Top economic advisors for President Trump fired off on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau arguing he had intentionally undermined President Trump ahead of the G7 summit.

As reported by thehill.com

President Trump’s top economic advisers mounted scathing attacks against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during appearances on the Sunday talk show circuit, arguing he had undermined Trump’s standing ahead of his talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Trudeau’s comments at a press conference after the Group of Seven (G-7) summit amounted to a “betrayal,” while Peter Navarro, a Trump trade official, declared there was a “special place in hell” for foreign leaders who double-cross Trump.

The stunning remarks widened a rift on trade policy between the United States and Canada, which has joined the European Union and Mexico in blasting Trump’s decision to impose tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum.

The latest condemnation of Trudeau followed Trump’s decision to not sign a G-7 communique after a weekend meeting of seven major industrialized economies, a group of traditional U.S. allies.
