White House adviser says Canada's Trudeau 'stabbed us in the back'

White House adviser says Canada's Trudeau 'stabbed us in the back'

Former US ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman said Monday that White House trade adviser Peter Navarro's comments about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were "unconscionable".

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Sunday accused Canadian Prime Minister of "attacking" President Donald Trump after Canada's leader announced reciprocal tariffs on the US and asserting his nation would not be 'pushed around.' Zachary Goelman reports.

Trump addressed the fight with Trudeau during a press conference following the North Korea summit, suggesting average Canadians will pay the price.

Trudeau is not Trump's only target in the growing trade war with the other members of the G7, which is made up of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the UK.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

The comments, made after Trump had left to go to Singapore for his much-anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, infuriated the US president. "We just shook hands!'" Trump said.

On Tuesday, Trump kept up the attack on Trudeau.

The group of seven nations that make up the G7 are Canada, France, the USA, the UK, Germany, Japan and Italy.

Trudeau's remarks prompted Trump to pull out of a joint communique that was a fragile consensus on the trade dispute between Washington and its top allies, Kudlow said.

Trump went on to say that the USA gets "unfairly clobbered" on trade despite "protecting Europe at great financial loss".

"Very childish and unprofessional behaviour", Gorka said.

Trump called the prime minister "dishonest" and "weak" on Twitter, and denounced a joint G7 communiqué that German Chancellor Angela Merkel said affirmed a commitment to "rule-based trade order".

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Trudeau of undermining Trump right before his meeting in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump has drawn criticism in recent days for suggesting that Russian Federation rejoin the G-7. Sen.

President Trump did the courtesy to Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit.

The motion calls on the House to recognize the importance of Canada's "long-standing, mutually beneficial trading relationship" with the US, "strongly oppose" the "illegitimate tariffs" imposed on steel and aluminum, stand "in solidarity" with the Trudeau government's decision to impose retaliatory tariffs and remain united in support of the supply management system of regulating Canada's dairy and poultry industry. "The European Union is brutal to the United States. Both of those things could happen", Trump said, warning that it would be "very bad" for Canada and Mexico if no deal could be reached among the three countries. "Well, the in-factual, the non-factual part of this was they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said.
