Trudeau 'stabbed us in back' on trade, says Trump chief economic adviser

Trudeau No sign of US common sense prevailing

The United States and Canada swung sharply towards a diplomatic and trade crisis on Sunday as top White House advisors lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a day after U.S. President Trump called him "very dishonest and weak".

After he left the G7 summit in Quebec on Saturday, Trump posted a series of Tweets criticizing Trudeau for staying firm on the counter-tariffs imposed in reaction to US tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum. But he acknowledges that Trump might not realize he's jeopardizing U.S.jobs by triggering a series of tariffs and counter-tariffs with Canada.

In an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union," Kudlow argued that Trudeau's critique amounted to a betrayal of the G7, as well as the U.S.

Kudlow added that Trump had made the decision to pull out of the agreement in an attempt to save face ahead of his historic summit with North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, in Singapore.

Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak", among other things.

His tweet, shortly after leaving Charlevoix in Quebec, came in response to what he claimed were "false statements" by the summit host, Canadian premier Justin Trudeau.

EU nations are set to impose counter-measures on United States goods in response to tariffs on European steal and aluminium, but Mrs May cautioned against tit-for-tat retaliation that might lead to a trade war.

The editorial board criticized Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro's comment Sunday that there is a "special place in hell" for Trudeau, a remark he made after the summit ended.

With politicians on both sides of the House supporting retaliation against penalties on Canadian steel and aluminum, John Ries, a professor with UBC's Sauder School of Business, says that might lead to US President Donald Trump backing off.

"We're going to fix that situation", he said.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he said.

Mr Trudeau and the European Union have vowed to take retaliatory action next month over USA tariffs on steel and aluminium. We have put up with Trade Abuse for many decades - and that is long enough.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker is set to debrief Commissioners about the G7 and underline the commitment made by the EU in the communiqué to "continue to stand up for an global rules-based multilateral system". A senior U.S. administration official said that Trump had been angered by Trudeau's comments.

"Ultimately that's what you want", Trump said.

Trump again presented the U.S. as the victim of unfair trade deals during the interview with ABC on Tuesday. For instance, Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs are expected to cause a drag on U.S. economic growth and result in a net loss of American jobs.
