US Amb. Bruce Heyman: They 'Punched Canada in the Face' US Amb. Bruce Heyman: They 'Punched Canada in the Face'

Canada's prime minister earned Trump's ire by giving a press conference, after the USA president left La Malbaie, in which he spoke critically of USA trade policy and said Canada would "move forward with retaliatory measures" in response to Trump's move to impose tariffs on aluminum and steel.

Fox News' Shepard Smith mocked President Donald Trump's feud with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Tudeau and the war of the words that followed and said the "U.S. might need a northern wall".

"I used language that was inappropriate", he said, according to Journal reporters.

Mr. Trump's actions led to an extraordinary juxtaposition: an abrupt public feud and deterioration of ties between the US and Canada at the same moment as warm words and a detente between the USA and North Korea.

Not all USA officials have joined Messrs. "We just shook hands!'" Trump said. He also said the USA had a trade deficit of $17 billion with Canada, though he implied that it might be as large as $100 billion. "I own that, that was my mistake, my words", he said at a Journal conference. People speculated that the Trump administration wanted to make an example of Trudeau as a warning to Kim Jong-un about post-summit reversals, which is a unusual way to treat an ally and key trading partner if true.

Findings from the study were scheduled for presentation Saturday at the American Society for Microbiology meeting, in Atlanta. The rate of isolation of Staphylococcus aureus was higher for families of lower socioeconomic status and those with children.

"Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!" the president tweeted. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did", Navarro said on the "Fox News Sunday" program.

"Very dishonest and weak", he said.

Trump says he watched Trudeau's news conference on Air Force One on his way to Singapore and was upset because he thought he and Trudeau had had a positive meeting in Charlevoix. A WSJ poll found that 58 percent of the executives gathered believed that United States trade policy is heading in the wrong direction.

Similarly, former interim Conservative leader Rona Ambrose, also a member of the NAFTA advisory group, said Trudeau is doing the right thing. "This is about our economy and millions and millions of jobs". Trump and Navarro in ratcheting up tensions with Canada since the tariffs were announced at the end of May.

The United States has already imposed a 25% steel tariff on imports from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union. He was asked why he was jeopardizing relations with long-standing allies like Canada while welcoming a historical USA enemy with open arms as a friend. "The wounds will heal, but the question [is] how does the relationship get impacted?"
