Trudeau also said Canada would move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1 in response to tariffs on steel and aluminium imports into the United States from Canada, Mexico and European Union (EU) countries announced by Trump on May 31.

US President Donald Trump issued a volley of tweets on Monday venting anger on some of Washington's closest North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over the United State's trade deficit, following a divisive G7 meeting in Canada.

He added that EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker thanks Trudeau "for the excellent preparation and chairing of this challenging summit". - "Let's be clear: These tariffs are totally unacceptable..."

"This week started with @realDonaldTrump boosting a Chinese company identified as a national security threat to the U.S. It ended with him standing up for Russian Federation and alienating our allies at the G7".

And Roland Paris, a former foreign policy adviser to Trudeau, jabbed Mr. Trump on Twitter: "Big tough guy once he's back on his airplane". Highly restrictive on Trade! How long will it take to figure out whether or not they're serious?

The group of seven nations that make up the G7 are Canada, France, the United States, the UK, Germany, Japan and Italy. "Do Timber & Lumber in US?"

Trudeau promised to fight back by slapping his own tariffs on American goods.

European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said the EU "stands fully behind" the joint statement issued at the end of the G-7 meeting at a resort town in Quebec. Canada has all sorts of trade barriers on our Agricultural products. By the time I finish trade talks, that will change. $800 Billion Trade Deficit.

The president also tweeted from aboard Air Force One that due to "Justin's false statements" the USA would not sign on with the other six members of the G-7 to a joint communique that was to follow the meeting.

"According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with United States (guess they were bragging and got caught!). Look forward to seeing them tomorrow".

The president also repeated claims that Canada overtaxes American dairy products under its supply management system and complained about Canadian automobiles entering the USA market. "When I'm telling them, they're smiling at me. Not fair to our farmers!"

"Ultimately that's what you want", the president said at a news conference in Charlevoix. We're like the piggybank that everybody is robbing.

The remarks apparently upset Trump, who had left the conference early to travel to Singapore for a highly anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

It's a startling attack on the leader of the USA neighbor and ally. "After many decades, fair and reciprocal Trade will happen!"

The US blamed Canada on Sunday for the disastrous ending to the G7 summit, saying Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "stabbed us in the back", while American allies held Washington responsible.

The communique was supposed to illustrate shared ground between the US, Germany, the UK, Canada, France, Italy and Japan following Mr Trump's imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow also said Sunday that Trudeau "really kind of stabbed us in the back".
