"I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests", Trudeau said.
The two-day 44th G7 summit ended on Saturday. But he acknowledges that Trump might not realize he's jeopardizing U.S.jobs by triggering a series of tariffs and counter-tariffs with Canada.
Trudeau reiterated that his nation's retaliatory tariffs will go into effect July 1. For instance, Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs are expected to cause a drag on United States economic growth and result in a net loss of American jobs. "#G72018" a tweet from the White House read.
The G7 communique said the leaders of seven of the most powerful countries in the world agreed on the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism.More news: Kylian Mbappe breaks silence on injury scare ahead of World Cup
After bashing Trudeau and the other attendees, President Trump's top economic advisor actually took to CNN Sunday morning, claiming Prime Minister Trudeau "stabbed" America "in the back".
Trudeau addressed the media on June 9 stating his intention to impose retaliatory measures on the USA from 1 July, as a necessary means to safeguard Canadian interests.
"Trudeau did not make President Trump look weak", Hayden said on CNN Newday Monday.
In a series of angry tweets, Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak" and said the USA won't be taken advantage of.
"Very disappointing and childish and unprofessional behavior [from Trudeau]", Gorka said while on Fox & Friends on Monday.
The slow progress of the talks - the Trump administration has missed multiple deadlines to notify Congress of modifications to the agreement - has been accompanied by a hardening of USA tactics over the past month. "Kim must not see weakness". "The problem is that in conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate". "He should never have said it", Reagan said.More news: Love Island viewers think they know exactly why Niall left the villa
Freeland told reporters Sunday that Canada's position negotiating NAFTA is unchanged.
"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".
"We have states that depend on Canada as their largest export market - over 30 states in fact".
Trudeau kept silence after the personal attacks.
