"Didn't you guys burn down the White House?". It is believed that the British attack on Washington was in retaliation for the American attack on York, Ontario - territory that eventually became Canada. Canada is also part of the Five Eyes intelligence alliance with the United States and three other nations that exchange especially sensitive information.
Mr Trump, who has vowed to protect U.S. industry and workers from what he describes as unfair worldwide competition as part of an "America First" agenda, is due to hold bilateral meetings with Mr Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron during the summit, Mr Kudlow said.
That plan fell through when the White House tried to insist that he agree to including a so-called "sunset clause" in the deal.
Trump suggested last week that NAFTA could be replaced with two separate trade accords, one with Mexico and another with Canada. Trump said, according to CNN and the CBC.
"That Canada could be considered a national security threat to the United States is inconceivable", Trudeau said, according to the Associated Press.
"That's the best option we have today", Macron told reporters.
By contrast, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said the talks were "far more a G6 plus one than a G7". "Do you really believe that Canada, that your North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, represent a national security threat to you?" With tariffs raising the price by 20 percent, Mexican consumers may purchase less of it, meaning the country may end up buying a smaller quantity of USA pork products.

While trade is expected to dominate, Trudeau also wants to focus on gender equality and climate change.
"Unfortunately, the administration is abusing the Section 232 authority delegated to the president by Congress", said Senator Bob Corker, the bill's chief proponent.
Emmanuel Macron has called on other members of the G7 to stand up to Donald Trump's trade policies in the face of what he described as the threat of a new USA "hegemony". The United States wanted free trade with Europe, but Britain was vehemently opposed to that.
Whether or not Trump attends the G7 meeting, the spectre of the president's belligerent trade policy will linger over the gathering.
Trudeau reportedly asked Trump to justify his view that the tariffs were a national security issue.
News agency Reuters said that the retaliatory tariffs could "have political implications in some hotly contested races" in the United States midterm elections in November, in which the Republican Party is seeking to maintain control of both houses of Congress.
