Trump takes more swipes at Canada after arrival in Singapore

U.S. President Donald Trump throws the G7's efforts to show a united front into disarray after he became angry with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and instructed his representatives NOT to endorse the summit's joint communique.

Tweeted Trump in a series of tweets starting last night: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

US President Donald Trump on Monday continued his vitriolic attacks on several close allies in the wake of his early departure from an unusually discordant G7 meeting in Canada, which saw him withdraw US support for a joint communique.

Kudlow said Trump won't let a Canadian prime minister push him around on the eve of his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Addressing reporters in Singapore ahead of Trump's summit Tuesday with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Pompeo said he was "unconcerned" that Trump's treatment of Canada - a close ally - boded poorly for his ability to forge peace with a longtime USA adversary.

Mexico hit back with fiscal penalties on USA exports like pork, steel, cheese and whiskey. "Kim must not see American weakness".

The announcement came after the president left the summit, which while in attendance he had announced he wants to put an end to the United States' status as the world's "piggy bank" and suggested eliminating trade barriers between allies.

The move enraged Trump, who branded his Canadian counterpart "dishonest and weak" in a furious tweet, announcing the USA would pull out of an agreed communique. He further threatened to stop doing trade with countries "who are being unfair" to the US.

In response to Trump's tweets, the PMO released a statement shortly after that simply read, "The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't before - both in public, and in private conversations with the President".

"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".

"On the issue of [tariffs and trade deficits] alone, we have allies strategically, but when it comes to trade disputes, these allies are basically robbing us blind", he said.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

"I don't blame other leaders for that", Trump said.

In response to Mr Trump's decision to withhold United States support for the summit conclusions, a senior United Kingdom government source said: "We stand by the commitments made in the G7 communique". He said that Canada has to stand up for itself.

Trump also targeted Trudeau on Twitter this weekend after the talks, saying Trudeau's "false statements" led him to decide not to sign the G7 communique.
