Trump vents anger on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, European Union and Canada's Trudeau

However, Navarro says he used inappropriate language in trying to convey that message.

Although he insisted he had a good relationship with Justin Trudeau, just days after blowing up a G7 summit the Canadian prime minister had hosted, Trump took another dig at him, saying the United States had a big trade deficit with Canada and that "a little balance" was needed.

"Trump's disruptiveness is one thing, but his treatment of Canada and other USA allies is unprecedented", said Roland Paris, a University of Ottawa professor and former Trudeau foreign policy adviser.

This year's annual G7 summit was marked by tensions and harsh words exchanged between President Donald Trump and other world leaders over trade.

Canada's prime minister earned Trump's ire by giving a press conference, after the United States president left La Malbaie, in which he spoke critically of USA trade policy and said Canada would "move forward with retaliatory measures" in response to Trump's move to impose tariffs on aluminum and steel.

U.S. President Donald Trump says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's assertion that Canada "will not be pushed around" will end up costing Canadians "a lot of money". The president tweeted from Air Force One that Trudeau was "dishonest", and weak.

But today he apologized for using language that counteracted his goal of sending a signal of strength.

It was Mr. Trump's own Saturday news conference that forced Mr. Trudeau to talk about sunset clauses and retaliatory tariffs, and made it mandatory to express (polite) resolve. (We certainly pray for a full and quick recovery.) Kudlow didn't go quite as far as Navarro did in consigning Trudeau to the nether regions, but his remarks were sharply personal in attacking Trudeau, especially in describing his remarks as personal betrayals of Trump.

Trudeau also said he would stand up for Canadians.

Trump also continued to denounce Canada's system of supply management to protect the domestic dairy, egg and poultry industry, which levels tariffs of up to 300 per cent on American imports of those products.

Both aides accused Trudeau of betraying Trump, a Republican, at a news conference held after the US president had departed Canada.

"I actually like Justin, you know, I think he's good, I like him, but he shouldn't have done that", Trump said. "It was very friendly", Mr Trump said.

The EU nations have agreed to stick to the communique as well, thus completely alienating the USA from its oldest allies, with Germany's economy minister claiming that the entire affair has brought the European Union closer.

Trump's attacks arrive as the United States and Canada renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement alongside Mexico.
