White House blasts Trudeau over G7 statements

White House blasts Trudeau over G7 statements

U.S. President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were all jokes and smiles for the media as they met at the Group of Seven leaders summit in Quebec on Friday, but neither budged on the serious trade dispute between them. Anyone who has ever taken Economics 101 knows that tariffs will raise prices on US consumers and invite retaliatory tariffs from other countries, potentially erupting into a trade war.

Hayden added that the display reminded him of Sean Spicer lying about crowd sizes in a press briefing after Trump's inauguration: "He did it for personal survival", Hayden said.

"I think she is outlining Canada's actual position and is outlining actual steps that have been taken and are being taken", he told Xinhua in an interview.

"The response I've given both in private and in public is that any conversations about whether or not Russian Federation could come back around the table cannot take place until Russian Federation has changed its attitude". "I think we're in a hard place now, I'd like to see this thing settle down. Nor has anybody else".

Canada-U.S. relations seem to have reached their lowest point in more than a generation after Trump tweeted Saturday that he was withdrawing support from a G7 joint communique, while complaining he had been blindsided by Trudeau's criticism of U.S. tariffs at a closing news conference.

But if Trump is ultimately supportive of free trade, why inflict tariffs on US allies under unserious national security pretenses? He tweeted hours later that he had instructed US representatives not to endorse the G7 joint communique "based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our USA farmers, workers and companies".

As Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross wrote past year, while other nations like to criticize the United States for anti-trade rhetoric, their policies put high tariffs on USA goods. "Our tariffs are in response to his 270 percent on dairy". Trump aides accused Trudeau of betrayal of Trump for his statement on retaliation.

He went on to blast White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow for his freakish claim suggesting the success or failure of the Singapore summit between Trump and North Korea leader rests with Trudeau. Peter Navarro, Trump's most protectionist trade adviser, said there was "a special place in hell" for Trudeau after what he called the prime minster's "stunt press conference".

After Mr Trump had left the summit in Quebec he rounded on Justin Trudeau personally via Twitter, suggesting the Canadian prime minister was "very dishonest and weak" and "acts hurt when called out".

Mr Kudlow accused the Canadian PM of betraying Mr Trump with "polarising" statements on trade policy that risked making the United States leader look weak ahead of a historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. "We need to stand with our democratic allies".

The outburst against Trudeau, and by association the other G7 members, is only the latest incident in which Trump has clashed with America's closest allies, even as he has had warm words for autocrats like Kim and Russia's Vladimir Putin.

"The communique was agreed by all the parties who attended the G7 and we fully intend to honour it", the spokesman said.

However, on Monday, several MPs expressed concerns about the United Kingdom reaching any deal with the US given President Trump's recent trade actions against Canada, the European Union and other countries. Ms.

- Trudeau added that Trump "will continue to say what he says", but G7 countries made significant progress on matters of economy, female empowerment, environment and jobs. "That Canada could be considered a national security threat to the United States is inconceivable".
