Trudeau said nothing at G7 he hasn't told Trump in person: office

Patty Aguilar | 11 June, 2018, 02:49

Kudlow says the White House has taken issue with Trudeau's comments during the news conference that Canada must stand up for itself and that recently imposed us tariffs on steel and aluminum are "insulting".

Mr Trump has infuriated the European Union, Canada and Mexico by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.

The communique said the leaders of the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan agreed on the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism.

He rebuked Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for being "dishonest & weak" and making "false statements".

Trudeau's office, in turn, said the what the Canadian leader said on Saturday was nothing new.

On Fox News Sunday, White House Director of Trade Policy Peter Navarro also defended the president with adversarial language. The president is flying to Singapore to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

He was reacting to Trudeau's declaration that Canadians would "not be pushed around" and would hit back at punishing USA tariffs on metal imports with "equivalent tariffs". "Kim must not see American weakness".

Trump was doing Trudeau a favor by coming to Quebec for the G7 when he "had bigger things on his plate" with the North Korean summit.

China's May trade surplus with U.S
The Chinese Commerce ministry reiterated China's willingness to import more from the U.S. , but he did not offer details. President Donald Trump announced in March a 25-percent tariff on imported steel and a 10-percent tariff on aluminum.

The U.S. had a $17.5 billion goods trade deficit with Canada - its second-largest goods trading partner - in 2017, though it did have a goods and services trade surplus of $8.4 billion past year with its fellow North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) member, according to data from the U.S. Trade Representative's office.

Trump left the G7 summit in Canada early, then wrote on Twitter that Trudeau's remarks, including that his country would not be pushed around, "were very dishonest and weak".

Canada's foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, said her country "does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks".

"And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", he continued.

Other G7 partners also seemed stunned by Mr Trump's reaction, and pledged to support the communique.

Trump quickly responded by personally attacking Trudeau.

Trump issued the tweets from Air Force One just as Canada released the joint statement. So, I ask you: He gets up in the airplane and leaves, and then Trudeau starts blasting him at a domestic news conference?

Responding to Kudlow's remarks on Sunday-which came just as Trump touched down in Singapore after ducking out of the G7 summit early-Huffington Post reporter Matt Fuller wrote: "It's wonderful that Larry Kudlow thinks he's helping the U.S".
