Trudeau's criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'

Trudeau's criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'

"We support the continuing efforts by the president on North Korea, (and) we look forward to looking at the details of the agreement", Trudeau said today prior to his weekly cabinet meeting. Kudlow explained on CNN that the administration was lashing out at Trudeau to show Kim that Trump was not weak.

Tensions have been building between the two countries for months, as President Trump has targeted Canada as one of the many countries he sees as giving American the short end of the stick in trade deals. But more importantly, he should apologize to the Canadian public. The Australian and New Zealand dollars also declined amid risk-averse price action.

"[Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said.

Trump didn't miss the opportunity to tweet again Monday, slamming Trudeau for acting "hurt when called out!"

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.

Navarro, the Trump trade adviser, said his harsh assessment of what "bad faith" Trudeau did with "that stunt press conference" on Saturday "comes right from Air Force One".

The insults were supposedly a response to the post-G7 news conference in which Trudeau repeated his diplomatic criticism of Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs and said he would stand up for Canadians.

A day before, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow also lashed out at Trudeau.

"I think we are all sitting with bated breath hoping that cooler heads prevail, but most of us believe there's an equal chance that they won't", said Dennis DesRosiers, president of DesRosiers Automotive Consultants Inc.in Richmond Hill, Ontario.

Over the weekend, President Trump suddenly retracted his endorsement of the final joint statement by the G-7 summit of world leaders, tweeting afterward he had instructed representatives "not to endorse" it. It's close to $100 billion a year loss with Canada.

Trudeau said that if Trump insisted on slapping steep tariffs on imported Canadian steel and aluminum, Canada would respond with retaliatory tariffs on U.S. imports. Keep it behind closed doors.

Mr. Navarro took flak from all sides for the comment.

"Now, those of us from ME are very aware that there have been frictions", she said, adding: "Those issues deserve attention, but we don't need to alienate Canada in the process". The negotiations will either be bilateral or trilateral with Mexico, he said.

"Everybody was happy, and then he gave out a little bit of an obnoxious thing", Trump said of the prime minister. "Who picked the fight?" I said maybe in the first minute.
