Timeline of Donald Trump's war of words (and trade) with Justin Trudeau

Timeline of Donald Trump's war of words (and trade) with Justin Trudeau

Trump refused to sign a joint agreement with US allies at the end of the summit and threatened to cut off trade with them unless deals were renegotiated.

Mr Trudeau did not immediately respond, but his office said on Saturday after Mr Trump withdrew support for the communique that the Prime Minister had not said anything in his closing news conference he has not said to Mr Trump before.

"We are polite and reasonable", Trudeau said, "but we also will not be pushed around".

Former U.S. Ambassador Bruce Heyman, who served under former U.S. President Barack Obama, has also backed Trudeau.

His comments set the scene for renewed clashes between Mr Trump and other world leaders at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit next month. The agenda for this year's meeting revolves around equality, women empowerment, working on climate change and most importantly Investing in growth that works for everyone [economically], well it worked for everyone other than President Trump. 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".

Larry Kudlow, the White House economic adviser, also characterized Trudeau's remarks as a "betrayal".

Adding to the USA trade deficit is "the fact that the United States pays close to the entire cost of NATO-protecting many of these same countries that rip us off on Trade (they pay only a fraction of the cost-and laugh!)".

The purely symbolic vote of solidarity came a day after White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said: "There is a special place in hell" for Trudeau for his "bad faith diplomacy" with Trump, as a dispute over trade escalated.

Justin Trudeau did a press conference. Navarro later clarified that his comments were "the sentiment that was on Air Force One after that".

"I think that this was maybe a bad event for [Trump] to attend given what the stakes are today in Singapore", she continued. The prime minister, who has said Trump's tariffs were insulting, later retaliated through threatening to impose over $16 billion in retaliatory tariffs on a laundry list of American products.

"We would hope that the U.S. will similarly honour the commitments that they have made", he said, speaking before a parliamentary statement on the summit by Prime Minister Theresa May. Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%.

Updating the House of Commons on the G7 summit on her return from Canada, Mrs May said: "This was a hard summit with, at times, some very candid discussions".

On his departure from Canada, Mr Trump shattered any semblance of an agreed position between leaders, as he ordered U.S. officials not to endorse a joint communique.

But the tension between traditional Republican orthodoxy on trade and foreign policy is being tested and so far very few Republicans appear ready to confront Trump.

But after Mr. Trump left the summit he announced he was pulling out of the statement, citing statements by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a post-summer press conference, where Mr. Trudeau said Canada had been "insulted" by Mr. Trump justifying his tariffs on national-security grounds.
