Trump renews attacks on Canada's Trudeau

Trump renews attacks on Canada's Trudeau

"At this moment in our history with our US neighbours, Canadians need to know that all sides of this House stand united as one", Ramsey said.

Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, suggested that Trump saw Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before the summit with Kim.

"I'm going to stay focused on defending jobs for Canadians and supporting Canadian interests", he said.

Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland warned Tuesday that Canada is prepared for anything, even as the USA considers auto tariffs that experts say would lead to a full-out trade war, harming both Canadian and American businesses.

President Trump is accusing the country's prime minister of making false statements, and the president's trade adviser saying there's "a special place in hell" for the leader of Canada, our biggest trading partner in all of the world, our best friend from way back in World War II and every time in between.

Mr Navarro reportedly said on Tuesday his remarks were a mistake and his language was inappropriate.

"Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries", Freeland said.

"I'm not sure what activity he's asking me to undertake with either", May said amid laughter. Trump and his inner circle were irked by Justin Trudeau's comments to media that Canada would not be "pushed around" by the USA and will respond in kind to tariffs slapped on steel and aluminum on the "insulting" grounds of national security. "He learned, that's going to cost a lot of money to the people of Canada". He learned. You can't do. "You can't do that".

"I think we should be taking (Trump's) threat at face value and prepare for an attempt to issue tariffs", said Flavio Volpe, president of the Automotive Parts Manufacturer's Association.

"I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message", Navarro said in an interview at the Wall Street Journal's CFO Network.

Also from Reuters: The Japanese government wants to buy some 131,070 tonnes of food quality wheat from the United States, Canada and Australia, according to a new tender that closes Thursday.

"I think the first-hand interaction is likely to be a stronger factor than anything the president says", he said.

Kudlow's comments were quickly followed by Director of the White House National Trade Council Peter Navarr, who said there is a "special place in hell" reserved for anyone who double-crosses Trump.

"We finished the [G7] meeting and really everybody was happy".

He said it "didn't look friendly" but it was "very friendly". "It's very unfair, and it's very unfair to our workers, and I'm gonna straighten it out".

While en route to Singapore on Air Force One, Trump took to Twitter to take swipes at Canadian prime minster Justin Trudeau for being "meek and mild" during the G7 meetings and proceeded to also call him "dishonest and weak". "The wounds will heal, but the question [is] how does the relationship get impacted?"

Asked if he was apologizing for the comments, Navarro said, "yeah, absolutely". "No one will win, we should definitely put up a fight for the parachute".
