Trudeau's criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'

Trudeau's criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'

USA president Donald Trump took more swipes at Canada and its prime minister over trade issues as he settled in for a multi-day summit with North Korea in Singapore, contending that "fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal".

"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. he 'will not be pushed around.' Very dishonest & weak", he added.

At a news conference Tuesday after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump recounted his recent tough exchanges with Trudeau.

The United States has alienated Canada and other allies by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, arguing that they pose a threat to USA national security.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland had responded to the White House comments by saying that Canada will retaliate to USA tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way and that Canada will always be willing to talk.

Trump fired off a volley of tweets on Monday further venting anger at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, the European Union and Trudeau.

Mr Trudeau, in Quebec City for bilateral meetings with non-G7 leaders after the summit, did not respond to reporters' questions as he arrived, but his office pointed to Ms Freeland as the minister responsible for Canada-US relations. Trump addressed the feud following his meetings with Kim in Singapore at a more than hour-long press conference.

Canadian officials have stressed the two countries' extensive trading relationship and pointed out that Canada is the top export destination for 35 U.S. states and that 9 million jobs in the United States depend on trade with its northern neighbour. I believe that. John McCain believes it. there's a movement all over the world to look inward, not outward, and I think it's a mistake.

Trump called Trudeau "dishonest" and "weak" in tweets following the summit on Saturday.

Trump has drawn criticism in recent days for suggesting that Russian Federation rejoin the G-7. Sen.

Hours after Mr Trump withdrew his support for the joint statement and attacked Mr Trudeau, Mr Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro drove the message home on Sunday morning news shows in an extraordinary assault on a close U.S. ally and neighbour.

"[Trump] wants to move all of that manufacturing back to the States, [but] we don't have people to actually do this work", Heyman said.

Tensions threatened to boil over when French President Emmanuel Macron, on the day before the start of summit, said the other 6 countries might sign a joint statement without the U.S.

Former Conservative cabinet minister James Moore, a member of the government's advisory group on NAFTA, hailed Trudeau's approach, refusing to react to "the noise, the bluster, the Twitter, the emotional outbursts". "I know it was reported sort of nasty both ways - I was angry at her, or she. The non-factual part of this is - they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said on CNN's "State of the Union".
