Trump lashes out at United States allies in Twitter rant

US President Donald Trump accuses India of charging 100 per cent tariff on some imports

"I mean we had Obama for the last eight years also threatening tariffs".

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", he wrote in one tweet that then went on to accuse Canada of imposing unfair taxes on U.S. dairy products. But the US levy on railroad cars is 14 percent, compared with 1.7 percent in the EU.

The motion has no real teeth, but offers a collective parliamentary backing of the Canadian steel, aluminum, and supply management sectors and support for the Canadian government's retaliatory tariffs.

Diplomatic relations have never been high on Trump's list of priorities and this was evident again at the G7 conference where he refused to sign a communique agreed by the other six members and left the conference early.

The leaders of Canada and the United States are locked in an ugly, escalating public dispute over trade barriers, tariffs and how they think they world should resolve its problems.

He said he felt deceived by Trudeau's referring to U.S. tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum as "insulting" and threatening to impose retaliatory penalties of his own.

He made this comment at the end of the G7 summit during a news conference on Saturday.

In tweets, Trump insulted Trudeau as "dishonest" and "weak".

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump", Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro said on Fox News this weekend, following the G7 summit in Quebec.

After the G-7 summit, Trudeau hosted a news conference where he said that the Canadian government "did not take" the US tariffs against Canada lightly.

In a pointed criticism of Trump's policy, May said that the most effective way of reaping the benefits of globalisation was through multilateral action, adding: "It can not be done by taking unilateral action against your partners".

Singh echoed this, chalking Trump's approach up to "bully tactics".

European officials said Trump had tried to water down the language in the draft communique on the WTO and rules-based trade.

Hours later, Arizona Republican Sen.

Twitter conspiracy theorists have gone into a meltdown over them, with many replacing cries of "Fake News" with 'Fake Brows'.

Pompeo, at the Singapore briefing, pointedly ignored a reporter's question about Navarro's comment and left the podium while he was being pressed for an answer. Jeff Flake issued a call-out to fellow party members, saying "this is not who we are." . The others mocked the United States president, who withdrew USA endorsement to a G7 economic agreement on Sunday.

In response to the initial tweets critical of her country and prime minister, Canada's foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, said her nation "does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks".

The G7 meeting was expected to be tense after Trump's decision to impose steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada, Mexico, and the European Union.

On Sunday, Trudeau ignored the barbs from Trump's advisors, tweeting a link to the G7 communique and hailing the "historic and important agreement we all reached". He said USA representatives will examine the tariffs on automobiles coming into the country and bemoaned the Canadian tariffs that affect American companies and farmers.
