The attack on a longtime ally and its leader drew sharp criticism.
And it concludes with a direct shot at Trump, calling on the House to "reject disparaging and ad hominem statements by USA officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute".
"It's very unfair to our farmers, and it's very unfair to the people of our country", Trump said Tuesday in Singapore.
MacLauchlan said he supported the Prime Minister's retaliatory tariffs in response to US tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum and called on opposition parties to join him in expressing support for the federal government.
"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade", he added in response to the threat of the retaliatory tariffs against the US.
Commentators saw a parallel in past tensions between Trudeau's father and Richard Nixon, when the then-leader of the United States called Trudeau senior, in private conversations, a "pompous egghead" and a "clever son of a bitch". "$800 Billion Trade Deficit ..." "We have been, our trade is a disaster, our trade deals". "The European Union had a $151 Billion Surplus-should pay much more for Military!" Germany pays 1% (slowly) of GDP towards North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, while we pay 4% of a MUCH larger GDP.
The former Conservative prime minister said that while he believes the dispute is serious, that doesn't make it "lethal". We protect Europe (which is good) at great financial loss, and then get unfairly clobbered on Trade.
The outburst against Trudeau, and by association the other G7 members, is only the latest incident in which Trump has clashed with America's closest allies, even as he has had warm words for autocrats like Kim and Russia's Vladimir Putin.
As might be expected, Trudeau's foreign minister Chrystia Freeland took his side.
At a news conference after his meeting with Kim, the president said the Canadian leader must not have realized that Trump had televisions on Air Force One, allowing him to monitor Trudeau's news conference at the end of the G-7 summit.
United States President Donald Trump's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Sunday accused Canadian President Justin Trudeau of backstabbing them. Can't do it in person.
