Trump SLAMS Canada’s Trudeau Over G7 Comments — ARCTIC BLAST
Where does Trump's outburst leave international relations?
12 June, 2018, 02:05
Soon after Trump left the G7 summit he tweeted that he had instructed the House of Representatives not to endorse the final communique of the G7 summit due to Trudeau's "false statements at his news conference", as the Canadian prime minister dismissed USA metal tariffs as "insulting" and announced retaliatory measures.
U.S. President Donald Trump's blistering attack on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has driven bilateral relations to their lowest point in decades and left Ottawa with few options for averting a trade war with its much bigger neighbor.
You would think a USA president who is hours away from sitting down for negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and perhaps bring an end to the Korean War and maybe making some headway on the denuclearization of the Koreas would be completely focused on that, but not Donald Trump.
European allies on Monday backed Trudeau in the spat with Trump and stressed that they will retaliate against the US tariffs with duties on USA goods. Trump refused to sign a previously-negotiated joint statement written by all seven countries, prompting French President Emmanuel Macron to say in a statement Sunday that "International cooperation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks ..."
The President insisted his allies were trying to take advantage of the USA over trade and financing North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.
"The burning tire fire that became the G7 is not surprising given rising trade tensions and President Trump's distaste for these global conclaves", said Chris Krueger, an analyst at Cowen Washington Research Group.
After the G-7 summit in Quebec Saturday, Trump tweeted aboard Air Force One that the United States would not sign a joint statement.
Congress has the lawmaking power, and if it be the will of a supermajority of both the House and the Senate, lawmakers can override Trump's veto pen, take back lawmaking power, and reverse course on his tariff policy.
The prime minister gave some hint of the tensions on show at the gathering in Canada last week as she revealed leaders expressed "deep disappointment" at the United States president's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.
Trudeau, who threatened retaliatory tariffs, also said Canada would not be "pushed around". CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday asked Larry Kudlow, the president's chief economic adviser, "What did [Trudeau] say that was so offensive?"
President Donald Trump took more swipes at Canada and its prime minister over trade issues as he settled in for a summit with North Korea in Singapore, contending that "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".
Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland responded to the White House assault by saying ad hominem attacks were not helpful, that Canada would retaliate to U.S. tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way and that Canada would always be willing to talk. He also said that because of Trudeau's comments, he instructed US trade representatives to not sign the communique the G-7 leaders had agreed upon expressing the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade". Before Trudeau can respond, Trump jumps in, saying, "No, he's happy". "I mean seriously, Russia, who took over Crimea, all the violence that's taken place in Ukraine, the poisoning of people in the United Kingdom, the influence in our election this last time period", Heyman recounted.
TAPPER: Oh, I see. "We have seen this with the climate agreement or the Iran deal".
Navarro called Trudeau's comments "nothing short of an attack on our political system".
"We used to be a nation that was unbelievably cash flow oriented and had no debt of any outcome", he said.
He added: "Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!" He reiterated his longstanding view that the USA has been taken advantage of in global trade, adding, "We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing, and that ends". The G-7 also includes Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan.
Shortly after arriving, Kim visited with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who is scheduled to meet with Trump on Monday. The foreign minister of Singapore tweeted out a picture of the cake presented to Trump at the luncheon today in Singapore .
