U.S. can no longer take allies' support for granted after G-7

White House Director of Trade Policy Peter Navarro dodges the press after speaking on Fox News at the White House in Washington DC

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Sunday that "Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries". "That was my mistake, those were my words".

Trump himself attacked Trudeau on Twitter as "dishonest & weak" before backing out of a joint G7 statement, while top economic aide Larry Kudlow said Trudeau had "stabbed us in the back". Trump tweeted Saturday, June 9, evening while en route to Singapore aboard Air Force One.

Following Trump's departure from the G7 summit, Trudeau said in a press conference that he told the US president that his steel and aluminum tariffs were "kind of insulting", that Canada "will not be pushed around" and that it would not hesitate to impose retaliatory measures.

Trudeau says the Liberal government is looking forward to seeing the details of the agreement that emerged from Monday's historic meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. He also said Canada "will not be pushed around".

The coordinated attack against Trudeau from the USA officials, not to mention Trump's tweets calling Trudeau "weak" and dishonest, has led former US ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman to conclude the White House is trying to make Canada the scapegoat for troubled NAFTA negotiations.

Mr. Trump, for his part, continued to threaten Mr. Trudeau Tuesday at a news conference in Singapore after meeting with Mr. Kim.

Later during the show, Smith further said Trump's latest attitude towards Trudeau isn't a new thing and he has "been kicking allies in the teeth his whole presidency". "That was a mistake".

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada; he learned", Trump said wagging his finger.

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday (Jun 12) kept up his feud with America's closest allies over trade, saying he could not allow them to continue taking advantage of the United States.

"It's kind of like ... if you were sitting with a friend and then out of the blue, you just punched them in the face", he said.

Dairy has emerged as the latest flashpoint between the USA and Canada as they renegotiate the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement.

Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME said that while her state has experienced "frictions" with Canada over lobsters and other goods, the US should not be alienating one of its biggest trading partners.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he had said.

But the White House adviser did not say what precisely it was that Trudeau said at a press conference following the G-7 summit over the weekend that warranted the White House's aggressive response.
