Trump adviser says there’s a ‘special place in hell’ for Canadian leader

The View From Canada: G7 Summit, Tariffs And Trade

"And for God's sake doing it against Canada after the prime minister issued a fairly mild statement about the Canadians just standing their ground". "I've been called worse things by better people", said the elder Trudeau.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland responded to the White House assault by saying ad hominem attacks were not helpful, that Canada would retaliate to United States tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way and that Canada would always be willing to talk.

The situation only got messier from there, particularly in the leadup to, during and right after the G7 leaders' summit.

Trudeau had announced that the G7 members - Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the US - had agreed upon a joint communiqué, or formal statement, after a hard week on trade issues.

He further said that throughout the summit, the United States tried negotiating with Trudeau in "good faith", but the Canadian President undermined the United States and its allies.

Trump's closest advisers added to the attack during televised interviews on Sunday.

Kudlow said Trump "is not going to let a Canadian prime minister push him around" ahead of his high-stakes summit this week with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", said Trump, who flew from Canada to Singapore on Sunday to prepare for the first-ever summit between a US and North Korean leader. "He did a great disservice to the whole G7", Kudlow said. Trudeau made an error.

USA trade advisor Peter Navarro, speaking on "Fox News Sunday", reinforced that message.

Who won in the Trump-Kim summit?
During the summit in Singapore on Tuesday, Kim said there are possibilities for him to meet with Abe, according to the source. Independent experts say the North could have enough fissile material for between about a dozen and 60 nuclear bombs.

North Korea praises Donald Trump's 'enthusiasm' after historic summit
It wouldn't be easy to expect that North Korea would give up its nuclear programme and stockpiles. Pompeo, after landing in South Korea , met for almost an hour with Gen.

Trump adviser Peter Navarro, meanwhile, said Tuesday he made a mistake when he said "there's a special place in hell" for Trudeau.

"It would be with regret, but it would be with absolute certainty and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory tariffs measures on July 1 applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applied to us".

And Trudeau has certainly been among the leaders in that regard in recent days.

Freeland responded gently to the insults by Trump's advisers. The US president accused Trudeau of giving false statements at his news conference.

"Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Mr Trudeau said. "They have tariffs on certain dairy and food products - 290 [to] 295 percent".

Unbowed, Trump tweeted anew Monday morning from Singapore, repeating his criticism of US trade policies with Canada - he also took aim at Germany - in a multitweet rant that went beyond 200 words all told.

The attack on a longtime ally and its leader drew sharp criticism. John McCain and ex-FBI director James Comey - who Trump unceremoniously fired a year ago - took to Twitter to offer their support.

European G7 members expressed solidarity with Trudeau, as well as Republican Arizona Senator John McCain and ex-FBI director James Comey, who offered their support. He had other things, bigger things on his plate in Singapore, he said. The French presidency had earlier condemned "fits of anger".

"For Canadians who ... stood shoulder to shoulder with American soldiers in far-off lands and conflicts from the First World War onward.it's kind of insulting", Trudeau said. The likelihood of a trade war between the USA and Canada appears to be on the rise, and both sides are mulling more trade barriers.
