U.S. president Donald Trump took more swipes at Canada and its prime minister over trade issues as he settled in for a multi-day summit with North Korea in Singapore, contending that "fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal".
As the Trump administration's war of words continued, many Americans began to point out on social media the many times Canada has helped the United States, while sharing personal stories on why they are thankful for their neighbours to the north, prompting the hashtag #ThanksCanada to trend on social media Monday morning. Kudlow said the president won't "let a Canadian prime minister push him around".
Earlier today, Trudeau cheered Trump's bid to broker a deal to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons, but he stayed mum on the USA administration's persistent trash talk.
The US President gave a press conference at the seat of the summit in the Canadian town of La Malbaie shortly before he left the meeting to head for Singapore, where on June 12 he will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Efe reported. We just shook hands.
The leaders of the G7, the world's most powerful industrialized countries including Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Britain, Japan and the United States, meet every year to discuss collaboration on issues like world economy, climate change, security and peace. "And in fact the picture with Angela Merkel, who I get along with very well, where I'm sitting there like this. we're waiting for the document because I wanted to see the final document as changed".
In the same set of tweets, Trump said: "Justin acts hurt when called out!" President Donald Trump a sobering and depressing experience but says European leaders won't be taken advantage of on trade.
"People can't charge us 270 percent and we charge them nothing, that doesn't work anymore", he said.
Trump has drawn criticism in recent days for suggesting that Russian Federation rejoin the G-7. Sen. "And it won't even be tough". Canada argues that it still allows a higher ratio of sold milk to be imported from overseas than the USA does and that there is not necessarily a causal relationship between the US industry crisis and tariffs.
After Trump's angry tweets, Trudeau's office issued a brief response: "We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the G7 summit".
The Americans' criticism of Trudeau left a former Canadian prime minister, Stephen Harper, stumped.
Trump did not seem to think that this question was unreasonable. "Well, the in-factual, the non-factual part of this was they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said.
