Trump calls for end to Russian expulsion from G7

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said his harsh rhetoric came from

US President Donald Trump - now in Singapore - continued his personal tweeting attack against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, with the assertion that "Justin acts hurt when called out!" He called Trump's refusal to sign the communique a display of "incoherence and inconsistency". On the other hand, another social media user said, "It looks as if Madam Merkel is teaching The Donald a lesson!"

That move was met with criticism at home, including from Republicans, and announcements of retaliatory tariffs from USA allies.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Mr Trump had already left the summit when Mr Trudeau announced retaliatory measures Canada would take next month in response to United States tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

In return, Mr Trump made the French president his guest at his first White House state dinner, after which the USA president said of his visitor: "I like him a lot".

"We will not.sign a trade deal that expires every 5 years - that is not a trade deal", Trudeau said.

Trump arrived in Singapore on Sunday for the summit that could lay the groundwork for ending a nuclear stand-off between the old foes.

In his interview Sunday, Kudlow accused Trudeau of making his comments for "domestic political consumption" and doing "a great disservice to the whole G7".

Trump and Trudeau exchanged barbs after a highly contentious G-7 meeting resulted in a press conference in which Trudeau promised not to be pushed around.

G8 became G7 in 2014 when Russian Federation was excluded over the unlawful annexation of Crimea. "He ought to come out today and wish President Trump well in the negotiations instead of taking pot shots at him".

Trump repeated the call on Saturday, saying "we're looking for peace in the world".

Navarro, the Trump trade adviser, said his harsh assessment of what "bad faith" Trudeau did with "that stunt press conference" on Saturday "comes right from Air Force One".

Though the G-7 managed to reach an agreement basic principles regarding trade, relations between with the United States and the other members, particularly Canada, remained strained.

"They should have said to him, 'God speed, you are negotiating with the insane nuclear tyrant in North Korea, and we are behind you, '" Kudlow said.

"Why are we having a meeting without Russian Federation being in the meeting?"

During the summit, Trump said US allies treat America "like a piggy bank" and vowed to keep in place the new tariffs.

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.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Mr Trump's announcement on Twitter had destroyed trust and Europe's answer must be to stick even closer together.
