European Union backs Canadian PM Justin Trudeau after Donald Trump's sharp words

After Trump left the event, he launched a scathing attack on Canada's tariffs, while Trudeau called the USA president's steel and aluminum imports tax "kind of insulting", and insisted that Canadians "will not be pushed around" when it comes to further talks.

Those tensions boiled over on Saturday, with Trudeau and European leaders reaffirming plans to institute retaliatory measures and Trump lashing out in response by refusing to endorse the the G7 communique, a negotiated statement on shared priorities among the group.

U.S. President Donald Trump thinks our prime minister is "dishonest" and "meek and mild". The Canadian leader did not attack Trump personally and expressed regret over the turn of events.

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

Canada is on of the US's largest trade partners, with $673.9 billion worth of goods and services going between the two countries in 2017.

His Twitter rant on Monday continued: "Why should I, as President of the United States, allow countries to continue to make Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our Farmers, Workers & Taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay?"

Yet his top diplomat, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, downplayed the severity of the rift.

Presumably, as Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale pointed out on Twitter, Kudlow was upset that Trudeau's comments could hurt Trump's chances of impressing Kim Jong Un ahead of his meeting with the North Korean dictator in Singapore this week.

"The answer is simple: yes, we will obviously work with all members of this House to stand up for Canadian workers", LeBlanc said.

Trump has framed the topic of trade agreements as an issue of national security, a stance backed by the advisers he has stocked in his White House, including the new National Security Advisor John Bolton.

"I have made it very clear to the President that it is not something we relish doing, but it something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said. Among other things, she said the government should be preparing to keep pace with corporate tax cuts and tax breaks south of the border. He did him a favor, and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique.

In a statement to MPs on the summit, Mrs May praised Mr Trudeau's "skilful" handling of proceedings and said the United Kingdom would honour all of the commitments agreed, on security, the environment and other issues.

Trudeau: "The president will continue to say what he says at various occasions".

On Sunday's CNN's "State of the Union", Kudlow called Trudeau's criticism of USA tariffs "non-factual", adding that Canada had "enormous tariffs" on us imports.

In response to the initial tweets critical of her country and prime minister, Canada's foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, said her nation "does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks". "Using that type of language is not professional, it's not called for, and I tell you, I was deeply disappointed to see this lack of professionalism on his part".

President Donald Trump told French President Emmanuel Macron that the European Union is worse than China on trade during a conversation that portended the tense end to this year's G7 summit.

As for Trudeau, he kept his class in the Twitter war.
