Tusk takes aim at Trump during Canada-EU summit

Trump's racist comments and rally chants 'completely unacceptable': Trudeau ‘Completely unacceptable’: Trudeau, EU leader react to ‘send her back’ chant at Trump rally

She's one of four Democratic congresswomen who he suggested should "go back" to their countries if they have criticisms of the United States.

Trudeau talked up the benefits of the Canada-EU deal this week in Montreal, where he met with European Council President Donald Tusk and Cecilia Malmstrom, the EU trade commissioner.

"I think the comments made were hurtful, wrong, and completely unacceptable", Trudeau said.

At a rally on Wednesday, the president's supporters chanted "send her back, send her back" after the President directed attacks at Ilhan Omar, a Somalian-born US Representative for Minnesota.

Trudeau's relations with Trump have improved steadily since June 2018, when the United States president called him "very dishonest and weak". Tusk noted that he was pleased to be in Montreal, where nobody had chanted to "send him back" to his country.

"For me, values are much more important than trade, sorry. And I think procurement is one of the areas where we have great possibility in Europe". "Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I will never change my opinion here".

Since the video of the Trump rally and the "send her back" chants went viral, Trump has spoken out to say he tried to stop the chanting, by 'speaking quickly.' Nonetheless, around the world, people remain outraged over these comments and subsequent chants.

"It's a positive signal about (the) rules-based multilateral order in a time when there are all kinds of pressures against it, including in Europe - Brexit, right?" said Lilly, who was an adviser to former prime minister Stephen Harper during the nine years of CETA negotiations that concluded under the Liberals.

He also announced that Canada has joined the Venice Commission - the Council of Europe's advisory body on constitutional matters - as a full member, to contribute to the Commission's independent expert constitutional advice to countries in Europe and beyond.

At the Summit, Prime Minister Trudeau and President Tusk highlighted the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), which is creating new opportunities and good, middle class jobs on both sides of the Atlantic. "After this summit, we're closer to finalizing an agreement, which would help preserve the function of an appeal system within the WTO until we find a more permanent solution".

Canada's Parliament has already ratified the pact with the support of the Liberals and the Conservatives, and so far, 13 European Union countries have ratified the deal with a vote in the French legislature scheduled for next week.

Canadian business groups and International Trade Minister Jim Carr have branded that letter as disappointing and disturbing given the previous approval of the deal by the House of Commons.

The survey involved questions on a wide range of free trade agreements signed by Canada, and found that CETA was not the only trade deal that needed additional domestic attention.
