Larry Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council, lashed out at Trudeau as "amateurish" and "sophomoric".

Canada will have to make dairy concessions to get a US trade deal, but it does not have to mean dismantling supply management, Gifford said. "And that's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference". "It was very friendly", Trump said. "Kim must not see American weakness". But more importantly, he should apologize to the Canadian public.

"He really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said, echoing Navarro. In other words, we and our allies are well down the path toward totally free trade.

"When I got out to the plane, I think that Justin probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions".

Earlier this week Mr Trump also called Mr Trudeau "very dishonest and weak".

The insults stemmed from a closing G7 press conference on Saturday in which Trudeau called United States steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs. Kudlow said the president won't "let a Canadian prime minister push him around".

Those comments came after Trudeau's closing news conference at the G7 summit in Quebec on Saturday, when the prime minister said he had pushed back against the Trump administration's tariffs on steel and aluminum.

Canada's loss has been Mexico's gain, as production there has soared thanks to Nafta and other trade deals.

By using the G-7 summit as leverage in a bilateral trade negotiation, the United States missed an opportunity to work with allies to address issues such as terrorist financing and foreign threats to democracy.

Liberal MP and former dairy farmer Wayne Easter said there was a real sense of panic building in his P.E.I. riding over the implications of Trump's pronouncements following his departure from the G7 gathering. "Who picked the fight?" And I said, 'What's this all about?

Trudeau did not fire back when asked to respond to his USA counterpart's latest jab.

"We have a big trade deficit with Canada". "I understand the president was upset".

The problem with auto tariffs is that it takes a long time to shift production, meaning American consumers would pay the price for several years, said Flavio Volpe, president of the Automotive Parts Manufacturers' Association, which represents Canada's auto suppliers.

The suggestion to re-admit Russian Federation, expelled after its 2014 invasion of Crimea, was met by widespread skepticism; only new Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte appeared to favor a return to a "G-8".
