Key Donald Trump advisers attack ‘back stabber’ Justin Trudeau


At his closing press conference, Trudeau called US steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs. "He didn't do that to my face, what's this all about?'" That was a mistake.

Among the many topics that came up was Trump's recent Twitter campaign against Trudeau, whom he has called "dishonest" and "weak".

Trudeau on Saturday pushed back against Trump's decision to impose stiff tariffs on Canada, vowing not to be "pushed around" by the U.S.

Asked about Navarro's comments, Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said, according to reporter Daniel Dale, "Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks".

Some 75 per cent of Canadian exports go to the USA, making Canada uniquely vulnerable to a United States trade war. Messrs. Trump and Kim are expected to meet face-to-face on Tuesday morning to discuss prospects of a deal in which North Korea would give up nuclear capabilities in exchange for help opening its economy.

"It's very unfair, and it's very unfair to our workers, and I'm gonna straighten it out. And I'll tell you this: To my friends in Canada, that was one of the worst political miscalculations of a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history".

"It would be with regret but it would be with absolute clarity and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1, applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applied to us", said Trudeau.

US President Donald Trump said he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were waiting for a final draft of a joint statement by G7 leaders when an iconic photograph was taken over the weekend showing the two leaders in what appeared to be a confrontation.

"That was, that was such an innocent picture", Trump told Stephanopoulos.

"If you're a negotiator you have to know what's sensitive for the other guy and what does the other guy need to get in order to say there's a win-win outcome", Gifford said.

"That picture was supposed to be a friendly picture", he continued.

He warned that the president's actions will have "lasting complications" and could put the U.S.'s place in the world order at risk. Eventually, a compromise was reached for the text, which reads: "We underline the crucial role of a rules-based global trading system".

"There had to be an agreement someplace that the president clearly felt other members had clearly violated, or at least the prime minister had violated", Rounds said.
