Trudeau’s criticism will cost Canada ‘a lot of money’

Trump Withdraws Endorsement Of G-7 Communique Over Trudeau Statements

Although he insisted he had a good relationship with Mr Justin Trudeau, just days after leaving in disarray a G-7 summit the Canadian prime minister had hosted, Mr Trump took another dig at him, saying the United States had a big trade deficit with Canada and that "a little balance" was needed.

"Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries", Freeland said.

The motion also included a frontal assault on Trump and his White House advisers.

Trump's latest twitter tirade came after he arrived in Singapore for his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong-un.

In a string of angry tweets, Trump said the U.S. paid "close to the entire cost of Nato" to help protect countries that "rip us off on trade".

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

And chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Trudeau of betrayal and stabbing Trump in the back.

I think that he truly did not die in vain". "So talking about withdrawal of U.S. forces is something that needs to be really thought through".

The move caused consternation among other members, leading Trudeau to promise to "move forward with retaliatory measures" in a news conference scheduled after Trump had left.

Trudeau said that if Trump insisted on slapping steep tariffs on imported Canadian steel and aluminum, Canada would respond with retaliatory tariffs on USA imports. "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference".

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada; he learned", Trump said wagging his finger.

The insults stemmed from a closing G7 press conference on Saturday in which Trudeau called USA steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs.

The prime minister has kept a low profile since Trump called him "very dishonest and weak" and withdrew support for a Group of Seven communique reached at the summit Trudeau hosted in Quebec on Saturday.

Earlier on Tuesday at the Washington conference, White House Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett said the United States and Canada need to "take a deep breath". I think he should apologize to the prime minister.

"I want to pay a particular tribute to Prime Minister Trudeau for his leadership and skilful chairing, which enabled us after two days of negotiation between leaders to agree actions and a shared approach on some of the most pressing challenges facing the global community and our citizens", she told parliament.
