Trump trade adviser: Harsh comments against Trudeau were a ‘mistake’

But after viewing the press conference on television Saturday, it set Trump off on a tweet storm, accusing Trudeau of dishonesty and calling him "weak".

"That co-operation to reduce costs, find efficiencies and open up trading within our own region will benefit not just small and medium enterprises, but the region overall", Bell said. "But actually we were just talking, the whole group, about something unrelated to everything, very friendly". I really did, other than he had a news conference, that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching. He learned. You can't do that. "You can't do that".

For one thing, Mr. Trump told the world that the USA and Canada were very close to agreement on a sunset clause - which, if true, would have been an embarrassing climb-down for Mr. Trudeau.

Trump's trade policy will hurt Canada, and Trudeau was well within his right to fire back. In October, Trudeau became the first Canadian prime minister to meet with the House Ways and Means Committee. He reacted to Trudeau's remarks by withdrawing the United States from a G7 communique and criticising the prime minister fiercely by tweet.

One particular source of his ire recently has been Canada's supply management system, which levels tariffs of up to 300 per cent on imported dairy products.

"On (Trump's) comments, I'm going to stay focused on defending jobs for Canadians and supporting Canadian interests", he said.

The attacks against Canada didn't end there, on Sunday, economic advisor Larry Kudlow accused Canada of stabbing the U.S.in the back.

Legal changes to make Trudeau the Supreme Leader of Canada for life with absolute authority are underway, after which Canada predicts it will be the recipient of a great deal of admiration and courteous attention from a fawning Trump.

Astronomers gathered in Jebel Hafeet on Thursday morning in a bid to spot the new crescent moon signalling the end of Ramadan . Reports from Saudi Arabia said the Royal Court is in a meeting and an official declaration is expected shortly.

Trump didn't help matters by attacking pretty much everyone at the summit.

On Tuesday Trump reiterated his belief that the United States is "being taken advantage of by virtually every one" of the countries in the G7.

He and other US politicians have long demanded Canada's system of domestic dairy protections either be abolished or heavily modified to give American exports a bigger share.

"I don't care how mad, how angry you are, you don't treat the head of state of another country like that unless you are getting ready for a military engagement of some kind", he said. Perhaps they were trying to show the power they have.

But tension between the North American neighbors goes back more than a century, surviving episodes of tempestuous relations.

The G7 summit came after the Trump administration made a decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union (EU), Canada and Mexico, which had drawn strong opposition from the domestic business community and US major trading partners.

The motion acknowledges the close and mutually beneficial relationship between Canada and the United States, but says they "strongly oppose" the "illegitimate tariffs" now imposed by our southern neighbours.

A decade ago, Canada had a US$78 billion trade surplus with the U.S. That surplus was more than halved to US$32 billion five years ago and it was halved again to US$17 billion last year.
