Italy's PM backs Trump on including Russia into G8

"Very dishonest & weak", he said of Trudeau.

"In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters", German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said when asked about Mr Trump's U-turn, adding it would take much longer to rebuild lost trust.

Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday, Kudlow characterized Trudeau's post-G7 news conference, in which he promised to "move forward with retaliatory measures" to counter U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico, as a "betrayal".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shot back at Trump's comments at a press conference Saturday by saying Canadians "did not take lightly" that the American tariffs were introduced on a basis of national security, and that they would not be "pushed around".

At issue are US tariffs against Canada and Trudeau's effort to retaliate against its neighbor - as well as Trudeau's comment to reporters that all seven leaders had come together to sign a joint declaration after the G-7 meeting.

In other developments at the two-day summit, Trudeau told Trump there would be no North American Free Trade Agreement unless the USA dropped its tariffs on steel and aluminum.

A few hours earlier, Trudeau had told reporters that all seven leaders had come together to sign the joint declaration. Halting all trade with countries that don't drop tariffs is a "very profitable answer", Trump said.

A longtime friend of President Donald Trump's economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, rolled his eyes at his pal's manic Sunday morning attack on Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, saying his buddy could have accidentally benen "telegraphing" the fact that it was all about putting North Korean strongman Kim Jong-un on notice that Trump is not a wimp.

Meanwhile, Navarro, in an appearance on Fox News Sunday, said that Trudeau's comments are "one of the worst political miscalculations of a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history".

Tapper picked up on the implication and said this was about North Korea.

Noting the USA imposition of tariffs was officially stated as a national security consideration, Freeland said: "We are very clear that Canada does not pose a national security threat to the United States".

The statement, which did not mention Trump by name, appeared to come down on the president for "incoherence and inconsistency" in his snub of the communique which includes a commitment to "rules-based worldwide trading system" and to combating protectionism.

A Democratic congressman chastised Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday for "sabotaging" trade negotiations as the fallout from this weekend's tense G7 summit continues, lending President Trump some bipartisan support as the war of words between the two countries escalates.

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland: "Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks". From there I go to Singapore and talks with North Korea on Denuclearization.

"I understand the president was upset", Feinstein told CNN.

"It's going to change", said Trump.
