Trump says Trudeau's G7 comments will cost Canadians a lot of money

13 June 2018

He made the comments Tuesday at an event of The Wall Street Journal CFO Network in Washington. "The problem is that in conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate".

Of the 3.4 million lost in that time period, about 2.6 million were lost in the crippled manufacturing industry, making up about three-fourths of the loss of jobs from the U.S.

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada; he learned", Mr Trump said wagging his finger.

Navarro on Sunday joined administration officials in lashing out at Trudeau following the chaotic end to the G7 summit in Quebec where leaders of the world's major economies clashed over tariffs.

Navarro, for his part, suggested that he was following orders - but made a poor choice of words in doing so.

"My mission was to send a strong signal of strength". "I own that; that was my mistake, my words". "The Canadians will regret this action by their prime minister", Gorka said.

"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, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he 'will not be pushed around, '" Trump fumed on Twitter.

"I actually like Justin, you know, I think he's good, I like him, but he shouldn't have done that", Trump said.

"And I see the television and he's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States and I say push him around?". When asked by the Journal interviewer if he was apologizing, Mr. Navarro said, "Yes, absolutely".

"We finished the (G7) meeting and really everybody was happy".

Bilous said the trade tussle brings home to many the need for Canada and Alberta to increase trade with other markets, especially in Asia.

"Very dishonest and weak", he said.

"I thought he should have kept his big mouth shut, because I don't think that helps us in foreign policy. And it won't even be tough".

He added that Canada will "move forward with retaliatory measures" on July 1 against the U.S. That warning is apparently what set Navarro off.

The United States has alienated Canada and other allies by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, arguing that they posed a threat to USA national security. China has vowed to retaliate and said further negotiations over trade with the US will be impossible if the tariffs are implemented.

Trump has repeatedly threatened to withdraw the United States from NAFTA and negotiate bilateral deals with Canada and Mexico.

Canada is the U.S.'s largest trading partner, and the US economy would struggle to make up for Canada's absence, Heyman noted.

Trump's extraordinary outburst in recent days appeared aimed at striking a chord with voters who support his "America First" agenda.
