Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak" on Twitter on Saturday and then sent Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro to hammer the message home on Sunday morning news shows in an extraordinary assault on a close USA ally and neighbour.
Trump's bombshell tweet came after G7 nations appeared to have papered over the cracks in their alliance at the two-day summit in La Malbaie, Quebec, where Trump defiantly brandished his "America First" agenda.
Mr. Trump's tweets taking aim at the leader of a country that has always been a USA ally came after the President left the G7 summit in Canada to travel to Singapore ahead of a planned diplomatic meeting with North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un, CNN reported. "Canada is the biggest single purchaser of US goods and services in the world - it's not China, it's not Mexico, it's not Britain, it's not Germany".

Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door".
