"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," Navarro told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday."

"That's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference. That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One," he continued. "To my friends in Canada, that was one of worst political miscalculations of a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history."

Trudeau announced on Saturday that all members of the Group of Seven (G-7) had reached an agreement at the weekend's summit in Charlevoix, Canada.

Hours later, Trump slammed the Canadian leader, declaring that the U.S. would not sign the G-7's joint communique and threatening to impose further tariffs on the country.

"Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!" the president said in a tweet.

Trudeau's office pushed back on Trump's announcement, saying the prime minister had been consistent with Trump during the summit.

"The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the President," the Prime Minister's Office said in a statement.

'Real Time' Reimagines Donald Trump and Justin Trudeau as 'Goofus and Gallant' (Video)For those of you who didn't grow up on "Highlights," the storied kids' mag features an educational comic strip called "Goofus and Gallant," in which the bad/lazy/mean actions of "Goofus" are contrasted against the good/brave/generous actions of "Gallant." For instance, "Goofus takes the last apple. Gallant shares his orange." The moral: be more like Gallant, kids.
