President Trump Is Still Very Angry With Canada's PM Justin Trudeau

Thursday, 14 Jun, 2018

But Trudeau's Office said in a statement that the Canadian prime minister has been consistent with Trump both in public and private conversations.

Earlier on Tuesday at the Washington conference, White House Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett said the U.S. and Canada need to "take a deep breath".

At an event hosted by the Wall Street Journal, Mr Navarro said he had made a mistake. We just shook hands.

Kudlow suggested that Trump might have been deploying extra bravado to demonstrate strength before his meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

At his closing G-7 press conference on Saturday, Trudeau called United States steel and aluminium tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs. "Other than he had a news conference that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching", Trump said.

"It's very unfair to our farmers, and it's very unfair to the people of our country", Trump said Tuesday in Singapore. He learned. You can't do that.

The president would have broad cross-aisle support in cracking down on China for trade violations, Welch said.

The Canadian Prime Minister initially said Trump's claims that Canadian steel posed a national security threat were dishonest. "The day before, on Saturday, at the end of what was a successful and friendly G-7 summit, shortly after Air Force One and the President left Canadian air space, the Prime Minister of Canada held a press conference that this administration viewed as a breach of protocol and inappropriate".

No, it's not that Mr. Trudeau didn't understand that the U.S. President might get wind of something he said at a news conference beamed live around the world.

The the end of May imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum imports against Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

Trump's surrogates piled on over the weekend, with White House trade adviser Peter Navarro telling Fox News that "there's a special place in hell" for Trudeau - comments he later walked back. "$800 billion trade deficit", he tweeted on Monday.

Canada controls dairy supplies and prices and limits imports through high tariffs and has been long criticised by dairy-producing countries such as the United States and New Zealand.

Trudeau addressed the media on June 9 stating his intention to impose retaliatory measures on the U.S. from 1 July, as a necessary means to safeguard Canadian interests.

"It's kind of like. if you were sitting with a friend and then out of the blue, you just punched them in the face", said Heyman on CBC's "On the Money." Improved genetics and farm management techniques mean that cows produce far more milk than they used to.

David Henig, a former trade negotiator from the United Kingdom who worked on trade talks with the United States, told CNNMoney last week that obsessing over tariffs on goods is "completely bizarre" because they're already so low.
