Trump aide says Trudeau ‘stabbed us in the back’

14 June 2018

The White House today launched a blistering attack on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, accusing him of betrayal for his actions during the recently-concluded G-7 summit in Quebec City.

After some intense discussion, Justin Trudeau was desperately trying to hammer out a Communique proclaiming the G7 a success with some common ground.

Trump was reacting to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who said Saturday that Canada would retaliate for Trump's proposed new tariffs. On Saturday, en route to Singapore, President Trump tweeted that the United States will not endorse the communique. "Trudeau stuck our President in the back".

The president's call to eliminate trade barriers came as tensions build between the United States and its allies after the Trump administration imposed steep tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada and Mexico. Very dishonest and weak.

The president has questioned privately why he should attend the G7 at all, according to a person familiar with the conversations, but was advised that skipping the meeting would appear as though he's backing down.

In a matter of hours and series of texts, the USA has rushed into a diplomatic crisis with its closest allies, adding anxiety to an already tense global economy.

Canadian politicians of all stripes rallied round their prime minister on Monday after his cautious and polite defense of free trade rules drew an extraordinary personal rebuke from US President Donald Trump.

"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", he said. Mr. Trudeau had engaged in "bad-faith diplomacy", Mr. Navarro maintained.

Trudeau has the European Union's support, though. "All Justin Trudeau had to do was take the win".

The group of seven nations that make up the G7 are Canada, France, the USA, the UK, Germany, Japan and Italy.

Trump negotiated in good faith on the communique agreed by the other members of the G7, only to have Trudeau criticize USA policy after he left, Kudlow said. On Monday in Singapore, the former reality TV show host continued his rant against Canada and the rest of the G7 nations, which also include France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the UK. Tagging President Trump, he tweeted: Others just took the opportunity to laugh.

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. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!", Trump wrote in a second tweet.
