Republicans Split, Democrats Aghast Over White House Tirade Against Trudeau

Trump told Macron EU worse than China on trade

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. It doesn't mean Trump will back down, says Packard, but the tweet could create leverage for other entities-Congress, the courts, perhaps the World Trade Organization-to challenge them.

And while she joined with Mr. Trudeau and other European leaders in opposing the US decision to slap import tariffs on steel and aluminum, she urged continued dialogue. However, he noted that the US tariffs are "insulting" and Canada "will not be pushed around".

"Yeah, I think that's certainly possible", says Packard.

"Also hockey is cool", he added.

Theresa May has admitted a "difficult" G7 summit - marked by Donald Trump tearing up a joint agreement and lashing out at other leaders - saw "very candid discussions".

G7 includes the seven leading industrialized countries of Britain, the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Canada.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro drove the message home in an extraordinary assault on a close U.S. ally and neighbour. "He did a whole disservice to the whole G-7".

"PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he 'will not be pushed around.' Very dishonest & weak", tweeted Trump.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Navarro told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday". Mr Trump said the move would protect domestic producers that were vital to United States security.

Responding to the prime minister, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn branded the G7 summit a "failure" as he piled the blame on the U.S. president.

Big-hearted Alexander-Arnold pays for young fan's England shirt
What an incredible season it's been for Trent Alexander-Arnold. "It's important to have those players around you". And that is a full week before England's first match of the final against Tunisia.

Last June, Twin Rivers Paper told the Trump administration that its April 2017 decision to impose stiff import duties on Canadian softwood put thousands of jobs in ME in jeopardy. "Kim must not see American weakness". "He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea, nor should he". "He can't do that".

But the trolled Prime Minister had his staunch supporters too. One of its early tweets read: numerous jokes were directed at the XX-year-old Canadian President, who bore the brunt of a twitter attack from President Trump and his White House advisers.

The issue of trade was the most controversial heading into the G7 summit in La Malbaie, Que., with Trump launching multiple barbs in Canada's direction in the days leading up to his arrival. The president also repeated claims that Canada overtaxes American dairy products under its supply management system and complained about Canadian automobiles flooding the USA market.

Canadian politicians of all stripes rallied round their prime minister on Monday after his cautious and polite defense of free trade rules drew an extraordinary personal rebuke from US President Donald Trump.

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?"

The president may be pursuing policies that undermine the Western alliance, empower Russian Federation and China, and demoralize freedom-seeking people around the world, but they enable him to direct a middle finger at a world that no longer respects American power and privilege, Goldberg writes.

Corker's bill has garnered support from both sides of the aisle and has been endorsed by a variety of interest groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Retail Federation, and trade associations representing several manufacturing industries. U.S. Steel recently re-started an idle blast furnace plant in IL, bringing back 500 workers, following the first round of steel tariffs.

"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade anymore".

But, the United States president shot back with an attack on European nations' contributions to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, as he again espoused his "America First" slogan.
