The outburst against Trudeau, and by association the other G7 members, is only the latest incident in which Trump has clashed with America's closest allies, even as he has had warm words for autocrats like Kim and Russia's Vladimir Putin.
Former prime minister Brian Mulroney says weekend attacks on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau by surrogates of U.S. President Donald Trump were unprecedented - but Canadian negotiators shouldn't let the remarks throw them off their NAFTA strategy.
"PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he "will not be pushed around".
He called Mr Trudeau "dishonest & weak" after Mr Trudeau said at a news conference that Canada would retaliate for new United States tariffs.
Trump adviser Peter Navarro, meanwhile, said Tuesday he made a mistake when he said "there's a special place in hell" for Trudeau.

According to the USTR, America counts Canadian goods that are shipped to regional trading hubs within the United States and then re-exported back to Canada or Mexico as USA exports.
Ottawa has announced dollar-for-dollar retaliation on the USA imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada. Trump imposed steep tariffs on steel and aluminum last month to rebalance trade, he said.
And it concludes with a direct shot at Trump, calling on the House to "reject disparaging and ad hominem statements by US officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute". Canada does have very big advantages over us in terms of trade deficits.
Using this metric, the USTR reports, Canada can claim a $90 billion annual surplus in goods trade, although the U.S. still has a large advantage in services. Canada exports $300 billion worth of goods to the United States, while the USA exports $282.5 billion worth of goods to Canada. Trump addressed the feud following his meetings with Kim in Singapore at a more than hour-long press conference. Trudeau had used similar language in the past, and Canada threatened retaliatory tariffs before the G-7 got underway in response to the US duties on metal. "They're gonna do what they can to defend and protect their country, just like we're trying to do the same thing with ours".
German Chancellor Angela Merkel described his change of heart as "sobering and a little depressing". Though the image appeared to speak to the tension between the leaders, Trump said it was captured during a discussion that was "unrelated to anything". "I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau", he said.
