White House ramps up verbal attacks on Trudeau

White House ramps up verbal attacks on Trudeau

At a news conference to close the summit of world leaders in Canada, Mr Trudeau said the people of his country would see the United States president's line on trade as "an insult" after a long history of cooperation between the countries. "And that's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt news conference".

Ms Freeland told reporters that she had met with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Friday and would speak to him later on Sunday, adding that she believes a deal to renew the North American Free Trade Agreement is still possible.

On June 1, US President Donald Trump's administration imposed tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from the European Union, Canada, and Mexico, resulting in massive backlash.

"But here's what the story is: We have been taken advantage of as a country for decades by friends and enemies both", Trump said.

The tweets Mr Trump posted after the G7 contained direct attacks on the Canadian PM.

After Trump had left the summit in Quebec he rounded on Justin Trudeau personally, suggesting the Canadian Prime Minister was "very dishonest and weak" and "acts hurt when called out".

Trump gave a wide-ranging news conference in Singapore on Tuesday following his landmark summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, in which the two leaders spoke for several hours.

Both heavy hitters of the first-person shooter world have officially been announced with Battle Royale modes . In the case of " Battlefield V ", it's not clear how large the mode is or how it will work.

We have to stand behind our prime minister - just as we did many years ago - in steadfastly placing blame where it deserves to be, and that's in Washington. Trump addressed the feud following his meetings with Kim in Singapore at a more than hour-long press conference.

Mr. Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest & weak" for his objections to the US tariffs. "It's very unfair, and it's very unfair to our workers, and I'm gonna straighten it out". He reacted to Trudeau's remarks by withdrawing the United States from a G7 communique and criticising the prime minister fiercely by tweet. And that comes right from Air Force One.

But the White House adviser did not say what precisely it was that Trudeau said at a press conference following the G-7 summit over the weekend that warranted the White House's aggressive response.

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday", Navarro said: "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump".

Canada has announced retaliatory tariffs on $16.6-billion worth of USA goods, from steel and aluminum to orange juice, pickles and bourbon.

Former Conservative cabinet minister James Moore, a member of the government's advisory group on NAFTA, hailed Trudeau's approach, refusing to react to "the noise, the bluster, the Twitter, the emotional outbursts".

"That's unconscionable", Heyman said on "CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin" Monday. "Well, the in-factual, the non-factual part of this was they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said.
