US President Donald Trump has continued his personal attacks against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, tweeting that he “acts hurt when called out”.

Germany’s Angela Merkel said Mr Trump’s decision to reject a joint communique was “sobering” and “depressing”.

Mr Trump posted a string of tweets attacking the Canadian prime minister’s personality just hours after leaving the divisive meeting in Quebec.

“[He] acted so meek and mild,” he said. “Very dishonest and weak.”
