Trump slams Trudeau, says USA won’t endorse G7 communique

Trudeau said he had reiterated to Trump, who left the G-7 meeting before it ended, that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the US-Canada border.

According to the USTR, America counts Canadian goods that are shipped to regional trading hubs within the United States and then re-exported back to Canada or Mexico as US exports.

"For Canadians who ... stood shoulder to shoulder with American soldiers in far-off lands and conflicts from the First World War's kind of insulting", Trudeau said.

President Trump went on with his advisers and attacked Prime minister Justin Trudeau by using words like "betrayal" and "stab". Trump also tweets that he instructed USA officials not to endorse the joint communique agreed upon by G7 leaders.

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.

A boxing enthusiast who dons his gloves to work off the stress of the job in his rare free time, the Canadian prime minister will have to carefully measure his punches against the U.S. leader, who publicly accused him of weakness and dishonesty after the meeting of the G7 nations in Quebec at the weekend.

Canada does charge a 270 percent tariff on a limited number of dairy products. Trump and Navarro in ratcheting up tensions with Canada since the tariffs were announced at the end of May. "$800 Billion Trade Deficit ..." That is simply not true.

Conservative House Leader Candice Bergen says her party is united with the Liberals when it comes to defending Canada's trade interests. You know, he starts talking about insulting Canada.

"So at this summit, we expressed deep disappointment at the unjustified decision of the United States to apply tariffs to steel and aluminium imports". Canada's trade practices are hardly above reproach. Of course not; that does not exist.

"There are more jobs now posted than there are people looking for work in the United States, and we've cut immigration pretty substantially", he said, noting that the country's birth rate is low. "We make our commitments and keep them". In fact, completely the opposite is true, especially when we are treating our Canadian brothers and sisters like pariahs after we've had each other's backs for decades.

June 8 - On Day 1 of the summit, Trump jokes to reporters that "Justin has agreed to cut all tariffs, all trade barriers between Canada and the United States".

"According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with U.S. (guess they were bragging and got caught!)". Look forward to seeing them tomorrow.

The motion in parliament, introduced by the opposition New Democrats, rejected "disparaging ad hominem statements by US officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations".

The president has been a disruptive force for the global trading order, insisting other countries move to reduce barriers he said have left the USA with a trade deficit of more than $800 billion.

Compare his treatment of our Canadian allies to his treatment of Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un, two of the world's most brutal dictators who have killed dissidents and imprisoned political opponents.

Donald Trump spent most of the last few days in Canada, visiting with powerful leaders from around the globe at the G-7 Summit.

Here's the thing. Donald Trump, as I mentioned, he got on Twitter. Where are their spines, as he trashes American values overseas and re-writes Republicanism for the worse at home? Sen.

As Derek Scissors of the American Enterprise Institute points out, the trade agreement could extend beyond North America to Britain, which is seeking a new trade arrangement as it exits the European Union, and the Philippines and Taiwan, which are pressured by China.
