Mulroney says he's 'never seen anything' like Trump surrogates' attacks on Trudeau

Mulroney says he's 'never seen anything' like Trump surrogates' attacks on Trudeau

Republican Senator Bob Corker said legislation would be introduced this week that would force Trump to obtain congressional approval before imposing tariffs on national security grounds.

It came sandwiched between tweets railing against Canada, Germany, and the European Union over their "unfair" trade with the United States, and accused them of taking advantage of American workers.

Donald Trump's trade adviser has labelled Canadian premier Justin Trudeau a back-stabber unworthy of the U.S. president's time after the acrimonious end to the G7 summit. "And that's a very profitable answer, if we have to do it", Trump said.

There were two crucial points that didn't satisfy the USA delegation, the Canadian media points out.

Officials have stressed the two countries' extensive trading relationship and pointed out that Canada is the top export destination for 35 USA states and that 9 million jobs in the United States depend on trade with its northern neighbor.

Liberal MP and former dairy farmer Wayne Easter said there was a real sense of panic building in his P.E.I. riding over the implications of Trump's pronouncements following his departure from the G7 gathering. "He really, actually, you know what, he did a great disservice to the whole G-7".

Among other insults the president levelled at the PM, Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak", and accused Canada of ripping the US off in trade.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Navarro said.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has paid tribute to Canadian PM Justin Trudeau's leadership after a G7 summit which she described as "difficult".




This was in response to Trump's own tweets calling Trudeau "dishonest and week" and proclaiming that the United States will not be signing the G-7 communique due to Trudeau's "false statements" and tariffs imposed on the United States.

Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, suggested that Trump saw Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before the summit with Kim. "Kim must not see American weakness".

At the same time however, it put Trump in the position of going into a crucial summit at odds with countries he needs on his side to pressure North Korea to move toward dismantling a nuclear arsenal that threatens the United States. "He can't do that".

Trudeau has so far not commented on Trump's tirade.

"Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal", Trump added. The president also repeated claims that Canada overtaxes American dairy products under its supply management system and complained about Canadian automobiles flooding the USA market.

Trump has consistently railed against what he claims are unfair trade practices by some of America's biggest trade partners, including Canada - in particular Canada's supply management system, which levels tariffs of up to 300 per cent on imported dairy products.

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

On Tuesday, Trump kept up the attack on Trudeau.
