US President Donald Trump said the recent G7 spat-dominated meeting in Canada was "good", but in the same breath warned the host country would pay for the comments of its prime minister.
He also addressed the viral photo from the G-7 summit, in which Merkel is shown planting both hands firmly on the table as she addresses Trump, who is seated before her with his arms crossed wearing a dispassionate expression. Merkel also said the European Union would "act" against the USA trade measures. In tweets, Trump insulted Trudeau as "dishonest" and "weak".
It says that MPs "reject disparaging ad-hominem statements by US officials, which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute". Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%. The compromise on that issue resulted in language that said "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade and investment, while creating reciprocal benefits, are key engines for growth and job creation". "$800 Billion Trade Deficit ..."
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is cheering Donald Trump's bid to broker a deal to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons, but he's keeping mum on the US president's persistent trash talk against Canada. "The European Union had a $151 Billion Surplus-should pay much more for Military!"
"Germany pays 1 percent (slowly) of GDP towards North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, while we pay 4 percent of a much larger GDP".
"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Navarro said. I say, push them around? Kudlow was referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Canada-U.S. relations seem to have reached their lowest point in more than a generation after Trump tweeted Saturday that he was withdrawing support from a G7 joint communique, while complaining he had been blindsided by Trudeau's criticism of U.S. tariffs at a closing news conference. Freeland later told reporters that "we don't think that's a useful or productive way to do business". The Trump administration doesn't like the WTO and didn't want it mentioned, the source said.
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". Can't do it in person.
The stern statement prompted nearly immediate backlash from Trump, who abruptly removed the US from a joint G7 communiqué he had backed just hours earlier "based on Justin's false statements at his news conference and the fact that Canada is charging massive tariffs to our USA farmers, workers and companies".
"I have great friendships", he told Stephanopoulos.
He said Trump "did the courtesy to Justin Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit". Among other things, she said the government should be preparing to keep pace with corporate tax cuts and tax breaks south of the border. U.S. officioals too, took on Mr Trudeau. Trudeau stuck our president in the back. And we were waiting for the document to come back so we could read it. Top adviser Peter Navarro added further fuel to the fire, saying there is a "special place in hell" for the Canadian leader. But the trolled Prime Minister had his staunch supporters too. From promoting democracy and to fighting terrorism, "we're on the same page".
There were two crucial points that didn't satisfy the USA delegation, the Canadian media points out.
Trump said Trudeau "probably doesn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions and I see the television and he's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States and I say 'push him around?"
