Canada's PM is back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time, trade adviser says

U.S. President Donald Trump talks with Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a bilateral meeting at the G7 Summit in Charlevoix, Quebec, Canada, June 8, 2018.

"PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that. he 'will not be pushed around.' Very dishonest & weak", Trump said in his tweet.

The United States has alienated Canada and other allies by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, arguing that they pose a threat to USA national security.

"The president wants to go on the trip", Larry Kudlow, Trump's top economic adviser, said of the summit in Canada. Trump aides accused Trudeau of betrayal of Trump for his statement on retaliation.

The US President is also making threats against Canada's dairy producers and automakers.

While foreign policy issues such as North Korea do not usually have much bearing on the polls, Mr Trump's outburst against Nato allies, the European Union and Canada appeared aimed at striking a chord with voters who support his America First agenda.

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

Mr Trump also said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive auto industry, throwing the G7's efforts to show a united front into disarray.

The back-and-forth between Trump and Trudeau highlights the growing tensions between the USA and some the country's closest allies. The tariffs, which also take effect July 1, will last until the US ends its trade action. The French presidency had earlier condemned "fits of anger".

Mexico has put tariffs on American products ranging from steel to pork and bourbon, responding to US President Donald Trump's metal tariffs and taking aim at Republican strongholds ahead of US congressional elections in November. Thomas Wright, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, told reporters that for Trump's first 500 days, "these countries generally were bent over backwards not to criticize President Trump". Mr Trump said the move would protect domestic producers that were vital to U.S. security.

"The countries are all going to retaliate - what you will get is a period of time where each of the countries is going to have to evaluate the impact of the new tariffs". "The European Union is brutal to the United States. I expect the Trump administration will double down and try to impose more tariffs", he added.

European officials said Trump had tried to water down the language in the draft communique on the WTO and rules-based trade.

Threatening such a change could be another effort to advance the negotiations in order to secure a congressional vote on a revised deal by the end of the year, according to worldwide law firm Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg.
