"I had a very good meeting with the G7", Trump said, rejecting suggestions the summit was a failure. "Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

Kudlow added that Trump had made the decision to pull out of the agreement in an attempt to save face ahead of his historic summit with North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, in Singapore.

After President Trump left, from Air Force One, he rage-tweeted an attack on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and announced the USA was revoking its agreement to accept the joint statement of the G-7 members.

Trump advisers also took up the attack in appearances on Sunday's news shows, leveling more withering and unprecedented criticism against Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time. "Obviously, we don't want to be held hostage to these tariffs Donald Trump has arbitrarily put in place, but there are other things that we would like to see in terms of advancing the free trade agenda". 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.

Donald Trump has been tweeting about his excitement to meet Kim Jong Un while pushing U.S. allies further away with trade war threats.

The U.S. had granted some allies including Canada temporary exemption from import tariffs on steel and aluminum.

"Very disappointing and childish and unprofessional behavior [from Trudeau]", Gorka said while on Fox & Friends on Monday.

"He really kind of stabbed us in the back", he said.

"We need to focus on the facts", and recall that Washington protects its industries too, a senior Canadian official said, pointing to United States agricultural subsidies.

"Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks".

Conservative House Leader Candice Bergen says her party is united with the Liberals when it comes to defending Canada's trade interests.

Trudeau was away from the House of Commons on a "personal" day on Monday.
