Trump advisers accuse Trudeau of betrayal

U.S. President Donald Trump - who regularly threatens to pull out of the North American Free Trade Agreement - insists that Canada and Mexico agree to a sunset clause that would allow a member nation to withdraw after five years.

Trump said that Trudeau was "meek and mild" during the G7 meeting.

Earlier on Saturday, Trudeau said that he would "with absolute certainty" impose retaliatory tariffs on the United States in response to Trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum, which the Trump administration imposed in the name of national security. "We work closely with President Trump, and the UK has a very good relationship with the United States", she said, noting that the two-day summit was filled with "some hard discussions and strong debate".

France warned Sunday that "fits of anger" could not dictate worldwide cooperation after US President Donald Trump abruptly rejected a joint statement agreed following a bad-tempered G7 summit in Canada.

"International cooperation can't depend on anger and small words". And we charge nothing, ' Trump said.

Following Trudeau's comments regarding the communique, the Canadian leader said "strong, firm conversations on trade and specifically American tariffs" took placed at the G-7 meeting.

"In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters", German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said when asked about Trump's U-turn, adding it would take much longer to rebuild lost trust.

He added that the U.S.is like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing.

Kudlow was speaking following the G7 summit in Canada on Saturday.

Special prosecutor Robert Mueller is investigating Russia's involvement in the 2016 USA presidential election, including links to Trump's campaign.

In the run-up to the G7 summit, United States relations with the most of the remaining G7 countries have deteriorated, since Washington removed an exemption on 25 percent tariffs for steel and 10 percent for aluminum from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union, which prompted the bloc and Canada to roll out retaliatory measures.

However, a subsequent tweet from Trump backed away from that notion and pointed to lingering divisions.

"On NAFTA we either leave it the way it is as a three-some deal with Canada, the United States and Mexico and change it very substantially - we're talking about very big changes".

"Our values and interests are built through multilateralism, including American interests", Macron said in a tweet.

Trump also defended his recent imposition of punishing steel and aluminum tariffs was based on legitimate national security concerns, and said he stood firm against the concerns of his fellow G7 leaders during their talks.

Although Canada and Mexico say the idea is unworkable, Trump told reporters earlier on Saturday that the new deal would contain such a provision.

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, who met with Trudeau on Sunday, said it was time for G20 nations to play a role and to "also bring about some good sense to all the key players".
