State leaders not concerned with Trump's trade tiff with Canada

  • Canadian prime minister's eyebrow appears to fall off

Immediately after his remarks Saturday, Trump blasted Trudeau's statement as "dishonest & weak" on Twitter and announced the U.S. would not be signing the joint G7 communique - a symbolic but unprecedented move.

U.S. President Donald Trump's personal attacks against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shouldn't be taken personally because that's just Trump's "style", said the president's controversial former press secretary. "I own that. That was my mistake, those were my words".

The next morning, Navarro and chief economics adviser Larry Kudlow were deployed to the Sunday talk shows.

The day before, on Saturday, at the end of what was a very successful and friendly G7 summit, shortly after Air Force One and the president left Canadian airspace, the prime minister of Canada held a press conference that this administration viewed as a breach of protocol, and inappropriate. He vented his sentiments on Twitter just minutes after Trudeau's announcement with a scathing invective calling his host "very dishonest & weak".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks at the final press conference of the G7 summit.

The back-and-forth between Trump and Trudeau highlights the growing tensions between the USA and some the country's closest allies.

The U.K.'s House of Commons burst into laughter on Monday after Conservative MP Crispin Blunt asked Prime Minister Theresa May to choose between President TrumpDonald John TrumpSanford at risk in primary shadowed by Trump McConnell cements his standing in GOP history Ready for somebody?


G7 leaders jumped to the defence of Trudeau and reiterated their support for their joint statement. "And I see the television, and he's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States". No, I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau.

However, the G7 summit was overshadowed by USA president Donald Trump's trade policy to impose tariffs on metals to EU, Canada and Mexico together with the fact that he left before the official climate talks begin showing his distinct stance to drop off the Paris agreement.

While Navarro backed down from his attack, Trump did not, continuing on Tuesday to accuse Trudeau of acting in bad faith and trying to take advantage of the United States.

There is no obvious precedent for such a coordinated and acerbic series of attacks by White House advisers on a stalwart US ally.

It came in response to what he claimed were "false statements" by Canadian premier Justin Trudeau.

Trump's tough rhetoric for the leader of Canada, one of the United States' closest allies, was in sharp contrast with the words he chose to describe Kim. Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%. So Trump's national security justification is so laughable that Republicans who have been willing to stick by Trump through every other blunder are ready to work with Democrats to block these tariffs by holding military spending hostage.

"The historic and important agreement we all reached at #G7Charlevoix will help make our economies stronger & people more prosperous, protect our democracies, safeguard our environment and protect women & girls' rights around the world". "Politicians can get into disagreements and they can have heated disputes but you have to think about where does this go, how bad could it get and the disputes are over a really, really small share of GDP".
