President Trump Is Still Very Angry With Canada's PM Justin Trudeau


After the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, Trump recounted his recent tough exchanges with Trudeau - most specifically the USA president's Twitter tirade against Trudeau, whom he has called "dishonest" and "weak".

Among the many topics that came up was Trump's recent Twitter campaign against Trudeau, whom he has called "dishonest" and "weak".

On the eve of Mr. Trump's meeting with Mr. Kim, one of the president's top trade advisers, Peter Navarro, said there was "a special place in hell" for leaders like Mr. Trudeau, accusing him of engaging in "bad-faith diplomacy" with Mr. Trump.

In the same set of tweets, Trump said: "Justin acts hurt when called out!"

The foreign affairs minister will have her work cut out for her as she attempts to see Canada spared from the U.S.'s heavy-handed steel, aluminum and auto tariffs and mend the increasingly frayed relationship between the two countries.

Trudeau said at the press conference that Canada would not be "pushed around" by the United States.

She also said that during the summit the leaders discussed President Trump's proposal for complete free trade among G7 member states, but said the issue was "fair trade". Canada exports $300 billion worth of goods to the United States, while the US exports $282.5 billion worth of goods to Canada.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May told MPs on Monday that she wanted to pay "a particular tribute" to Mr Trudeau for his leadership and skilful chairing.

Tory former minister Crispin Blunt slipped the cheeky "Trudeau or Trump?" question in after the Prime Minister had updated the Commons on the G7 summit.

Another stumbling block was the part regarding climate change, where the USA didn't want to see any reference to the Paris Agreement, from which the Trump administration has withdrawn, The Star reported.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is cheering Donald Trump's bid to broker a deal to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons, but he's keeping mum on the USA president's persistent trash talk against Canada. "The problem was that in conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate".

Canada will have to make dairy concessions to get a US trade deal, but it does not have to mean dismantling supply management, Gifford said. Trump said in a second tweet.

"To leave Canada the way that we did and to make the statements about a trusted ally like this is just wrong", Flake told reporters, according to ABC News.

"He really kind of stabbed us in the back", he said. "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, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said Saturday. Trudeau had used similar language in the past, and Canada threatened retaliatory tariffs before the G-7 got underway in response to the US duties on metal. Trudeau pulled a "sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption" that amounted to "a betrayal", said Kudlow, who appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" and CBS' "Face the Nation".

"Certainly having officials in one government criticize the head of government in another country, I don't think I've ever seen that before", he said.
