Canada's PM is back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time, trade adviser says

Canadian lawmakers unanimously accuse US of attacking Trudeau - Xinhua | English.news.cn

Surrounded by G7 leaders, President Donald Trump, and Trump alone, can be seen sitting - arms crossed.

Trump roiled the weekend Group of Seven meeting of industrialized nations in Canada by agreeing to a group statement on trade only to withdraw from it while flying to Asia.

For Republican Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, the president's response was simply the incorrect way to treat a key ally.

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

Republican Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch said the comment was "out of line", telling Politico the adviser "should have kept his big mouth shut because I don't think that helps us in foreign policy". At one point he wrote, "Justin acts hurt when called out!"

She said USA concerns that some countries were "not playing by the rules" when it came to worldwide trade could not be ignored but they must be addressed multilaterally, for instance through reform of the World Trade Organisation.

Yet his top diplomat, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, downplayed the severity of the rift.

Mr Trump's looming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un heightened tension, and White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Mr Trudeau of betraying Mr Trump with "polarising" statements on trade policy that risked making the U.S. leader look weak on the eve of the historic North Korea summit.

Navarro's' attack came amid a war of words over trade between Trump and Trudeau.

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Tuesday apologized after saying that there is a "special place in hell" for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Ms. May ducked Mr. Corbyn's question and when later asked by Conservative MP Crispin Blunt: "Trudeau or Trump?", she smiled and replied: "I'm not sure what activity he's asking me to undertake with either of them". Among other things, she said the government should be preparing to keep pace with corporate tax cuts and tax breaks south of the border.

Ries says it could take a while for Canadian consumers to suffer.

The latest Quinnipiac University Poll found that a majority of swing voters, 55 percent, support tariffs on Chinese imports, as President Trump has sought to do. "That will not stand". But the trolled Prime Minister had his staunch supporters too.

He said he felt deceived by Trudeau's referring to United States tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum as "insulting" and threatening to impose retaliatory penalties of his own. The Trump administration doesn't like the WTO and didn't want it mentioned, the source said.
