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

Posted June 13, 2018

"We were very close to making a deal with Canada on NAFTA ... then we leave and he pulls this sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption", Kudlow said of Trudeau.

Trump, who had criticised Trudeau after the G7 meeting in Canada on the weekend, said the United States had a big trade deficit with Canada, and "a little balance" was needed.

At the summit's conclusion on Saturday, Trudeau reiterated that Ottawa was prepared to retaliate against the new tariffs if the United States did not back down, and said Canadians "would not be pushed around".

He delivered them the day after Trump himself criticized Trudeau and shortly after Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, insulted Trudeau himself.

During an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, Trump recounted seeing Trudeau's statement following the G7 summit in Quebec, Canada, during which the prime minister promised to fight back against the US's trade restrictions.

"We want to see the prime minister and the federal government stand up to the president", Bilous said Tuesday at the Global Petroleum Show in Calgary.

Noting the president said last week the most important part about his upcoming meeting with Kim Jong-un os "attitude", Heyman argued Trump "has had a really bad attitude with his partners and his allies".

The motion also said the House rejects "disparaging ad hominem statements by USA officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute".

Canada will have to make dairy concessions to get a US trade deal, but it does not have to mean dismantling supply management, Gifford said.

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 US administration's persistent trash talk.

"It's kind of like ... if you were sitting with a friend and then out of the blue, you just punched them in the face", he said.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump", Navarro said at the time. "And that comes right from Air Force One". "And I left the meeting, and I'll be honest, we're being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries very seriously". "Who picked the fight?"

The fight isn't just with Trudeau and Canada but with the best allies of the U.S., Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein of California said on CNN.

For over a year, the United States, Canada and Mexico have been engaged in tough negotiations to re-write the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

But the House of Commons wasn't the only place Trudeau found support. I think he should apologize to the prime minister.
