Trump takes more swipes at Canada and Trudeau after tense G7 summit

Trump told Macron EU worse than China on trade

"Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal", Trump tweeted, as he criticised Canadian tariffs on imports of USA milk. "It's kind of insulting".

Saying Trudeau is "dishonest & weak", he threatened "tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!"

Republican lawmakers had mixed reactions to President Donald Trump and top White House aides lashing out at America's closest allies - in particular, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau - after last week's G-7 summit in Quebec. I've worked with him in good faith getting through a good communique on Friday and Saturday. Hayden added that Trump's actions left him with "a mixture of sadness and, frankly, anger because no country deserves to be treated that way".

Navarro said Trump "did the courtesy to Justin Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit".

In a tense interview today with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union", Trump's economic advisor Larry Kudlow lambasted Trudeau. "When there's a trade war, everyone's a loser", Khan said.

Chief trade adviser Peter Navarro said there's "a special place in hell" for Trudeau and anyone else who negotiates in "bad faith" with Trump.

"So, he holds a press conference", Kudlow said of Trudeau. We have not yet seen the communiqué, but we're told by credible sources, such as Chancellor Merkel, that you have reached compromise language on trade and tariffs in this. "I think it might be a Canadian identity", newspaper columnist John Ivison tweeted.

As expected, these countries are now retaliating with tariffs of their own that will hurt US farmers, manufacturers and blue-collar workers, the same people who voted for Trump.

North Korea media breaks tradition to report summit
Shortly after arriving, Kim visited with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who is scheduled to meet with Trump on Monday. Authorities have beefed up security around the hotels where Trump and Kim (Saint Regis) will be staying in central Singapore .

"They should have said to him, 'God speed, you are negotiating with the insane nuclear tyrant in North Korea, and we are behind you, '" Kudlow added.

Mr Trump attacked North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as "obsolete and disproportionately too expensive" during the presidential campaign and returned to the theme after the G7 summit in Canada.

For good measure, Trump sent out more tweets the morning of June 8 before his arrival in Quebec - "Canada charges the USA a 270% tariff on Dairy Products!"

Trump and his deputies lashed out at Trudeau for telling a news conference at the end of the G7 conference that Canada would not be pushed around on tariffs - a point the Canadian prime minister had made several times before.

In a meeting at the White House during the French president's visit to Washington in April, Macron suggested the United States and France should work together to resolve shared trade problems with Beijing, prompting Trump to make his remark, a person in the room told CNN.

Trump's attacks have Canadian businesses that use aluminum and steel very anxious, said Ontario Conservative MP John Brassard, who added that there is real concern that there will be serious job implications in very short order.

"Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".

And it concludes with a direct shot at Trump, calling on the House to "reject disparaging and ad hominem statements by USA officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute".
