Key Donald Trump advisers attack ‘back stabber’ Justin Trudeau

Key Donald Trump advisers attack ‘back stabber’ Justin Trudeau”

We negotiate in good faith but we won't be pushed around. "We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", it said, reflecting the typical language of decades of G7 statements.

The analysts also are looking at the impact auto tariffs would have on the Canadian dollar and on overall competitiveness in the North American auto sector. I mean, we have India, where some of the tariffs are 100 percent.

Trump, who attended a G7 meeting in Quebec before heading to Singapore on Saturday, withdrew from a joint statement drafted by the global organization on trade.

President Trump unloaded on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau this week; slamming the "meek and mild" leader after he publicly criticized Trump's decision to slap hefty tariffs on his nation's exports.

On Friday, Trump called for Russian Federation to be added to the summit to restore it the G8, a statement that Nebraska Republican Sen.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow continued the war of words between the Trump administration and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday morning. And tariffs are going to come way down, because people can not continue to do that. "You don't get into a fight with a skunk".

Trudeau's office, in turn, said what the Canadian leader said on Saturday was nothing new.

The tit-for-tat dispute over US metals tariffs followed more than a year of tense and so far unsuccessful negotiations to renew NAFTA and a long and failed charm offensive by Trudeau and top Canadian officials to avoid Trump's trade ire. And, overall, the USA has an $8.4 billion surplus with Canada. Canada promptly announced a range of retaliatory tariffs to the tune of $16.6 billion.

The added challenge now, said the source, is to ensure a "professional" tone returns to those discussions.

He tweeted a few hours ago about the G7 meeting.

In response to Mr Trump's decision to withhold United States support for the summit conclusions, a senior United Kingdom government source said: "We stand by the commitments made in the G7 communique".

Along with steel and aluminum tariffs, and the possibility of new tariffs on the auto sector, Trudeau and Trump discussed the ongoing NAFTA negotiations. Mexico, Canada, China and others have treated them unfairly.

French President Emmanuel Macron's office also slammed Trump's decision to reject the official communique and denounced the USA president's negotiating tactics. Bob Corker has introduced legislation that would roll back the President's power to impose tariffs like the ones he introduced earlier this month on steel and aluminum on US allies, but Republican leaders don't appear eager to take it up even as an amendment to already-moving legislation.

Trump left Quebec before the G-7 summit had ended to head to Singapore, ahead of a highly anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a longtime foe of the United States.

MPs speaking to The Canadian Press said they've heard from constituents who are anxious about the implications of Trump's assertions, and it's expected the weekend's war of words will be a focus during question period on Monday afternoon.

If President Trump is wrong, there are constitutional remedies.

It seems the true explanation for Trump's rhetorical attack on Trudeau is not Canadian tariffs or the content of the prime minister's news conference. And Ottawa looked to the new premier-elect in Ontario, Doug Ford, to offer his support - which he did without hesitation.
