Trudeau 'stabbed us in back' on trade, says Trump chief economic adviser

Trudeau 'stabbed us in back' on trade, says Trump chief economic adviser

"We are being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries", Trump told a news conference on Tuesday.

The attack on a longtime ally and its leader drew sharp criticism.

In a statement to the House of Commons, Mrs May made clear that the United Kingdom intends to honour the commitments it signed up to at the meeting in Canada, even after the U.S. president dramatically repudiated them in an end-of-summit tweet. Earlier that day, Trump also tweeted: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the USA massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

It's a startling attack on the leader of the USA neighbor and ally. Big trade barriers against USA farmers, and other businesses, will finally be broken.

Kudlow added that Trump had made the decision to pull out of the agreement in an attempt to save face ahead of his historic summit with North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, in Singapore.

On Monday, European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said the EU "stands fully behind" the statement and "will continue to stand up for an global, rules-based, multilateral system".

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro said in an interview with "Fox News Sunday".

The seizure of those documents led Trump to declare "Attorney-Client privilege is dead!" "Not a good look and a disaster for Mr. On Wednesday, ABC News and other outlets reported that Cohen was expected to lose legal representation.

"He (Trump) is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea", Kudlow said. Trudeau stuck our president in the back.

"It would be with regret but it would be with absolute certainty and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1 applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applies to us", Trudeau said at a press conference closing the summit.

Trump's attacks have Canadian businesses that use aluminum and steel very anxious, said Ontario Conservative MP John Brassard, who added that there is real concern that there will be serious job implications in very short order. Can't do it in person.

At issue are US tariffs against Canada and Trudeau's effort to retaliate against its neighbor - as well as Trudeau's comment to reporters that all seven leaders had come together to sign a joint declaration after the G-7 meeting. "We are very measured".

It came in response to what he claimed were "false statements" by Canadian premier Justin Trudeau.

The motion in parliament, introduced by the opposition New Democrats, rejected "disparaging ad hominem statements by U.S. officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations".

In response, Macron said in a statement France would stand by the G-7 joint communiqué - which includes a pledge by the seven leading industrialized democracies to "continue to fight protectionism" - despite Trump's refusal. "We're the closest partners in the world and you don't want to see a dispute over one particular issue poison everything".

Trudeau, in Quebec City for bilateral meetings with non-G7 leaders after the summit, did not comment as he arrived.
