McCain to allies: 'Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't'

McCain to allies: 'Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't'

The prime minister said although retaliation "is not something I relish doing", he would not hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests".

Trump also slammed Europe, writing, "the United States pays close to the entire cost of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation - protecting many of these same countries that rip us off on trade".

The White House is quietly trying to fix the American government's fractured relationship with Canada as President Donald Trump is in Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Politico reported Monday.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had responded to Trump's recent threats and installing of tariffs in a press conference at the end of the summit.

Trump's renewed comments on trade come amid a growing dispute between Washington and its top allies.

"It was very friendly", Trump said.

It says that MPs "reject disparaging ad-hominem statements by USA officials, which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute". "The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the President".

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said on Sunday in response to questions about Kudlow and Navarro's comments that she is thankful she is "not responsible for explaining the reasoning behind any comments made by the officials of any foreign government". "We just shook hands!'" Trump said Tuesday.

Among other insults the president levelled at the PM, Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak", and accused Canada of ripping the US off in trade.

"We finished the (G7) meeting and really everybody was happy".

"Very dishonest & weak", he said of Trudeau. "The problem is that in conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he fully supports Donald Trump's efforts to get North Korea to relinquish its nuclear arsenal, but he won't respond to the USA president's latest barbs directed at Canada.

His tweet, shortly after leaving Charlevoix in Quebec, came in response to what he claimed were "false statements" by the summit host, Canadian premier Justin Trudeau.

Given the confusion, we should not take for granted that traditional USA allies will continue to stand with us.

"We have states that depend on Canada as their largest export market - over 30 states in fact".

"A reasonable, balanced and firm assertion that Canada will not be bullied, and that we will retaliate if the US Administration does not end its attack on our steel exports".

"Divisive rhetoric and personal attacks from the U.S. administration are clearly unhelpful", he added.
