President Donald Trump said Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's comments at the G-7 summit Saturday criticizing the US were "a mistake" that will "cost him a lot of money".

Trump made his comments in a wide-ranging news conference in Singapore following his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump quickly fired back on Twitter, calling Trudeau's statement "very dishonest and weak" and claiming the prime minister had been "meek and mild" at the G-7 summit.

Soon after Trump left the G7 summit he tweeted that he had instructed the House of Representatives not to endorse the final communique of the G7 summit due to Trudeau's "false statements at his news conference", as the Canadian prime minister dismissed USA metal tariffs as "insulting" and announced retaliatory measures.

"When I got on to the plane, I think that Justin probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions", Trump said.

U.S. President Donald Trump's tweet storm after the G7 summit prompted support for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau from some prominent conservatives.

Trump said the global leaders left the G-7 meeting in good spirits, and said he had agreed to sign the meeting's summary document.

On Monday, MPs in the House of Commons approved a motion denouncing Trump's name-calling tirade and endorsing Trudeau's decision to stand his ground against US tariffs and tweeted presidential threats. John McCain who responded with a very different message for US allies: "Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't".


"We support the continuing efforts by the president on North Korea, (and) we look forward to looking at the details of the agreement", Trudeau said.

Trump went on to lambast fellow members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) for paying disproportionately less than the United States to maintain the Western alliance. "I don't know what it might be, but the message that the president sent was so strong to one of our allies that I really don't understand why they would do that unless he truly felt that there had been a violation of trust".

"Wisconsin's congressional delegation and the rest of Congress should demand the president stop slapping tariffs on American imports, which will result in retaliatory fees on vital state exports", the State Journal editorial board wrote. "This I've never seen before, nor has anyone else", Mulroney said.

The president also withdrew USA support for a G-7 communique. "$800 billion trade deficit", he said.

"They can continue to have a supply management system, but they can't have the incredibly high tariffs and other barriers and manoeuvres that they do to deal with the problems that are created by the supply management system", Vilsack said. "But actually we were just talking, the whole group, about something unrelated to everything, very friendly".

The president's staff then blasted Trudeau on Sunday with economic advisor Larry Kudlow accusing Canada of stabbing the U.S.in the back.

"There are more jobs now posted than there are people looking for work in the United States, and we've cut immigration pretty substantially", he said, noting that the country's birth rate is low.
