'Fair trade now fool trade', Trump vents anger on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, Trudeau

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

Such statements are not objectively true or false, but they appear to be what triggered Trump's outburst.

What was new was Trudeau's news conference Saturday, where he said that Canadians "will not be pushed around" and added that the Trump administration's national security justification for imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imported from Canada is "kind of insulting". The others mocked the USA president, who withdrew USA endorsement to a G7 economic agreement on Sunday. Highly restrictive on Trade! He's the chief economic adviser to the president. "Well, the in-factual, the non-factual part of this was they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said.

Trump himself told reporters on Saturday that the summit was not contentious and called his relationship with G7 allies a "10".

Trump said in a second tweet.

On Sunday, Republican Maine Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb. The New York Times reported that Trump has defiantly refused to sign the trade agreement or verdict signed by all nations present at the summit. "And no subsidies. I even said no tariffs", he said.

But if Trump is ultimately supportive of free trade, why inflict tariffs on US allies under unserious national security pretenses?

The analysts also are looking at the impact auto tariffs would have on the Canadian dollar and on overall competitiveness in the North American auto sector.

Trump called for a tariff-free G-7.

Well, what if Trump is the one retaliating?

French President Emmanuel Macron's office also slammed Trump's decision to reject the official communique and denounced the U.S. president's negotiating tactics.

"Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries", said Canadian foreign affairs minister Chrystia Freeland, according to the Toronto Star.

One of the examples Ross pointed out in his piece, and one that Trump cites frequently, is a 10 percent tariff the European Union charges on imported American cars. "Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%", he wrote in the first of five tweets relating to the weekend's summit. However, he noted that the USA tariffs are "insulting" and Canada "will not be pushed around".

Hayden noted US and Canadian intelligence services "don't just cooperate". Earlier that day, Trump also tweeted: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the USA massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers". 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. He is doing what he thinks is best, and he's doing it with the powers Congress ceded to the executive branch.

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. But this is a question for debate, and the branch of government where public deliberation is supposed to occur has deferred to the president. "We can have disagreements as allies and I don't even mind the President going there with a tough message because, look, we want a fair deal, but to go to that level, when I woke up and saw that headline, I was a little confused".

"In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters", German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said when asked about Mr Trump's U-turn, adding it would take much longer to rebuild lost trust.

"Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!".
