Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's speech at the G7 summit, in which he rebuked President Trump and vowed to protect Canadian interests, has drawn comparisons to an iconic movie moment near and dear to the hearts of many a Hugh Grant fan.
Trump said the global leaders left the G-7 meeting in good spirits, and said he had agreed to sign the meeting's summary document.
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.
"Why should I, as President of the United States, allow countries to continue to make Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our Farmers, Workers & Taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay?" he wrote. "He didn't do that to my face, what's this all about?'" "Canada will not be pushed around by his circus thug bluster", said Charlie Angus of the New Democratic Party.
Immediately after his remarks Saturday, Trump blasted Trudeau's statement as "dishonest & weak" on Twitter and announced the USA would not be signing the joint G7 communique - a symbolic but unprecedented move.
Kudlow further called Kim as "crazy nuclear tyrant" as he urged the other members of G8 to support Trump.

Health officials are investigating a multistate salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon. The company is looking into whether products were sent to any additional stores or states.
"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada; he learned", Trump said wagging his finger. "You can't do that".
Without any resolution, Trudeau has promised to impose retaliatory tariffs on metals and a range of other USA products by Canada Day. For instance, Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs are expected to cause a drag on United States economic growth and result in a net loss of American jobs.
Wherever Trump is getting his figures from, his aggressive personal attacks and determination to torpedo a prestigious world summit on Canadian soil have done nothing to head of the threat of trade war.
Trump's tough rhetoric for the leader of Canada, one of the United States' closest allies, was in sharp contrast with the words he chose to describe Kim.
President Trump, meanwhile, was not as kind, accusing Trudeau of "false statements" in a tweet.
BRITAIN will continue to work for global agreement on trade and security after a "difficult" G7 summit, Theresa May told the Commons yesterday.
"I know my colleagues are hearing from numerous businesses and manufacturers across the country very similar stories, that this trade dispute is probably two weeks away from affecting Canadians in a very real way", he said.
