Trump vents anger on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, European Union and Canada's Trudeau

Over the weekend, Trump aides on Sunday morning news shows called Trudeau a backstabber who deserved a "special place in hell".

Trump on Saturday skipped out early on the G-7 meeting after rejecting the summit's statement of shared values.

"Kim must not see American weakness", Kudlow said.

"Justin acts hurt when called out!" the USA president said in his latest Tweet.

Ottawa has announced dollar-for-dollar retaliation on the USA imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada.

But one United States official, speaking on condition of anonymity, acknowledged: "The timing for all this is not very good at all".

"Canadians.stood shoulder to shoulder with American soldiers in far-off lands in conflicts from the First World War onward", he said.

Listen above to hear what kind of impact these retaliatory tariffs might have on the USA, why George says the tariffs will "hurt both sides", and how the worldwide bridge between MI and Canada fits into the countries' trad relationship.

Pompeo says U.S. is willing to 'make security assurances' to North Korea
The clearest benchmarks about what the U.S.is seeking from the summit, however, have come from Pompeo rather than Trump. When asked upon landing in Singapore how he was feeling about the encounter, Trump gave a brief answer: "Very good".

Trudeau said he had reiterated to Trump, who left the G-7 meeting before it ended, that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the U.S.

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday", Navarro said: "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump". Such a trade war would make products from other countries more expensive for US consumers and products from America more expensive in other countries.

Trudeau had been saying the same thing for several weeks, but Trump apparently found it reprehensible to repeat the message on the eve of his historic summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.

The back-and-forth between Trump and Trudeau highlights the growing tensions between the USA and some the country's closest allies.

"What I saw Prime Minister Trudeau say was, I thought, fairly benign and certainly didn't warrant any attack". Freeland later told reporters that "we don't think that's a useful or productive way to do business". "It's very unfair, and it's very unfair to our workers, and I'm gonna straighten it out. All Mr. Trudeau was doing was, in a rather gentle way, articulating the position his government - which would be the position of any Canadian government in these circumstances - so I don't view it as lethal", Mulroney said.

Navarro's interview followed another by National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow, who called Trudeau's statement as "diplomatic betrayal".

May warned of the risks of a tit-for-tat escalation of the trade dispute and said Britain continued to support the G7 communique, which mentioned the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism. Yet the beauty of it was in the last line: " Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!".
