The G7 Nations, the U.S., France, Great Britain, Canada, Japan, Italy and Germany sent leaders to the summit widely known as a gong show where developed countries decide the fate of the World.

On Saturday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had a fallout with Trump when he held a press conference after the latter departed Quebec to attend the North Korea summit in Singapore.

President Trump lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Twitter Sunday night over their disagreement on trade tariffs.

While at the Summit in Quebec, Canada, Trump blasted the foreign leaders who were there with him as they jointly were supposed to come up with new solutions and possibilities for trade.

Mr Trump said the move was based on Mr Trudeau's "false statements. and the fact that Canada is charging massive tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies". Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%.

Trump also took aim at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation for relying too heavily on the United States for their security.

Kudlow's and Navarro's comments come on the heels of a tense G7 summit that left relations with US allies even more fractured than before.

"That's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference". Trump said that he withdrew the USA from the G-7's joint statement because of that slight.

The verbal volleys by Mr Navarro and Mr Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, picked up where Mr Trump left off on Saturday evening with a series of tweets from Air Force One en route to Singapore for his nuclear summit on Tuesday with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

Both men said they still want companies to release detailed quarterly and annual financial data, so investors can evaluate them. Morgan chief executive Jamie Dimon appeared on CNBC on Thursday to discuss why he doesn't think tariffs are the way to go.


But trade policy experts say Canada's trade relationship with the U.S.is key to our domestic economy.

French President Emmanuel Macron said worldwide co-operation could not be "dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks".

Trump said ahead of the G7 summit, which took place in Canada over the weekend, that Russian Federation should return to the group.

Trudeau also said, "The US will not allow other countries to impose massive tariffs and trade barriers on its farmers, workers and companies".

When Mrs Merkel was asked if she was concerned about President Trump's retaliation against European Union counter-measures by imposing tariffs on cars, she said: "First of all, we'll try and see if we can prevent this and then hope that the European Union will respond again in the same unity".

Trade adviser Peter Navarro told "Fox News Sunday" that "there is a special place in hell for any leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy" with Trump.

"I just don't see anything wrong with the American president suggesting that the G7 go back and have another discussion with Russia", Kudlow said on CNN's "State of the Union".

"POTUS is not going to let a Canadian prime minister push him around on the eve of this", Kudlow said, using an acronym for president of the United States. He also said the G7 countries had "again" failed to provide any evidence that Russian Federation was behind the poisoning of a former double agent and his daughter in Britain in March.

While Trump won a quick endorsement from Italy, other nations including Germany and the United Kingdom warned that Russian Federation would need to change its behavior for the G8 to be revived.
