Trump vents anger on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, European Union and Canada's Trudeau

President Donald Trump says Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "learned" from the mistake of criticising him and it's going to cost Canada "a lot of money".

In a series of tweets, the USA president called him "very dishonest and weak" and accused him of making false statements.

President Donald Trump's trade tariffs on Canada are sparking retaliation.

Trudeau said after the G-7 meeting that the aluminum and steel tariffs imposed by the USA on Canada on national security grounds were insulting and that "Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

"Part of this is creating bargaining chips to sit down at the negotiating table". The the end of May imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum imports against Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

But the DFC's stance that it is unwilling to support more concessions may not be reaching politicians.

Mulroney has acted as an informal advisor on US trade to Trudeau's Liberal government. Since the 1970s, Canada has controlled supplies of dairy, poultry and eggs to match domestic consumption, and prices are set by a government corporation and provincial boards.

"Actually, we were just talking - the whole group - about something unrelated to everything, very friendly".

EU to Implement Counter-Measures Against US Tariffs
Canada's Justin Trudeau and other leaders had given closing press conferences and announced a US-backed joint statement. The G-8 was downgraded back to a G-7 following Putin's annexation of Crimea in 2014.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic responds to Manchester United speculation
Jose Mourinho is expected to sign another midfielder this summer despite agreeing a deal for Shakhtar star Fred earlier this week. Manchester United target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic insists he is focused on the World Cup and will decide his future afterwards.

Trump’s daughter, son-in-law made $82 million last year
Ms Trump reportedly earned $3.9m from a stake in Trump International Hotel and more than $5m from her personal brand. The disclosures also showed that Ivanka Trump owns an interest in that purchase through a family trust.

Processors and farmers would be less likely to modernize operations, Wiens said. "They don't take our farm products", Trump complained at the news conference Tuesday.

The US had a trade surplus with Canada of about US$7.7 billion in 2016, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, although Statistics Canada data show the US had a trade deficit of about US$14.6 billion.

"If you're a negotiator you have to know what's sensitive for the other guy and what does the other guy need to get in order to say there's a win-win outcome", Gifford said.

The G7 groups the United States, Japan, Germany, France, Britain, Italy and Canada.

"There had to be an agreement someplace that the president clearly felt other members had clearly violated, or at least the prime minister had violated", Rounds said.

"We strive to reduce tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers and subsidies", the statement said, which came despite Washington appearing intent on taking more punitive steps on trade.

Mr. Trump's actions led to an extraordinary juxtaposition: an abrupt public feud and deterioration of ties between the USA and Canada at the same moment as warm words and a detente between the US and North Korea.
