President Trump started his day in Singapore on Monday where he blasted the Canadian Prime Minister and slammed North Atlantic Treaty Organisation just after meeting with the U.S. allies at the G7 in Quebec.
"Why should I, as President of the United States, allow countries to continue to make Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our Farmers, Workers & Taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay?" he tweeted. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" he said.
Saying Trudeau is "dishonest & weak", he threatened "tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!"
Trump also called Trudeau "dishonest and weak", an insult Navarro repeated in his appearance Sunday.
I left before the end of the summit to embark on a marathon journey from Canada to Singapore. "I was talking about disillusionment, which is a lot for me already". But lo, by the time I landed in Hong Kong to change flights I read that there was a joint communique.
Prior to the meeting, a White House official has told the Washington Post that Trump was contemplating not signing the statement but "in the end what Trump did seemed significantly pettier" says Vox, claiming he chose to take his support back because Trudeau pledged to follow through on earlier promises to retaliate against USA tariffs at a press conference after he left.
What has Trump said now?
President Donald Trump tweeted out more criticism of USA trade partners Monday, including allies in Europe and Canada, adding to his declarations that the United States will no longer tolerate what he has called "trade abuse".
"We protect Europe (which is good) at great financial loss, and then get unfairly clobbered on Trade", he said.

Asked whether allies had any reason to worry about Trump's commitment to any deal he reaches with North Korea following his abrupt withdrawal from the G7 communique, one USA official appeared to brush aside the notion, saying other countries have got used to how the president operates internationally.
In a news conference after the summit, the Canadian leader had reasserted his opposition to the USA tariffs, and vowed to press ahead with retaliatory moves on 1 July.
"As Canadians, we are polite, we're reasonable, but also we will not be pushed around,"Trudeau said".
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.
Other G7 partners also seemed stunned by Mr Trump's reaction, and pledged to support the communique.
The situation only got messier from there, particularly in the leadup to, during and right after the G7 leaders' summit.
French President Emmanuel Macron said global co-operation could not be "dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks". "Let's be serious", the French official, speaking on condition of anonymity, added. "We make commitments and keep them", the presidency said, adding that "France and Europe maintain their support for this (G7) statement".
Larry Kudlow, director of the U.S. National Economic Council, said on CNN that Trudeau engaged in "betrayal" and "stabbed us in the back".
Freeland reiterated that Canada would retaliate to United States tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way, adding the country would always be willing to talk.
Peter Navarro, another top counselor, abandoned any semblance of decorum, suggesting "there is a special place in hell" for Trudeau.
