Mulroney says he's 'never seen anything' like Trump surrogates' attacks on Trudeau

Donald Trump lashes out again at allies over trade deficit and NATO spending

Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak", among other things.

Trump made his comments in a wide-ranging news conference in Singapore following his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Nevertheless, Trump appears determined to up-end the trade relationship, insisting that the United States is the loser, and has demanded that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) be renegotiated or abandoned. "We don't think that that is a useful or productive way to do business", she said.

USA trade officials are going further.

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.

Things got worse for trade between the US and Canada as our neighbors to the north announced retaliatory tariffs in response to the Trump administration's tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada and other USA allies.

Trump, who had criticised Trudeau after the G7 meeting in Canada on the weekend, said the United States had a big trade deficit with Canada, and "a little balance" was needed.

Antoine Griezmann to make shock announcement imminently

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland first announced "dollar-for-dollar tariffs" against the USA on May 31. Canada exports $300 billion worth of goods to the United States, while the US exports $282.5 billion worth of goods to Canada.

The U.S. -Canada spat escalated when at a news conference, Trudeau said Canada would take retaliatory measures next month in response to Trump's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

Trump was asked about the contrast between the respect he accorded Kim here Tuesday and the hostility he showed Trudeau in recent days, and what he would say to those who worry he is treating America's longtime friends, such as Canada, as enemies and its longtime enemies, such as North Korea, as friends.

Mulroney - who was prime minister when both the original Canada-U.S. Merkel also said the European Union would "act" against the US trade measures.

"I'm very confident that relationships between our countries, the United States and those G7 countries, will continue to move forward on a strong basis", Pompeo told reporters.

The communique - which had appeared to have papered over the cracks that surfaced at the summit - said the leaders of the US, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan agreed on the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism. "All Mr. Trudeau was doing was, in a rather gentle way, articulating the position his government - which would be the position of any Canadian government in these circumstances - so I don't view it as lethal", Mulroney said. "He should never have said it", Reagan said.
