President Trump Is Still Very Angry With Canada's PM Justin Trudeau

Earlier on Sunday, Mr Trudeau, who hosted this year's G7 summit, bore the brunt of an attack from President Trump, who took exception to certain statements the Canadian Prime Minister made on tariffs.

Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME said that while her state has experienced "frictions" with Canada over lobsters and other goods, the US should not be alienating one of its biggest trading partners.

Trump said a photograph released by German Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman that went viral captured a friendlier mood than what the snapshot conveyed to many analysts. The former reality TV star complained that he had been blindsided by Trudeau's criticism of his tariff threats when the prime minister said at a presser: "Canada will not be pushed around" and would "retaliate" with equal tariffs. The Trudeau government has announced it will impose dollar-for-dollar, retaliatory tariffs on metals and a range of other US products by July 1. Trudeau stuck our president in the back.

Trudeau said he had reiterated to Trump, who left the G-7 meeting before it ended, that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the U.S. "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference". Not long after Trump issued two tweets calling Trudeau "very dishonest & weak".

Back in 2016 Daimler announced it would conduct an internal investigation over its process of certifying emissions for its cars. The company had earlier said that it contested the legal basis for the finding that the Vito's engine controls were disallowed.

"I have great friendships", he told Stephanopoulos.

Kudlow, in a separate TV appearance, said Trudeau was "polarizing" and "really kind of stabbed us in the back". Top adviser Peter Navarro added further fuel to the fire, saying there is a "special place in hell" for the Canadian leader. It came in sharp contrast to a roar of disapproval among Canadian politicians, who banded together across party lines to denounce Trump's attack and praise the bilateral and trading relationship between the two neighbors. But the trolled Prime Minister had his staunch supporters too.

He added: "I actually like Justin, you know, I think he's good, I like him, but he shouldn't have done that". From promoting democracy and to fighting terrorism, "we're on the same page". "Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

In the end, Trump never visited the sessions on climate or the ocean, but held its own news conference, where he slammed "unfair trade" and promised to cut ties with countries that didn't adhere to a "zero tariffs", policy, then leaving for a summit in Singapore. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!", Trump wrote in a second tweet.
