Trump Shuts Down CNN Reporter at G-7 Summit - Cortney O'Brien

Trump and his deputies lashed out at Trudeau for telling a news conference at the end of the G7 conference that Canada would not be pushed around on tariffs - a point the Canadian prime minister had made several times before.

The prime minister said although retaliation "is not something I relish doing", he would not hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests".

On trade, said she had been "very clear" that United States tariffs on European steel and aluminium imports were damaging and dialogue was needed to ensure the dispute did not escalate into a full-blown trade war.

US President Donald Trump was accused of "destroying trust" between world leaders in matter of "seconds" after he backed out of the G7 agreement via two angry tweets.

And the young Canadian leader, who has attempted to maintain a public facade of friendship with the USA leader, confirmed that he would regretfully impose retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods from next month to offset the steel levy.

According to the Quebec newspaper, talks quickly disintegrated after that and word spread that Trump was planning to hold his own private press conference before leaving the summit early.

Navarro also said Trump attending the G7 in Canada was a "courtesy" to Trudeau and that the President had "bigger things on his plate" in Singapore.

The venom of the exchange sent shockwaves through foreign policy circles and rattled markets, as another sign of the weakness of the Western alliance and of the threat NAFTA will collapse.

As might be expected, Trudeau's foreign minister Chrystia Freeland took his side.

"That's unconscionable. Anybody who represents the United States of America from the White House using that kind of language with any world leader of any type, I think is uncalled for", Heyman, who served under former President Obama, told CNN's Brooke Baldwin on Monday".

And the Canadian left, no friend of the American right, was quick to attack Trump's outburst.

Robert De Niro's F-Rated Message to President Trump at the Tonys
There may not be any angels in America , but according to De Niro there's at least one devil. "Boy, do we need that now". While CBS was quick to catch the swear for US audiences, the word wasn't censored during the Australian broadcast.

"This is a small-minded man not fit for public office".

Two points of the joint communique formulated by the G7 members were not negotiated with the USA president, but that didn't prevent the Canadian prime minister from announcing that all member-states had reached common ground on the final statement.

Trump's favorite USA network Fox News invited Canada's outspoken former conservative prime minister Stephen Harper, usually a reliable Trudeau critic, to discuss the crisis.

But even he was nonplussed by Trump's line of attack. "I don't understand the obsession with trade relations with Canada", he sighed.

The trade dispute was launched after Trump last week removed exemptions from steel and aluminum tariffs on imports from Canada, Mexico and the EU.

Behind his claim lies a difference in how the countries' calculate the trade figures.

Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake also took to Twitter on Sunday, saying: "Fellow Republicans, this is not who we are".

If these goods that originate in Canada and are eventually sold there without have been substantially worked upon in the United States are taken into account then Ottawa comes out the victor. And he urged Canada's industrial leaders to remain calm in the face of ongoing threats from the U.S president.

"Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal. There is a movement in our party that Trump's seized that got him the nomination, and eventually became president of the United States".

The blowup drew rebukes from nearly every other member of the G7 - a group containing the USA, the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, and Japan - and raised the possibility for more back-and-forth trade restrictions. "Let's be serious", a statement by the French government said Sunday. The president could mean exactly what he says: that the steel and aluminum tariffs are a direct, tit-for-tat response to Canadian dairy tariffs.
