What Really Sparked Trump's Outrage Over Trudeau's Statement?

Trump told Macron EU worse than China on trade

"The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the president".

May 25 - Trump reportedly quips to Trudeau, "Didn't you guys burn down the White House?" after Trudeau protests the USA invoking "national security" as its reason for imposing tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum.

"Canadians.stood shoulder to shoulder with American soldiers in far-off lands in conflicts from the First World War onward", he said.

"We hope it doesn't come to that, but if the USA tariffs remain in effect, we will impose our tariffs on July 1", he said.

Republican author Van Hipp, the One Lucky Guy for the day on Outnumbered, agreed that Trump should not have attended the G7 with the North Korean summit looming. He really kind of stabbed us in the back. "He did a great disservice to the whole G7".

But after Mr. Trump left the summit he announced he was pulling out of the statement, citing statements by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a post-summer press conference, where Mr. Trudeau said Canada had been "insulted" by Mr. Trump justifying his tariffs on national-security grounds.

Trump has framed the topic of trade agreements as an issue of national security, a stance backed by the advisers he has stocked in his White House, including the new National Security Advisor John Bolton.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump", Navarro insisted.

Kudlow said that Trudeau's statements are "amateurish" and "sophomoric" only "for domestic consumption", and that it was Trudeau's remarks that had prompted Trump to pull out of the joint communique. "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference". Navarro later clarified that his comments were "the sentiment that was on Air Force One after that".

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 USA president.

Kudlow said Kim must not see "American weakness" on the eve of the Tuesday summit. "He can't do that". Also, contrary to Trump's attacks, the USA maintained an $8.4 billion trade surplus with Canada previous year, mostly due to a large advantage in services.

Trump issues another Twitter salvo Sunday night, suggesting that Canada is "bragging" in an unspecified release about benefiting from USA trade - "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", he wrote in one tweet that then went on to accuse Canada of imposing unfair taxes on U.S. dairy products. "Then Justin acts hurt when called out!"

"I'm very confident that relationships between our countries, the United States and those G7 countries, will continue to move forward on a strong basis", Pompeo told reporters. "Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!"

"Mr. Trudeau had sought to play down personal clashes with Mr. Trump as he wrapped up the summit, calling the meeting "very successful" and saying he was 'inspired by the discussion.'", the paper adds.

Clearly, Mr. Trump saw things differently.
