Canadian dairy farmers say hands off their protections as Trump demands concessions

Tuesday, 12 Jun, 2018

"I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but it something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said.

Trump said he had a "good relationship with Justin". President Donald Trump attacked America's closest allies in tweets after leaving the meeting in Canada.

Washington's decision to impose retaliatory tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum tariffs on June 1, Trump tweeted, was because of Canada's high tariffs on some USA imports. And I say, push him around?

Mrs May said she made clear to Mr Trump that the USA levies were unacceptable - but she underlined the need for dialogue to stop the dispute from escalating. "But actually we were just talking, the whole group, about something unrelated to everything, very friendly".

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

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is cheering Donald Trump's bid to broker a deal to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons, but he's keeping mum on the US president's persistent trash talk against Canada.

Still, other Trump advisers had taken up the attack in appearances on Sunday's news shows, leveling more withering and unprecedented criticism against Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time. Keep it behind closed doors.

Burns, now a professor at Harvard University's Kennedy School, termed Navarro's comments "over the top embarrassing".

President Trump's rationale for lashing out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau does not add up. The negotiations will either be bilateral or trilateral with Mexico, he said.

Yet even as it did so, some in this country were calling for major reforms to the very system of protections for Canada's dairy, egg and chicken farmers that first ignited - and has continued to sustain - Trump's anger: supply management. "Who picked the fight?"

"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade any more".

"He really kind of stabbed us in the back", he said. "These guys just pulled away and punched Canada in the face, and I think it was a line crossed and a bridge too far", Heyman said. "I understand the president was upset".

Unbowed, Trump tweeted anew Monday morning from Singapore, repeating his criticism of US trade policies with Canada - he also took aim at Germany - in a multitweet rant that went beyond 200 words all told.

How should Trudeau respond to the White House's insults?
