Trump's Gigantic Trade Straw Is Breaking the GOP's Back

Among the many topics that came up was Trump's recent Twitter campaign against Trudeau, whom he has called "dishonest" and "weak".

Trump's threat comes after Trudeau defended Canada during the G7 summit in Quebec over the weekend, saying his country "will not be pushed around" in regards to the Trump administration's tariffs on steel and aluminum.

Trudeau did not immediately respond, but his office said on Saturday after Trump withdrew support for the communique that the prime minister had not said anything in his closing news conference he has not said to Trump before.

Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney was trying to calm the trade waters roiled by a dispute between President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau following the G7 summit, comparing the tempest to a "serious summer squall".

In the same set of tweets, Trump said: "Justin acts hurt when called out!"

Mr Trudeau and the European Union have vowed to take retaliatory action next month over United States tariffs on steel and aluminum.

"I see the television that he's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States". John McCain who responded with a very different message for US allies: "Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't".

UK Prime Minister Theresa May told MPs on Monday that she wanted to pay "a particular tribute" to Mr Trudeau for his leadership and skilful chairing.

Speaking for the first time about the acrimonious conclusion of the Group of Seven meeting in Quebec over the weekend, Trump said he felt Trudeau had mischaracterized the US position in a press conference after the summit.

Trump immediately grumbled about the media to Kim Jong Un
Moon Jae-in, South Korea's president, said after the meeting had started: "Perhaps the minds of our people are on Singapore ". President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un are set for a historic summit on Tuesday, June 12.

"We're being taken advantage of on trade", Trump said.

Trump went on to lambast fellow members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) for paying disproportionately less than the United States to maintain the Western alliance.

"I used language that was inappropriate, and basically lost the power of that message", Navarro said, according to a tweet from CNN economy reporter Lydia DiPillis. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" "But actually we were just talking, the whole group, about something unrelated to everything, very friendly". "Canada. Maybe we need a northern wall", he said.

Canada is America's largest trading partner, he said, adding that the USA economy would struggle to make up for Canada's absence in a tariff tit-for-tat.

"I had a very good meeting with the G7", Trump said, rejecting suggestions the summit was a failure.

"There are more jobs now posted than there are people looking for work in the United States, and we've cut immigration pretty substantially", he said, noting that the country's birth rate is low.

Ms. May also rejected President Trump's suggestion that Russian Federation should be brought back into the G7.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro drove the message home in an extraordinary assault on a close U.S. ally and neighbour.
