Timeline of Donald Trump's war of words (and trade) with Justin Trudeau

  • US President Donald Trump accuses India of charging 100 per cent tariff on some imports

The joint communique is a statement of broad goals and principles endorsed by the G7 leaders, and Trump's refusal means that this will be the first year that the annual summit fails to issue one.

"Eyebrow gate" emerged just as US President Donald Trump criticised Mr Trudeau for being "meek and mild".

Trudeau said at the news conference that while the G-7 meeting was "very successful", Canada could impose retaliatory tariffs on US products.

"He (Trudeau) was polarising".

"[Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said. Larry Kudlow, the National Economic Council director, said Trudeau "kind of stabbed us in the back" during the closing press conference. -Canada border. Trudeau told reporters that imposing retaliatory measures "is not something I relish doing" but that he wouldn't hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests". In the most Canadian manner (polite), not directly targeting anyone unlike POTUS (President of the United States).

Prime Minister Theresa May has told the UK Parliament the G7 meeting in Canada at the weekend was "difficult". "I don't understand the obsession with trade relations with Canada", he said on Fox's "Sunday Morning Futures", given that Canada is the biggest single buyer of American goods and services in the world. Trump said that he withdrew the USA from the G-7's joint statement because of that slight.

Justin Trudeau's stance was solid and clear! "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One". I'll tell you this to my friends in Canada that was one of the worst political miscalculations of a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history.

But unity was torn apart when the United States president took exception to Mr Trudeau calling USA policy "insulting".

Fox News host calls Trump a 'dictator'
Scaramucci brushed right past Huntsman's apparent gaffe and instead offered praise for Trump's foreign policy strategy. Mr Scaramucci did not appear to notice the error, and replied: "Yeah, because Trump is a disruptive risk-taker".


Trump quickly responded by personally attacking Trudeau. Big trade barriers against USA farmers, and other businesses, will finally be broken. He did him a favor and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique. Congress has the lawmaking power, and if it be the will of a supermajority of both the House and the Senate, lawmakers can override Trump's veto pen, take back lawmaking power, and reverse course on his tariff policy. And yet when you listen to Navarro it sounds like Canada has broken diplomatic relations with the USA and declared war on the place.

Speaking to the House of Commons, May said the other G-7 nations "expressed deep disappointment at the unjustified decision of the United States to apply tariffs to steel and aluminum imports" and urged dialogue to avoid "tit-for-tat escalation".

"Take NAFTA for example. We make our commitments and keep them".

He also says Canadians expect him to foster with Trump "a constructive, productive relationship in which we can work together, that is based on not insulting and disrespecting each other". Now the US, Canada and Mexico are renegotiating the NAFTA agreement which Trump had earlier deemed to be unfair for the US.

MPs speaking to The Canadian Press said they've heard from constituents who are anxious about the implications of Trump's assertions, and it's expected the weekend's war of words will be a focus during question period on Monday afternoon.

A satirical Twitter handle titled "Trudeau's eyebrows" was created on 9 June to poke fun at the prime minister and his "fake" eyebrows.

"The burning tire fire that became the G7 is not surprising given rising trade tensions and President Trump's distaste for these global conclaves", said Chris Krueger, an analyst at Cowen Washington Research Group.
