"All Justin Trudeau had to do was take the win".

Social media are abuzzzzz with the question. "@realdonaldtrump announces new tariffs on fake eyebrows!" he wrote.

You've heard of politicians raising eyebrows, but this is the first time the public has seen one lowering them - perhaps involuntarily.

What do YOU think?

Another WH condemnation of Justin Trudeau came from Larry Kudlow, the president's top economic adviser.

"The actual fact that we will have these discussions is good for our countries and good for the world", Trudeau said, noting that there were other matters at stake besides trade, including ensuring global security and advancing gender equality.

Kudlow's and Navarro's comments come on the heels of a tense G7 summit that left relations with US allies even more fractured than before.

Trudeau said at a news conference Saturday that he was disappointed in the Trump administration's action to impose tariffs on aluminum and steel imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union. "I've been called worse things by better people", said the elder Trudeau.

There were two crucial points that didn't satisfy the United States delegation, the Canadian media points out.

"We finished the meeting, really everybody was happy, and I agreed to sign something", Trump said.


President Trump told the group of seven leaders during the summit that the US wanted a quick end to trade practices, and that the country would no longer be a "piggy bank" for the world to rob. A senior United States administration official said that Trump had been angered by Trudeau's comments.

Two points of the joint communique formulated by the G7 members were not negotiated with the U.S. president, but that didn't prevent the Canadian prime minister from announcing that all member-states had reached common ground on the final statement. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One". Not just double-crossing President Trump, but other members of the G-7, " Kudlow said.

"He did him a favor", Navarro said. And what did Trudeau do as soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace?

Trump's chief economic adviser said the United States pulled out of supporting the communique because the president was enraged by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Presumably, as Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale pointed out on Twitter, Kudlow was upset that Trudeau's comments could hurt Trump's chances of impressing Kim Jong Un ahead of his meeting with the North Korean dictator in Singapore this week.

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is a deal signed by Canada, Mexico, and the U.S., creating a trilateral trade bloc in North America.

President Donald Trump attacked America's closest allies in tweets after leaving the meeting in Canada.

The Prime Minister's Office did release a statement late Saturday, following Trump's tweets, that said: "We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the G7 summit". Does he wear the makeup in the family? He has to wear more makeup than his wife.

On Sunday, Trudeau the younger demurred even more, choosing instead to send out messages of his own about democracy, women's empowerment and the environment.
