"Canada is very clear", she said.
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". Trump, in a tweet, claimed Trudeau had said something different behind closed doors. According to Trudeau, he told the president that Canadians may be polite and reasonable but they will not be pushed around and that his nation doesn't "relish" putting tariffs on USA goods and services but is willing to do so. I think that Trudeau has tried the right thing, he's been trying to use flattery and befriend Trump.
When Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked Navarro whether his sentiments came from the president, he said "those are my words, but they are the sentiment that were on Air Force One".
"The actual fact that we will have these discussions is good for our countries and good for the world", Trudeau said, noting that there were other matters at stake besides trade, including ensuring global security and advancing gender equality.
Trump had earlier called Trudeau's statement as "dishonest and weak".
"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", said Trump, who flew from Canada to Singapore for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
And Roland Paris, a former foreign policy adviser to Trudeau, jabbed Mr. Trump on Twitter: "Big tough guy once he's back on his airplane".
Kudlow said the USA had spent the summit negotiating in "good faith" with Trudeau and the other assembled leaders, and that the US had planned to sign the communique until Trudeau's news conference, which Kudlow called a "sophomoric play".
Prime Minister Trudeau on the other hand, did not balk at the statements but instead remained professional and mature - which is to be expected from a leader of one of the most respected and democratic countries in the world.
"It was a betrayal", Kudlow said on CNN's "State of the Union". He also said that the North American Free Trade Agreement could either be renegotiated, split up into separate trade deals, or the USA could pull out entirely. He also attacked Trudeau's character, calling the Liberal Party leader meek, weak and dishonest. You want a tariff free. He described all seven leaders coming together to sign the joint declaration despite having "some strong, firm conversations on trade, and specifically on American tariffs".
The nations that make up the G7 are Canada, France, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan and Italy.
Shortly after departing the G7 summit in Quebec on Saturday, President Trump tweeted that he would not endorse the group communique he had just grudgingly agreed to, after he took offense to a Justin Trudeau press conference in which the prime minister promised - rather politely - to retaliate against Trump's unreasonable tariffs against his country.
Trump has infuriated the European Union, Canada and Mexico by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.
