Canada's FM slams U S attacks on trade, diplomacy

"And I see the television, and he's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States". We just shook hands. No, I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau.

The stern statement prompted nearly immediate backlash from Trump, who abruptly removed the USA from a joint G7 communiqué he had backed just hours earlier "based on Justin's false statements at his news conference and the fact that Canada is charging massive tariffs to our us farmers, workers and companies". "You can't do that".

Trudeau has not reacted to the comments. And while she joined with Mr. Trudeau and other European leaders in opposing the USA decision to slap import tariffs on steel and aluminum, she urged continued dialogue.

President Donald Trump said Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's comments at the G-7 summit Saturday criticizing the US were "a mistake" that will "cost him a lot of money".

Trump's behavior at the G-7 summit was criticized by both Republican and Democratic lawmakers as being antagonistic of US allies. One of its early tweets read: numerous jokes were directed at the XX-year-old Canadian President, who bore the brunt of a twitter attack from President Trump and his White House advisers.

This year's annual G7 summit was marked by tensions and harsh words exchanged between President Donald Trump and other world leaders over trade. "And I left the meeting, and I'll be honest, we're being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries very seriously".


"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade any more". It's either 17 but could actually be 100 billion. You know they put out a document, I don't know if you saw it.

Canada's Consul General said the tariffs are the last thing his country wants to impose on Minnesota businesses. Perhaps they were trying to show the power they have. The likelihood of a trade war between the United States and Canada appears to be on the rise, and both sides are mulling more trade barriers.

The U.S. had granted some allies including Canada temporary exemption from import tariffs on steel and aluminum.

In recent trade deals with the European Union and a group of Asia-Pacific nations, Canada conceded larger tariff-free dairy quotas.

But Gregg Doud, the chief agricultural negotiator in the Office of the United States Trade Representative, told Reuters on Thursday that the US has "very serious concerns about the subsidies and the structure of Canada's dairy industry".
