Trudeau said after the G-7 meeting that the aluminum and steel tariffs imposed by the USA on Canada on national security grounds were insulting and that "Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

Trump has consistently been against what he considers unfair trade practices from America's biggest trade partners, which includes Canada, Mexico, and the European Union.

The Dairy Farmers of Canada lobby group, which had earlier voiced the suspicion Trudeau might try to sell them out, met the prime minister for 25 minutes on Tuesday and said he had reassured them of his backing.

Trump issued a statement on Tuesday in which he promised Trudeau's statements would end up costing Canada "a lot of money".

"Justin probably didn't know that Air Force has about 20 televisions", Trump said.

Heyman added he's "of course ... embarrassed" about Trump's behavior during the G-7 meeting, arguing the United States "was doing everything it could do to disrupt this meeting".

A day before, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow also lashed out at Mr Trudeau. "Kim must not see American weakness". The ire directed at the prime minister by Trump and his advisors had confused some trade observers since the comments seemed to be just a reiteration of what the prime minister had said previously and not a personal insult.

U.S. President Donald Trump says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's assertion that Canada "will not be pushed around" will end up costing Canadians "a lot of money".
