Trudeau criticism will cost Canada `a lot of money´

Trudeau criticism will cost Canada `a lot of money´

Donald Trump's trade adviser has apologized for saying Canada's prime minister deserved a "special place in hell".

Was Trudeau wearing fake eyebrows at the G7 summit?

"In the short term, we quarrel from time to time and certainly this is one of those quarrelsome moments", Tousignant said, recalling that Pierre Elliott Trudeau, the current prime minister's late father, had his own issues in 1971 with then-president Richard Nixon, who famously referred to the elder Trudeau as an "asshole".

The attack on a longtime ally and its leader drew sharp criticism. The U.S. had a trade surplus with Canada of $8.4 billion a year ago, according to the Office of the United States Trade Representative.

The admission was a rare act of contrition from U.S. President Donald Trump's White House, where public apologies are few.

The Manitoba Co-operator looks at how Canada could soon be a country that's home to small farms and big farms - with little in between.

Yet his top diplomat, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, downplayed the severity of the rift.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said Saturday as the gathering concluded after Trump had left early for the Singapore summit with Kim Jong Un.

The escalating clash cast a shadow over the Trump's nuclear talks with Kim and led critics to question why the president was bashing US partners while appearing to cozy up to one of Washington's bitterest long-time foes.

He asserted, with no evidence, that Trudeau only dared to say Canada wouldn't be pushed around because he didn't think Trump, who was on board Air Force 1 en route to Singapore, would see him.

The comments came after the United States and Canada got into a spat at the G7 meeting in Canada this weekend. "That will not stand". Trump refused to endorse the group's joint statement, said Russian Federation should be readmitted, and traded barbs with Trudeau over an intensifying trade conflict. "Kim must not see American weakness".

Ted Cruz, R-Texas, added. "It was very friendly", Mr Trump said. Can't do it in person.

Asked whether allies had any reason to worry about Mr Trump's commitment to any deal he reaches with North Korea following his abrupt withdrawal from the G-7 communique, one US official appeared to brush aside the notion, saying other countries have got used to how the US President operates internationally. -Canada border. Trudeau told reporters that imposing retaliatory measures "is not something I relish doing" but that he wouldn't hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests".
