also renewed attacks on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who had hosted the G7 meeting in Quebec.
Trudeau also said Canada would move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1 in response to tariffs on steel and aluminium imports into the U.S. from Canada, Mexico and European Union (EU) countries announced by Trump on May 31.
After bashing Trudeau and the other attendees, President Trump's top economic advisor actually took to CNN Sunday morning, claiming Prime Minister Trudeau "stabbed" America "in the back".
In the brief photo opportunity that started their bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the fractious G7 summit, Trump followed Trudeau's diplomatic introduction by joking that Trudeau had backed down on retaliatory tariffs. UK Prime Minister Theresa May stood with Trudeau on the issue of trade.
MPs speaking to The Canadian Press said they've heard from constituents who are anxious about the implications of Trump's assertions, and it's expected the weekend's war of words will be a focus during question period on Monday afternoon.

Germany and France are also standing by the jointly agreed communique.

In the end, Trump never visited the sessions on climate or the ocean, but held its own news conference, where he slammed "unfair trade" and promised to cut ties with countries that didn't adhere to a "zero tariffs", policy, then leaving for a summit in Singapore. 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".
