Canada PM safe for now as Trump attacks, but angry farmers loom

Canada PM safe for now as Trump attacks, but angry farmers loom

Mr Navarro condemned Mr Trudeau following the Canadian leader's news conference after his summit meeting with Mr Trump and other G7 leaders.

Navarro came under scrutiny Sunday for bashing Trudeau after the prime minister criticized Trump in the wake of the G-7 summit held in Canada. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One".

"F-k you Trump. We just booked a $3,000 vacation to lovely British Columbia".

It was Mr. Trump's own Saturday news conference that forced Mr. Trudeau to talk about sunset clauses and retaliatory tariffs, and made it mandatory to express (polite) resolve.

"I actually like Justin", Trump said. Other than he had a news conference because he assumed I was on an airplane and wasn't watching.

"Being a non-nuclear responsible peaceful democracy that doesn't kill people en mass is not the way to go anymore". And, if I may quote the words of the great Bear Bryant, "when you make a mistake you should admit it, learn from it, don't repeat it".

Bruce Heyman, former US ambassador to Canada, said he believes the Trump administration is determined to withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement and has created "an anti-Canadian narrative" that will help him when he pulls the plug.

Guzman added that Argentina should be "patient, move the ball to create space and increase the speed of play with two or three touches".

The Canadian prime minister has been under attack from various members of the Trump administration since his remarks at the G7.

Trudeau said after the G-7 meeting that the aluminum and steel tariffs imposed by the USA on Canada on national security grounds were insulting and that "Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

At his closing G-7 press conference on Saturday, Trudeau called United States steel and aluminium tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs.

"The Section 232 action - which is, let me remind people, a national security consideration - is frankly absurd", Freeland said on Capitol Hill after the meeting. During the Second World War, the US joined Canada and the Allied forces to defeat the Axis powers. As we show in the graphic below, Canada is by far the hardest-hit by the tariffs, with over $12 billion of annual exports targeted.

"He really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said, echoing Navarro.

After a particularly tense week for Canada-U.S. relations, Justin Trudeau's top diplomat said North American Free Trade Agreement negotiations will continue. According to the Office of the United States Trade Representative, the US had an $8.4 billion trade surplus with Canada, but a $17.5 billion trade deficit if services were excluded. "I think we'd have no choice". Reporters rushed to ask Canadian officials about it. Mr. Trudeau had to unequivocally deny it. You know they put out a document, I don't know if you saw it.
