ARCTIC BLAST: Trump SLAMS Canada’s Trudeau Over G7 Comments

14 June 2018

"Let me correct a mistake I made", Navarro told the audience at the Wall Street Journal's annual CFO Network conference Tuesday.

"I left the [G7] meeting and I'll be honest, we are being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries, very, very seriously", Trump said.

Navarro, a supporter of tariffs to help reduce the USA trade deficit and a longtime critic of China, turned his anger at Canada over the weekend as a Group of Seven meeting hosted by Trudeau ended in disarray and trade threats.

Trump followed through on his tweet by pulling us support for a G-7 communique.

The Canadian prime minister has been under attack from various members of the Trump administration since his remarks at the G7. The the end of May imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum imports against Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

As the summit closed on Saturday, Trudeau issued a rebuke of Trump's proposed tariffs, declaring that Canada would not be "bullied" by the U.S. That prompted a biting response from Trump, who called the Canadian premier "very dishonest" and "weak".

By throwing Canada under the bus - with language we rarely use about our actual adversaries - Trump and his subalterns were sending a message of American weakness, not strength.

Trump again presented the USA as the victim of unfair trade deals during the interview with ABC on Tuesday.

All over social media groups of Canadians have started to say they will be boycotting American goods, travelling across the boarder and passing along tips on how Canadians can defend Canada's honour with purchasing power.

Bitcoin prices were manipulated
Bitcoin isn't all it has been cracked up to be, according to a new report by a University of Texas professor. Both Tether and Bitfinex have regularly come under suspicion over price manipulation in recent months.

And Trump and Trudeau are supposed to be friends.

"He'll learn that's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada".

Though Trudeau had made these comments many times before, Trump and his advisers quickly responded. "And that comes right from Air Force One".

Canada, she said, is still seeking a "win-win-win" NAFTA deal, while adding that Ottawa will remain "absolutely resolute in defense of the national interest".

"You look at the relationship between Canada and United States, that boundary between us is the longest, most open successful unmilitarized boundary in the history of world", he said.

Kudlow accused Trudeau of acting in bad faith and hindering trade relations. "Then Justin acts hurt when called out!"

The Canadian Prime Minister initially said Trump's claims that Canadian steel posed a national security threat were dishonest. Under his administration, the U.S. has already clobbered its top export market on trade, running a $2.7 billion surplus, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

"I don't care how mad, how angry you are, you don't treat the head of state of another country like that unless you are getting ready for a military engagement of some kind", he said.
