He said the move was based on Mr Trudeau's "false statements. and the fact that Canada is charging massive tariffs to our USA farmers, workers and companies".

Mr. Trump's tweets taking aim at the leader of a country that has always been a U.S. ally came after the President left the G7 summit in Canada to travel to Singapore ahead of a planned diplomatic meeting with North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un, CNN reported.

Leaders from Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, the European Union and Japan attended a tense meeting this past Friday and Saturday at the G7 summit.

"I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests", Trudeau said.

The fight isn't just with Trudeau and Canada but with the best allies of the U.S., Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein of California said on CNN.

"It's going to change", he said.

Kudlow repeatedly charged Trudeau with the "betrayal" of Trump and other leaders of the G-7.
