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

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

US President Donald Trump called Mr Trudeau "very dishonest and weak" after leaving the Group of Seven heads of government meeting in Canada on Sunday, shattering any hope its northern neighbour could avoid US tariffs on steel and aluminium, or renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Trudeau promised to fight back by slapping his own tariffs on American goods.

While President Donald Trump's split with the G7 conference was the main focus of the Quebec summit over the weekend, another controversy was brewing in the shadows.

European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said the EU "stands fully behind" the joint statement issued at the end of the G-7 meeting at a resort town in Quebec. He said that he didn't blame them for what he saw as an unbalanced trade relationship which hurts the U.S.

As he flew from Canada to Singapore on Saturday night, Mr Trump displayed his ire via Twitter, which he also employed to insult Mr Trudeau as "dishonest" and "weak".

"The president, coming late, stands before the cameras and says, "Why don't we add Russian Federation to the group".

Yet his top diplomat, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, downplayed the severity of the rift. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!

At the moment the photo was being taken, according to two senior diplomatic sources, there was a hard conversation taking place regarding the communique and the several issues the United States had leading up to it.

Mrs May paid tribute to Canadian PM Justin Trudeau's leadership at the summit in the face of Mr Trump's criticisms. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.

The American chain teased the change June 4 on Twitter , saying "For 60 pancakin' years, we've been IHOP ". In an avid marketing attempt, it turns out, IHOP is not actually changing its name permanently.

A theory that Justin Trudeau has fake eyebrows took over the Internet on Monday. Trudeau stuck our president in the back.

"[Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Mr Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council who had accompanied Mr Trump to the G7 summit said on Monday morning on CNN. "Kim must not see weakness". The Canadian leader pulled a "sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption", Kudlow said, that amounted to "a betrayal".

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland was measured Sunday, saying only that "Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries". "I think we're in a hard place now, I'd like to see this thing settle down".

In response, the Canadian official replied that "the prime minister and the president have very frank, direct, candid, honest conversations". Can't do it in person. "He's a pathetic little man-child".

Just as the Trudeau-hosted G7 meeting of the world's leading industrialized nations had seemed to weather Mr. Trump's threats of a trade war, the president backed out of the group's joint statement that Trudeau said all the leaders had come together to sign.

"I have made it clear to [President Trump] that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said.

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".

Prime Minister Trudeau on the other hand, did not balk at the statements but instead remained professional and mature - which is to be expected from a leader of one of the most respected and democratic countries in the world.
