FACT CHECK: Did Justin Trudeau's Eyebrow Fall Off at the G7 Summit?

The Latest: Merkel finds Trump's action sobering, depressing

Trump announced on Twitter he had made the decision following comments from Trudeau that Canada would move ahead with imposing retaliatory measures on the USA in response to newly imposed tariffs imposed by the U.S. on aluminum and steel.

"That's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference".

Trump, who is in Singapore for meetings with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, tweeted that "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal" and suggested that Canada is "bragging" in an unspecified release about benefiting from U.S. trade.

The president did not specify which exact remarks he considered to be false.

Germany's Angela Merkel later described Mr Trump's decision to reject the joint communique initially agreed between the G7 leaders as "sobering" and "depressing".

"Despite the tension, the member states" leaders were cordial in person, Trump included. The two countries' trade conflict has been ratcheting up for weeks, but twice recently - before and after the G-7 meeting - Trudeau repeated a certain comment, saying Canada was "polite" but "will not be pushed around".

Trump arrived late to the G-7, after letting it be known he had no desire to show up at all. The EU trade surplus with the U.S.is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out.

On June 7 - the eve of Trudeau's G7 summit - Trump sends out another missive - "Prime Minister Trudeau is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the USA and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things. but he doesn't bring up the fact that they charge us up to 300% on dairy - hurting our Farmers, killing our Agriculture!" "Then Justin acts hurt when called out!"

Canadians agree this weekend was a turning point, and maybe an overall historic low, in Canada-U.S. relations. Trump told reporters in Washington on June 8 as left the White House to fly to Canada for the G7 summit.

"The whole tone of the bilateral rhetoric between Canada and the USA seems to have deteriorated quite significantly", he said. The former are targeted with a 25-percent tariff, while a 2.5 percent tariff applies on other vehicles. "We must put the American worker first!" he tweeted later.

While at the Summit in Quebec, Canada, Trump blasted the foreign leaders who were there with him as they jointly were supposed to come up with new solutions and possibilities for trade.

"[Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Mr Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council who had accompanied Mr Trump to the G7 summit said on Monday morning on CNN. But Trump's rhetoric after the conference wasn't that different from his rhetoric before it.

That argument, however, has rarely been used by WTO member states, partially because proving that the exception applies is usually hard and virtually impossible in Trump's case. Navarro also said Trump attending the G7 in Canada was a "courtesy" to Trudeau and that the President had "bigger things on his plate" in Singapore. "I highlighted directly to the president that Canadians did not take it lightly that the United States has moved forward with significant tariffs on our steel and aluminum industry", Trudeau said Saturday.
