Dem Congressman Sides With Trump, Slams Trudeau on Trade

Betrayal’ by Canadian prime minister ‘stabbed us in the back

"As a representative of IL, a state with one of the most important trade relationships with Canada, I have every desire to see our negotiations with Canada continue productively and beneficially, but Prime Minister Trudeau is sabotaging that cause by driving both sides into their corners instead of encouraging a more diplomatic dialogue", Krishnamoorthi said.

However, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau later said in a press conference after Trump left the summit that retaliatory tariffs against the US would still be implemented on Jul. 1.

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau walks off the stage after speaking at a press conference at the G7 leaders summit in La Malbaie, Que., on Saturday, June 9, 2018.

Trump tweeted his reversal after what he called "false statements" by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who he labeled "dishonest and weak".

Minutes after the publication of a joint communique that was approved by Trump and other Group of Seven leaders at a summit in the city of Quebec, the United States leader announced on Twitter that he was retracting his support.

The summit ended in disarray: US President Donald Trump said the US would not endorse the joint statement from the summit.

"[Mr Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Mr Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council who had accompanied Mr Trump to the summit of wealthy nations on Saturday, said on CNN's State of the Union.

Friday morning he was spitting again: "Canada charges the US a 270% tariff on Dairy Products!"

When asked if the president shares his views, Navarro said that the sentiment came from "Air Force One".

DOJ Won't Defend Obamacare in Lawsuit Brought by 20 States
Yesterday, the Trump administration's Department of Justice dropped a bombshell in a rural Texas federal courthouse. Without the tax penalty, they argue, "the Court should hold that the ACA is unlawful and enjoin its operation".

Kudlow says Trudeau's actions were a "sophomoric play" and says the prime minister stabbed his U.S. allies in the back, which he argues did a great disservice to the whole G7.

Kudlow said the president was merely flexing his muscles ahead of the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore on Tuesday.

"Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks. and we refrain particularly from ad hominem attacks when it comes from a close ally", Freeland told reporters in Quebec City on Sunday. "So he holds a press conference - the president is barely out of there on the plane to North Korea, and he starts insulting us, he starts talking about the U.S.is insulting Canada", Kudlow said.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said at the G7. President Trump is sitting alone on one side of a table.

At a rare solo news conference before heading to Asia, Trump said he pressed for the G-7 countries to eliminate all tariffs, trade barriers and subsidies in their trading practices.

White House Trade Adviser Peter Navarro had even harsher words for Trudeau. "And that ends", Trump said.

"I understand the president was upset", Feinstein told CNN.

Ford also tweeted in standing "shoulder to shoulder with the prime minister and people of Canada" he said "my number one goal is to protect jobs in Ontario, starting with my unwavering support for our steel and aluminium workers".
