Trump confused by Trudeau's 'pushed around' comment: 'We just shook hands!'

Trump said he chose to back out of the G7 communique after watching Trudeau's closing summit news conference, at which he warned that Canada would not be pushed around on tariffs - a point the Canadian prime minister had made several times before.

Trudeau, at a press conference at the end of the summit, had announced that Canada's retaliatory tariffs against the USA would go into effect July 1. "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference".

Mr Navarro reportedly said on Tuesday his remarks were a mistake and his language was inappropriate.

"Well, he holds a press conference and he says the U.S.is insulting".

"We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing, and it ends", Mr. Trump told reporters at a press conference at the end of the meeting, just before he jets off to Singapore to meet with North Korea's leader. "This can not be our party", Flake tweeted on Sunday. "Using that type of language is not professional, it's not called for, and I tell you, I was deeply disappointed to see this lack of professionalism on his part".

Trudeau is not Trump's only target in the growing trade war with the other members of the G7, which is made up of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the UK.

Trump went on to say that the United States gets "unfairly clobbered" on trade despite "protecting Europe at great financial loss".

Following Trump's departure from the G7 summit, Trudeau said in a press conference that he told the USA president that his steel and aluminum tariffs were "kind of insulting", that Canada "will not be pushed around" and that it would not hesitate to impose retaliatory measures. Trump criticizing the Group of Seven nations host and stepped back from the generally positive tone that had ended the two-day meeting in Quebec.

The newspaper said Mr Trump "chose to make up his own facts" about tariffs and trade. "I really did. Other than he had a news conference that he had cause he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching".

"I'm pretty sure that circles of hell are not reserved for Canadians proposing retaliatory tariffs", said Texas Republican Sen.

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

On June 1, the U.S. imposed a 25 per cent tariff for steel and 10 per cent for aluminium on imports from the European Union (EU), Canada, and Mexico.

"Looking forward to straightening out unfair Trade Deals with the G-7 countries", Trump wrote on Twitter early Friday morning. "And it won't even be tough".

US President Donald Trump warned on Saturday at the G7 Summit here that the US will do whatever is necessary for his country to have fair trade relations with other countries. "One thing leads to another".

Rolando Pablos, the secretary of state in Texas' Republican administration, brushed off questions over Trump's feud with Canada but stressed the importance of trade.

"They're both dear friends of Australia", she said.

"He was polarizing", Kudlow said on CNN. The Trudeau government has announced it will impose dollar-for-dollar, retaliatory tariffs on metals and a range of other USA products by July 1.
