US allies ready president showdown as trade splits G7

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a Fox News interview Sunday, saying there was a "special place in hell" for Trudeau and any foreign leader who engaged in "bad-faith diplomacy" with U.S. President Donald Trump.

Finally, Trump rejected as "fake news" a question by CNN about his tense relations with other G7 leaders, especially Germany's Angela Merkel, France's Emmanuel Macron and Canada's Justin Trudeau.

Mr Trump retorted via Twitter: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

A Trudeau spokesman, Cameron Ahmad, said on Saturday night that Mr Trudeau "said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public and in private conversations" with Mr Trump.

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

"It is in the interests of everyone", Conte said in a tweet from Canada where he is due to make his global debut as Italian leader at a summit of world power leaders.

"When we disagree with our allies on something it is right that we say so and air the issue openly and frankly", she said at a news conference.

Trudeau has vehemently opposed the imposition of tariff on USA import of Canadian steel and aluminium and has threatened with retaliatory measures.

Trump refused to sign a joint agreement with US allies at the end of the summit and threatened to cut off trade with them unless deals were renegotiated.

She also said the European Union would "act" against the United States trade measures.

Trudeau has so far not commented on Trump's tirade.

Describing the USA tariffs on European steel and aluminium as "unjustified", she left no doubt that EU nations would impose counter-measures on U.S. goods in response but cautioned against tit-for-tat retaliation which might lead to a trade war.

Kudlow added that Trump had made the decision to pull out of the agreement in an attempt to save face ahead of his historic summit with North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, in Singapore.

"[Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said.

"I don't blame them, I blame our leaders", he said. And add to that the fact that the USA pays close to the entire cost of NATO-protecting many of these same countries that rip us off on Trade (they pay only a fraction of the cost-and laugh!).

According to Trump, it's not fair that other countries like Canada and India "have trade barriers against our farmers".

Mr Trudeau did not immediately respond, but his office said on Saturday after Mr Trump withdrew support for the communique that the Prime Minister had not said anything in his closing news conference he has not said to Mr Trump before.
