Twitter despairs as Trump blames Canada for White House burning during War of 1812

Twitter despairs as Trump blames Canada for White House burning during War of 1812

In his tweet after departing Charlevoix, he wrote: "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!"

Trudeau had said after Trump's exit that Canada would retaliate against USA tariffs.

In an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union," Kudlow argued that Trudeau's critique amounted to a betrayal of the G7, as well as the U.S.

Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un converged on this island city state Sunday ahead of one of the most unusual and highly anticipated summits in recent world history, a sit-down Tuesday morning meant to settle a stand-off over Pyongyang's nuclear arsenal. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did".

The prime minister's silence on Monday came in sharp contrast to a roar of disapproval among Canadian politicians, who banded together across party lines to denounce Trump's attack and praise the bilateral and trading relationship between the two neighbours.

EU nations are set to impose counter-measures on U.S. goods in response to tariffs on European steal and aluminium, but Mrs May cautioned against tit-for-tat retaliation that might lead to a trade war.

And Roland Paris, a former foreign policy adviser to Mr Trudeau, jabbed at Mr Trump on Twitter: "Big tough guy once he's back on his airplane".

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday", Navarro said: "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump".

"We went through it".

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he said.

Trump has infuriated the European Union, Canada and Mexico by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade any more".

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker is set to debrief Commissioners about the G7 and underline the commitment made by the EU in the communiqué to "continue to stand up for an worldwide rules-based multilateral system". The tariffs, which also take effect July 1, will last until the US ends its trade action. A senior United States administration official said that Trump had been angered by Trudeau's comments.

While the agreement of MPs who are normally opposed on most fronts was remarkable, the anger spread to pundits, officials, celebrities and ordinary citizens as Canadians vowed consumer boycotts of American goods and brainstormed insults of Trump on social media. In the end, that language stayed in and it was only on climate change that no consensus was reached. "And if it's not fixed, we're not going to deal with these countries".
