Canadians Strike Back: Former Diplomat Urges Boycott of Firms Working With Trump

Leaders pose for family

Trudeau had said Canadians "are polite, we're reasonable, but also we will not be pushed around".

Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un converged on this island city state Sunday ahead of one of the most unusual and highly anticipated summits in recent world history, a sit-down Tuesday morning meant to settle a stand-off over Pyongyang's nuclear arsenal. "I would say to Maxime, just put a lid on it while we deal with this unprecedented attack from Donald Trump", Mr. Angus said.

Trudeau, in Quebec City for bilateral meetings with non-G7 leaders after the summit, did not respond to reporter questions as he arrived, but his office pointed to Freeland as the minister responsible for Canada-U.S. relations.

Trudeau promised to fight back by slapping his own tariffs on American goods.

Mr. Trump's top economic adviser, Lawrence Kudlow, said Mr. Trudeau's press conference had been a "betrayal" because Mr. Trump couldn't afford to show any weakness before his meeting with North Korea. If this is how Trump treats his closest allies, why would Kim Jong Un believe anything he hears at the negotiating table this week, especially after Trump has already pulled America out of existing global agreements?

Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel talks with U.S. President Donald Trump at the G7 Summit.

The prime minister gave some hint of the tensions on show at the gathering in Canada last week as she revealed leaders expressed "deep disappointment" at the United States president's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.

Ethiopia PM meets Sisi as Egypt seeks mutual cooperation

In his news conference, Trudeau had spoken of retaliatory measures that Canada would take next month in response to Trump's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

NDP MP Charlie Angus said it is not the time for Canada to give into threats from the US administration on supply management. Trump views the United States trade deficit - with any country, friend or foe - as the problem rather than China as the unique commercial and geo-strategic competitor.

Trump's favorite USA network Fox News invited Canada's outspoken former conservative prime minister Stephen Harper, usually a reliable Trudeau critic, to discuss the crisis.

If these goods that originate in Canada and are eventually sold there without have been substantially worked upon in the United States are taken into account then Ottawa comes out the victor.

Mr. Trump's actions led to an extraordinary juxtaposition: an abrupt public feud and deterioration of ties between the USA and Canada at the same moment as warm words and a detente between the US and North Korea. On Twitter he accused Trudeau of "false statements" and wrote that he had ordered his aides to withdraw USA endorsement of the joint communique. "Why should I, as President of the United States, allow countries to continue to make Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our farmers, workers and taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay?" he tweeted. If Trump can turn his sputtering rage on Canada - Canada! - what is to stop him from returning to his Little Rocket Man taunts and tearing up whatever agreement may come this week after he's collected his Nobel Peace Prize and John Bolton is spoiling for war?
