Trump lashes out at USA allies in Twitter rant

US President Donald Trump accuses India of charging 100 per cent tariff on some imports

US President Donald Trump accuses India of charging 100 per cent tariff on some imports

As it turns out, Trudeau was responding to a reporter's question about USA -imposed steel tariffs during a press conference at the conclusion of the G7 summit.

"Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries", said Canadian foreign affairs minister Chrystia Freeland, according to the Toronto Star.

Reacting to the same, Kudlow said, "Trudeau really kind of stabbed us in the back".

Mr Trudeau, who had said at the news conference that Canada would retaliate over new United States tariffs, did not respond to questions about Mr Trump when the prime minister arrived at a Quebec City hotel on Sunday for meetings with other world leaders.

Hayden added that the display reminded him of Sean Spicer lying about crowd sizes in a press briefing after Trump's inauguration: "He did it for personal survival", Hayden said.

"We commit to modernize the WTO to make it more fair as soon as possible".

Tensions have been building between the two countries for months, as President Trump has targeted Canada as one of the many countries he sees as giving American the short end of the stick in trade deals.

"This bilateral was among the most productive we've ever had and we have had some productive ones", the first source said.

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

Of the 32 states that count Canada as their biggest export destination, 20 voted for Trump in the 2016 election. Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%. Earlier that day, Trump also tweeted: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

Describing the U.S. tariffs on European steel and aluminium as "unjustified", she left no doubt that EU nations would impose counter-measures on U.S. goods in response but cautioned against tit-for-tat retaliation which might lead to a trade war. Canada promptly announced a range of retaliatory tariffs to the tune of $16.6 billion.

Former Minister of National Defence in Stephen Harper's government, among other positions, Peter MacKay dropped by our Toronto Sun offices to chat with Editor-In-Chief Adrienne Batra and unpack what Trump and Trudeau's growing feud means to Canada (hello: recession?!) and why he wishes our PM had been chiller with Trump.

What Navarro is saying is, oh well, Trump did everyone a favour by coming to Quebec and the G7.

But unity was torn apart when the U.S. president took exception to Mr Trudeau calling USA policy "insulting".

"I'm unconcerned about our capacity to continue to do what we need to do".

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow explained on CBS' Face the Nation that Trudeau's comments had inspired Trump's fury.

Last week, Canada hit back at Trump administration by announcing retaliatory tariffs on up to 16.6 billion Canadian dollars (12.8 billion US dollars) worth of USA steel and aluminum as well as a diverse list of other products.

"There are always irritants in relationships", Pompeo said while in Singapore for a summit between Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un. If it is fake, I have little hope for Canada while he is in charge.

Trump issues another Twitter salvo Sunday night, suggesting that Canada is "bragging" in an unspecified release about benefiting from US trade - "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".

He concluded: "Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on Trade anymore".
