Trudeau criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'

Trudeau criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'

Canada's prime minister earned Trump's ire by giving a press conference, after the USA president left La Malbaie, in which he spoke critically of U.S. trade policy and said Canada would "move forward with retaliatory measures" in response to Trump's move to impose tariffs on aluminum and steel.

Mr Kudlow later suffered a "very mild" heart attack, the White House said Monday, but was in good condition.

Mr Navarro reportedly said on Tuesday his remarks were a mistake and his language was inappropriate.

Now that the Singapore summit has concluded, perhaps the White House will walk back most of the venom aimed at Trudeau. He said the Canadian leader must not have realised that Trump had televisions on Air Force One, allowing him to monitor Trudeau's news conference at the end of the G-7 summit.

"That said, this is going to be a massive headache for U.S. companies doing business in Canada, both from a public relations and consumer relations perspective".

G-7 leaders jumped to the defense of Trudeau and reiterated their support for their joint statement. Trudeau had used similar language in the past, and Canada threatened retaliatory tariffs before the G-7 got underway in response to the US duties on metal.

Trudeau stuck our president in the back.

On Monday, the House of Commons unanimously approved a motion showing "solidarity" with the Trudeau government's decision to impose retaliatory tariffs against the U.S.

Federal lawmakers unanimously passed a motion Monday saying they stand in solidarity on trade issues and "reject disparaging ad hominem statements by USA officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations".

Tuesday, Trudeau also offered support for Trump.

In response to the massive steel and aluminium tariffs imposed by the Trump administration, Canada which is one of the largest exporters of the same spoke out against the exorbitant duties.

Freeland said she had a "good conversation" Sunday with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, and that the pair would try to meet in Washington this week.

The U.S. President ratcheted up the Canuck-baiting Tuesday. That would devastate the Canadian auto industry, which counts on the USA for 85 percent of its sales, according to industry groups.

It said Canada would "reject disparaging and ad hominem (personal attack) statements by USA officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute".

His apology comes amid a war of words between Trump and Trudeau after the G7 summit in Canada.

The northern nation is trying to pivot away from the USA, but it's not easy. Canada accepted 18.3 percent of USA exports, ahead of Mexico and China, and is the top export market for 35 states. The prime minister is also nationalizing a pipeline to reduce reliance on American buyers.

Navarro then appeared on Fox News Sunday. Americans are thankful for Canadian artists like Leonard Cohen, Celine Dion and Drake as well as more significant historical acts like when the people of Gander, Newfoundland took in those whose planes were grounded in the town following the 9/11 attacks.
