Fast facts on Trump's clash with allies over trade

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May told MPs that the G7 had been

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

Canada's limited options mean "there is no magical Plan B", said University of Ottawa worldwide affairs professor Patrick Leblond. "On the contrary, as part of the USA law, we are part of the national defense base of the United States". With less trade all around and higher prices for goods and services, the economy suffers and everyone loses. They must open their markets and take down their trade barriers! May paid tribute to Mr. Trudeau for "his leadership and skillful chairing" of the G7 and added that the United Kingdom "fully intends to honour the commitments we have made" in the final communiqué. "Do Timber & Lumber in US?"

Describing the U.S. tariffs on European steel and aluminium as "unjustified", she left no doubt that EU nations would impose counter-measures on USA goods in response but cautioned against tit-for-tat retaliation which might lead to a trade war. Canada and Mexico are also taking action. Or, it may be that Trump has taken an unpopular position against the status quo at the right time, in the right place, leading to change for the better. Big trade barriers against US farmers, and other businesses, will finally be broken. "Massive trade deficits no longer!"

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said. Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%.

John McCain who responded with a very different message for US allies: "Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't". According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with USA (guess they were bragging and got caught!). "Look forward to seeing them tomorrow".

The war of words escalated following Trump's departure from the summit, as he expressed displeasure with Trudeau's remarks on the unfairness of USA tariffs, and Canada's determination to not be pushed around. "Not fair to our farmers!" And tariffs are going to come way down, because people can not continue to do that. We're like the piggybank that everybody is robbing.

Deal done: Watford complete permanent signing of Gerard Deulofeu from Barcelona
On Monday, Watford chief executive Scott Duxbury insisted the move shows the club are constantly striving to improve. Deulofeu then joined Barcelona again after impressing on loan at San Siro, playing 17 times under Ernesto Valverde.

Mr Trump's looming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un heightened tension, and White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Mr Trudeau of betraying Mr Trump with "polarising" statements on trade policy that risked making the U.S. leader look weak on the eve of the historic North Korea summit.

In response to the initial tweets critical of her country and prime minister, Canada's foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, said her nation "does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks". "The Bernie Sanders element of the Democratic Party doesn't stand for free trade. After many decades, fair and reciprocal Trade will happen!"

Trudeau announced on Saturday that all G7 members had endorsed the joint communique; however, he noted that the USA tariffs are "insulting" and Canada "will not be pushed around".

Following his departure from the summit Saturday evening, Trump tweeted that Trudeau was "Very dishonest & weak" during the summit, drawing criticism from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, including Arizona Republican Sen.

Trade adviser Peter Navarro told "Fox News Sunday" that "there is a special place in hell for any leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy" with Trump. "He did a great disservice to the whole G7".

U.S. President Donald Trump's spat with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shows no signs of abetting, with Trump continuing to tweet his annoyance at Trudeau's response to trade tariffs even after landing in Singapore, where he is due to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
