ARCTIC BLAST: Trump SLAMS Canada’s Trudeau Over G7 Comments

12 June 2018

"As far as this retaliation goes, the American press needs to do a much better job of what the Canadians are getting ready to do because it's nothing short of an attack on our political system and it's nothing short of Canada trying to raise its high protectionist barriers even higher on things like maple syrup and other goods", he said. But the reason he's anxious about milk exports to Canada is a non-tariff measure. He expressed confidence that USA relations with other G7 countries would continue to move forward, despite the weekend clash in Canada.

His tweet, shortly after leaving Charlevoix in Quebec, came in response to what he claimed were "false statements" by the summit host, Canadian premier Justin Trudeau.

Officially, the Trump administration used national security grounds to justify the tariffs, but Trump's clash with Canada may have more to do with a perceived personal slight than the facts of the bilateral relationship. Justin Trudeau wears fake eyebrows and takes really good care of us most of the time.

He added that Trump "is not going to let a Canadian prime minister push him around ... on the eve of this - he is not going to permit any show of weakness on a trip to negotiate with North Korea".

It started with his outrageous suggestion that Russian Federation be allowed back into the group, displaying, once again, Trump's troubling obsession with Vladimir Putin.

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", he wrote in one tweet that then went on to accuse Canada of imposing unfair taxes on United States dairy products.

"I would hope that he would reflect on what his closest allies are saying".

Following the media avail, a reporter asks if Trudeau is disappointed that Trump was cutting out early to prepare for his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"She turned into this wonderful antecedent to Donald Trump - someone who's in the same age range but has so much more to say", he said. "I don't understand the obsession with trade relations with Canada", he said, given that Canada is the biggest single buyer of American goods and services in the world.

Trump announced on Twitter he had made the decision following comments from Trudeau that Canada would move ahead with imposing retaliatory measures on the United States in response to newly imposed tariffs imposed by the U.S. on aluminum and steel.

Jeremy Corbyn said Donald Trump was to blame for the summit's "failure".

Saturday, Trump summit pulled the U.S. endorsement of the summit communique - a joint statement that was signed by all the other G7 participants: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom.

Figures that Trump cites in his tweets have often been found to be incorrect or misleading.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had responded to Trump's recent threats and installing of tariffs in a press conference at the end of the summit. He justified President Trump's decision to drop out of a joint statement made by G7 countries this weekend.

On Twitter, Trump complained that Trudeau had criticized US trade policy - specifically USA tariffs on Canadian metals - after the Canadian premier had "acted so meek and mild" in their one-on-one meeting.

He concluded: "Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on Trade anymore".
