Michael Hayden, the former CIA Director under President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama, blasted President Trump Monday as "unstable" following his actions at the G7 summit in Canada this weekend.

Immediately after his remarks Saturday, Trump blasted Trudeau's statement as "dishonest & weak" on Twitter and announced the USA would not be signing the joint G7 communique - a symbolic but unprecedented move.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Trudeau of betraying Trump with "polarizing" statements on trade policy that risked making the USA leader look weak ahead of the historic summit with Kim. At one point he wrote, "Justin acts hurt when called out!"

The US president tweeted on Monday: "Great to be in Singapore, excitement in the air!"

"First of all, we'll try and see if we can prevent this".

As well, she said the government should accelerate work on its Plan B in the event that Trump blows up NAFTA or follows through on threats to impose tariffs on autos and auto parts - a move Ambrose said would be devastating to Canada's economy. Addressing reporters in Singapore ahead of Trump's summit Tuesday with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Pompeo said he was "unconcerned" that Trump's treatment of Canada - a close ally - boded poorly for his ability to forge peace with a longtime US adversary.

The verbal volleys by Navarro and Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, picked up where Trump had left off Saturday evening. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.


Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland was measured Sunday, saying only that "Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries".

"What I saw Prime Minister Trudeau say was, I thought, fairly benign and certainly didn't warrant any attack".

"We should review that in the context of a president who's clearly abusing the national security category as a justification for imposing tariffs", Welch said.

Mr Trudeau and the European Union have vowed to take retaliatory action next month over United States tariffs on steel and aluminium.

The prime minister said although retaliation "is not something I relish doing", he would not hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests".

Later during the show, Smith further said Trump's latest attitude towards Trudeau isn't a new thing and he has "been kicking allies in the teeth his whole presidency". In fact, the Trump administration's concerns about Canadian trade centre on relatively insignificant concerns, such as the treatment of United States dairy products.

One particular source of his ire recently has been Canada's supply management system, which levels tariffs of up to 300 per cent on imported dairy products.
