After 'difficult' G7 summit, UK's May warns against unilateral action on trade

President Trump went on with his advisers and attacked Prime minister Justin Trudeau by using words like "betrayal" and "stab". Larry Kudlow, Trump's chief economic adviser, told CNN that Trudeau's press conference addressing Trump's actions was "a betrayal". In fact, the Trump administration's concerns about Canadian trade centre on relatively insignificant concerns, such as the treatment of U.S. dairy products.

He called Mr Trudeau "dishonest & weak" after Mr Trudeau said at a news conference that Canada would retaliate for new United States tariffs. "Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!" he tweeted.

The House of Commons unanimously supported a motion presented by New Democratic Pary (NDP) MP Tracey Ramsey, condemning the USA actions given the "longstanding, mutually-beneficial trading relationship".

The former Conservative prime minister said that while he believes the dispute is serious, that doesn't make it "lethal".

Yet, when asked how his administration would approach renegotiations of NAFTA, an agreement that would achieve totally free trade between the US and its North American allies, Trump suggested that the USA would fare better without the agreement at all.

A boxing enthusiast who dons his gloves to work off the stress of the job in his rare free time, the Canadian prime minister will have to carefully measure his punches against the U.S. leader, who publicly accused him of weakness and dishonesty after the meeting of the G7 nations in Quebec at the weekend.

"We finished the (G7) meeting and really everybody was happy".

"The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the President", the statement read.

When Trump left the G7 summit on Saturday, that's exactly what he did. "Here in Canada, our federal government is delaying putting tariffs in place until July 1st", Aylward said.

The foreign affairs minister spoke to reporters in Ottawa and offered a markedly different tone from the attacks lobbed at Canada, one of the United States' closest allies, this weekend by President Trump and other members of his administration. "We don't think that that is a useful or productive way to do business", she said.

Ries says that strong stance could help more Americans realize they don't want a trade war with Canada.

Earlier today, Trudeau cheered Trump's bid to broker a deal to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons, but he stayed mum on the US administration's persistent trash talk.

After President Trump's decision to impose a 25 percent tariff on steel and a 10 percent tariff on aluminum imported from the E.U., Merkel warned the E.U. would be following Canada's lead, moving forward with countermeasures against the U.S.
