Canada PM safe for now as Trump attacks, but angry farmers loom

Canada PM safe for now as Trump attacks, but angry farmers loom

In a rare apology by a Trump administration official, top White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Tuesday walked back his inflammatory statement that there was a "special place in hell" reserved for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"At this moment in our history with our US neighbours, Canadians need to know that all sides of this House stand united as one", Ramsey said.

"I know it didn't look friendly", Trump said.

"Somebody told me the other day that a few months ago [Canada] raised [tariffs] to 295% for dairy products", Trump said at a press conference on Tuesday.

"We're just too damn good at what we do", said Gordon Speirs, who runs a 2,100-cow dairy farm in Brillion, Wisconsin.

The move has been roundly criticized by Canada and the European Union, leading to heightened tensions at last week's summit of the Group of Seven wealthy democracies - just before Trump left for Singapore and a meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

"I see the television and he's giving a news conference about how he "will not be pushed around" by the United States. He learned, that's going to cost a lot of money to the people of Canada".

"If you make a mistake, you should it admit it, learn from it, don't repeat it", Navarro said.

Corker is trying to gather support for legislation that would give U.S. Congress, not the president, the authority to impose tariffs under the national security clause of U.S. trade law.

FG Declares Friday, Monday Public Holidays To Mark Eid-El-Fitr
Countries like India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh started observing fast from May 16 this year. The festival is celebrated over three days and is also called Choti Eid.

Some of Trump's aides also lashed out at the Canadian prime minister.

Canada's prime minister earned Trump's ire by giving a press conference, after the USA president left La Malbaie, in which he spoke critically of United States trade policy and said Canada would "move forward with retaliatory measures" in response to Trump's move to impose tariffs on aluminum and steel.

Freeland has widespread support in that view from a majority of USA senators, said the committee's Republican chair, Sen.

Trump took issue with Canada's supply management of dairy on a trip to Wisconsin previous year, calling it an "unfair" trade practice.

Warner said that Trump's behavior undermined USA leadership and spited allies that Washington is deeply reliant on.

U.S. President Donald Trump says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's assertion that Canada "will not be pushed around" will end up costing Canadians "a lot of money".

Navarro "should have kept his big mouth shut because I don't think that helps us in foreign policy", said Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch of Utah. "I was embarrassed that an American president acted that way, particularly when Canada and other nations were responding to the actions that Mr. Trump had taken". And in fact, despite Canada's tariff, the USA runs a surplus in dairy trade with its northern neighbor. Chrystia Freeland, the Canadian foreign minister, called them "inappropriate" and warned that ad hominem attacks are not a productive way to conduct global relations.

"They understand that we in Vermont value that relationship with Canada and we want to again come to some conclusion on that so that we can continue our trade with our largest trading partner", Scott said.
