ARCTIC BLAST: Trump SLAMS Canada’s Trudeau Over G7 Comments

ARCTIC BLAST: Trump SLAMS Canada’s Trudeau Over G7 Comments ARCTIC BLAST: Trump SLAMS Canada’s Trudeau Over G7 Comments

President Donald Trump's mistaken assertion that Canada burned down the White House in 1814 is minor compared with his confusion over the trade relationship with our northern neighbor.

"We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", the statement said, which came despite Washington appearing intent on taking more punitive steps on trade.

"Way over the top with Navarro".

"This I've never seen before". "The thing is, these people they're dealing with now are leaders of their own countries".

Now with Trump piling in with his own attempt to humiliate the Canadian leader, the Globe and Mail newspaper said the U.S. leader's comments "couldn't have been better measured to raise Canadians' national sense of injustice".

'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.

Addressing reporters in Singapore ahead of Trump's summit Tuesday with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Pompeo said he was "unconcerned" that Trump's treatment of Canada - a close ally - boded poorly for his ability to forge peace with a longtime US adversary.

"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, '" Trump tweeted.

The remarks angered Trump, prompting him to tear into Trudeau as "weak" and "dishonest" in a tweet, while his aides harshly criticized the Canadian leader during appearances on the Sunday morning talk shows. And chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Trudeau of betrayal and stabbing Trump in the back.

This seems to have been what Trump was referring to when he tweeted: "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".

Mr Trudeau and the European Union have vowed to take retaliatory action next month over U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum.

He said Trump "did the courtesy to Justin Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit".

All of the countries attending the G7 meeting agreed to a communique showing shared priorities. Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%.

The U.S. actually has a trade surplus with Canada.

"A reasonable, balanced and firm assertion that Canada will not be bullied, and that we will retaliate if the US Administration does not end its attack on our steel exports".
