Trump takes more swipes at Canada and Trudeau after tense G7 summit

  • George said Trump's tariffs are going to

He said the Canadian leader must not have realized that Trump had televisions on Air Force One, allowing him to monitor Trudeau's news conference at the end of the G-7 summit.

He said Mr Trudeau was "very dishonest and weak" and "acts hurt when called out".

"Sometimes when we think about tariffs, when we think about a trade war, we lose sight of the real impact, and that's on workers", Singh told a news conference on Parliament Hill.

Trump, as well as some of his aides, went on the attack this past weekend against the Prime Minister, throwing heavy insults at him after he refused to submit to the President's contentious tariff demands - mainly on steel and aluminum.

The United States has alienated Canada and other allies by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, arguing that they pose a threat to USA national security.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", he said.

G7 allies criticised Trump's decision to reject a joint communique, the BBC reported on Monday.

Earlier today, Trudeau cheered Trump's bid to broker a deal to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons, but he stayed mum on the USA administration's persistent trash talk.

She said it had been "a hard summit with, at times, some very candid discussions" and that the United Kingdom would honour its commitments in the joint communique.

"But the conclusion I draw is that it is only through continued dialogue that we can find ways to work together to resolve the challenges we face". May said the USA has already asked about negotiating a trade agreement post-Brexit and she expressed confidence that the United Kingdom government will be able to negotiate a fair arrangement.

As the Washington Post explains, "Though Canada enjoys broadly free trade with the United States through NAFTA, it has never been absolute, and the deal makes several concessions to Canadian protectionism and politics".

Sometimes described as a "mini-Obama", not least due to his omnipresent smile, Trudeau is clearly far closer in his political alignments to the US Democratic Party than Trump's Republicans. The French presidency had earlier condemned "fits of anger".

Trump says Trudeau's actions will cost Canada "a lot of money". According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with USA (guess they were bragging and got caught!).

The EU has "a $151 billion surplus" which it should use to fund "military", said Trump Monday, referencing what Trump believes is the US' outsized financial contribution to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

The EU then announced retaliatory tariffs on USA goods ranging from Harley-Davidson motorcycles to bourbon.

He also suggested he is again studying possible tariffs on automobiles imported from Canada, a move which would have a much more substantial hit on both economies. But despite the war of words, Trump insisted at the press conference in Singapore that the pair still "have a good relationship".
