Canada parliament condemns USA attack on Trudeau, country simmers

The View From Canada: G7 Summit, Tariffs And Trade

He vented his sentiments on Twitter just minutes after Trudeau's announcement with a scathing invective calling his host "very dishonest & weak". The U.S. president withdrew from it later, complaining he'd been blindsided by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's criticism of his tariff threats during a summit-ending news conference.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau then "acts hurt when called out!" "Canada, thank you for the ideal organisation of G7", Tusk tweeted.

Trudeau said in the news conference Saturday that Canada will "move forward with retaliatory measures" on July 1 in response to the Trump administration's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico.

Trudeau said the communique has "strong commitments about the actions we are going to take".

Trump fired off a volley of tweets on Monday further venting anger at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, the European Union and Trudeau.

Mulroney, who has a personal relationship with Trump and has been quietly advising the prime minister on how to deal with the mercurial USA president, likened Trump's weekend tirade to "serious summer squalls".

Even Hollywood actor Robert de Niro was weighing in. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One".

In a series of tweets from Singapore Monday, Trump kept up the tirade while contending that "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".

Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld says he could stay amid Manchester United links
Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld has suggested that he could stay at the club, despite reports of a stall in talks over a new contract.

Kudlow sought to tie Trump's reaction to the upcoming summit with Kim Jong Un, saying the North Korean leader "must not see American weakness".

The motion in parliament, introduced by the opposition New Democrats, rejected "disparaging ad hominem statements by us officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations".

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on why Trump had focused his tweets on Canada and the European Union over trade disputes and on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners over defense costs and not on his talks with Kim set for Tuesday.

Ms. May ducked Mr. Corbyn's question and when later asked by Conservative MP Crispin Blunt: "Trudeau or Trump?", she smiled and replied: "I'm not sure what activity he's asking me to undertake with either of them".

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", he said.

Within minutes of the official release of the document, Trump attacked Trudeau on Twitter over what he described as the prime minister's "false statements" during the closing news conference - and the president announced the USA would no longer endorse the communique.

The summit was seen as an opportunity to overcome disagreements on new tariffs imposed by the USA on imports. Still, numerous Canadian officials, including Trudeau's spokesperson, noted that he said nothing new or anything that hadn't been discussed with Trump in private.

Worldwide cooperation can not depend on fits of anger or little words.
