  • Anti-U.S. consumer boycott? Canadians may find it hard to pull off

President Donald Trump is continuing to throw a tantrum over Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's comments following the G-7 meeting.

In the end, Trump never visited the sessions on climate or the ocean, but held its own news conference, where he slammed "unfair trade" and promised to cut ties with countries that didn't adhere to a "zero tariffs", policy, then leaving for a summit in Singapore.

Navarro later apologized for the comments, telling a news conference in Washington on Tuesday: "My job is to send a signal of strength". Trudeau's comments centered around Trump's lack of understanding when it comes to global trade.

Canada reacted coolly to the apology, with Trudeau declining to answer when reporters asked him whether he accepted it.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he had said.

Trump called Trudeau "dishonest" and "weak" in tweets following the summit on Saturday.

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

With politicians on both sides of the House supporting retaliation against penalties on Canadian steel and aluminum, John Ries, a professor with UBC's Sauder School of Business, says that might lead to US President Donald Trump backing off.

Trudeau criticism will cost Canada `a lot of money´
Navarro, for his part, suggested that he was following orders - but made a poor choice of words in doing so. He made the comments Tuesday at an event of The Wall Street Journal CFO Network in Washington.


Describing the U.S. tariffs on European steel and aluminium as "unjustified", she left no doubt that EU nations would impose counter-measures on USA goods in response but cautioned against tit-for-tat retaliation which might lead to a trade war.

"And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", he said.

"Justin probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions, and I see the television", Trump said.

At that post-G7 press conference on Saturday, Trudeau had called US steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and said he would proceed with retaliatory tariffs that he'd already announced.

Not long after, Trump went on a "Twitter" attack accusing Trudeau of making "false statements", basically calling him a liar and also saying that he was "very dishonest and weak".

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade", he added in response to the threat of the retaliatory tariffs against the US. "Canada. Maybe we need a northern wall", he said.

On Tuesday, Trump kept up the attack on Trudeau. 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".
