Larry Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council, lashed out at Trudeau as "amateurish" and "sophomoric" for a news conference he gave after Trump left the G7 summit on Saturday.

The announcement and Trump's planned tariffs have also put him on a collision course with Trudeau, leader of another key U.S. ally.

Despite the apparent acrimony, Mr Macron said the G7 -which groups the United States, Canada, Great Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan - has succeeded in coming up with a joint declaration on trade.

Trump had appeared cordial during the two-day summit in Quebec, but he erupted with a Twitter firestorm of criticism of Trudeau once aboard Air Force One. -Canada border. He said unleashing retaliatory measures "is not something I relish doing" but that he wouldn't hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests".

"As Canadians, we are polite, we're reasonable, but also we will not be pushed around", he said.

In urging Trudeau to apologize for his comments, he also said the prime minister's statements were a "diplomatic betrayal" as Trump headed to Singapore to his high-profile summit with North Korean leader with Kim Jong-un.

"These are jointly shared principles, although the pitfalls lie in the details", German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a press conference before the release of the communique. Canadians, he said, "will not be pushed around".

But Kudlow said he doesn't know whether there will be a deal and that Trump had no alternative but to respond the way he did to Trudeau's "very unfortunate" statements.

Trump also called for Canada to drop all trade tariffs, such as the one created to protect Canada's small dairy industry, and threatened more trade action if Canada did not acquiesce.

The fight isn't just with Trudeau and Canada but with the best allies of the U.S., Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein of California said on CNN.
