Trump in hot waters for lashing back at Canada after G7 summit

Trump in hot waters for lashing back at Canada after G7 summit

On June 7 - the eve of Trudeau's G7 summit - Trump sends out another missive - "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 us up to 300% on dairy - hurting our Farmers, killing our Agriculture!"

President Trump tweeted Sunday night from Singapore attacking US allies over the trade deficit.

"Here's the thing", Kudlow said, "he really kind of stabbed us in the back".

Trudeau fires back on May 31 over the tariffs being applied on the premise Canada poses a national security threat to the U.S.

President Trump is lashing out at Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over trade issues.

British Prime Minister Theresa May also went out of her way to thank Trudeau "for his leadership and skillful chairing" of what she called "a hard summit with at times some very candid discussions".

Minnesota trade experts say the Trump tariffs set a bad precedent.

Larry Kudlow, Trump's chief economic adviser, told CNN that Trudeau's press conference addressing Trump's actions was "a betrayal".

"He was talking about the US tariffs", CBS host Margaret Brennan said.

Once arrested a day later, Cheeks told cops that she put the kids in the kennels because she had run out of space in the auto . Authorities say a Memphis woman was arrested after video showed her transporting two children in pet kennels.

Still, other Trump advisers had taken up the attack in appearances on Sunday's news shows, leveling more withering and unprecedented criticism against Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time. Navarro later clarified that his comments were "the sentiment that was on Air Force One after that".

The G7's other attendees fear a looming trade war over the Trump administration's move to impose steep tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada and Mexico.

- Following Trump's departure from the G7 summit, Trudeau says in a press conference that he told the US president that his steel and aluminum tariffs were "kind of insulting", that Canada "will not be pushed around" and that it would not hesitate to impose retaliatory measures. Free Trade Agreement and the North American Free Trade Agreement were negotiated - said the Canadian side must not let static from the White House distract from the more serious business of negotiating a new NAFTA. Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%.

"But nearly everybody has said either they're going to do it, or they support it".

Updating the House of Commons on the G7 summit on her return from Canada, Mrs May said: "This was a hard summit with, at times, some very candid discussions".

In a pointed criticism of Trump's policy, May said that the most effective way of reaping the benefits of globalisation was through multilateral action, adding: "It can not be done by taking unilateral action against your partners".

Merkel, whose office over the weekend released a photo of leaders and aides which illustrates the divide between Trump and his allies, said she had "tried hard to find a compromise and we fought hard for it. this was an important announcement".

And it concludes with a direct shot at Trump, calling on the House to "reject disparaging and ad hominem statements by US officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute".
