Canada parliament slams US' Trudeau attack

Twitter despairs as Trump blames Canada for White House burning during War of 1812

Twitter despairs as Trump blames Canada for White House burning during War of 1812

President Donald Trump's top economic adviser says Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "really kind of stabbed us in the back" when Trudeau said at the end of the Group of Seven summit that Canada wouldn't be pushed around by the USA and its trade tariffs.

"PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he 'will not be pushed around.' Very dishonest & weak", Trump wrote.

In a tweet sent Sunday while en route to Singapore, Trump pointed specifically to Canada's 270% tariff on dairy the origin of his frustrations with Canada.

Kudlow, the conservative economist who directs the National Economic Council, was upset with Trudeau's comments at a press conference after the contentious Group of 7 summit in Quebec.

MPs of all political stripes unanimously adopted a motion to that effect proposed by New Democrat MP Tracey Ramsey even as Trump continued to rail against what he described as unfair trade policies of Canada and other traditional US allies.

Still, other Trump advisers had taken up the attack in appearances on Sunday's news shows, leveling more withering and unprecedented criticism against Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time.

But then Trump pulled out of a joint statement while citing "false statements" by Canada's prime minister, Justin Trudeau.

"I have made it very clear to the President that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do".

Ambrose said the government needs to consider what more it's willing to put on the NAFTA table, keeping in mind that "what's at stake is just so much bigger than our pride".

Trump also raised eyebrows by urging the G7 to once again become a G8 by bringing Russian Federation back into the fold and for criticizing his allies, including Canada, for what he called unfair trade barriers.

Trump's attacks have Canadian businesses that use aluminum and steel very anxious, said Ontario Conservative MP John Brassard, who added that there is real concern that there will be serious job implications in very short order.

At a news conference Tuesday after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump recounted his recent tough exchanges with Trudeau.

Freeland said of the USA tariffs, "The national security pretext is absurd and frankly insulting to Canadians, the closest and strongest ally the United States has had".

France is also standing by the G7 communique, a French presidency official said. It came in sharp contrast to a roar of disapproval among Canadian politicians, who banded together across party lines to denounce Trump's attack and praise the bilateral and trading relationship between the two neighbors.

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". These countermeasures amount up to 16.6 billion Canadian dollars (about 12 billion US dollars) in imports of steel, aluminum, and other products from the Unites States, and are set to come into effect on July 1 this year. "They're gonna do what they can to defend and protect their country, just like we're trying to do the same thing with ours".
