Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) Defends Canada as Trump Launches More Attacks

Trump Takes More Swipes at Canada After Arrival in Singapore

The G7 summit came after the Trump administration decided last week to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada and Mexico, which has drawn strong opposition from US business community and quick retaliation from major USA trading partners.

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a Fox News interview Sunday, saying there was a "special place in hell" for Trudeau and any foreign leader who engaged in "bad-faith diplomacy" with U.S. President Donald Trump.

The verbal volleys by Navarro and Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, picked up where Trump left off Saturday evening with a series of tweets from Air Force One en route to Singapore for his nuclear summit Tuesday with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

In a series of tweets on Saturday, Trump slammed Trudeau for acting "very dishonest & weak" at the Quebec meeting and announced that the US will not sign the G7 traditional joint communique.

"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", Ms Freeland told reporters in Quebec City.

The issue of trade was the most controversial heading into the G7 summit in La Malbaie, Que., with Trump launching multiple barbs in Canada's direction in the days leading up to his arrival.

"The United States loses political influence in the rest of the world, and they also lose position as a centerpiece in efforts to find global joint mechanisms and set the agenda", said Solberg, who had been invited to attend the summit.

Back home, Canada's Green Party leader flat out called Trump a bully.

Ottawa has promised to retaliate against Washington's imposition of tariffs on metals imports from Canada, the largest supplier of steel to the United States.

Asked what Trudeau did that amounted to betrayal, Kudlow criticized the Canadian leader for holding a press conference in which he called USA tariffs "insulting". "The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the president". Meanwhile, President Trump told reporters Saturday he would know "within the first minute" of their meeting whether Kim is serious about making peace. "Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%", he wrote in the first of five tweets relating to the weekend's summit. "He's not going to allow the people to suddenly take pot shots at him".

"We can have disagreements but we don't have to be disagreeable", Heyman said.

"I have made it very clear to the President that it is not something we relish doing, but it something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said. I think that Trudeau has tried the right thing, he's been trying to use flattery and befriend Trump.

He also suggested something more nefarious may have been afoot when Navarro made the comments.

"He is an unprecedented president and he's outside of all of the normal boundaries of behaviour for an American president. That Canada could be considered a national security threat to the United States is inconceivable".

Two senior White House officials on Sunday blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over his earlier statements during the just concluded Group of Seven (G7) summit. The G-7 also includes Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan.
