Vermont officials fret as Trump feuds with Trudeau

While foreign policy issues such as North Korea do not usually have much bearing on the polls, Mr Trump's outburst against Nato allies, the European Union and Canada appeared aimed at striking a chord with voters who support his America First agenda.

The foreign affairs minister spoke to reporters in Ottawa and offered a markedly different tone from the attacks lobbed at Canada, one of the United States' closest allies, this weekend by President Trump and other members of his administration.

The president said he was annoyed by Trudeau's comments about not letting Canada get pushed around.

The scene was captured in a photo during the G7 summit, and the seemingly tense moment did not go unnoticed.

However, Ms. May did not respond when Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn asked her to condemn "the comments of President Trump's trade adviser saying that, and I quote, there's a special place in hell for Justin Trudeau?".

What did Trudeau and Trump say?

Navarro and Trump's chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, took to the television talk show circuit Sunday to reinforce Trump's message. In striking such a hostile tone against one of the oldest and closest US allies, Navarro said Tuesday he was emboldened to send a "strong signal of strength" on the eve of the landmark summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

A Trudeau spokesman, Cameron Ahmad, said on Saturday night that Mr Trudeau "said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public and in private conversations" with Mr Trump.

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.

Diplomatic sources tell CNN that once the final language was agreed upon, it was seen as an achievement since the discussions with Trump were "very intense" and "difficult".

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer also had a call scheduled with Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland to discuss NAFTA renegotiation.

He called Mr Trudeau "dishonest & weak" after Mr Trudeau said at a news conference that Canada would retaliate for new U.S. tariffs. "Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!"

"We should review that in the context of a president who's clearly abusing the national security category as a justification for imposing tariffs", Welch said.

Hashtag #Eyebrowgate trended and soon, Trudeau's Eyebrows even had their own Twitter account.

Liberal MP and former dairy farmer Wayne Easter said there was a real sense of panic building in his P.E.I. riding over the implications of Trump's pronouncements following his departure from the G7 gathering. "Obviously, we don't want to be held hostage to these tariffs Donald Trump has arbitrarily put in place, but there are other things that we would like to see in terms of advancing the free trade agenda".
