Amid tensions, all G-7 members sign statement

Mr Navarro said Mr Trump "did the courtesy to Justin Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit".

Just when it seemed like the Group of Seven summit had come to a surprisingly uneventful end, President Donald Trump stepped in with two tweets that blew up the whole thing.

The comments, made after Trump had left to go to Singapore for his much-anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, infuriated the US president. The president is flying to Singapore to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong Un. "Kim must not see American weakness".

Trump had already roiled G-7 members ahead of the summit and raised fears of a trade war when he placed tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, the European Union and Mexico.

Mr Trudeau did not respond to questions about Mr Trump when the prime minister arrived at a Quebec City hotel on Sunday for meetings with other world leaders, though Mr Freeland later told reporters that "we don't think that's a useful or productive way to do business". "He's a pathetic little man-child".

Speaking in a solo press conference from the resort town of La Malbaie in Quebec, the president said that for too long, USA trade has suffered from "bad" trade deals agreed to by past US presidents.

He told reporters that imposing retaliatory measures "is not something I relish doing" but that he wouldn't hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests". He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable, but we will also not be pushed around", Trudeau said.

Kudlow also accused Trudeau of trying to undermine the USA president at a critical time before his summit with the reclusive Kim on Tuesday. "That will not stand".

"They should let Russian Federation come back in, because we should have Russian Federation at the negotiating table", Trump said.

Donald Trump and Justin Trudeau have been at loggerheads over trade tariffs

"Don't blame Trump. It was Trudeau who started blasting Trump after he left, after the deals had been made". "He's not going to allow the people to suddenly take pot shots at him".

But the criticism left a former Canadian prime minister, Stephen Harper, stumped.

"A special place in hell" for one of America's closest allies?

"We urge Russian Federation to cease its destabilising behaviour, to undermine democratic systems and its support of the Syrian regime", said a joint statement issued at the end of a summit in Canada. He described all seven leaders coming together to sign the joint declaration despite having "some strong, firm conversations on trade, and specifically on American tariffs".

Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak" on Twitter on Saturday and then sent Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro to hammer the message home on Sunday morning news shows in an extraordinary assault on a close USA ally and neighbor. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

Trump threatened that the United States will stop trading with countries that maintain tariffs on his country's exports, particularly in the agricultural sector, and that he has launched the idea of eliminating all trade duties, because "ultimately that's what you want".

The G-7 also includes Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan.

"If they retaliate, they're making a mistake", Trump said.

But Mr Trump insisted it would be an "asset" to have Vladimir Putin back at the summit table. Trump added "look, all of these countries have been taking advantage of the United States on trade", and promised that those days are over.

Like Navarro and Kudlow, Sen.
