Strong polemics has erupted between the US and its G7 allies, just some hours after the just concluded annual G7 summit in Canada.
President Trump had earlier lashed out at the Prime Minister Trudeau of the Summit’s host nation. Two other advisers of President Trump also issued verbal attack on PM Trudeau saying he was using “bad faith diplomacy “.
Donald Trump later tweeted he would no longer be endorsing the G7 joint communique.
Trumps statement of retracting his endorsement has been faced with several rebukes mainly from Germany and France.
The US government had earlier imposed tariff on aluminium and steel on its allies and Europe, an action that has seen several retaliatory moves and threats from the affected nations.
Larry Kudlow, Trump’s top economic adviser also reacted to Trudeau’s statement, “He really kind of stabbed us in the back,” Mr Kudlow said.
Peter Navarro said “There is a special place in Hell for any 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.”
President Macron of France reacted to Donald Trump’s decision saying “Let’s be serious and worthy of our people. We make commitments and keep to them,” (as quoted by AFP news agency)
German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said: “In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters.”
