Trump pledges to punish 'the people of Canada'

At the G-7 summit in Quebec last week, what should have been a standard meeting between close allies turned acrimonious when Trump and his top deputies launched a slew of personal attacks on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

USA adviser Peter Navarro said there is a "special place in hell" for foreign leaders like Trudeau, which he has since apologized for.

"My mission was to send a strong signal of strength", Navarro said at the event, according to the Journal.

Trump says he watched that news conference on his way to Singapore, and was upset because he thought he and Trudeau had had a positive meeting in Charlevoix.

The U.S. -Canada spat escalated when at a news conference, Trudeau said Canada would take retaliatory measures next month in response to Trump's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

Last Friday, Trump - feeling slighted by Trudeau, who took a tough stance toward USA tariffs by saying he wouldn't tolerate being "pushed around" - launched an attack via Twitter, calling the leader "dishonest" and "weak".

Later Wednesday evening during a major foreign policy speech, Canada's top diplomat broadened her focus with a sweeping defence of something Trump has little time for - the global rules-based system that the USA led in creating after the Second World War.

The president also withdrew US support for a G-7 communique.

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.

At the administration level, the official said, Canadians concentrate on data in the face of some of the President's mischaracterizations of the trade relationship.

Trudeau had attempted to keep relations cordial in comments to reporters as he arrived at a cabinet meeting in Ontario.

"Here in Canada, our federal government is delaying putting tariffs in place until July 1st", Aylward said. "This is about our economy and millions and millions of jobs". "We just shook hands!"' Trump said.

The United States imposed new tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum less than two weeks ago on a "national security" basis.

"My Fellow Americans, let's all #ThankCanada for things we love they've brought to our lives", he wrote, naming a number of people, including Drake, Leonard Cohen and comedy series SCTV. "The wounds will heal, but the question [is] how does the relationship get impacted?" "We look forward to looking at the details of the agreement".
