White House adviser says Canada's Trudeau 'stabbed us in the back'

White House adviser says Canada's Trudeau 'stabbed us in the back'

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 11, 2018Why should I, as President of the United States, allow countries to continue to make Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our Farmers, Workers & Taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay?

But the response by USA lawmakers, business executives and officials falls short of the concerted and effective nationwide pressure campaign Canadian officials had hoped would be launched if a major threat developed.

But Twitter users went wild over another, much less serious issue: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's eyebrows.

Trump's unpredictability and his history of not following through on all his threats lead some in the Canadian government to believe he might pull back from the auto tariffs threat.

Kudlow also accused Trudeau of trying to undermine the USA president at a critical time before his summit with the reclusive Kim on Tuesday. The U.K. and USA continue to enjoy a special relationship, she said, which means that "when we disagree with the United States, and with the President, we're able to tell them".

When Shaun Kelly saw the tweets he started thinking about how the conversation could be expanded into the physical world, which is why he called on his fellow Americans to plant a tiny flag on their lawn in support of Canada. "I think it might be a Canadian identity", newspaper columnist John Ivison tweeted.

Members of Parliament gave unanimous consent for a motion backing Canadian steel and aluminium, hit by U.S. tariffs, as well as the supply management system that supports key agriculture sectors, and gave a standing ovation for the government response to the Trump administration's verbal attacks on Trudeau.


Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel talks with U.S. President Donald Trump at the G7 Summit. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

That was the Trump Tweet after he left the G7 conference in Quebec early to fly to Singapore to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

Canada's House of Commons stood Monday in defiance of Donald Trump, denouncing his name-calling tirade against Justin Trudeau and endorsing the prime minister's firm response to protectionist US tariffs and tweeted presidential threats against dairy producers and automakers. "I'm very pleased we came together on an ambitious joint communiqué at the end of this Charlevoix summit".

In a pointed criticism of Trump's policy, May said that the most effective way of reaping the benefits of globalisation was through multilateral action, adding: "It can not be done by taking unilateral action against your partners".

At his closing G7 news conference, Trudeau once again refers to the national-security premise behind the tariffs as "kind of insulting" and then explains Canada's retaliation - "I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do because Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around". He really actually, you know what?

"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. Canada is the top U.S. export market, with the country buying more than $340 billion in American goods and services in 2017, according to data from the U.S. Trade Representative.
