Trudeau supports Trump on North Korea, but won't respond to barbs

14 June 2018

US President Donald Trump has said that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's criticism of his trade negotiation tactics following the G7 summit is "probably going to cost the people of Canada a lot of money".

Heyman was referring to Trump tweets that including calling Trudeau "weak" and "dishonest."

Monday's symbolic House vote was held after Mr. Trump criticized Mr. Trudeau over the weekend for vowing to retaliate against tariffs recently imposed by the US on Canadian steel and aluminum products.

"I own that, that was my mistake, those were my words", Navarro said.

In contrast, Trump was incredibly friendly during his historic meeting with Kim in Singapore on Tuesday, even giving the North Korean leader a thumbs-up.

Opposition Leader James Aylward also expressed his support for Trudeau implementing retaliatory trade tariffs on USA goods.

Mr Trump also commented at the news conference on the viral photo taken of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and others standing before him.

People close to the prime minister reject the suggestion he misread Trump and cite what they say is the president's highly unpredictable nature. He learned. You can't do that.

"Canadian dairy farmers and their families are concerned by the sustained attacks by President Trump with an aim to wiping out dairy farmers here at home", Lampron added.

Some of Trump's aides also lashed out at the Canadian prime minister.

At the summit's conclusion on Saturday, Trudeau reiterated that Ottawa was prepared to retaliate against the new tariffs if the United States did not back down, and said Canadians "would not be pushed around".

"They have made a decision to go significantly into the export market by undercutting the world price for milk powder", said Vilsack, who was US agriculture secretary under former President Barack Obama.

For longtime critics of Canada's farm supply management system, President Donald Trump's latest disjointed ramblings about unfair Canadian trade practices are a bit of a gift. And I say, 'Push him around?

Gov. Phil Scott, who has consistently been a vocal advocate for maintaining the North American Free Trade Agreement - an arrangement Trump has threatened to abolish - said last week his administration has remained concerned about economic ties across the northern border.

The minister stayed above the fray on those attacks, but she did not hesitate to repeat Canada's opposition in the bluntest of terms - in particular the use of Section 232 of USA trade law to justify the action on national security grounds. "And this was particularly important on the eve of a far more important summit in Korea". When 9/11 happened, Gander, N.L., opened its doors to thousands of strangers, many of them Americans.
