Trump Tariffs Slam Canada, EU-Not China

Peter Navarro, President Donald Trump's hardline trade adviser, walked back inflammatory comments about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday at a conference in Washington, DC.

The president also said the Canadian leader must not have realized that Trump had televisions on Air Force One, allowing him to monitor Trudeau's news conference.

Deploying distinctly Trumpian nicknames for the Canadian leader, Navarro said: "And that's what Bad Faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference". But here's what the story is: We have been taken advantage of as a country for decades by friends and enemies both, ' Trump said.

He also called Trump's meeting with North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un Tuesday "far more important" than the G-7.

"I do think it's an abuse of presidential authority to use the 232 waiver, and I've tried to pass a piece of legislation on the floor to counter that", Corker said after the meeting with Freeland.

As for Trump's own response, he predicted that Trudeau's remarks are going to cost Canada "a lot of money". He learned. That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada.

After facing harsh attacks on his character and leadership from the US president and his aides, Americans are coming out online to let the Canadian PM know that their president doesn't speak for them. Many Canadians are angry with Trump's treatment of Trudeau, and believe they are owed an apology.

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

There have been reports that Mr. Trump was upset because the President felt that after he had generously agreed to give in on a key Canadian sticking point - the US demand for a sunset clause that would see NAFTA renegotiated after five years - Mr. Trudeau was talking tough. Some are even urging boycotts of US products.

"I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau", Trump told the crowd.

One particular source of his ire recently has been Canada's supply management system, which levels tariffs of up to 300 per cent on imported dairy products.

The Office of the United States Trade Representative's notes that the United States had an $8.4 billion trade surplus with Canada in 2017.

Trudeau said he was preparing retaliatory measures against the United States.
