Canada parliament condemns US attack on Trudeau, country simmers

Trump told Macron EU worse than China on trade "Fair trade now fool trade", Trump vents anger on NATO allies, Trudeau

When Mr Trump's tweets withdrawing support from the G7 statement hit on Sunday, the Prime Minister's office said Mr Trudeau had not said anything in his closing news conference he has not said to the US President before.

Mrs May paid tribute to Canadian PM Justin Trudeau's leadership at the summit in the face of Mr Trump's criticisms.

In particular, Canada, Japan and the European G7 powers are outraged by Trump's unilateral - or illegal, in their eyes - imposition of tariffs on imported steel and aluminum in the name of preserving U.S. industry on national security grounds.

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

Former U.S. Ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman is calling on White House trade adviser Peter Navarro to apologize for saying there is a "special place in hell" for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, calling the remarks "unconscionable".

"Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!"

For good measure, Trump sent out more tweets the morning of June 8 before his arrival in Quebec - "Canada charges the US a 270% tariff on Dairy Products!"

The leaders of Canada and the United States are locked in an ugly, escalating public dispute over trade barriers, tariffs and how they think they world should resolve its problems.

The joint communique is a statement of broad goals and principles endorsed by the G7 leaders, and Trump's refusal means that this will be the first year that the annual summit fails to issue one.

On 1 June, the USA imposed a 25% tariff for steel and 10% for aluminium on imports from the European Union (EU), Canada, and Mexico. So it is even more unusual.

Strong language spewed forth on Sunday after Trudeau restated his opposition to US tariffs on Canadian aluminum and steel and promised retaliatory measures against American products.

"POTUS is not going to let a Canadian prime minister push him around", Kudlow said.

Amazon says that should include "hundreds" of items within the store, but obviously your experience is going to be more local. Gallo, the president and chief operating officer at Whole Foods Market said.

Following Trudeau's statement, Trump tweeted that the United States would not sign on to the summit's official communique - a largely symbolic but still largely unprecedented move.

Two Trump advisers have used television interviews to attack Trudeau following the summit. The source did not say Trump explicitly said he wanted all German-made cars out of the US.

In a weekend tweet, Green Party Leader Elizabeth May also expressed her support for Trudeau - and recommended other leaders follow suit. Pat Toomey (R-Penn.) said in a statement.

French President Emmanuel Macron's office also slammed Trump's decision to reject the official communique and denounced the U.S. president's negotiating tactics.

"International cooperation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks", Macron's statement said.

On Friday, Trump called for Russian Federation to be added to the summit to restore it the G8, a statement that Nebraska Republican Sen.

It appears as though Trump is the one performing a stunt, raging at Trudeau in theatrical fashion without a clear reason to be so worked up.

"Canada will impose more tariffs; the trade war will get worse before it gets better", Valliere said.

"Since World War II, we've had a number of allies around the world, and they are especially represented at the G-7", Udall said.

Similarly, former interim Conservative leader Rona Ambrose, also a member of the NAFTA advisory group, said Trudeau is doing the right thing.

Trump has already kick-started an investigation into auto imports, which could result in tariffs on foreign vehicles. More measures could be in the pipeline.
