White House takes up trade fight against 'back-stabbing' Trudeau

Trump Takes More Swipes at Canada After Arrival in Singapore Where does Trump's outburst leave international relations?

Canada last week announced retaliatory tariffs on C$16.6 billion ($12.8 billion) worth of USA exports and said it will challenge US steel and aluminum tariffs under the North American Free Trade Agreement and the World Trade Organization.

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.

"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.

"The withdrawal, so to speak, via tweet is of course. sobering and a bit depressing", German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Sunday in a TV interview.

"Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks ... and we refrain particularly from ad hominem attacks when it comes from a close ally", Ms Freeland told reporters in Quebec City. "$800 billion trade deficit", he said.

Trump suggested welcoming Russian Federation back into the group after being kicked out in 2014 for its illegal annexation of Crimea.

Before leaving for Singapore, Mr. Trump had delivered a stark warning to America's trading partners not to counter his decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

He said he felt deceived by Trudeau's referring to U.S. tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum as "insulting" and threatening to impose retaliatory penalties of his own.

Two points of the joint communique formulated by the G7 members were not negotiated with the USA president, but that didn't prevent the Canadian prime minister from announcing that all member-states had reached common ground on the final statement. CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday asked Larry Kudlow, the president's chief economic adviser, "What did [Trudeau] say that was so offensive?"

Trump administration officials on Sunday accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of stabbing President Trump in the back, blaming him for the president's refusal to endorse a joint statement with other world leaders.

Confidence between President Trump and his allies appears to have fallen to an all-time low.

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

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

Kudlow's and Navarro's comments come on the heels of a tense G7 summit that left relations with US allies even more fractured than before. He adds that America "cannot let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade anymore". I think that Trudeau has tried the right thing, he's been trying to use flattery and befriend Trump.

And Americans are practically apologizing on behalf of their president.

"But the conclusion I draw is that it is only through continued dialogue that we can find ways to work together to resolve the challenges we face". "We have seen this with the climate agreement or the Iran deal". The G-7 also includes Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan. "On the contrary, as part of the USA law, we are part of the national defense base of the United States".
