In the same set of tweets, Trump said: "Justin acts hurt when called out!" They didn't want me to see it, but we found it. We just shook hands. "That's going to cost him a lot of money".

Mr Trump said: "If they retaliate they are making a mistake". "You can't do that".

The relationship between the USA and its allies was already off-balance after Mr. Trump just a week before the summit imposed 25% tariffs on steel and 10% tariffs on aluminum from the European Union and Canada.

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

"I actually like Justin, you know, I think he's good, I like him, but he shouldn't have done that", Trump said. "It's very unfair, and it's very unfair to our workers, and I'm gonna straighten it out". "We are very measured".

Mr Trudeau did not respond to questions about Mr Trump when the prime minister arrived at a Quebec City hotel on Sunday for meetings with other world leaders, though Mr Freeland later told reporters that "we don't think that's a useful or productive way to do business".

"He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea, nor should he", Kudlow said.

Interested in Donald Trump?

"My job was to send a signal of strength. The problem is that in conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate". "I mean seriously, Russia, who took over Crimea, all the violence that's taken place in Ukraine, the poisoning of people in the United Kingdom, the influence in our election this last time period", Heyman recounted.

What did Navarro say Tuesday?

"The comment was a bit over the top", Corker said.

Mr. Navarro took flak from all sides for the comment.

Not all US officials have joined Messrs.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, said, "I thought he should've kept his big mouth shut".

The only hint of a softening came when Peter Navarro, the White House economic advisor, apologized for saying there was a "special place in hell" for Trudeau.

Within minutes of the official release of the document, Trump attacked Trudeau online over what he described as the prime minister's "false statements" during the closing news conference - and the president announced the USA would no longer endorse the communique.

However, the office of the U.S. Trade Representative has said the United States ran an $8.4 billion trade surplus with Canada in 2017.

"It's very unfair to our farmers, and it's very unfair to the people of our country", Trump said Tuesday in Singapore.

"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.
