President Donald Trump delivered a stern warning on trade to foreign countries at the Group of Seven summit on Saturday, advising trading partners not to retaliate against US tariffs on the imports of steel and aluminum.
Trump also tweeted that Trudeau had acted "so meek and mild" during their meetings and that his tough talk later is "dishonest & weak".
