Trump Aide Larry Kudlow Calls Justin Trudeau Trade Comments A 'Betrayal'

Trump Aide Larry Kudlow Calls Justin Trudeau Trade Comments A 'Betrayal'

Mr Trudeau has vowed retaliatory action next month over USA tariffs on steel and aluminium.

Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel talks with U.S. President Donald Trump at the G7 Summit.

Hours after Mr Trump withdrew his support for the joint statement and attacked Mr Trudeau, Mr Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro drove the message home on Sunday morning news shows in an extraordinary assault on a close United States ally and neighbour.

On the heels of a member of the USA administration telling Justin Trudeau there's a "special place in Hell" for him, the prime minister was given a wave of support as the House unanimously adopted a motion to stand united against US tariffs and tirades.

All of the countries attending the G7 meeting agreed to a communique showing shared priorities.

The top White House economic adviser accused Canada's prime minister on Sunday of betraying President Donald Trump with "polarizing" statements on US trade policy that risked making the American leader look weak on the eve of a historic summit with North Korea.

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", he wrote in one tweet that then went on to accuse Canada of imposing unfair taxes on United States dairy products.

"It can not be done by taking unilateral action against your partners", she said. He also said that it was "kind of insulting" that Trump used national security to justify the tariffs against a longtime ally, and announced that Canada would be implementing "equivalent tariffs" on July 1. Trump's own Office of the Trade Representative negates his bald-faced lie. "$800 billion trade deficit", he said. "They have tariffs on certain dairy and food products - 290 [to] 295 percent". "Both sides have to work together". We must put the American worker first!

But this is not the way to go about it. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) said on CBS' "Face The Nation" that "right now, the President is actually driving our allies away from us as we need them even more, while welcoming in the Russians". In fact, completely the opposite is true, especially when we are treating our Canadian brothers and sisters like pariahs after we've had each other's backs for decades.

Merkel: Russia can not return to G7 until progress made
German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday said she expected hard talks during the G7 summit in Canada later in the week. Many social media users began to share Merkel's , suggesting there's noticeable tension in the photo.

June 11 - On Monday morning Singapore time, Trump takes to Twitter yet again to accuse Canada of "bragging" about a trade surplus with the U.S. - "Then Justin acts hurt when called out!" Look forward to seeing them tomorrow.

Not all USA officials have joined Messrs.

Mr. Trump is also slated to visit London next month for a meeting with Ms.

While the agreement of legislators who are normally opposed on most fronts was remarkable, the anger also spread to pundits, officials, celebrities and ordinary citizens as Canadians vowed consumer boycotts of American goods and brainstormed insults of Trump on social media.

Ms. May also rejected President Trump's suggestion that Russian Federation should be brought back into the G7.

I ask again, as I do after every misstep Trump takes at home or overseas: Where are Republicans?

Hours later, Arizona Republican Sen.

After the G-7 summit in Quebec Saturday, Trump tweeted aboard Air Force One that the United States would not sign a joint statement.

Welcome to Trump's new GOP, I guess. So it is even more unusual. Welcome to the end of American exceptionalism and the rise of Trump's trade Tantrumism.
