Canada parliament slams US' Trudeau attack

"I'm very confident that relationships between our countries, the United States and those G7 countries, will continue to move forward on a strong basis", Pompeo told reporters.

Smith further said Trump's latest attitude towards Trudeau isn't a new thing and he has "been kicking allies in the teeth his whole presidency". Mulroney began working with Trudeau previous year.

For over a year, the United States, Canada and Mexico have been engaged in tough negotiations to re-write the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

"I know it didn't look friendly". The two leaders also stood side-by-side for a photo of the world leaders together, showing that Trudeau is visibly taller than Donald Trump.

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

US President Donald Trump issued a volley of tweets on Monday venting anger on some of Washington's closest North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over the United State's trade deficit, following a divisive G7 meeting in Canada.

It now appears clear that the White House attempted to use Canada's interest in a successful G-7 summit to extract trade concessions.

Trump arrived in Singapore on Sunday in preparation for his meeting with Kim after cutting short his trip to Quebec for the G7 summit, where he met the leaders of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the EU.

As per media reports, Navarro issued an apology for the remarks that he made after Trudeau refused to amend the set trade tariffs.

Trudeau addressed the media on June 9 stating his intention to impose retaliatory measures on the U.S. from 1 July, as a necessary means to safeguard Canadian interests.

The prime minister said although retaliation "is not something I relish doing", he would not hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests".

Following the G7 meeting, President Trump lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, trashing his "false statements" and describing Trudeau as "dishonest and weak".

Kudlow later suffered a "very mild" heart attack, the White House said Monday, but was in good condition.

Senior officials of the Trump administration piled on the smears.

The purely symbolic vote of solidarity came a day after White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said: "There is a special place in hell" for Trudeau for his "bad faith diplomacy" with Trump, as a dispute over trade escalated.

"He was polarizing. He really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow, who literally at times was shaking with rage, said on CNN's "State of the Union".
