President Donald Trump is still angry at Justin Trudeau for a perceived slight during a speech by the Canadian prime minister following the G-7 meeting.

Trump explained the situation Tuesday when asked about the G-7 gathering at a press conference in Singapore following his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un:

"When I got out to the plane, I think that Justin probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions. And I see the television and he's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States and I say push him around? We just shook hands. It was very friendly ... No, I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau. I really did, other than he had a news conference, that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching. He learned. That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada. He learned. You can't do that. You can't do that."

Amid tensions, all G-7 members sign statement

  Amid tensions, all G-7 members sign statement Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says all countries attending the Group of Seven summit have signed a joint communique despite sharp trade tensions with the U.S. Trudeau says the U.S., Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Japan figured out "consensus language" they could all agree to.

Usually, a reporter’ s job goes something like this: New information emerges. We describe it, evaluating the accuracy and significance of that information. Story by story, truth accumulates. Say , for instance, a US president makes some remarks about his country’ s trade balance with Canada .

The comments Tuesday dashed hopes that Trump had moved on from what he believed to be was a "dishonest" action by Trudeau. 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.

Trudeau said after the G-7 meeting that the aluminum and steel tariffs implemented by the U.S. 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 then tweeted Saturday evening, "PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, 'US Tariffs were kind of insulting' and he 'will not be pushed around.' Very dishonest & weak."

Larry Kudlow on Justin Trudeau: 'It was a betrayal'

  Larry Kudlow on Justin Trudeau: 'It was a betrayal' President Donald Trump's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Sunday accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of undermining the US and its allies with comments he made at the G7 summit. "It was a betrayal," Kudlow said on CNN's "State of the Union."Kudlow was speaking following the G7 summit in Canada on Saturday.

Trudeau has rightly said “there’ s a lot of room to grow” in this respect. This trip, with its blunders and scandals, is pretty much the opposite of how to achieve that growth. To order copies of Toronto Star articles, please go to : www.TorontoStarReprints.com.

The president also withdrew U.S. support for a G-7 communique.

The president's staff then blasted Trudeau on Sunday with economic advisor Larry Kudlow accusing Canada of stabbing the U.S. in the back. Trade adviser Peter Navarro told Fox News, "There's a special place in hell for any foreign 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."

"We are being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries," Trump said in Singapore Tuesday.

On Canada, Trump continued:

"We have a big trade deficit with Canada ... It's either 17 but could actually be 100 billion. You know they put out a document, I don't know if you saw it. They didn't want me to see it, but we found it. Perhaps they were trying to show the power they have. It's close to $100 billion a year loss with Canada. They don't take our farm products — many of them."

It's unclear what additional action the U.S. would take against Canada that will cost the country money as Trump threatened. The U.S. at the end of May imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum imports against Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

The U.S. and Canada are currently in the middle of renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement along with Mexico. The U.S. had a trade surplus with Canada of $8.4 billion last year, according to the Office of the United States Trade Representative. That figure adjusts to a $17.5 billion trade deficit when services are excluded, according to the USTR.
