Australia urges end to US-Canada dispute

Australia urges end to US-Canada dispute

Donald Trump's trade adviser has labelled Canadian premier Justin Trudeau a back-stabber unworthy of the USA president's time after the acrimonious end to the G7 summit.

"I think he set the news in a completely wrong direction as he headed off to Singapore", Heyman said.

"My mission was to send a strong signal of strength", Mr Navarro said at the event.

"In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message", Navarro said. European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted: "There is a special place in heaven" for Trudeau.

Trump issued a statement on Tuesday in which he promised Trudeau's statements would end up costing Canada "a lot of money".

Trump is still angry at Trudeau for a perceived slight during a speech by the Canadian Prime Minister following the G-7 meeting.

There was nothing new in what Trudeau said, having previously stated that Canada was "insulted" Trump said metal tariffs were necessary for national security reasons.

A viral video of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau giving a press conference appeared to show his left eyebrow "falling off". On Tuesday , Trump said: "We have a big trade deficit with Canada.it's close to $100 billion a year deal loss".


Mr Trump's advisers said the U.S. president believed he had been stabbed in the back by Mr Trudeau over United States tariffs.

At a news conference Tuesday after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump recounted his recent tough exchanges with Trudeau.

Canadian lawmakers unanimously voted to oppose the U.S.' "illegitimate tariffs" on Canadian steel and aluminum and condemned disparaging statements made by the Trump administration about Canada. "That's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference".

The Trudeau hate began after the Prime Minister held a press conference and told reporters that the new USA tariffs on steel and aluminum are "kind of insulting" and that Canada "will not be pushed around".

Navarro then went on Fox News and harshly criticized Trudeau in one of the fiercest attacks aimed at a foreign head of state by a relatively obscure administration official.

"It is our position and, indeed, the position of the Prime Minister, that supply management must remain in place if NAFTA negotiations are going to come to a successful conclusion", MacLauchlan said. In a series of tweets, the U.S. president called him "very dishonest and weak" and accused him of making false statements. "Canada. Maybe we need a northern wall", he said.

"I know it didn't look friendly. 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".
