One map shows why Trump’s trade fight with Canada could end in disaster
13 June, 2018, 12:34
President Donald Trump threw the G-7 summit into disarray Saturday, tweeting that the USA was pulling back its endorsement of the group's communique in part because of what he called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's "false statements" at a news conference.
Speaking for the first time about the acrimonious conclusion of the Group of Seven meeting in Quebec over the weekend, Trumpsaid he felt Trudeau had mischaracterized the USA position in a press conference after the summit.
Tensions have been building between the two countries for months, as President Trump has targeted Canada as one of the many countries he sees as giving American the short end of the stick in trade deals.
After the G-7 summit, Trudeau hosted a news conference where he said that the Canadian government "did not take" the USA tariffs against Canada lightly.
There were two crucial points that didn't satisfy the United States delegation, the Canadian media points out. Kudlow said the president won't "let a Canadian prime minister push him around".
However, the office of the US Trade Representative has said the United States ran a US$8.4 billion trade surplus with Canada in 2017.
"He really kind of stabbed us in the back", he said.
Shortly after the summit ended on Saturday, Mr Trump used Twitter to announce that he was ordering officials not to endorse the G7 communique agreed hours earlier by the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan.
Appearing on "Fox News Sunday", Navarro said: "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump". "And that comes right from Air Force One".
President Trump exited the G-7 summit like no president before him, blasting an allied head of state and torpedoing a joint communiqué.
White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Trudeau of betraying Trump with "polarizing" statements on trade policy that risked making the USA leader look weak ahead of the historic summit with Kim.
"He (Trump) is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea", Kudlow said. "He can't do that".
"I've never seen language like this, least of all from subordinates of the president directed at the prime minister of their greatest friend and ally", Mulroney said.
Yet, when asked how his administration would approach renegotiations of NAFTA, an agreement that would achieve totally free trade between the US and its North American allies, Trump suggested that the USA would fare better without the agreement at all. Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%.
The President's tweet about Justin Trudeau being "dishonest and weak" was undoubtedly rude and, as some like to put it, "against the norms" of global diplomacy. "Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!" he tweeted. She also said the European Union would "act" against the US trade measures. Trump reportedly pointed to specific trade deficits, particularly in the trade of goods, as evidence that the other leaders were taking advantage of the US.
The summit was seen as an opportunity to overcome disagreements on new tariffs imposed by the U.S. on imports.
