Donald Trump's trade adviser has labelled Canadian premier Justin Trudeau a back-stabber unworthy of the U.S. president's time after the acrimonious end to the G7 summit.

After departing from the Quebec summit for Singapore, Trump tweeted that Trudeau's remarks at a news conference, where he said Canada would not be pushed around, "were very dishonest and weak". But he acknowledges that Trump might not realize he's jeopardizing U.S.jobs by triggering a series of tariffs and counter-tariffs with Canada.

Kudlow sought to tie Trump's reaction to the upcoming summit with Kim Jong Un, saying the North Korean leader "must not see American weakness". Trump aides accused Trudeau of betrayal of Trump for his statement on retaliation.

Peter Navarro, the White House director of trade policy, was perhaps one of the fiercest critics of one other particular leader who attended the summit, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Kudlow said allies should understand that Trump "will do what is necessary to protect the USA, its businesses and its workforce", adding that Trump "has always said, and I agree, tariffs are a tool in that effort".

Trudeau had told reporters that Trump's decision to invoke national security to justify USA tariffs on steel and aluminum imports was "kind of insulting" to Canadian veterans who had stood by their USA allies in conflicts dating back to World War I.

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada", Trump said.

A Trudeau spokesman, Cameron Ahmad, said on Saturday night that Mr Trudeau "said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public and in private conversations" with Mr Trump.

French President Emmanuel Macron's office reacted Sunday by saying that "international cooperation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks".

The European Union responded to the attack on Sunday evening, with European Council President Donald Tusk tweeting that Trudeau deserved a "special place in heaven" for organizing the G-7 summit. "He learned", Trump said wagging his finger.

But French President Emmanuel Macron wrote of a united front of leaders against Trump, even though participants still described the talks as cordial, the Post reported.

Trump advisers also took up the attack in appearances on Sunday's news shows, leveling more withering and unprecedented criticism against Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time.

The report claims, according to press sources, both Canada and Mexico have dismissed the idea of bilateral deals, as have several key USA lawmakers. "When it comes to trade the U.S. needs Canada and Canada needs the U.S. Our economies are integrated", said Gallant.

Kudlow later suffered a "very mild" heart attack, the White House said Monday, but was in good condition.

While trade is expected to dominate, Trudeau also wants to focus on gender equality and climate change.
