Fast facts on Trump's clash with allies over trade

The Latest: Merkel finds Trump's action sobering, depressing

"And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did at that stunt press conference". The two then signed a joint agreement.

Navarro said Canada has dumped lumber into the USA and erected high barriers to harm wheat, barley, beer, spirits and dairy at a disadvantage.

The trip is meant to highlight cooperation between the two countries. Taking to Twitter, he said that there is a "special place in heaven" for Trudeau.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce rang the alarm Monday about the potential for hundreds of thousands of job losses as the result of Trump's tariffs, and what could be over a million more if the Americans pull out of the NAFTA deal.

Canada is facing penalties of 25 per cent on Canadian steel and 10 per cent on aluminum, but Ries says there's still hope no tariffs will be imposed.

USA trade advisor Peter Navarro, speaking on Fox News Sunday, reinforced that message.

Mr. Trump's actions led to an extraordinary juxtaposition: an abrupt public feud and deterioration of ties between the USA and Canada at the same moment as warm words and a detente between the US and North Korea. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.

Rounds said he believed there would have to have been a significant "violation of trust" between G7 leaders for Trump to have responded in such a hostile manner.

He said he felt deceived by Trudeau's referring to U.S. tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum as "insulting" and threatening to impose retaliatory penalties of his own.


British Prime Minister Theresa May offered some support for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the fallout from the Group of Seven leaders meeting in Quebec, but she stopped short of condemning critical comments made by U.S. President Donald Trump's trade adviser.

But Mr Trump insisted it would be an "asset" to have Vladimir Putin back at the summit table.

Theresa May has vowed that Britain will continue to work for global agreement on issues like trade and security, following a G7 summit at which Donald Trump clashed with America's traditional allies.

Such statements are not objectively true or false, but they appear to be what triggered Trump's outburst.

Trump says it "didn't look friendly" but it was "very friendly".

White House aide Larry Kudlow tells CNN's "State of the Union" says Trudeau has done a "great disservice" to the G-7 by saying Canada had to stand up for itself and that the US was responsible for the problem with tariffs.

European allies on Monday backed Trudeau in the spat with Trump and stressed that they will retaliate against the USA tariffs with duties on US goods.

"The European Commission sticks to the final declaration communique and will take all the necessary action at our level to achieve and promote the objectives set therein".

The second issue was United States' insistence on "reciprocal" trade, the source said.

Ries says that strong stance could help more Americans realize they don't want a trade war with Canada.
