But he admits Trump has a point when it comes to the export of U.S. dairy products to Canada.
Freeland, who was testifying before House of Commons trade committee, wouldn't tip the government's hand, but she committed to hitting back hard with retaliation similar to Canada's $16.6 billion response to the new USA metal tariffs.
"The tariffs to get common items back into Canada are so high that they have to smuggle them in", he said.
Separately, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland told MPs she believes a deal to renegotiate NAFTA is still possible despite the punitive tariffs the Trump administration has slapped on Canadian steel and aluminum in the name of national security. "They scuff 'em up, they made 'em sound old or look old".
"Canada's not going to take advantage of the United States any longer", Trump said.
On July 1, Canada is set to impose retaliatory action of $16.6 billion on US products after Trump slapped tariffs on aluminum and steel - and he has threatened more to come on automobiles.

"We absolutely understand the centrality of the automotive sector to our economy, to our relationship with the USA and to NAFTA", Freeland said.
Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland told the Commons global trade committee that the "absurd and insulting" USA action will meet with a firm response.
Trump also blasted Canada's supply management system for dairy and poultry, calling it a "barrier".
Trudeau has promised to retaliate against steel and aluminum tariffs the US has put on Canada's metals industries.
She confirmed that the United States is still insisting a new NAFTA deal have a five-year expiry clause. "And I think we all agree that it is important for Canada to stand up in defence of the global rules-based order, and we will do so".
