"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Navarro said in an interview on "Fox News Sunday".

"Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries", Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said.

This year's annual G7 summit was marked by tensions and harsh words exchanged between President Donald Trump and other world leaders over trade.

He said of his decision to impose new tariffs, "I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing".

"Kim must not see American weakness", he told CNN.

The president's latest tirade comes after a war of words erupted between the U.S. and its G7 allies following Mr Trump's decision to reject a joint communique at the end of a tense summit in Quebec on Saturday.

Mr Trudeau, who had said at the news conference that Canada would retaliate over new United States tariffs, 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.

Trump was referring to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the tweet.

His tweet, shortly after leaving Charlevoix in Quebec, came in response to what he claimed were "false statements" by the summit host, Canadian premier Justin Trudeau. Can't do it in person.

Trump is scheduled to leave the contentious G7 summit four hours earlier than originally planned on Saturday to fly to Singapore for his June 12 meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. They accused Trudeau of betraying Trump and stabbing him in the back. "That will not stand".

The United States and Canada swung sharply towards a diplomatic and trade crisis on Sunday as top White House advisers lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a day after U.S. President Trump called him "very dishonest and weak". "Now, these are things that the prime minister said before, basically, but he didn't say them before (or) after a successful G7 communique, where President Trump and the others all worked in good faith to put a statement together, which, by the way, nearly nobody expected to happen".

Kudlow, the conservative economist who directs the National Economic Council, was upset with Trudeau's comments at a press conference after the contentious Group of 7 summit in Quebec.

President Trump proposed a major shakeup of the world's economic order during a summit in Canada this week, suggesting the world's big economies drop all tariffs and market-distoring subsidies and go to a fully free system of trade.

"Canada has already raised cases at the WTO and at NAFTA, and we will retaliate", she said.

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade", he added in response to the threat of new tariffs against the US. He reiterated his longstanding view that the USA has been taken advantage of in global trade, adding, "We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing, and that ends".

"The United States loses political influence in the rest of the world, and they also lose position as a centerpiece in efforts to find global joint mechanisms and set the agenda", said Solberg, who had been invited to attend the summit.
