Donald Trump's top economic adviser is accusing Justin Trudeau of betraying the USA administration hours after the president himself launched insults at the prime minister, calling him "very dishonest and weak".

On Sunday's CNN's "State of the Union", Kudlow called Trudeau's criticism of us tariffs "non-factual", adding that Canada had "enormous tariffs" on USA imports.

The US blamed Canada on Sunday for the disastrous ending to the G7 summit, saying Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "stabbed us in the back", while American allies held Washington responsible.

Trump lashed out at Trudeau after the "Big seven" presented a joint communiqué, according to which the Alliance of countries managed to overcome some of the differences and to reach an understanding on several issues. She said: 'This was a hard summit, with at times some very candid discussions.

"He really kinda stabbed us in the back", top USA economic advisor Larry Kudlow said of Trudeau on CNN's "State of the Union".

She said with the Trump administration's decision to implement new tariffs on aluminum and steel imports to the United States, "multilateralism right now is in a complicated and hard phase".

The Post wrote that Canada "has every right to be insulted".

Larry Kudlow, a White House economic adviser, said Canada had made "polarizing" statements about USA trade policy and that Mr Trump was left with no choice but to pull out of the joint statement.

Dennis Rodman arrives in Singapore for Trump-Kim summit
Citizens in the North Korean capital watched the coverage on a big screen TV and read it on the front page of newspapers. That is not something that other countries would have - I would say - initial domain over a discussion with us.

In a news conference after the summit, the Canadian leader had reasserted his opposition to the United States tariffs, and vowed to press ahead with retaliatory moves on 1 July.

Mr Kudlow said: "He held a press conference and he said the U.S.is insulting".

Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland responded by saying the US was the one insulting its ally. Eventually, a compromise was reached for the text, which reads: "We underline the crucial role of a rules-based global trading system".

Following the G7 summit in Quebec, Canada, over the weekend, Trump and Trudeau engaged in a war of words over Trump's decision to impose sizeable tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum imports.

Freeland said of the USA tariffs, "The national security pretext is absurd and frankly insulting to Canadians, the closest and strongest ally the United States has had".

Trump's supporters also criticized Trudeau.

"Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Mr Trudeau said. Conspiracy theories, jokes and memes started bubbling up after the Canadian Prime Minister's eyebrows appeared uneven during his press conference with French president Emanuel Macron.

Trump announced after Trudeau's press conference that the US would not sign onto the G-7 communique. According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with United States (guess they were bragging and got caught!).
