Canada parliament condemns Trump's attacks on Trudeau and tariffs

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he fully supports Donald Trump's efforts to get North Korea to relinquish its nuclear arsenal, but he won't respond to the US president's latest barbs directed at Canada. "That was my mistake, those were my words".

Trump says Trudeau "probably didn't know that Air Force 1 has about 20 televisions".

Following Trump's departure from the G7 summit, Trudeau said Saturday at a press conference that US steel and aluminum tariffs against Canada on national security grounds were "kind of insulting" and that Canada "will not be pushed around".

President Trump was rebuked by Canada's House of Commons for lashing out at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after leaving the Gang of Seven summit in Montreal this weekend.

European Council President Donald Tusk used Navarro's phrasing in a tweet backing Trudeau later Sunday.

"Very dishonest and weak", he said.

Canadian lawmakers unanimously voted to oppose the U.S.' "illegitimate tariffs" on Canadian steel and aluminum and condemned disparaging statements made by the Trump administration about Canada.

Speaking to CNN today, Trump adviser Larry Kudlow says he personally negotiated with Trudeau during the two-day G7 summit in Quebec's Charlevoix region and insists the United States agreed to the language in the communique in good faith.

Others think that he’ll continue to use the picks himself and construct a young core that can emerge after the Cavaliers vs. Fultz is an ideal scoring guard to run alongside him, and can also take over point guard duties if the Simmons experiment fails.

"If Kim shakes Trump's hand and receives lavish praise from President Trump and tries to play President Trump - look what happened to Canada - bad things are going to happen", said Graham, the hawkish South Carolina Republican. "He'll learn, he can't do that", Trump said.

"It's very unfair to our farmers, and it's very unfair to the people of our country", he said.

Navarro was not the only Trump cabinet member to sound off on Trudeau.

"Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries", Freeland said. The sentiment was echoed by two of the president's top advisers on Sunday, who claimed Trudeau stabbed the U.S.in the back.

At a news conference Tuesday after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump recounted his recent tough exchanges with Trudeau. And I say, push him around?

"I think he should apologize to the prime minister, but more importantly, he should apologize to the Canadian public", Heyman, who served under President Barack Obama from 2014 to 2017, added, saying he was "deeply disappointed" to see what he called Navarro's lack of professionalism".

The communique said the leaders of the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan agreed on the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism.

Even for a presidency as capricious as Trump's, his action marked a new blurring of lines between his personal feelings towards other leaders, and USA government policy. "Politicians can get into disagreements and they can have heated disputes but you have to think about where does this go, how bad could it get and the disputes are over a really, really small share of GDP".
