Mulroney says he's 'never seen anything' like Trump surrogates' attacks on Trudeau

"I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do because Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said.

Asked how she had responded to Mr Trump's suggestion the G7 should be expanded to once again include Russia, Mrs May told Labour MP Ben Bradshaw: "There was a good reason why the G8 became the G7 and that was because of Russia's illegal annexation of Crimea".

European allies on Monday backed Trudeau in the spat with Trump and stressed that they will retaliate against the US tariffs with duties on USA goods.

Donald Trump's tirade against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's statement after the G7 summit may not have been related to Ottawa's stance on United States tariffs on steel and aluminum, Canadian based media The Star reported.

The war of words escalated following Trump's departure from the summit, as he expressed displeasure with Trudeau's remarks on the unfairness of US tariffs, and Canada's determination to not be pushed around.

Trump roiled the weekend Group of Seven meeting of industrialized nations in Canada by agreeing to a group statement on trade only to withdraw from it while flying to Asia.

At a rare solo news conference before heading to Asia, Trump said he pressed for the G-7 countries to eliminate all tariffs, trade barriers and subsidies in their trading practices.

May 31 - The Trump administration announces that Canada will no longer be exempt from steel and aluminum tariffs, prompting the Trudeau government to announce its own counter-measures.

Saying Trudeau's statements are "amateurish" and "sophomoric" only "for domestic consumption", Kudlow said it was Trudeau's remarks that had prompted Trump to pull out of the joint communique.

Paul Frazer, a former Canadian diplomat who is now a Washington consultant, said Ottawa's measured response to the comments from what he called Trump's "henchmen" struck the necessary tone.

Jerry Dias, the president of Unifor, speculated that the disparaging comments against Canada are motivated by domestic politics in the USA, with the looming November midterm elections and Trump anxious to paint himself as a defender of American interests.

"That's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference".

Krueger said the strong words most likely reflected the president's thinking.

White House Director of Trade Policy Peter Navarro said on "Fox News Sunday" that "there's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door".

G7 leaders pose for the family photo during the G7 Summit on June 8, 2018 in La Malbaie, Canada.

Outside the Trump-Trudeau dustup, other G7 leaders also expressed displeasure with Trump's hardline approach.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a television interview on Sunday that the summit is a "sobering" and "depressing" experience with an outcome that "wasn't a great thing". President Trump made President Trump look unstable, erratic and thin skinned.

"International cooperation can not depend on being angry and on sound bites".

As Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross wrote previous year, while other nations like to criticize the United States for anti-trade rhetoric, their policies put high tariffs on US goods. Trudeau stuck our president in the back. He said that Canada has to stand up for itself.

Still, other Trump advisers had taken 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.

Mr Trump has infuriated the European Union, Canada and Mexico by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.
