"In terms of the approach that governments choose to take, Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries".

Unbowed, Trump tweeted anew Monday morning from Singapore, repeating his criticism of USA trade policies with Canada - he also took aim at Germany - in a multitweet rant that went beyond 200 words all told.

Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and the other leaders clashed with Trump over steel and aluminum tariffs as well as his decision to abandon a deal with Iran to limit its nuclear program.

Trade was a massive issue at this year's summit with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and President Trump butting heads.

Last week, Canada hit back at the Trump administration by announcing retaliatory tariffs on up to 16.6 billion Canadian dollars (12.8 billion USA dollars) worth of US steel and aluminum as well as a diverse list of other products.

"He made an error", Kudlow said on CNN's "State of the Union".

The White House says Trump will leave Singapore Tuesday, because the talks have "moved more quickly than expected". It initially was meant to rid the North of its weapons, to forge the "complete denuclearization" of the country.

The communique, which had appeared to have papered over the cracks that surfaced so uncharacteristically at the G7, said the leaders of the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan were agreed on the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism. "And I think we should have a reciprocal tax", the United States president said.

After leaving the summit Saturday, Trump announced that the USA was pulling back its endorsement of the G7 communique in part because of what he called "false statements" at a news conference by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"It's going to change", he said.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Navarro said, during an appearance on Fox news.

"He held a press conference and he said the U.S.is insulting". He also attacked Trudeau's character, calling the Liberal Party leader meek, weak and dishonest.

The meeting comes on the eve of a historic summit between Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

Merkel: EU will retaliate against Trump tariffs
And at the same time, the USA president seems more at home with autocrats than with Washington's traditional allies. On Thursday, the President declared the Canadian prime minister "indignant" on Twitter , decrying his trade views.

In response, Trump tweeted on his way to Singapore that he instructed US representatives not to endorse the communique.

The outburst against Mr Trudeau, and by association the other members of the G-7 group, is only the latest incident in which Mr Trump has clashed with America's closest allies, even as he has had warm words for autocrats like Mr Kim and Russia's Vladimir Putin. "He can't do that".

Earlier, the White House escalated the initial tirade and levelled more withering and unprecedented criticism against Mr Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber unworthy of Mr Trump's time.

"Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal". "According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with USA (guess they were bragging and got caught!)".

In London, Mayor Sadiq Khan said he hoped Trump would reconsider policies such as the recent increase in tariffs on steel and aluminum from Europe, China, Mexico, Canada and elsewhere.

"Instead, we act then too".

According to Dontnod, the game helped it realize the scope of the Life is unusual universe and its relatable characters. Just over a year ago, Dontnod Entertainment revealed they were working on a new game in the Life Is Strange universe.

"I think the way this plays out is we end up with our trading partners responding in kind - a threat for a threat, a tariff for tariff", said Rod Hunter, a lawyer at Baker McKenzie and a former economic official on the National Security Council.
