Trump's attacks against Trudeau unanimously condemned by Canadian lawmakers

But members of his administration went for the jugular. Tagging President Trump, he tweeted: Others just took the opportunity to laugh.

Trump said Trudeau's comments at the final press conference at the tumultuous G7 summit in Charlevoix that Canada "will not be pushed around" on the issue of punitive US tariffs on steel and aluminum will cost Canadians "a lot of money".

Navarro slammed Trudeau's comment as "one of the worst political miscalculations by a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history".

"I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests", Trudeau said.

United States President Donald Trump's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Sunday accused Canadian President Justin Trudeau of backstabbing them.

All of the countries attending the G7 meeting agreed to a communique showing shared priorities.

"He really kind of stabbed us in the back", he said.

On Fox News Sunday, White House Director of Trade Policy Peter Navarro also defended the president with adversarial language. "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did at that stunt press conference". "And that comes right from Air Force One".

Clippers Rumors: The best way to trade up for Luka Doncic
Michael Scotto recently reported that the Clippers have " made calls to several teams " with a Top-10 pick to try to make a trade. SI's draft expert Jeremy Woo projects the Memphis Grizzlies to select Doncic with the fourth pick in his latest mock draft .

"He (Trump) is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea", Kudlow said.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said on Sunday in response to questions about Kudlow and Navarro's comments that she is thankful she is "not responsible for explaining the reasoning behind any comments made by the officials of any foreign government".

The former Conservative prime minister said that while he believes the dispute is serious, that doesn't make it "lethal".

But many soon pointed out that the hotel also served as a brothel (Donald Trump had claimed it was never a brothel, though historians disagree), and the Washington Examiner noted that Justin Trudeau seemed to barely contain his laughter as he gave it to Trump.

This seems to have been what Trump was referring to when he tweeted: "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".

Canada's economy is heavily reliant on free trade with the United States, with some 75 percent of its exports going to its southern neighbor.

"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 United States dairy products. "Then Justin acts hurt when called out!"

Before the apology, some US lawmakers on Tuesday questioned the strong language the White House and Trump have used toward Canada in contrast to the praise he gave North Korea at Tuesday's summit in Singapore.
