Trudeau's criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'

Peter Navarro

President Trump may be fresh off a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, but he's still smarting from a perceived slight from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Navarro, a supporter of tariffs to help reduce the U.S.'s trade deficit and a longtime critic of China, turned his anger at Canada over the weekend as a Group of Seven meeting hosted by Trudeau ended in disarray and trade war threats.

He then compared his relationship with Trudeau with the North Korean leader.

Trump aides accused Trudeau of betrayal of Trump for his statement on retaliation.

Trump told a lengthy news conference in Singapore that Trudeau's assertion that Canada "will not be pushed around" will end up costing Canadians "a lot of money". Among other things, she said the government should be preparing to keep pace with corporate tax cuts and tax breaks south of the border.

Mr Trudeau and the European Union have vowed to take retaliatory action next month over United States tariffs on steel and aluminum. Trudeau stuck our president in the back.

She conceded in an interview on German public television Sunday that the meeting's outcome "wasn't a great thing". The EU also won't be "taken for a ride" in its trade conflict with the United States , she said.

The stern statement prompted nearly immediate backlash from Trump, who abruptly removed the US from a joint G7 communiqué he had backed just hours earlier "based on Justin's false statements at his news conference and the fact that Canada is charging massive tariffs to our USA farmers, workers and companies".

Trump's supporters also criticized Trudeau.

"I have great friendships", he told Stephanopoulos. "I know it didn't look friendly; it was reported as nasty both ways, I was angry with her - actually, we were just talking, the whole group, unrelated to everything, very friendly, waiting for the document to come back". Kudlow said Trump won't let people "take pot shots at him" and that Trudeau "should've known better". But the trolled Prime Minister had his staunch supporters too. "I don't understand the obsession with trade relations with Canada", he said on Fox's "Sunday Morning Futures", given that Canada is the biggest single buyer of American goods and services in the world. From promoting democracy and to fighting terrorism, "we're on the same page".

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", he said. "You know, we put out that picture".

On Tuesday Trump reiterated his belief that the United States is "being taken advantage of by virtually every one" of the countries in the G7. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!", Trump wrote in a second tweet.

Navarro continued, "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One".
