Trump rips Canada and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in tweets from Singapore

Trudeau announced the agreement at a news conference, and then, taking questions from reporters, reiterated his objections to Trump's imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

Hours after putting on an apparent show of unity at the end of a tense G7 summit, the member nations indulged in a war of words, particularly with the US.

REMINDER: This is Canada we're talking about.

Trump's extraordinary outburst on Monday against North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, the European Union and Canada appeared aimed at striking a chord with voters who support his "America First" agenda.

And he said he told Trump "it would be with regret but it would be with absolute clarity and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on 1 July, applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applied to us". "He is no friend of the United States, he's dismembering democracies everywhere and trying to do so in our own backyard".

He cited "a $800 Billion Trade Deficit" for the USA, a number he's touted several times. They must open their markets and take down their trade barriers! And I'll tell you, when you so aggressively go after the European allies, you drive them away from us.

But one US official, speaking on condition of anonymity, acknowledged: "The timing for all this is not very good at all".

"What we have is a country here in the United States, which has the lowest tariffs in the world, lowest non-tariff barriers in the world", said Peter Navarro, a White House trade adviser, on CNN in March. These trade disputes have been going on for quite some time. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore. "Massive trade deficits no longer!"

Trump reiterated his call to bring Russian Federation back into the Group of Eight bloc on Saturday, stoking an already-fraught relationship between the USA and its allies at the G7 summit in Le Malbaie, Quebec. But U.S. President Donald Trump's abrupt rejection of the joint communique and angry tweets left the annual meeting in disarray.

Noting the USA imposition of tariffs was officially stated as a national security consideration, Freeland said: "We are very clear that Canada does not pose a national security threat to the United States".

In view of threatened U.S. tariffs on vehicle imports, which would particularly affect Germany, Grenell said that he was a "big auto fan" and knew how important the industry was. "When I'm telling them, they're smiling at me. Not fair to our farmers!"

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 11, 2018.... And tariffs are going to come way down, because people can not continue to do that.

Then, with that out of his system, he ended his rant with this upbeat message: "Great to be in Singapore, excitement in the air!" I mean we have China where this is completely different because tariffs are a national security issue. "After many decades, fair and reciprocal Trade will happen!" Trump said that he withdrew the USA from the G-7's joint statement because of that slight.

"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. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

Canada's foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, said her country "does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks".
