In an interview Sunday on German public television, Merkel also says European leaders won't be "taken advantage of" on trade.
"Canada has been restrained throughout in dealing with a temperamental president and I think all the way through we've avoided rising to provocation and tried to deal with the facts", said McKenna. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did".
Trump pulled out of endorsing a joint communique after the G7 meet finished on Saturday with the United States president accusing Trudeau, the summit's chairman, of dishonesty. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.

For his comments, Trump fired back on Twitter, stating, "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers". Trump said it was snapped as they waited for changes he'd requested to the communique, which he ended up pulling out of.
"And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference. Kim must not see American weakness". "He's a pathetic little man-child".
At issue are USA tariffs against Canada and Trudeau's effort to retaliate against its neighbor - as well as Trudeau's comment to reporters that all seven leaders had come together to sign a joint declaration after the G-7 meeting.
Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said on Sunday in response to questions about Kudlow and Navarro's comments that she is thankful she is "not responsible for explaining the reasoning behind any comments made by the officials of any foreign government".
"I'm very proud of how, not only of our government but also opposition parties and premiers, business communities and civil society have all piled in on the same side in trying to negotiate a very hard situation".
In response, Macron said in a statement France would stand by the G-7 joint communiqué - which includes a pledge by the seven leading industrialized democracies to "continue to fight protectionism" - despite Trump's refusal.
The motion in parliament, introduced by the opposition New Democrats, rejected "disparaging ad hominem statements by USA officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations". "You want a tariff-free [arrangement]".
