Trump attacked Trudeau in a pair of tweets Saturday after leaving the Group of Seven (G-7) summit, claiming that Trudeau made “false statements” at a news conference and calling the prime minister “very dishonest and weak.”

Trump also said the U.S. would not endorse the joint communique signed by the other G-7 member countries, after Trudeau had said all countries signed it, and appeared to threaten more tariffs against Canada.

 

The Canadian leader had said at a press conference that his country wouldn’t be “pushed around” by the U.S. over Trump’s recent decision to impose stiff tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the nation.
