One map shows why Trump’s trade fight with Canada could end in disaster
Trump and Aides throw insults at Trudeau - It is hard to conceive how a leader of one of the largest countries in the world, President Donald J. Trump of the US could throw insults of the type which are alike to a child having a temper tantrum - at one of his country's closest allies, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Larry Kudlow, the White House economic adviser, also characterized Trudeau's remarks as a "betrayal".
"I have made it clear to [President Trump] that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said.
Trudeau said during a news conference Saturday that Canada will "move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1, applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applied to us".
His unexpected and extraordinary attack flummoxed Canadian officials, who have waged an 18-month campaign created to cultivate allies among US policymakers and business leaders in defense of Canada's interests. "They surely can not be that upset about what the prime minister said", according to a second Canadian official. Such a trade war would make products from other countries more expensive for US consumers and products from America more expensive in other countries.
"We've had American tariffs that have been put in overnight, Mr. Speaker".
"He really stabbed us in the back". Still, numerous Canadian officials, including Trudeau's spokesperson, noted that he said nothing new or anything that hadn't been discussed with Trump in private.
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. "We don't think that that is a useful or productive way to do business", she said. Tagging President Trump, he tweeted: Others just took the opportunity to laugh.
"Ultimately, that's what you want. We will act too", Merkel said.
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.
MacLauchlan said he supported the Prime Minister's retaliatory tariffs in response to USA tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum and called on opposition parties to join him in expressing support for the federal government.
