Trump takes more swipes at Canada and Trudeau after tense G7 summit

Trump told Macron EU worse than China on trade

"All Mr. Trudeau was doing, in a rather gentle way, was articulating the position of his government, which would be the position of any Canadian government in these circumstances", he said, adding that the counter-tariffs make sense. But the trolled Prime Minister had his staunch supporters too.

She said United States concerns that some countries were "not playing by the rules" when it came to global trade could not be ignored but they must be addressed multilaterally, for instance through reform of the World Trade Organisation. "This is about our economy and millions and millions of jobs". And we should always be looking for better deals for our workers, consumers and manufacturers in our trade deals. Among other things, she said the government should be preparing to keep pace with corporate tax cuts and tax breaks south of the border.

"Prime Minister Trudeau is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the USA and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things. but he doesn't bring up the fact that they charge up to 300 percent on dairy - hurting our Farmers, killing our Agriculture!"

He added: "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did and that comes right from Air Force One. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" "So he holds a press conference - the president is barely out of there on the plane to North Korea, and he starts insulting us, he starts talking about the U.S.is insulting Canada", Kudlow said. They accused Trudeau of betraying Trump and stabbing him in the back.

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.

He also asked why he should allow countries to amass "Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our Farmers, Workers & Taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay?"

Trudeau said at the news conference that while the G-7 meeting was "very successful", Canada could impose retaliatory tariffs on US products.

"We commit to modernize the WTO to make it more fair as soon as possible".

After some intense discussion, Justin Trudeau was desperately trying to hammer out a Communique proclaiming the G7 a success with some common ground. In London, Mayor Sadiq Khan said he hoped Trump would reconsider policies such as the recent increase in tariffs on steel and aluminum from Europe, China, Mexico, Canada and elsewhere. "They surely can not be that upset about what the prime minister said", according to a second Canadian official.

Trump's stinging critique - while technically accurate - obscures the larger trade relationship between the two countries.

"The only people capable of persuading Trump to stop this are in the United States, but they have not hit anything like top gear", said one person close to the matter.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland had responded to the White House comments by saying that Canada will retaliate to USA tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way and that Canada will always be willing to talk.
