Trump continued with his tweets overnight, railing against countries that he said have trade surpluses with the United States, even as he was preparing for a crucial one-on-one summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in Singapore.
Trudeau triggered Trump´s fury when he said that citing United States national security interests as justification for slapping tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum exports was "insulting". The U.K. and USA continue to enjoy a special relationship, she said, which means that "when we disagree with the United States, and with the President, we're able to tell them".
U.S. President Donald Trump's blistering attack on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has driven bilateral relations to their lowest point in decades and left Ottawa with few options for averting a trade war with its much bigger neighbor.
In a tweet posted Saturday evening, Trump said his decision to rescind support for the statement was based on "false statements" made by Trudeau during a press conference he gave, as well as "the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs" on US companies.
For good measure, Trump sent out more tweets the morning of June 8 before his arrival in Quebec - "Canada charges the US a 270% tariff on Dairy Products!"
May 31 - The Trump administration announces that Canada will no longer be exempt from steel and aluminum tariffs, prompting the Trudeau government to announce its own counter-measures. "It's very important, the progress we have made with the G-7... collectively working on our defense, improving the lot of all of our citizens, better trade agreements".
The president cites national security for imposing a 25 percent tariff on Canadian steel, and 10 percent on aluminum. So it is even more unusual.
The trade dispute was launched after Trump last week removed exemptions from steel and aluminum tariffs on imports from Canada, Mexico and the EU.
The motion calls on the House to recognize the importance of Canada's "long-standing, mutually beneficial trading relationship" with the USA, "strongly oppose" the "illegitimate tariffs" imposed on steel and aluminum, stand "in solidarity" with the Trudeau government's decision to impose retaliatory tariffs and remain united in support of the supply management system of regulating Canada's dairy and poultry industry. "They surely can not be that upset about what the prime minister said", according to a second Canadian official. The official, Peter Tusk tweeted that "there's a special place in heaven for Justin Trudeau".
Trump wasn't alone in attacking Canada: Two of the president's highest-ranking economic advisers also joined in.
Krueger said the strong words most likely reflected the president's thinking.
"The withdrawal, so to speak, via tweet is of course. sobering and a bit depressing", German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Sunday in a TV interview. We negotiate in good faith but we won't be pushed around.
"International cooperation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks", he said in a statement. "That means not just tariff-free, but also dismantling barriers to trade and it also means ensuring that there are no anti-competitive unfair subsidies", she told MPs.
In a mocking tone, Kudlow rattled off the reasons Trudeau offered for his barbed critique of Trump's policies.
While there was "common ground" in some areas, she said she was "deeply disappointed" by United States trade policies. The prime minister, who has said Trump's tariffs were insulting, later retaliated through threatening to impose over $16 billion in retaliatory tariffs on a laundry list of American products.
